- Core Spreads Novices' Handicap Chase (Class 4)
- 3m 1f 152y,
- 5 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Multiple Point-to-point winner earlier in his career and now chasing under rules for the first time. Has shown little hurdling but was well backed for a stronger contest on latest and interesting if the money comes again in a weaker contest.
Runner up last three starts on various ground at around this trip. This is a similar grade and no reason why he shouldn't feature again.
Heavily backed when second at Stratford a week ago off this mark and first time visor now replace cheek pieces but now trying 6f further so stamina to prove.
Bumper winner in 2016 but clearly been difficult to keep sound and although he has shown nothing over hurdles, he now goes chasing in a handicap for the first time off the back of a wind operation and sports cheek pieces for the first time.
Long standing maiden who has been below par two runs this season and hard to make a case for from 7lb out of the weights.
