15:40 Market Rasen Wed 20 March 2019
His last win came over hurdles from a 12lb higher mark at Huntingdon (2m, good to soft) in November 2017; outclassed on his sole start over fences in November 2018, he returns to a track which clearly suits; others preferred.
Rolled back the years when posting a solid front-running shift to beat Rainy Day Dylan by 7L over C&D (good to soft) one month ago; 5lb higher and faces competition for the lead; should still take some stopping if in the same fettle.
Game winner on his return to action at Bangor (2m4f+, good to soft) in November; has had some limited excuses since (didn't appear to stay 3m); faces competition for the lead from the veteran Brave Spartacus and the maiden Picknick Park.
Just 2lb higher than when winning at Leicester (2m4f, soft) in January 2018; hasn't quite reached peak form so far this season, finishing in the ruck at Uttoxeter in November; not totally discounted if revitalised from a 115-day break.
Veteran who is slowly inching his way back down the weights to a more competitive looking handicap mark; stronger over the minimum trip (up to 2m1f) and would almost certainly appreciate any further rain - not in the forecast.
15-race maiden with stacks of Market Rasen experience (has run at this track on eleven previous occasions); went down fighting after tussling for the lead throughout on just his second start over fences here (2m1f+) last month.
