17:25 Market Rasen Sun 8 July 2018
Winner at Huntingdon (good) over 2m last October but unraced since disappointing at Ludlow later that month. Worth a check in the market.
Finished a close third at Hexham (2m, good) on his penultimate outing and likely to appreciate this return to 2m having finished well beaten over 2m4f last time out.
Returned to form when finishing a close third under this rider at Newton Abbot (2m1f, good) recently. Races off a 2lb higher mark and is of interest once more.
Placed over an extended 2m4f in a chase at Bangor (good-to-soft) in April. Well beaten on only subsequent completion and wears a hood and cheekpieces for the first time on debut for a new yard.
Selling hurdle winner at Uttoxeter (2m, good) in June last year. Had just two outings since and well held at Stratford (good-to-firm) on return from nearly a year off the track recently.
Returned to winning ways when scoring by 2L on good ground over 2m at Hexham last time out. Has to defy a 7lb rise if he's to follow up here.
Broke his maiden over hurdles at the second time of asking when winning over an extended 1m7f at Southwell (good) last time out. Placed here prior to that and has a promising amateur in the saddle for his handicap debut.
Maiden after 18 starts and failed to trouble the judge in three outings over hurdles. Probably best watched on handicap debut.
