Jumped well on only chase run when scoring under this jockey at Towcester last April but stamina will be tested as he has yet to race beyond 3m1f and may lack experience for a test like this.
Prolific in point-to-points last season and jumped really well on debut under rules at Newton Abbot (3m2f). Bumped into a progressive type at Market Rasen since and although taking a big step up in trip, he could improve for it.
Takes plenty of driving and didn't seem to stay when tried over 3m4f at Plumpton last January. Still 2lb above sole win over fences.
A pair of hurdles wins at 3m in the mud last winter and has shown promise in both runs over fences including at 3m2f. Worth a go at this longer trip and more to come in this sphere.
Won at just short of this trip at Taunton in March but not for the first time looked a hard ride at Fontwell last time and others make more appeal.
Without a win since Midlands National at Uttoxeter in 2016 but after a spell in the doldrums showed a return to form at Hereford last week and due to go 5lb from tomorrow. Stamina guaranteed and loves the mud.
Proved his stamina when second over 4m at Hexham last month and that followed on from a creditable comeback run over hurdles. Claims if this run doesn't come too soon.
A hard ride but won this last year and back on the same mark. This course seems to bring out the best in him and likely this has been the target for some time.
