Form & Verdict

Much better than his current mark in the past but his only real bright spot in the last 14 months was a second at Uttoxeter (3m, good to soft) in March; may have needed the run at Warwick on his return last month but he finished a well-held third of six and needs to leave that form behind.

Form & Verdict

Won off 4lb higher over C&D (soft) in February 2020 but he missed 2021 and wasn't at his best in three runs early this year; returns from another absence but he's had a second wind operation and needs watching in the market back at this track.

Won off 4lb higher at Doncaster (3m, soft) in February 2020; has had only four runs since but after another wind operation he was a creditable second back at Doncaster on his seasonal return three weeks ago; was a well-backed favourite in that race and he's respected off an unchanged mark.

Smart in his prime but his only win from eight hunter chases this year (under Freddie Gingell) was in a match; however, he is well treated on his best 2022 form and was a respectable second back in a handicap at Lingfield (2m4f, good to soft) on his recent return after 192 days off; looks interesting if he can build on that and this step back up in trip is a positive.

Nothing like the force of old and his only win in the last three seasons came in a two-runner hunter chase in February 2022; runner-up in a small-field handicap in December but that's probably not good enough form and he was soundly beaten 12 days ago.

Tough sort having scored four times during a very busy 2022 (has raced 23 times this year); however, has proved far from consistent since the last success; receives plenty of weight from his rivals, having dropped to a handy mark, but not sure what to expect.

This will be his 23rd race of 2022; registered four wins in May-July at around 2m4f-2m5f but has run with credit in only one of his last nine starts (three runs back); despite his fall in the weights, he does not look the percentage call; connections run four.
