16:20 Market Rasen Sun 8 July 2018
Placed over 2m5f at Newton Abbot (good) in May. Fair fifth subsequently prior to a 49L defeat at Stratford a month ago. Worth a check in the market.
Nine time chase winner including three times under this rider. Hunter chase winner over 3m at Perth (good) in May but disappointed in a handicap hunter chase last time. Usually races from the front.
Winner on chase debut over an extended 2m3f at Stratford (good) in May. Jumped poorly and hung badly when pulling up over the same C&D subsequently. Interesting if putting that latest effort behind him.
Listed handicap hurdle winner over an extended 2m4f at Cheltenham (good) in April. Not beaten far despite finishing sixth of nine subsequently and one to note having won over fences in the past.
Finished runner-up on three of his four starts since returning from a break. Beaten 1L on chase debut at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good) last time out and likely to run well once more.
Point-to-point winner over 3m at Fakenham (good) in April. Ran well to finish runner-up over an extended 2m6f in a hunter chase at Stratford (good) subsequently and interesting back in a handicap.
Soft ground winner over an extended 2m3f at Sedgefield in January. Well held twice since however and others hold stronger claims.
