15:40 Plumpton Wed 13 February 2019
C&D winner on his latest visit to Plumpton but struggled under a 7lb heavier burden last time out. Dropped 1lb here and likely to appreciate the return to this trip; must enter calculations despite being set to carry top weight.
Things din't pan out for the gelding during his time with Dan Skelton and the gelding has also taken time to warm to the task for his new yard. best watched until posting signs of a revival.
Won here (extended 2m3f, soft) in December and not disgraced under an 11lb higher mark latest. Personal best still required but is in good heart and is open to improvement now he's dropped in trip once more. One to monitor in the betting.
Almost three years since he registered his solitary previous win and has been off the track since November; had wind surgery in the intervening period. Likely it's safest to just take note of hos he fares on this occasions.
Just two starts over fences but is another who was brushed aside by Shintori here just before Christmas. Plenty to find on a literal reading of the form.
Best form has been posted over longer trips and the gelding, who is still a maiden after 30 previous attempts, has a stiff test ahead.
Low-grade handicapper who is sporting cheekpieces for the first time in a bid to stop the rot of 26-race losing streak. Out of the weights and not hard to overlook here.
