Nothing if not consistent and continued in good form with a short head second over this trip at Kempton last time. May well try and take these from start to finish and has a puncher's chance of doing so. Every chance if unfazed by quick turnaround.
Has a length to find with Uncle Jerry on Kempton form but a bit worrying he couldn't finish the job off when holding every chance there. Does know how to win, though, so can't be discounted, but others preferred.
Has held his form quite well this winter, tried his luck in France (ran well) and almost came good over C&D last time out, just collared in the last couple of strides. will appreciate a good pace up front (can pull) and has chances.
Promise of his early runs sadly evaporated towards the end of the autumn and he was last seen finishing well beaten on the turf at Doncaster, although soft ground there a possible excuse. Early days, but needs to turn it around now.
Winner over this trip at Chelmsford in November and possibly unlucky not to get a bit closer here last time out (finished behind Champion Brogie) as he was hampered at a key stage. Another with chances in an open little contest.
Last Year's Winner
Uncle Jerry (2/1), Beleaguerment (5/2), Champion Brogie (11/4), London Rock (5/1), Artair (12/1)
