J: Theo Gillard

T: Donald McCain

C&D scorer off 2lb lower in June 2022 (good); nearly as long as he last raced over hurdles, and possible this rates a confidence fillip after his jumping let him down over fences back here last time.

T: Donald McCain

Has disappointed on both appearances this year but he won two 2m1f chases last summer and is not yet fully exposed over fences; had wind operation since last seen and there's nothing wrong with his mark.

Form & Verdict

Irish challenger; hasn't been pulling up any trees over hurdles and when last seen over fences he was tailed off in a handicap at Ballinrobe in May; has a lot to prove but this is very weak.

Able to dominate when winning two of his last three starts at Sedgefield (2m1f & 2m3f, good) and rising steadily in the weights - a combined total of 14lb - as a result; is afforded respect, but with the suspicion that further rain would serve to lessen his chance of adding another win to his CV.
