14:15 Lingfield Tue 3 December 2019
Runner-up on four occasions since winning at Uttoxeter (2m, good) in May 2018; ran well without seeing out the trip on seasonal reappearance at Sandown (2m4f, heavy).
Fortunate when making a winning debut for this trainer here (2m3½f, heavy) last month but doubled-up over this trip a week later (under his stand-in rider Racheal Kneller) beating Flaminger by 10L; 4lb higher seeking a hat-trick.
Generally speaking wasn't at his best for Sophie Leech earlier in the year and has moved onto David Pipe as a result; operates fine under these conditions; is probably worth a market check in a newly fitted tongue-tie.
11lb higher than when winning over an extended 2m3f on this card 12 months ago (heavy) - beat Max Do Brazil by 15L; well beaten third on seasonal reappearance a fortnight ago.
Beat Oden by 7L when winning this race from a 2lb lower mark in 2018; followed up next time at Ffos Las (2m, heavy) but has lost his way in 2019; wears cheekpieces on return from wind surgery.
11lb higher than when scoring by 19L at Ffos Las (2m, good to soft) in February; finished a mildly respectable sixth (beaten 11½L) to Mr Scrumpy on seasonal reappearance at Wetherby (2m3½f, soft) last month; drops back in trip.
Fontwell regular, winning twice over 2m3f there (soft) last season; now sits 9lb above his last winning mark; no chance with the winner when beaten 14L (third) by Song For Someone latest.
Won in the mud at Sandown (2m, heavy) last December and broadly consistent thereafter - rider failed to weigh-in when finishing third over C&D in January; 2lb lower than for his recent comeback run.
Won twice for Chris Gordon at Fontwell (hurdles and fences) in January; weakened from two out when finishing in excess of 33L sixth of ten to Kenny George on seasonal reappearance (Fontwell, 2m3f).
