Leaves Richard Fahey at the age of eight having won eight times, most recently over C&D in November; new yard going well but he wouldn't want it to get tactical if still ridden cold.

Debut for Mick Appleby off 186-day break at Newcastle last week saw him get a dream run up the stands' rail before scoring narrowly at 16-1 (1m); can't discount under 5lb penalty with Tom Marquand taking over.

Pulled up in two hurdles last summer but he returned to the Flat for new yard with a Newcastle win (1m) last month followed by a close call at Wolverhampton (8.6f); his progress stalled when a well-held fifth on Tapeta last time but he still looks feasibly treated on his penultimate form and his first win came on Polytrack; dangerous if he can bounce back at this new trip.

Pulled up in two hurdles last summer but much better back on AW Flat for excellent new stable in recent weeks, winning over C&D before narrowly denied on follow-up bid at Wolverhampton a week ago; races from a 3lb lower mark than at Wolverhampton so his claims are obvious.

Goes well at this track and ran a solid race over 1m 11 days ago, keeping on to snatch second close home; handicapped to go well and although dropping back to 7f isn't sure to suit, this is likely to be well run.

Belatedly off the mark with a wide-margin win at Thirsk (1m4f, soft) in the hands of William Pyle; ran a bit flat when only fourth at Hamilton after escaping a penalty and now he's 5lb higher; that Thirsk win might be dodgy form.

Form & Verdict

Capable on his day for Richard Hannon but hasn't settled in three runs for John Butler and this small field is unlikely to help on that front; perhaps the fitting of headgear (hood) will suit and he should capitalise on his falling mark at some point.

Last two wins came off breaks of 142 and 131 days but is fine with a quick turnaround; course runs this year suggest he may find a few better handicapped, though; cheekpieces discarded.
