Three course wins during the winter (8.7f-1m4f) but they were in Class 6 company and he's become expensive to follow of late; one or two others appeal more.

Won four times here (8.6f-1m4f) last AW season and made the frame in two low-grade handicap hurdles towards end of 2023; better effort back on the Flat since when fourth of 11 over 1m4f here 13 days ago; successful on the previous occasion he was partnered by Danny Tudhope; likely to be thereabouts.

Form & Verdict

AW/hurdle winner for Gavin Gromwell but didn't sign off for that yard in the best form, losing her way after finishing second at Dundalk (1m4f) in November; changed hands for 7,000gns; could go well if revived by a change of scenery.

Record of 1-9 for Sir Mark Prescott; returned to form when close third behind Lexington Knight here last month (1m4f) and went two better last week (1m6f) when delivered from off the pace; that race panned out well for him but he goes unpenalised here with George Eddery again on board.

Won twice over C&D last year and not a lot wrong with his recent placed efforts here; the return of Alec Voikhansky's claim is welcomed and he has to be of strong interest.

All four AW wins have been on Tapeta and he's yet to shine on Polytrack, albeit from a limited number of runs; close up over this far at Wolverhampton last time but around here others appeal more.

Form & Verdict

Well beaten over hurdles at Cheltenham in October on his final appearance but he has some good form in that discipline and he is a dual winner on the Flat (1m2f/1m3f); could easily feature.
