Form & Verdict

Strong stayer who won one of his points over 3m4f and he stayed on well to be second over Exeter's 3m last time; balance of point form suggests he'll be vulnerable, with ground to make up on Pyleigh Court and Theshoddytradesman.

Quintins Man

12st 4lb

J: Mr Darren Andrews

T: J Heard

An 18-1 winner of a 3m1f hunter chase on this card 12 months ago; returned here in March on the back of good runs but reportedly found the ground too testing when pulled up, as was Premier Magic; a greater concern would be his subsequent defeat on good at Flete Park; certainly a player if bringing his 'A' game.

J: Mr Darren Andrews

T: J Heard

Progressive 7yo who secured C&D honours at the hunter chase meeting here last May (good) and he was too good for useful opposition on good to soft at Wincanton in February (3m1f); 2m6f looked an inadequate test at Haydock last time, even on heavy; two of his five point wins have come on soft; not without hope of joining the party.

Has a solid record, mostly in points, for current trainer; shaped well at Cheltenham (3m2f) on the return to hunter chase company, eventually running out of steam (still finished second) having looked the likely winner when going clear after three out; interesting over this sharper test.
