Form & Verdict
Four-time hurdle winner who has taken well to fences, winning at Southwell in May and running creditably when third to higher-rated opponents at Perth (also 2m, good) two weeks ago; bit to find with Nero Rock on these terms but he's likely to give it his best shot.

Form & Verdict
Took a long time to get off the mark over fences but scored twice at Sedgefield (2m3f/2m1f) in May, making all each time; the cheekpieces now go on after a tame finish over 2m4f here eight days ago; all four wins on good ground; the pick on form if he can bounce back.
