5-25 over jumps, including two wins last autumn; not seen since an unseat in November; only three runs on Flat, easily the best of those on first occasion when second in a Leicester maiden (1m2f, soft); needs to build on that but this is his Flat handicap debut and he needs a close look.

Runner-up at Carlisle (2m4f, heavy) in a race he had won 12 months earlier on good ground off a similar mark; has done his winning on stiff tracks but he's handicapped to be very competitive.

Difficult to win with (2-30), but can't be knocked for consistency having finished runner-up ten-times; has acquitted himself respectably on both previous visits to Sedgefield, recently when a keeping-on third to Deep Charm (3m3f, soft); good ground usually aids cause.

Beaten on last 18 starts going back to March 2022 but he was runner-up four times in a row last summer (2m4f-3m, including on heavy) and it was his first run since when a fair third of five at Sedgefield (3m3f, soft); this course winner could improve for that latest run and is not ruled out.

Winning hurdler who is 0-6 as a chaser but he's threatened once or twice and 3m looked a stretch when last seen at Uttoxeter in September; on a decent mark but his record fresh is no more than okay.

0-7 over fences but has become quite well handicapped on some of last summer's form and returned from break with very encouraging third on slower-than-ideal ground at Haydock (2m4f, good to soft) last month; not yet proven over this far under rules but will warrant consideration if the rain holds off.

Quirky sort but he got off the mark in this sphere at Market Rasen (3m) in December and posted another good effort when runner-up in 2m7f Leicester handicap following month; that form is working out well so he merits serious consideration off the same mark.

Form & Verdict

Won his two handicaps as a hurdler at Musselburgh and it was at that venue he made a successful start over fences (2m4f handicap on good to soft), albeit by the skin of his teeth; reportedly finished lame when last of four off this 7lb higher mark on his return visit; still lightly raced and has to be of interest.
