Form & Verdict

Course legend but it's a year since he gained a sixth win here and not as good as he was, it seems; has run well at this trip but all wins at shorter; often finds himself embroiled in a battle with Sword Of Fate for the lead, which usually counts against both of them.

Cartmel specialist who is returning from a 220-day absence; game winner (by a nose) at the popular Lakes venue last August, before pulling up here in October; most effective over 2m1f and will presumably have other summer objectives; safer to look elsewhere.

Both this season's wins have been at 2m but stays at least 2m4f; flopped at Perth last month and subsequent wind surgery indicates what the problem might have been; first attempt at this track and will need his best to beat some course regulars.

Form & Verdict

Has taken a real shine to this place lately and gained a second course win when gamely fending off Lermoos Legend over 2m1f+ last month; had earlier beaten Sword Of Fate convincingly over C&D and 3lb rise for the latest win still leaves him as a strong contender.
