Winner over an extended 2m7f at Huntingdon (good) back in May. Decent fourth at Worcester (2m7f, good) subsequently and is one to note following a break.
Decent third over 2m7f at Worcester (good) in June. Had wind surgery subsequently and finished a well beaten fifth at Bangor (3m, good) subsequently.
Beaten 16L when finishing runner-up over 3m at Fakenham (good-to-soft) in April. Well beaten twice since and others hold stronger claims.
Winner of two good ground 2m5f handicap chases at Newton Abbot last month. Came home 2L clear in a six runner contest last time out and he is one to note despite a 10lb rise in the weights.
Not beaten far when finishing fifth in a handicap hurdle at Warwick (3m2f, good-to-soft) at the end of May. Fair fourth over fences the following month and interesting to see how he fares switched to handicaps.
Placed on all three starts since winning at Worcester (2m7f, good) in June. Beaten 24L at Bangor (3m, good) last time out and trip and forecast underfoot conditions should both suit.
Returned to form with a decent fourth in a 3m handicap chase at Hexham (good) in May. Absent since and worth a check in the market on his return to action.
Put a disappointing effort behind him when finishing runner-up over on good ground over this C&D last time out. Likely to run well once more.
