Form & Verdict

Not an instant success over fences but he's won his last two and it was never in much doubt after travelling strongly throughout at Newton Abbot last time (2m, good); 5lb higher for this but he's on a roll and the longer trip shouldn't trouble him.

Found out by his career-high mark at Warwick (2m4f, good) but that was another very sound run in what's been a good season already; accurate jumper who has plenty going for him.

Enjoying an excellent season and he made it 4-5 for the term with a cosy success in four-runner handicap chase at Newton Abbot (2m5f) 24 days ago; up 4lb but this sound jumper rates a player once more.

Made a successful chase debut at Downpatrick in May (2m3f, good to yielding) and ran okay next time at Down Royal; can put a line through his Bangor run when he got worked up before the start; should go well.

Shooting up the weights but he's right in the groove and jumped particularly well en route to his 12l verdict at Southwell (2m4f, good); only a 5yo and looks the one to be with under a penalty.

Three-time chase winner since the spring (2m1f-2m4f); gave good account when second of four behind all-the-way winner at Plumpton (2m1f, good) last month and a recent 1lb drop helps; ought to be on the premises.

Scored comfortably at Ffos Las (2m3f, good) and the following race there 12 days later reportedly came too soon (tailed off); should deal with this mark (5lb above that latest win) if back in good order.

Front-runner on a hat-trick but he's up in grade after winning off 5lb lower over 2m1f here two weeks ago and there's likely competition for the lead.

Made all for a C&D win last June (good) when 4lb lower; similar tactics were employed when he backed that up with a Stratford win (2m1f, good) next time; handicapper has had his measure since but he returned to better form when second over hurdles here (2m, soft) latest; player.
