Tends to come good in the spring, winning at Carlisle (2m4f, heavy) last March and back on the scoresheet at Ayr (2m4f, good) three weeks ago; did it readily in a small field last time and remains feasibly treated back up 4lb; he's on the shortlist.

Off since early November when prevailing in a blanket finish over C&D, his second win here; 2lb rise is no big deal provided he returns from a break in the same form.

Form & Verdict

Completed a hat-trick in December and then third at Kelso before finding the ground too deep at Carlisle; that was on heavy but even soft isn't absolutely ideal and he may be too high in the weights now anyway.

Won at Exeter (2m3f, good to firm) in October on final run for David Pipe and he's 2-2 for this yard following wins here (2m5f, good to soft) and at Carlisle (2m5f, good to soft); remains well treated on old form, including over staying trips, but it's a long time since he ran well on deep ground.

Form & Verdict

Second then first in two C&D handicaps (soft/heavy) before proving no match for the favourite dropped to 2m back here 12 days ago; good jumper who should make a bold bid returned to his best trip, despite a career-high mark.

Cashed in on a much reduced mark when a 40-1 winner at Hexham (2m4f, good) in September, but he struggled in his final two runs (hurdle/chase) in the autumn; handles most ground but he needs a major revival back over hurdles after four months off; cheekpieces removed.

Second in this last year (good) and he capitalised on his much-reduced mark at Hexham (2m4f, good) last month; however, this 10yo has struggled more often than not over the last 12 months and was well beaten at Kelso (2m5f, good) last time; others are more solid.
