15:15 Market Rasen Thu 17 January 2019
Losing run building up and not the easiest to catch right but better when second of four at Fakenham recently and claims if repeating that.
Beaten when taking a crashing fall at the last at Newcastle on latest but had run well for a long way and hopefully confidence won't be dented by that.
Won over 2m3f here in September and has shown that he stays this trip. Wind surgery since last seen and has plenty of form on this sort of ground to be a major player in this.
Wide margin Carlisle win in November and although 17lb higher now he hasn't been disgraced in two subsequent runs and latest Haydock third has been franked by the winner.
Returning from a lengthy absence when third here last month and should strip fitter today. In the frame all three starts at this venue and entitled to consideration.
Best effort over fences when runner up at Uttoxeter last time but probably needs a bit more improvement for win purposes and maybe a slightly longer trip.
Reverts to fences on third run for current yard. Has shown little over hurdles of late and easy to look elsewhere.
