Creditable fourth in a couple of notable 2m4f handicaps here (good/soft) this season and looks a solid contender in this similar event; addition of cheekpieces could squeeze improvement out of him; retains some potential in any case, with being only a 6yo; big player.

J: Harry Skelton

T: Dan Skelton

Well-held sixth in the Grand Sefton at Aintree last month; has plenty of placed form off higher marks, albeit over 2m4f, at this track; stamina to prove over this new trip and long losing run continues.

Form & Verdict

Second-season chaser; had plenty to spare at Ascot (2m5f, good to soft) on reappearance and didn't quite get home over 3m at Kempton subsequently; may have more to offer back down in trip; remains of interest.

He has an in-and-out profile but won in fine style at Ascot (2m5f, good) in November when last seen, landing that race for the second consecutive season, and a 9lb rise may not stop him if he can reproduce that form; won a bumper on heavy and all five of his wins have come when fresh.

Having first run for 231 days when winning this very decisively 12 months ago off 5lb lower; hasn't progressed as expected in the meantime, latterly finishing well beaten at the Galway Festival, but looks on a handy mark if he can revive.

J: Lorcan Williams

T: Ben Pauling

Won a good 2m5f handicap at Ascot last November; absent since a poor showing in a valuable Cheltenham contest in January; trainer could offer no explanation at the time; interesting that he is sent on this mission after six-month break.
