Form & Verdict

Safely held in both handicaps for Neil Mulholland (2m3f/2m4f) but was clear second from out of the weights on recent stable debut at Bangor (2m7f, good); effectively 8lb lower from correct mark here (due to be 10lb higher in future); up in trip again today; obvious chance.

Has done well since joining Adam West and made it 2-4 for the yard with last month's Ffos Las win; up 7lb but one of the few in this field with recent form and looks a strong candidate again.

Improved performer for new stable in recent months, notably when winning by 6l at Fontwell (3m2f, good to soft) two starts ago; flopped when warm favourite at Uttoxeter a few days later but no surprise if he bounces back quickly; cheekpieces refitted.

Clear second from out of the weights on stable debut at Bangor (2m7f, good) last month and didn't need to better that performance to win by 6l off correct mark at Fontwell (3m2f, good to soft) a few days later; 10lb above his winning mark here but has evidently turned a corner.

Form & Verdict

Useful in his prime but this is his level nowadays; stayed on for close third of six under Benjamin Macey here (2m5f, good) eight days ago and, on that evidence, he's well worth a crack at today's longer trip.

Off the mark on second chase start when a 10l winner of a handicap at Worcester last week (3m, good to soft) despite running from 10lb out of the handicap; 3lb well in with his penalty so clearly of interest if handling this quicker ground.
