Good pointer (5-8 in them) and has enough hunter chase form to make him a serious contender; however, heavy defeats at Exeter and Cheltenham in latest two starts temper confidence; blinkers (mixed record in them) return.

5-8 in points; 0-13 over regulation fences but gave pretty good account when second in Newton Abbot hunter chase (3m2f, good) in May and probably won't be far away if in similar form in this handicap; now in the care of Gary Brown (same owner).

Recorded a 128 RPR when winning a Southwell handicap a year ago (for Richard Newland); pulled up last December on only start for current yard but ground was against then; bit to prove but if it did dry to good or quicker, he'd be firmly in the reckoning.

Lightly raced (just 11 starts) for his age and back from a year off when close third at Carlisle in March; form of that questionable but still looks a leading light in this, assuming the ground does not dry too much.

Modest form over fences last year, albeit in just the three starts; has found some form in his recent points and was 7l too good for Steel Express in the latest, but he has plenty more on his plate this evening.

Once useful but appears to have lost most of his former ability; missed a golden opportunity to record a point win last month when unseating after being left solo; no real appeal even with Alice Stevens to help.
