Form & Verdict

Came from a long way off the pace to win under well-judged ride at Huntingon (2m4f, good) last month and is now 3-6 over fences; it might be wise to treat that form with a degree of caution but, nevertheless, his overall profile remains appealing.

2-4 since switched to chasing in the spring; ground any worse than good to soft may not be ideal for him but he certainly didn't run badly when sixth at Market Rasen (2m5f, good) five weeks ago and may be seen to better effect now back on a left-handed track.

Kept on well to win heavy-ground stamina test over C&D in January and is only 1lb above that mark now but had rather mixed record last season and it's hard to know what to expect from him on first start since April.

Inconsistent during last season's first chasing campaign but he posted a win at Ayr (2m4f, heavy) in January and was a very close third there (2m4f, good to soft) on last month's reappearance; remains lightly raced and is not ruled out in a first-time tongue-tie.

Won at Wetherby (2m5f/3m, good/soft) on final two starts last season and very close fourth in blanket finish on reappearance at Ayr (2m4f, good to soft) three weeks ago, when not helped by a mistake at the final fence; this unexposed 7yo could appreciate the step up in trip and is a key player.

Untested over a staying trip under rules but he won at stiff Carlisle (2m4f, heavy) in March and kept on well when second at Ayr (2m4f, good to soft) in April; there's some stamina in his pedigree and this trip is worth a go; could improve for fair reappearance fifth at Ayr and he's not ruled out.

Comes here after winning at Kelso (2m5f, good) and Hexham (2m4f, soft) this autumn and is now 7-18 over fences; today's race is more competitive but his current mark is probably not beyond him, and he's evidently in very good nick.
