- IP Office Handicap Chase (Class 4)
- 2m 3f 48y,
- 6 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Making his handicap and chase debut when finishing 28L fourth of five on seasonal reappearance at Carlisle (2m5f, heavy) a month ago. Likely to have improved for the experience and is worth a check in the market in this race.
Placed on all three starts this campaign including when a good second over an extended 2m3f at Sedgefield (soft) last time out. Races off a 1lb higher mark here and is one for the shortlist in this contest.
Fair 17L eighth in a handicap chase over an extended 2m when making his seasonal debut at Newbury (soft) at the end of last month. Worth a check in the market on this occasion.
Return to hurdles appeared to suit when finishing runner-up over 2m5f at Ludlow (soft) on his penultimate start. Unseated rider back over fences at Uttoxeter (3m, heavy) last time out and he is probably best watched at present.
Victorious over C&D on good-to-soft ground in twice last campaign and finished a decent 12L second upped to an extended 3m1f at Ffos Las (heavy) on last months seasonal debut. Leading contender off a mark 6lb higher than for his most recent victory.
Built on a promising return to action when winning by 3¾L in a 3m1f handicap chase at Wincanton (good) in November. Given a break since then and is an interesting contender despite a 5lb rise in the weights.
