Landed a bit of a gamble at Market Rasen (2m4½f, heavy) last month off a mark of 109 over timber, clinging on gamely. Perhaps didn't relish longer trip under 5lb rise next time, now switches to chasing.

Unable to open account in five chase starts last year after joining the Olly Murphy team, though did go close on couple of occasions. Back from a break and handicapper isn't relenting yet.

Couple of good-ground wins in novice hurdles last summer, form tailed off towards the end of the year, returns from a layoff for chase bow and respected for the champion trainer.

Betting

Forecast

Take To Heart (1/1), Royal Plaza (2/1), Reckless Behavior (3/1)

Verdict

Ruling any of the trio would be folly here, Take To Heart has the size and scope to develop into a useful chaser but was a bit of sorts over hurdles when last spotted. He is nonetheless respected for the champion trainer. RECKLESS BEHAVIOUR was backed for a win at Market Rasen two starts back and perhaps found his next running come up quickly enough. He's give the nod while the exposed Royal Plaza should continue to run with credit.
  1. Reckless Behavior
  2. Take To Heart
