Form & Verdict

Has made the frame in nine of his ten starts in handicaps including a win at Chepstow (2m good to soft) last October, but he has also suffered some heavy defeats as when last of four there (3m, soft) last month; this trip may suit him better, but he might again find one or two too good.

Dual winning hurdler who was returning from 256 days off when beaten a length by Pilsdon Pen at Exeter (2m1f, good to soft) last November; meets him on the same terms, but finished well beaten over the same C&D (heavy) in January (has won on similar ground); returns from four months off and needs to bounce back.
