Won three times at this distance in March but since then has been a long way behind the winner in his last two starts. Has got the ability if his recent runs are behind him.
Impressive winner at Taunton last time out over 3m in what was his first win for his new trainer. Back down in trip where he still has something to prove.
Has progressed with each run over hurdle, with his best outing coming last time out when second at Plumpton behind an odds-on favourite. Has to be a leading player on his handicap debut.
Ran well when third on his return to action at Market Rasen in March following a lengthy lay-off. Since then though, has been pulled-up on his two starts. Needs to improve.
Back down to class 4 after runs in two valuable handicaps earlier this year. Won over this distance at Warwick back in December. Prominent player at this level.
Was third at Market Rasen (2m2f) on his handicap debut last time out. Still looking for his first win. Back down in trip so one to watch.
Won a big-field handicap at Newton Abbot (2m1f) last May but since then has been disappointing. First run for new stable here and needs to improve.
