- Acorns Children's Hospice Conditional Jockeys' Handicap Chase (Class 4)
- 2m 6f 125y, Good to Soft (Soft in places)
- 7 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Fair fourth over an extended 2m5f at Wetherby (soft) in March but well beaten at Kelso (2m1f, good-to-soft) the following month. Races off a mark 3lb lower than for his most recent victory and has won first start after a break in the past.
Running well prior to falling at the last in a 2m5f handicap chase at Sedgefield (good) early last month. Races off a 1lb lower here and is of interest once more.
Dual hurdles winner has struggled in three starts over fences so far pulling up on his last two chase starts. Well handicapped on old hurdles from and market support would be notable on stable debut following a break.
Recorded a 5L victory in a 3m2f handicap chase at Newton Abbot (good) at the end of July. Disappointed on only subsequent start and interesting to see how he fares dropping in distance.
Successful three times over fences including at Ffos Las (good) over an extended 2m3f in June. Well beaten at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good) last time out however and needs to put that effort behind him if he's to take this event.
Put a below par effort behind him when finishing 11L fifth over 2m3f at Market Rasen (good) recently. Races off a mark 20lb lower than for his most recent handicap triumph.
Returning from over a year off the track when beaten 30L over an extended 3m3f on good ground here in August. Likely to have improved for the run and is worth a check in the market down in trip.
