16:25 Market Rasen Thu 14 March 2019
Effective from 2m4f-3m. Last two wins have come in 0-100 company and he is prone to the odd error. Can afford no mistakes at this level off this mark.
Winning point-to-pointer on soft ground so possible he might do better tackling this trip for the first time under rules on handicap debut. Hard to argue he is attractively weighted.
Did not travel well early but eventually won hard held on Kempton return. Failed to get into it in better company at Newbury since but this more his standard.
Return from a 13 month absence did not indicate his problems are behind him. Having been rated 127 at his peak he is still worth a check in the market ahead of an ordinary race such as this.
There was some promise in his hurdling debut but that promise hasn't been prevalent in his subsequent three efforts. Off since November and something to prove at present.
May have needed latest and plenty of encouragement to be taken from his two previous starts. One to note for local yard if there are positive signals in the market.
Escapes a penalty for winning a conditional riders event at Carlisle (2m3f) and revised mark shows he is 8lb "well in" here. Suited by the stiffer test that day and the way he came up the hill suggests he should get this longer trip.
Landed a couple for Dan Skelton last summer and has struggled off his revised marks since. Off since December and others look better handicapped.
