7yo who completed a hat-trick in the first half of the season and ran another fine race when second of six over C&D (heavy) just before Christmas; there's no reason why he won't give his running but he is up against a few progressive types here.

T: Jonjo & A J O’Neill

Well beaten over C&D (soft) last time; he can be effective on soft/heavy going but better ground may be preferable and he's very much of interest on his fine efforts last autumn, when winning at Kelso (3m2f, good) and finishing second of 20 at Cheltenham (3m, good to soft); on the shortlist.

T: Jonjo O’Neill

Last three wins on good ground but has won on soft and heavy; off 12 weeks, creditable fifth of ten at Newbury (3m, heavy) in February, fading only from the last; the cheekpieces he wore to good effect in the autumn return now and his yard's good record in this affords him plenty of respect.

Second in this last year (good) and he capitalised on his much-reduced mark at Hexham (2m4f, good) last month; however, this 10yo has struggled more often than not over the last 12 months and was well beaten at Kelso (2m5f, good) last time; others are more solid.

Hasn't won since landing a four-timer at around 2m in the summer of 2021 (good/good to soft); well handicapped now and should fare better over this trip and on better ground (too soft on his two most recent runs); couldn't rule out.
