10st 13lb

J: Danny McMenamin

T: Lisa Harrison

Rejuvenated 8yo who won three in a row at Perth (3m, good-heavy) in August/September and has continued in fine form to finish second at Carlisle (3m/3m2f, soft) the last twice; continues to climb the weights (up 2lb since last time) but he's clearly thriving and could be in the mix.

Back to form last month with wins over 2m4f at Uttoxeter (good to soft) and Worcester (soft); seems to stay 3m; 8lb higher than last win but has an obvious chance.

Veteran with an ordinary strike-rate but does like these conditions; should be better for a recent spin over hurdles but surprise if there's not one or two too good back over fences.

Tough sort who won three times at up to 2m7f last season; acts on any ground but not been at his best the last twice and needs first-time cheekpieces to bring about some improvement.
