Two Flat wins; 0-6 over hurdles but has gone well in two handicaps and he held every chance when falling in a maiden on his penultimate run; entitled to strip fitter for last month's effort.

Can be considered on his two wins last autumn but hasn't found that form in a pair of starts this spring; last of four at Ffos Las 20 days ago and blinkers now fitted in an attempt to perk him up.

Made the frame in his first two handicaps (2m1f/2m) but hasn't beaten a rival in his last two, albeit over longer distances; dropping back to the minimum can only help matters.

Consistent mare but she's 0-19 and found nothing for pressure after travelling well deep into the race at Uttoxeter (2m, good to soft) two weeks ago; solid place prospects but opposable in a battle.

Largely consistent maiden who has been placed several times, most recently in a blanket finish at Plumpton (2m, good to soft) where she idled in front but kept on; unseated early here last time after clipping heels and she was one of the favourites that day; should have a say once more.

Form & Verdict

Looked the likely winner only to fall two out on his jumps debut at Newton Abbot; ran moderately next time but he chased home an in-form rival at Fontwell and that's something to build on now handicapping.

Form & Verdict

Off the mark over hurdles in a three-runner maiden here (2m1f) and followed up on his chase debut in a small-field handicap at Sedgefield; won that despite not jumping great and he should deal with this 7lb higher mark back over hurdles.

Good effort at Southwell last month where he would have gone even closer but for a mistake two out; good ground ideal and, while he has quite a few miles on the clock, enters the argument.

Made all in three-runner maiden hurdle in September and followed up in four-runner chase at Sedgefield (2m1f, good) a few days later, despite lacking fluency at times; below form when switched back to hurdling last month and jumped very badly to his left on occasions when pulled up over fences at Taunton (2.25) yesterday.

Form & Verdict

Chase winner in France during early 2021; his first worthwhile British form when second in first-time cheekpieces at Fontwell (2m1f, good) and surprising to see those aids and also the tongue-tie left at home for this; best watched.

Showed the benefit of a wind op when making all to win readily by 12l over C&D (soft) in March, his 24th start over hurdles, and bounced back from a lesser effort when very respectable fourth at Kempton (2m, good) last month; returns here with good 5lb claimer Freddie Gordon booked; shortlisted.

Has yet to get overly competitive over hurdles, including two handicaps; his recent Flat form is nothing to get excited about.
