Form & Verdict

Very useful handicap chaser in his prime and a three-time point winner for current stable since December, most recently when beating What A Glance in mixed open at Lockinge (3m, good; front pair well clear) three weeks ago; throws in a few duff efforts too but is a big player on hunter chase debut.

J: Mr Zac Baker

Smart handicapper in these colours when at his best and continues to pay his way, last time justifying favouritism in a hunter chase at Stratford (2m6f, good to soft); has form at this track and fully entitled to go well.

J: Micheal Nolan

T: Philip Hobbs & Johnson White

Useful handicapper chaser (particularly at Sandown) who returned to form when a close second on his cross-country debut in a C&D handicap (good to soft) in January; also effective on soft/heavy; the third Delta Work is much better off at the weights today, but this fellow is closely matched with the winner Back On The Lash on these terms and holds each-way claims once more.
