Form & Verdict

Bounced back from a disappointing run when keeping on well to score at Uttoxeter (2m, soft) last month and posted another good effort when second to well-backed winner over that C&D 16 days ago; today's slightly longer trip will suit; likely contender.

10lb higher than for last year's win in this race but went in again over C&D in December when much too good for a subsequent winner; latest Ayr third also respectable and returning here has to be a bonus.

Form & Verdict

Low-mileage 6yo who made winning handicap debut last March and was creditable second in valuable series final here (2m, good) later that month; found Class 3 company a bit too hot in December and not seen again since but will be dangerous if fully tuned up for this.
