- CMO Trade Handicap Chase (Class 2)
- 2m 4f 216y,
- 4 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Set some stiff tasks last season in staying handicap chases (Classic Chase, Ultima Chase, Scottish National). However, he comes into this with the form he showed when runner-up at Uttoxeter (3m; good) last summer. 3lb below that mark now.
Has done well in small-field affairs since the turn of the year. Slammed the opposition over C&D (had the smart Tea For Two back in second then) but there is a question mark hanging over him regarding the forecast heavy ground.
Course winner on heavy ground in October 2017. Has been in good form lately and recovered from a heavy fall over C&D two starts ago with a confidence boosting third at Uttoxeter (2m4f; good to soft) recently.
Hasn't been able to cope with the 10lb rise he was burdened with when beating the talented Dolos over C&D in October. 4lb below that mark now though and that C&D win was achieved on the forecast heavy ground. Foolish to dismiss.
