Returning from a break when winning over 1m2f at Newbury (good-to-firm) last time out. Raised 5lb for that success and of interest once more.

Winner at Yarmouth (1m, good-to-firm) on his penultimate outing and finished a fair fifth over the same distance last time. Interesting to see how he fares stepping up in trip.

Betting

Forecast

Jazeel (11/4), Aardwolf (10/3), Flight Of Fantasy (7/2), Hombre Casado (4/1), Dorella (6/1), You're Hired (10/1), Dream Machine (10/1)

Verdict

AARDWOLF has been in good form over jumps since his most recent Flat outing and he can make his first start in this sphere since joining this yard a winning one by taking what looks a competitive handicap. Forecast underfoot conditions should suit the selection and he can take this with Hombre Casado, stepping up in distance cable of claiming the runner-up spot ahead of Flight Of Fantasy who is seeking back-to-back wins.
