Won a point and was second in two bumpers; ran okay to be beaten 14l in his second handicap here in February when he kept finding for pressure; held by One For The Wall on that form but has each-way claims.

Made somewhat shaky start to his chasing career this season but has really got his act together lately, and looked in excellent nick when drawing clear to win by 13l at Plumpton (3m1f, good) three weeks ago; went up 9lb for that but still commands respect.

Defied near enough a stone higher mark in the staying handicap hurdle on this card 12 months ago (soft); hasn't been that convincing over fences but went a long way to putting that right when second to an in-form rival over C&D three weeks ago.

Probably flattered to finish so close to the in-form winner in a small field over C&D (soft) three weeks ago but they were miles clear of the rest; has to be a strong contender off the same mark.

0-15 and best runs have come over hurdles at Plumpton, where he was never going last time after early interference (tried cheekpieces); neither chase run was wildly encouraging (the latest on penultimate start) and others are safer.

Came good for Debra Hamer with ready win at Worcester (2m7f, good) in July and has finished second over that C&D twice since; probably still on a workable mark and should be fine on today's slower ground; shortlisted.

Form & Verdict

Showed a liking for good ground when third in Tramore bumper last August; modest maiden form in Ireland and his stable/handicap debut at Southwell (2m, good) offered little encouragement for the short-term future; this longer trip (unraced beyond 2m4f) may help but wouldn't bank on it.

Mixed fortunes in handicaps over hurdles and fences since October but he did seem better for leaving the headgear off when runner-up over C&D in February (good); every chance with a repeat of that form.

T: Anthony Honeyball

2m7f hurdle winner (soft) at Chepstow in November off 7lb lower; matched that effort in defeat at Lingfield next time; that form would see him involved but there's a bit to prove after falling in a chase and running no sort of race back over hurdles last time.

Form figures of 212 in staying handicap hurdles (good to soft or soft) after undergoing wind surgery and didn't take to fences at Wincanton last time; might not have any great margin for error off this mark but respected nonetheless.
