Form: U421-7

Last run: 93 days

W: 11st 10lb

8 yo Gelding

OR: 118

Form & Verdict

Tailed off in only previous run this season but he looks interesting on his best form last spring, including a win off 4lb higher at Huntingdon (promoted to first); returns from another break but conditions should be fine and he needs a close look for in-form yard.

Left alone to win selling handicap chase over C&D in April on final run for Gary Moore; however, he was in rear when unseating mid-race at Warwick on his stable debut then finished down the field at Plumpton last time.

Form & Verdict

Well treated on some old chase form Gordon Elliott but he has a poor completion record since his last win in 2021 and has been pulled-up in last two runs; with another new yard now and has plenty to prove back from 103 days off; cheekpieces added.

Poor completion record since his last win in 2021 and was tailed off when falling in a selling handicap chase the last time; has a lot to prove, but this is a bad race and perhaps a visor can help matters.

Latest win for Gordon Elliott was in September 2021 and has failed to complete almost as often as he's got round since; low-key debut for new trainer over fences in October and although much the highest rated in the field he is risky.

Form & Verdict

Dual winner over 3m3f at Sedgefield (soft/good) this season and he bounced back with a clear second there 18 days ago; takes a big drop back in trip but both his wins have been under positive tactics and he had some form at 2m4f last spring; respected.

Both wins for previous yard came over 3m3f at Sedgefield; yet to find top form for current stable; doesn't look the percentage call.

Form & Verdict

Weakened when favourite at Huntingdon (2m7f, good to soft) last month but that was after two runner-up efforts including in a marathon handicap at this track; now drops back to 2m5f but he's versatile trip-wise and has claims if he can get back near his best; 2lb out of the weights.
