Form & Verdict

Got off the mark over fences in first-time blinkers at Hereford and backed it up with solid third to Tip Top Mountain over C&D later in January when derailed by bad error three out; still low mileage in this sphere and he's weighted to go well off an unchanged mark.

His form at 3m this season reads fine and he was out of the weights when tailed off in the Welsh National, after which he made the frame in another marathon at Lingfield; probably handicapped about right but should go well.

Improvement when winning on reappearance at Wetherby (3m, soft) then good third behind Animal at Sandown (3m, soft); ran well for long way in ultra-attritional Welsh National over Christmas (3m6f, heavy; well-beaten fourth) and this progressive 8yo could go well if that hard race hasn't left a mark.

Scored in good style at Wetherby last month and creditable third at Sandown (again 3m on soft) 19 days ago; going beyond 3m (first time today) may well suit him but position 12lb out of the handicap makes for a very stiff task.

Made it four wins for the season (all on good but has run well on soft) when comfortably beating solid yardstick at Worcester (2m7f) last August; not at that level since and extremely fortunate to win at Hereford last month, after a break, but it was over an inadequate 2m and there was encouragement in that run; Peter Bowen and Sean Bowen won this with 40-1 shot Henllan Harri in 2017 who, like this fellow, was tackling his longest trip yet; one to note.
