Decent effort in finishing 3L second in a handicap chase over an extended 2m6f at Stratford (good) in August. Struggled back over hurdles last time out however and return to fences is a positive.

Betting

Forecast

Byron Flyer (6/4), Dans Le Vent (15/8), Eragon De Chanay (9/2), Pink Eyed Pedro (6/1), New Agenda (20/1)

Verdict

BYRON FLYER made a winning chase debut last time out and he can maintain his unbeaten record over fences by stepping up in trip to take this small fields novices' handicap event. The selection can get the better of his rivals here with Pink Eyed Pedro capable of finishing runner-up on his return to chasing while Dans Le Vent can claim third on chase debut.
