First win since his days in Ireland when narrowly repelling the market leader in a 2m good-ground handicap at Stratford 12 days ago; this 4lb higher mark won't be beyond him if continuing the good work.

Dual good-ground hurdle winner for Claire Harris in summer 2022 but seen only once since, when fourth for Brian Barr at Uttoxeter (2m, good to soft) last July; market likely to guide on debut for latest new yard.

Raised 7lb for winning over C&D winner in July and that seemed to find him out at Uttoxeter when beaten in the region of 10l; well held on the Flat subsequently; probably vulnerable.

Would have won easier at Worcester (2m4f, good) but for some premature easing on the run-in but he went out like a light next time at Uttoxeter; usually consistent in the main and could bounce back from that.

Generally consistent and gained a second hurdle success when overcoming premature easing at Worcester last month; 4lb higher and this looks potentially more competitive but he has to be considered again.

6 yo Gelding

Form & Verdict

Has run moderately either side of a three-month break but he did win a Market Rasen handicap (2m, good) off only 4lb lower in May, so the ability is there should a first-time visor (replacing cheekpieces that worked well initially) trigger a return to form.

Form & Verdict

Four-time AW winner from 7f-1m2f; 0-5 over hurdles but runner-up in both his handicaps and a late mistake was no help at Uttoxeter last time (2m, good) when finding a bigger-priced stablemate superior; now goes in the cheekpieces that worked for him on the Flat; gets the vote.
