Form & Verdict

Looked likely to win at Ffos Las last month, on first start since November, but 2m3f seemed to stretch his stamina and he was collared at the final fence; just three attempts over fences and should be a leading player back at 2m, especially if cheekpieces offer some help; can jump right.

T: Ben Pauling

All wins between June and August and he has figures of 312 returning from over six months out, so won't necessarily need the run (has had wind surgery since last outing last October); trying to cash in on lower hurdles mark makes sense, and he's 3-7 under Luca Morgan.

Climbed the handicap in completing a summer hat-trick which included a C&D success (good); found another weights rise a step too far when well beaten by his sole rival here last month; missed recent engagement at Wetherby (self certificate); not ruled out but others look better handicapped.

Much improved since fitted with cheekpieces in the summer, completing hat-trick at Market Rasen (2m3f, good); beaten 8l by sole rival at Stratford last time but the winner boosted the form by following up; has risen in the weights but has solid credentials.

Form & Verdict

Two C&D wins last summer and, with this combination of aids refitted, returned to form with an easy Ludlow success a month ago; 7lb rise might not stop him following up if repeating that display.

Alighted upon a moderate class 3 at Stratford in June (2m1f, good) and only 1lb higher tonight; record of 1132222124 around here, but poor jumping display over C&D latest needs a little bit of forgiving.

Runner-up at Uttoxeter this month (2m4f, blinkered for the first time); previously beaten in hunter chases and, while dropping back to 2m might suit, will need to produce more than he has in recent races.

Very well treated on his old form but last success was three years ago and he was tailed off on his drop back to 2m at Worcester (good; 7-1) when last seen in June; has something to prove after 135 days off and others are more convincing.
