Form & Verdict

Had got himself well handicapped given his highs for Paul Nicholls and he returned to winning ways over C&D in December (good to soft), having rallied best after losing his position; subsequent absence is probably no big deal and a 5lb rise is fair.

Lightly raced 7yo who came on a bundle for his first run in 11 months to win with a bit in hand over this far on good ground at Hereford three months ago; has never raced on soft so subsequent three-month break might be put down to him waiting for his ground and, although 12lb higher for this, he may well have more to offer (2-4 over fences).
