Won off today's mark over hurdles at Fakenham (2m4f, good) in October 2022; made quite promising seasonal/chase debut at Hereford (2m, good) last month but was not travelling well when brought down at Hereford 19 days ago and his overall record is not compelling.

Verdict

All of these have something to prove. MISS BAMBY wasn’t at her best last time but she was running well before then and is close to her last winning mark. It is a five-month absence that’s the worry for Bells Of Stamford but he’s the big danger if ready to roll.[Alistair Jones]
