Form & Verdict

Hat-trick at Plumpton earlier in the spring but winning run came to an end off this mark at Ffos Las 19 days ago; usually makes the running and can jump left, which wouldn't be a help around here.

Five-time hurdle winner at up to 2m2f; respectable front-running third at Sedgefield (2m1f, soft) and reportedly unsuited by stepping up to 2m3f on heavy ground when pulled up at Catterick; better expected here but others are more intriguing.

Consistent and wasn't winning out of turn when beating 13 rivals at Musselburgh last month (first time in this combination of aids); may have been fortunate then and likely to need a shade more to defy 4lb rise.

Not beaten too far latest two starts but hasn't really threatened to add to last season's three wins; can often be headstrong and usually sports a hood so interesting to see what effect a visor has.

Went close at Ayr (2m, good to soft) in November and won four-runner handicap over this C&D (soft) in January; solid third of six over C&D (soft) last time but there's a suspicion today's task will prove too competitive.
