Fourth in a valuable Market Rasen handicap on latest start and might have gone close here last September but for a fall late on. However, not proven over this trip and not really progressing over fences, so a little to prove now.
Not seen out for well over a year, but was a useful chaser back in 2018 and the handicapper has given him a helping hand if he's fit after his absence. Drop of rain would help his cause too, and yard still in cracking form.
Not the easiest to win with but stays well, and ground may be ideal. Not a bad effort after a break at Worcester last time and likely to come on a bit for that. Likely to try and make all, and may well succeed.
Continued his upward trajectory with another ready win at Cartmel on latest start, and comes here on the top of his game. 7lb rise and up in trip tonight both ask a new question of him, but if staying, looks the one to beat.
Twice a point-to-point winner this spring, and ran well in defeat at Stratford on their hunter chase evening at the end of May too. Won again over hurdles on latest start and still looks reasonably treated here. Will stay and has to be considered.
