17:45 Market Rasen Sun 19 May 2019
Unexposed in handicaps and is a potential improver over this trip. Worth a betting check from 2lb lower than last time out.
Not shown much to date and needs to step things up considerably now he contests handicaps.
Course winner over an extended 2m4f earlier this month but has also coped with this sort if trip before now. Worth considering even though a 7lb higher mark makes for a tougher assignment.
Plenty of course experience but has been well held in three starts this year and now has something to prove; been dropped 4lb since his last run so still worth a betting check.
Made good progress last season and was a worthy favourite when he won at Taunton last time out. 4lb higher and steps out of mares only company here but still has more to offer and, with a 7lb claimer in the plate, still appeals at the weights.
Has some solid form to his name and knows how to win when things go his way; latest start was encouraging but he will need a down pouring of rain if he's going to be seen at his best these days.
Dropped to handy mark but is hard to win with and needs to conclusively prove that he's suited by this sort of trip.
Last win came over this sort of trip last summer but he hasn't been firing on all cylinders since and he needs to prove he's not just on the downgrade these days.
0-12 over hurdles and hard to fancy on the form of two poor efforts last month. Career lowest mark not enough to tempt an interest.
