Kept on well for close second behind a next-time-out winner at Southwell (2m, good) last month and won by 5l at Perth (2m, good) yesterday; there can be hope this longer trip will be fine and he's a leading contender under a penalty if repeating his latest form.

J: Adam Wedge

T: L J Morgan

Fair efforts this winter in his first two handicaps (fences then hurdles); improvement needed today and he's going into the unknown stamina-wise, but his Leicestershire trainer has done well at Musselburgh and this lightly raced 6yo is open to improvement in new headgear.

W: 10st 12lb

7 yo Gelding

OR: 89

Form & Verdict
Won two-finisher selling hurdle at Uttoxeter (2m, good; first-time blinkers) last month and wasn't beaten far when fifth of six there on chasing debut three weeks ago; eight of 12 scheduled fences were omitted that day, though, and the form may not be reliable.
