Scored at both Haydock (2m3f, soft) and Chepstow (good to soft) before being found out in a class 2 at Ascot last time. This is nowhere near as competitive an event, he acts on heavy ground and a much better effort is anticipated.
Third here in a bumper (soft) last April. Not disgraced on last month's hurdles debut, but will need plenty of improvement for it if he is to genuinely compete against the leading protagonists here.
100-1 and tailed off in a recent Catterick bumper. Can only watch on hurdles debut.
Won an Irish maiden point in October, costing £26,000 shortly after. 25-1 and well held on debut in a Sedgefield novice event (2m4f, good to soft) in January. Much more needed.
Last Year's Winner
Cloudy Glen (1/8), Hill Sixteen (5/4), Johnbb (5/2), Cosheston (8/1), Mill Race King (18/1), Donald Dux (200/1)
