Expensive to follow for Dan Skelton, beaten at 3-1 or shorter in four runs for that yard; ran right up to his best when second over 2m here on last month's stable debut (winner won again since); Brian Hughes retains the ride and the step up in trip should be fine; more appealing than many.

Ex-Dan Skelton; ran creditably when placed in two maiden hurdles last spring (including on soft) and sound enough run when second on chase debut at Huntingdon in October (2m, good); has since been sold for £12,000; makes stable debut on return from a break and may be better for the run.

Form & Verdict

Wants good ground and with a tongue-tie replacing his usual hood he ran out a clearcut winner over slightly shorter at Hexham (4lb lower); remains to be seen whether he'll continue the good work as his profile is very up and down.

Didn't jump great when winning at Southwell (2m, good to soft) but the hot favourite in second was even worse in that department; it could be dodgy form but they did at least pull clear; raised 5lb.
