Form & Verdict

Awarded race at Uttoxeter (2m5f, good) last month after clearcut winner had taken the wrong course and completed double when making all to score by 8l there (2m4f, good) on Saturday; has 7lb penalty to shoulder but won't mind what the weather does and has obvious claims.

Form & Verdict

Seemed to be getting his act together over fences when second at Catterick (1m7f, good) in February and combination of soft ground and right-handed track may have been against him at Market Rasen the following month; still unexposed over this sort of trip; one to consider.

First past the post by 18l in a chase in May, only to be disqualified for taking the wrong course, but both subsequent runs over jumps were very disappointing and it's hard to know what to expect from him on today's Flat return; best form has been on good or slower ground.

Finished well for unlikely win at Market Rasen (3m, good to soft) in November and was seemingly back in good form when close seventh at Warwick (3m, good) last month; interesting to see whether combination of drop back in trip and first-time cheekpieces pay dividends.

Kept on well to open account at Southwell (3m, good; first-time tongue-tie) ten days ago, her 11th chase and her 27th career start; it's hard to tell whether she'll build on that success but, nevertheless, she enters calculations; carries 7lb penalty but due to go up by that much anyway.
