Form & Verdict

Shot up the weights after winning five in a row (2m1f-2m4f; three hurdle races and two chases) and was soundly beaten over fences at Wetherby on Boxing Day; something to prove today, including stamina, but his jumping held him back last time and he could go well if finding greater fluency.

Has won his last five, in three hurdle races and two chases; made light work of beating a subsequent winner over hurdles at Sedgefield last time (2m4f, soft), having previously won off the same mark there over fences (just as easily); now a stone higher but he's on a roll.

Bids for a hat-trick, having scored at Exeter (2m3f, good to firm; final run for David Pipe) and Kelso (2m5f, good to soft) the last twice, taking chase record to 10-36; this is a slightly better race but he remains well handicapped on peak form.

Stamina to prove and he hasn't been at his very best this season, but he was a fair fifth at Carlisle (2m5f) four weeks ago and has dropped below his last winning mark; has won on soft ground here and is not ruled out.

Should benefit from this drop back in distance, having looked a non-stayer over 3m1f last time; sole start at Carlisle resulted in a success off just 1lb lower in March (2m4f, heavy); tongue-tie now added to usual hood; interesting returned to this venue.
