Gained a first win over fences in 15th try at Market Rasen in July before finishing a close third off today's mark next as favourite at Perth. Both of those wins on sounder surfaces than today and heavy would be a real worry.
Formerly with Tony Carroll this dual point-to-point winner has yet to score under Rules. Some headway over C&D latest but stopped quickly after a blunder three out and he arrives with more questions than answers at this stage.
All of his three wins come at Taunton but ran well here on first visit latest when second over C&D on heavy ground similar to what he can expect today. 1lb higher but knocking loudly at the door and leading claims today.
Lone win came over fences but this mare has twice run well over hurdles to start this campaign in soft ground second at Market Rasen and third at Southwell. 5lb lower mark here helps and every chance once again.
Broke his maiden here over 2m4½f in October before running well at Sedgefield next (both on soft). Pulled up latest with heavy going given as the reason so would hope conditions dry out here. Possibilities high if conditions do suit.
A well-known character who has thrown away numerous winning opportunities with his weak and idle finishing efforts. 11lb out of the handicap here and very little chance on what he's shown of late, best left alone.
