Form & Verdict

Disappointing at Lingfield (3m5f, soft) four weeks ago, when beaten before stamina may have been an issue; however, prior to that he stayed on strongly for a good second over this C&D (heavy) on his second chase start and he's a player if tapping back into that promise.

J: Nick Scholfield

Has produced shockers in two of his last three starts but he won the race in between over 2m4f on heavy at Haydock when coming clear at the finish; this far shouldn't be an issue provided his jumping stands the test.

Made it 0-20 when below-par fourth at Uttoxeter a fortnight ago (2m4f, heavy; Nine Nine Nine third); however, he's finished second no fewer than 11 times, including over this C&D (heavy) last month, and he can be thereabouts if bouncing back from last time.

Second six times in a row last season (2m3f-3m1f) and has found one too good again on his last two outings, taking his record to 0-19; no reason why he won't figure again but needs to prove he can get the job done.

Creditable fourth at Wetherby (3m, heavy) in November and runner-up at Newcastle (2m4f, good) in December; still looked to be in good form at Catterick last time, when failing to stay 3m6f (pulled up), and he could play a leading role now back down in trip.

Third in this last year off a 6lb higher mark, and is effectively running off that mark here from 6lb out of the handicap; second in a four-runner contest at Aintree over Christmas but much more needed here.
