Found Grade 1 novice far too hot at Aintree festival in April but won Warwick maiden (2m, soft) in good style in March and is back in much calmer waters for this handicap debut; proven over 2m4f; must be considered.

Has won with something to spare under James Turner the last twice (2m4f, soft), particularly at Bangor three weeks ago; he's gone up another 8lb and is in a much hotter race today, but things have clearly clicked for this 7yo and it's possible he remains ahead of the handicapper.

Two wins this season, the latter under James Turner at Wetherby (2m3f, soft) last month; recent 4lb rise does not look excessive and further progress is not out of the question; respected.

J: James Turner

T: Nigel Twiston-Davies

Shot up the weights after winning by 12l at Perth (2m4f, soft) in September and there's a suspicion he remains a shade high in the handicap, but he ran well when second of fourth at Chepstow (2m3f, heavy) last time and might not be far away.

Still 8lb higher than when winning at Wetherby (2m5f, good to soft) in April but has remained in good form since, most recently when placed at Hexham (2m4f, good) three weeks ago; likely to give this another good shot.

Just one win from his 28 hurdle starts and that was back in 2021; no match for the winner when 9l second at Carlisle (2m4f, heavy) three weeks ago but it was still a creditable performance and he ran well at up to 3m (including on good ground) in the summer; could be thereabouts.
