Front-runner; 14-1 winner at Wetherby (3m, soft) in January but he's been disappointing since, pulled up over the same C&D four weeks ago; only 1lb higher than the winning mark but needs to rediscover his spark.

Two wins over fences, the latest off a 6lb higher mark over C&D last May (good to soft); decent effort from out of the handicap when second at Wetherby last time (3m, soft; visor on instead of blinkers); same headgear here; a possible.

Form & Verdict

Went off long odds for all three runs over hurdles and didn't achieve all that much, beaten at least 36l each time; however, this Irish point winner (3m, soft/heavy) now makes his debut over regulation fences off a modest mark; has to be considered, especially if strong in the market.

Doncaster last time was a reminder he can throw in the odd poor effort, and he's not defied a triple-digit rating since autumn 2021; all-the-way C&D winner (soft) before now, however, and it was a deeper renewal of this race that he recorded a solid third in last term; player.

Went close at Musselburgh (2m7f, soft) in January and comfortably went one better at Sedgefield (3m3f, soft) next time; of interest on that winning performance and he's better than he showed at Wetherby last time, but this 10yo needs to leave that run behind and is 5lb out of the handicap today.

Went close at Musselburgh (2m7f, soft) in January and built on that with comfortable win at Sedgefield (3m3f, soft) from Coolmoyne; it was a first victory for this 10yo so there are reservations about him defying a 6lb rise and following up, but if he repeats that latest form he'll be tough to beat.
