- Baldwins Accountants, Banking & Finance Conditional Jockeys' Veterans' Handicap Chase (Class 3)
- 2m 4f 19y, Heavy (Soft in places)
- 5 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Useful chaser (4-8; 50%); made all and hacked up in a 2m4f novices' handicap chase at Carlisle (heavy) in April 2018; 8lb higher here; raced sparingly over hurdles since (a 2m4f Sedgefield winner).
Yet to win over fences (0-16) but ultra-consistent in this discipline and has shown that he has the winning mentality instilled over hurdles (3-28); keeping on stoutly when third (beaten 2L) to Dontdooddson at Sligo (2m1f) in September; key player.
5-26 over fences, including when scoring for Colin Tizzard from a mark of 121 at Chepstow (2m3½f, soft) last November; pulled up on each of his last two starts (for G Slade-Jones and for Steve Flook).
5-18 over fences; 5lb higher than when winning over C&D (heavy) for Henry Oliver in March (beat the reopposing Charlie Snow Angel by 5L); should be monitored for signs of sustained market support on debut for Tristan Davidson.
Consistent without being a regular winner; better off at the weights with March C&D (heavy) conqueror Casual Cavalier; no chance with the front pair when third on seasonal reappearance at Kelso (2m1f, heavy).

Charlie Snow Angel (15/8), Casual Cavalier (2/1), My Manekineko (9/2), Skipping On (6/1), Flaming Charmer (11/1), No Such Number (33/1)
