Form & Verdict

A win and two seconds from his three chase visits to Southwell, all last year; the win came on heavy going and he rallied strongly when going down by a nose over 3m2f here last time out, so today's concern is whether this will be a sufficient stamina test.

Ridden four times by James Turner last season, including when this race (soft) saw this veteran open his account at the 30th attempt, coming from the back at 100-1; 4lb higher today and in the doldrums for his other five runs last term; it seems a bit bold to predict that lightning will strike twice.

Seemingly better for a tongue-tie when winning his first two chases (3m, good; 3m2f, good to soft), the latter quite hard fought by 1l; his disappointing run at Newton Abbot probably came too soon only a week later and he remains on a workable mark.
