Form & Verdict

Hasn't threatened to win on his first two chase starts (2m4f/2m3f) and he's unproven at this trip; however, those were still fair efforts the last twice and it's possible he'll be suited by 3m; could have a say.

Had wind surgery in July and returned to form with a close second at Stratford; not at the same level when a soundly beaten third the next twice but those weren't bad efforts and he could go well in this modest race.

Ran out a clearcut winner at Doncaster (3m, good) but he reminded us of his inconsistency when failing to give his running at Wincanton; goes without Ned Fox's claim here and he'll need to be right on it.

Form & Verdict

Has won just one of his 30 starts but he's run just three times for this yard and posted pretty encouraging efforts on his last two outings in May (2m5f/3m); a contender if fully tuned up on this return to action.

Regressive 9yo who is yet to add to his slow-ground win in Ireland in 2021 and achieved very little when remote second to Toad Of Toad Hall here (3m2f, good to firm) in May; arguably ran better than bare form suggests when last of four at Cartmel (3m1f, heavy) in July but remains a difficult horse to enthuse over.

His reduced mark appeals on form as recent as last autumn and he's run well (over hurdles) on both visits to Uttoxeter; one to watch in the betting but he's hard to fancy judged on this summer exploits.

Lightly raced under rules and his mark continues to fall; wears a first-time hood and a market check is advised, but he's been tailed off/pulled up in his two handicap chases and a major turnaround is required.
