15:40 Newton Abbot Wed 14 August 2019
Fairly useful over hurdles he probably exceeded his level of form in that sphere when given his chasing debut at Market Rasen over this trip recently. Looked to know his job taking the runner-up slot behind one from a stable in rude health.
On a long losing run although he appeared to get back on track when making his stable debut in June at Fontwell. Still to win over fences though (0-11) despite jumping well; has to enter the equation although the losing run is off putting.
Failed to fire on his chasing debut after a break (well below his hurdles form); made mistakes, finished well behind Asylo. The lowest rated of these he comes into this with work to do at the weights and on form; needs a major step forward.
Hit a purple patch for this yard last summer/autumn winning over timber on four occasions rising quickly in the handicap. Returned for his chasing debut after eight months off recently (better for the run); likely improver.
Last Year's Winner
Asylo (1/1), Notnow Seamus (9/4), De Plotting Shed (5/1), Mellow Ben (6/1)
