Two wins this season, over C&D off 5lb lower in November (good to soft) and over 2m3f off 2lb lower at Market Rasen in January (good to soft); fair run in first-time blinkers (retained) last time (2m6f); chance.

Made it 2-3 over fences when scoring at Market Rasen (2m3f, good to soft) in January and he had an excuse on his step up to 3m at Market Rasen last month; that was another blip in his patchy profile but he still has potential in this sphere and is a big player if he can bounce back again; first-time blinkers replace cheekpieces.

His rules wins (on various ground) have come over shorter, as did his good second at Market Rasen (2m3f, good to soft) last month; however, he's at a sharp track today and this in-form 8yo is one to consider.

Good second at Exeter (2m3f, good to soft) on seasonal debut in October; not in the same form again since but slow ground was put forward as an excuse for last month's disappointing effort, and he's now too well handicapped to rule out.

Runner-up first three starts this season, including over C&D (soft) on reappearance, but had no obvious excuses when only fourth of six at Market Rasen (13-8 favourite) in January; needs first-time cheekpieces to have a positive effect.

Generally very disappointing since heavy-ground win on hurdle debut in Ireland in 2021, and didn't show a great deal in two 2m3f handicap chases for new stable last month; goes beyond 2m4f for first time under rules here; others have much less to prove.
