15:05 Musselburgh Fri 22 March 2019
Has scaled new heights since switched to fences (2-5); carries a 7lb penalty for beating yesterday's Sedgefield flop Tetraites Style by 4½L over an extended 2m here 12-days ago; promises to stay this longer trip on a sound racing surface.
Bombed out over C&D latest, but firmly on an upward trajectory immediately prior to that with previous Musselburgh form figures of 2,2,1,1; very closely matched with re-opposing rival King Golan; one of three runners for Lucinda Russell.
Course bumper winner; somewhat disappointing since finishing 8L second to the now 122-rated Dali Mail in a 2m heavy ground maiden hurdle at Ayr in November; making his rules chasing debut (0-5 in PTP's for Donnchadh Doyle).
Front-runner who was returning from seven-month absence when finishing 19L third of five to Monsieur Co over 2m here in February; today's longer trip is in his favour, albeit remains high in the weights; stablemate of Elmono and The Road Home.
Winner of a 2m hurdle at this track in January 2018 (good to soft); ran his best race since, and over fences when finishing a one-paced second to Old Salt over C&D 22-days ago; others (stablemate Elmono included) appear more likely.
Has turned over a new leaf this season, appearing to be a vastly improved performer; made all and jumped well when twice scoring at Kelso (good) in October; back from a break when beaten a short-head by Elmono over 3m here latest.

Wishfull Dreaming (7/4), Boy's On Tour (9/2), King Golan (5/1), Elmono (5/1), The Road Home (7/1), Sporting Press (11/1)
