The new visor (kept since, replacing cheekpieces) worked a treat when he won at Kelso (3m2f, heavy) over Christmas for the second year running; he hasn't sparked that often in the last two years, though, showing little on latest outing; beaten just over 20l when sixth and fifth in the last two Eiders, so others look more solid.

The new visor worked a treat when winning a 3m2f handicap at Kelso (heavy) over Christmas for the second year running; 4lb rise won't prevent another bold show if he's as good again (not guaranteed).

Form & Verdict

Just 1-15 over fences but the win was gained over C&D and he posted a couple of good efforts last month, latterly when third of five over C&D behind Gipsy Lee Rose; swaps visor for first-time blinkers today; ought to be on the premises again.

Consistent sort who won by 1l from Heritier De Sivola at Ayr (3m, soft) in February, then beaten a head by that rival at Hexham (3m, heavy) last time; edging up the weights but every chance he'll again be thereabouts.

Largely consistent 8yo who was too strong for dual subsequent winner Heritier De Sivola when scoring in second-time blinkers at Ayr (3m, soft) last month; meets that rival on 13lb better terms here (if Joe Williamson's reduced claim is considered) but Philip Kirby's runner has undoubtedly shown major improvement in the meantime.

Form & Verdict

Gained all three chase wins over 3m3f at Sedgefield, the latest when keeping on strongly to lead close home last month; slightly disappointing when warm favourite there on latest outing and away from favourite track today but may yet have more to offer and James King is a good booking.

Exploited some help from the handicapper when keeping on stoutly for narrow win at Kelso (3m2f, soft) in November but wasn't quite in same form on either subsequent outing (3m2f/3m) and today's drop back in trip is probably not ideal; wore cheekpieces last time; usual visor back on today.

Not as good as she was but kept on stoutly for narrow win at Kelso (3m2f, soft) in November and didn't run badly when fifth (behind Camp Belan) from out of the weights there the following month; back on correct mark here; could have a say.
