Form & Verdict

Had some respectable hurdle form; won two points last spring; couldn't keep tabs on the front two at a crucial stage back from break over 2m6f here 12 days ago but he did keep on stoutly to take second place off Getting Closer; could be fitter now; a serious contender.

Second and first in 2m6f/2m4f hunter chases at Leicester (good) earlier this year; held when falling in his latest point; needs a career best by some margin to win this and the new visor is a grey area (replacing usual cheekpieces).

Form & Verdict

Promising effort in and around horses who had bits of form under rules when runner-up in a maiden point two starts ago but he couldn't hold his position behind Santon and Getting Closer over C&D 12 days ago; work to do.

Maiden point winner on good to soft last spring; time still on his side but he was pulled up in a similar race to this last June and was out of contention when falling in a restricted point last month; best watched.

Form & Verdict

Eight point wins; not yet hacked it in hunter chases but a tussle with the promising winner took its toll late on over 2m6f here (good) 12 days ago and he was overhauled by Santon for second on the run-in; should be very close between them again.
