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.

Race rather fell apart when easily taking a Fakenham mares' handicap in January (3m, good to soft); not really any wiser as to whether she can defy a 5lb higher mark as she made a serious error at Ffos Las on sole start since, but lightly raced enough over fences to believe she might.

Near-6l third in a Ludlow handicap hurdle (2m5f, good to soft) in May was improved form; helpful if he could see out his races better, but starts life in chases at a realistic level.

Hasn't improved for the switch to fences despite the addition of a tongue-tie and then cheekpieces added; longer trip may be worth a try (from the family of Red Marauder), but 6lb out of the weights.

0-4 for Peter Bowen since the autumn but was stalking the leaders before coming to grief at penultimate fence over C&D (soft) in November and didn't have the race run to suit his patient tactics when keeping-on sixth at Plumpton (2m3f, good to soft) in December; can make his presence felt if first-time visor has positive effect.
