Form & Verdict

Flat winner who won a maiden over hurdles; 0-6 as a chaser but has placed form and was only 5-2 when conceding lengths at the start on return from a break at Exeter (2m3f, soft); wisely wasn't given a hard time once he decided to set off; has his quirks but capable of going well.

J: Shane Quinlan

Has stamina to prove today and is not one for maximum faith, having virtually refused to race three outings ago and looked reluctant to line up last time; however, he drew clear on the run-in to open his chasing account at Leicester (2m4f, soft) three weeks ago and today's 4lb higher mark ought to be manageable.
