Form & Verdict

Won well over hurdles at Bangor (2m7f, good to soft) in March and good second over 3m2f next time; 30l defeats in two subsequent chase starts (May/October) suggest he is best watched today, however, as does this trip.

Came good over fences at fourth attempt, at Southwell (3m, heavy) in February, but was not seen to quite the same effect when well-held third on last two outings and would appeal more on slower ground.

Irish maiden point win last October; mostly modest under rules but third of seven at Ffos Las (2m, good to soft) last time gives him a squeak.

1-7 in points and 0-12 under rules; failed to build on a third over fences earlier this season but the ability is there to run well off this low a mark and he's not had much racing over hurdles.

Landed 2m handicaps at Taunton (heavy) and Wincanton (good to soft) on his last two starts last season and made further progress when second off this mark at Ludlow (good to soft) in May when last seen; big chance if returning on song after his summer break.

Three chase wins this season, the last two over 2m this spring; unraced beyond 2m4f under rules but stays that trip perfectly well and has form in 3m points; evidently in prime form; interesting to see how he fares.

Dual chase winner this season, most recently when dropped to 2m at Hereford (soft) a fortnight ago; 7lb rise asks a question of him but he's evidently in very good nick.

Won easily at Wincanton (2m4f, good to soft) in January; he needs to prove he can win off his increased mark but has run well in defeat the last twice (2m3f/2m4f, good to soft/soft) and should be thereabouts.

Bled from the nose when pulling up at Worcester in July and she ran as if something was amiss, jumping badly to her right, at Fontwell on latest outing; competitive mark judged on plenty of other form but a note of caution has been sounded.
