All three career wins have come on decent ground, so the forecast conditions could see him bouncing back and he's now well handicapped on best form.
No win since December 2016, but most recent run at Fakenham (2m5f, soft) in December was his best for a while. Returns to action for a yard going along nicely, could run well.
A 12-race maiden but placed in two of three runs over fences so far, including last month over this C&D, travelling well before finishing around 8L down in third. Can go close in this.
Mare won at Sedgefield in December over similar trip on soft ground on second chase start. Looked in need of a run at Carlisle in April and run well back at Sedgefield since, both over 2m. Should be in the shake-up back out in trip.
Teenager now and starting to lose his way a bit, not entirely written off and dangerous from this mark if in the mood, but others seem more likely.
Just the one strike in 21 attempts over fences and three spring outings over shorter trips haven't offered a great deal of hope that tally will double.
Fell twice in five starts over fences last year and remains unplaced in 14 career starts over obstacles. Returns for first start since August and is opposed on form.
