Form & Verdict

Won on stable debut at Ffos Las (3m, good to soft) in February and good second at Taunton (2m7f, good) next time; pulled up at Wincanton (3m1f, good to soft) last month and has something to prove after that, but the first-time cheekpieces could prompt a swift return to form; he's a player if so.

Two competitive runs in 3m1f handicap chases before running well from out of the weights in last month's cross-country race at Cheltenham; evidently on good terms with himself and should be a factor.

Dual course winner over fences (3m, good) and ran well from the front when second at Worcester (2m7f, good) last month, after a break; unlikely to be aided by any lingering juice in the ground here but still features prominently in calculations.

Form & Verdict

Has regressed but in first-time blinkers (retained) he took a step back in the right direction when fourth at Uttoxeter (3m, soft) last month, fading late on; there will be less emphasis on stamina on the better ground here, which could be ideal, and there's every chance he will be in the mix.
