Made all when last winning at Fakenham over a year ago but hit and miss since and return to those tactics failed to bring about improvement on latest. Down in grade but bit to prove.
Ran no more than OK on chase debut last month but should at least improve for the experience and returns to a track where he is unbeaten in three runs over hurdles which has to make him of interest.
Hampered at halfway on latest but prior to that had scored at Chepstow and probably remains in form. Yard has had excellent start to the season.
Sole win was gained in three runner race in 2017 and came off a long absence when pulled up at Sedgefield in January on debut for this yard. Wind surgery since and now back over fences.
Had shown very little prior to much improved effort when falling two out at Ffos Las when sure to take a hand in the finish. Has changed yards since and up 3lb but has to be a major player with a clear round.
Without a win since 2016 but some of his efforts of late have been creditable and this is weaker than the company he normally keeps so not without a chance.
Another placed effort at Exeter last week and has been running to form for a good while, but probably needs to eke out a bit more to get his head in front for the first time in 13 starts.
