Class 5 | 1m 4f 10y | Good (Good to Firm in places) | 7 Runners | Turf
Off time: 15:50 | Winning time: 2m 36.53s
Off a year before a highly-encouraging second of 12 to Olympic Conqueror at Kempton in June, and has since regained the winning thread over hurdles. Looks well treated, and will be hard to beat.
On a barren losing streak and quite hard to catch right, but ran one of his better races when third to Fishable over shorter here last time. Place claims with a repeat, and first two from that race run in the 3:20.
Won on her final 2019 start at Catterick in September. Has struggled off higher marks this term, and while he's now just 2lb above her winning mark, others have more pressing claims.
Has rather lost his way, but is very well treated on his old form having returned to his former handler. Better than the result having attracted support at Beverley last time, and the market will be informative once more.
Soft-ground Doncaster winner in August last year off 3lb higher. Handles faster ground, but hasn't looked like a winner in waiting in four runs this season, and others again look to have his measure.
His second to Songkran at Yarmouth last month has been well advertised by the winner, but he's not built on that form in a couple of subsequent runs, albeit far from disgraced there last time.
Ran out an easy winner at Bath on his penultimate start, but took a fair hike in the weights for that, and never looked like following up when sixth of 14 to Songkran there last time, albeit running to a similar level. More needed now.
