Good third at Catterick last September (2m, heavy); best run since when third at Yarmouth on Wednesday (1m6f, good to soft; tongue-tie tried) with Sophar Sogood well behind; tongue-tie retained and cheekpieces now added; 4lb out of the handicap but still a possible.

Form & Verdict

Narrow winner of a Navan handicap in April last year (1m5f, heavy); patchy form after that; close eighth in a handicap over same C&D (good to yielding, no blinkers) on reappearance; interesting back up in trip with blinkers back on.

11st 2lb

J: Henry Brooke

T: Adrian Paul Keatley

His form can be up and down and he was soundly beaten on the Flat a fortnight ago; however, he won in that code two starts ago and was a convincing winner over hurdles at Doncaster (2m, good) last December; just 3lb higher today and he's 2-2 on good ground; interesting contender.

Form & Verdict

Three wins last season, the third over 1m6f here in September (heavy, won by 15l); pulled hard when 8l seventh of 15 over 2m2f here on reappearance; should fare better this time.

Consistent gelding who beat all bar a Beckett improver over 2m at Nottingham the last time; perhaps best on good ground but handles some cut underfoot; respected.

0-14 on the Flat but has won three times on good/good to soft over hurdles; tailed off in an Ascot handicap hurdle when last seen out (March) but fair AW run prior to that; bit to prove.

Won three minor hurdles last August-October (good or good to soft) but was pulled up in a Taunton handicap when conditions were in his favour and it was just an okay run back on the AW three weeks ago; no obvious significance in the return of cheekpieces and others are far more intriguing.

Sophar Sogood

J: Daniel Muscutt

T: John Butler

Returned to winning ways when comfortably accounting for ten rivals in a 2m handicap at Kempton in September (Class 6); not so good since but he's feasibly weighted should this be one of his good days.
