Form & Verdict

Beat two rivals on fast ground at Ludlow (2m4f) in October, after a break, and was placed off today's mark behind Bretney over C&D (good to soft) the following month; not quite at best when returned to Ludlow in December but still makes appeal here.

Has struggled more often than not this season and he was pulled up at Huntingdon a fortnight ago; however, this two-time course winner was a good third over C&D (soft) two starts ago and could be a contender now back here if the first-time blinkers (replacing cheekpieces) have a positive effect.

Won by 8l at Sandown in February (3m, soft) despite some scruffy jumping and very nearly followed up at Warwick (3m5f, soft; 4lb lower); probably needs significant cut underfoot and therefore last week's non-completion on good ground at Cheltenham is forgiven; possibilities.
