Form & Verdict

Well beaten last time at Ayr (2m4f, good to soft), following a second wind surgery; better than that and having been dropped 15lb this season is worth considering.

Took advantage of a reduced mark on his second run after wind surgery when making all to score by 12l at Newcastle (2m4f, heavy) last month; back up 7lb in the weights but he remains well treated on his best form and is versatile ground-wise; major player again.

Form & Verdict

Winning Irish pointer in December 2021 (3m, yielding to soft); unexposed under rules; won a Carlisle novice hurdle in February 2022 (2m1f, heavy) and was third in an Ayr handicap in December (2m4f, good to soft); wasn't particularly fluent on chase debut last time but should improve for the experience.

Won one of his two runs over hurdles; 0-7 as a chaser but runner-up four times and mistakes probably cost him the race at Haydock last time (3m4f, soft); would be dangerous off this 2lb higher mark if he can find greater fluency; cheekpieces added.

Both wins have been over 2m at Southwell, latest a handicap chase on good to soft; now 4lb higher and an interesting contender back up in trip although this forecast softer ground is a slight concern.

Ended long losing run with an easy win here (3m1f, soft) a fortnight ago; on that evidence his claims shouldn't be dismissed off today's 8lb higher mark, but this 11yo is in a tougher race and is unproven at the trip.

10yo who isn't as good as he was, but he's on a reduced mark and the form of his third of six at Sedgefield (3m3f, soft) last month reads well; there's slightly less emphasis on stamina here, which could help.
