Won regional Nationals over 3m4f/3m5f at Fakenham, Sedgefield and Fontwell, the last two in small fields in the mud last autumn; never better than on last two starts when placed in the Sussex National at Plumpton and the 4m1f Eider (third to Anglers Crag) at Newcastle, but to win this requires a fair bit better still.

Form & Verdict

Tailed off/pulled up on final two runs last season but may have benefited from a break and he enjoyed a solid campaign otherwise, including a win at Haydock (3m4f, soft) last November; this course winner ran well when fresh last autumn and could play a leading role if back on song.

Lost out only by a nose in quite valuable handicap hurdle at Cartmel (2m6f, heavy; also suited by good ground) in July but was no match for the easy winner when second on last month's chasing debut at Stratford (3m, good) and needs to build on that performance.

Form & Verdict

Soundly beaten fourth in the Highland National at Perth (3m6f, soft) in April when last seen and needs a bigger performance today; however, he can be better than that, as evidenced by his staying-on second at Market Rasen (3m3f, good to soft) last December; goes well fresh and not ruled out.

Hinted at a return to form at Wetherby and then made most of the running to win by 13l in a small field at Carlisle (2m4f, soft); that trip looked on the sharp side for this thorough stayer so all in all it was a highly positive performance; back up 7lb but has competitive form off this sort of mark.

Won over C&D in October 2021 on British debut and he's well handicapped on last season's form; encouraging fourth on his reappearance at Sedgefield (3m5f, soft) in October but he's struggled the last twice (3m3f/3m) and has something to prove now back down in trip.

Form & Verdict

10yo who hasn't been at his best over fences, hurdles and on the Flat on his last three starts and he'll have something to prove if testing conditions prevail; however, he's with a top Irish trainer and stamina very much looks a strong suit; could go well on first outing beyond 3m2f.
