Form & Verdict

Raced lazily on his comeback, since when headgear has done the trick, his sole defeat in his last three starts coming when bumping into a fellow improver at Nottingham; this race is more competitive but there can't be any complaints about a 2lb rise.

Poor in Ireland but landed a gamble for his new yard in the spring and, having found 1m2f an inadequate test here next time, fairly bolted up over 2m latest; a 7lb rise will test him but he remains unexposed as a stayer.

Dual hurdles winner in the spring who's proven round switchback tracks; the return to this trip should suit and he's down 2lb; one of the more interesting runners at a likely each-way price.
