- Bet totetrifecta At totesport.com Handicap Chase (Class 5)
- 2m 4f 20y, Good (Good to Soft in places)
- 7 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Not raced under rules for over 900 days (November 2015) and was last seen in action winning a 3m Hexham Point-to-Point for Gary Rutherford in May 2017.
Lightly raced and went close from a 2lb lower mark at Musselburgh in January on his penultimate start (2m4f soft) when beaten a short-head by Nefyn Bay; good ground point winner in April 2017.
Failed to complete in three starts for this handler since arriving from Ireland for £8,000 (ex Noel Meade). Sports first time cheek-pieces.
Not stood all that much racing for his age with both chasing successes coming across at Ayr (2m4f soft). Ground conditions will be very different to what he encountered at Newcastle last month.
Struggling lately, but theoretically sits on a mark which should make him competitive. Not won for over 15 months when staying on strongly to score by 2L from Casual Cavalier at Ayr (2m soft).
A Sedgefield winner for Charlie Longsdon (2m3f good) in August 2016, but it's been a case of barren times since. Falling sharply down the weights, but with good reason. Offered a bit more of a glimmer at Hexham latest.
Now 0 from 14 under rules, and has shown very little in four starts since finishing 2¾L third (33/1) to Bocasien Desbois at Market Rasen in March (2m5f+).
