Form & Verdict

Useful hurdler at his best but only 1-9 over fences; could have run better on Ascot comeback for all that it was a strong race but he's on a good mark and has won on heavy; blinkers replace cheekpieces.

Rejuvenated in these blinkers in December, winning two in a row from the front in small fields (2m5f/2m3f, heavy/soft); however, tailed off at Chepstow (2m, heavy) in February last time and isn't easy to fancy after that.

Form & Verdict

Ran a pleasing comeback race at Ascot especially as that 3m trip seems to stretch him; everything happened too quickly for him on good ground when pulled up back there 18 days ago (2m5f); these are more his conditions.

T: Gary Moore

Soundly beaten in a match at Fontwell (2m5f, heavy) last time but he bumped into a rejuvenated rival, who has followed up, and he's now dropped below his last winning mark; the testing conditions are right up his street and he's one to consider in first-time cheekpieces.

Bled when pulled up in this 12 months ago; ran a pleasing race on comeback here 20 days ago especially as that 3m trip seems to stretch him; however, he may need soft or heavy ground to defy this sort of mark.
