Form & Verdict

Just his third chasing start when romping home at Market Rasen 13 days ago; not sure how strong that form is but he could have been hit by more than the 7lb rise inflicted by the handicapper; this is a deal harder but hard to ignore as he bids to make it 3-4 over fences.

Front-runner who won two handicap chases in a row last summer (2m1f, soft/good) before easy novice hurdle win at Bangor (2m3f, good); however, he hasn't been at his best on his three runs since and has to bounce back.

Won in good style at Cartmel a month ago, taking his record for Lizzie Quinlan to 3-9; tongue-strap worn for the first time then is retained and 7lb rise no guarantee to stop him going close; acts on good and soft.

Won three times last year and back on the scoresheet over C&D (soft) last Saturday, following wind surgery; had just a short head to spare in that three-runner race and this is much more competitive, but it was certainly a positive performance and he's gone back up just 1lb; not ruled out.

Early casualty on last month's chasing debut but no mistake with an emphatic Stratford win three days later; drop in trip may not be fully in his favour but 7lb penalty leaves him 2lb below future mark; obvious chance.

Left the Greenall and Guerriero stable after some disappointing runs in the summer but, following a break, made quite promising debut for Joanne Foster at Sedgefield (2m3f, soft) last month; needs to build on that performance here but has become well handicapped and the forecast less-testing ground ought to be in his favour.
