Ran badly when seventh of 8 in handicap (22/1) at Salisbury (5f, good to soft). Off 95 days. Significantly up in trip. Rejoined yard after leaving Michael Appleby.
One win from 24 Flat runs. Twelve runs since last win in 2019. Bit below form eighth of 19 in handicap at Doncaster (7f, soft, 16/1) 17 days ago. Must improve.
3-time C&D winner. Fourteen wins from 47 Flat runs. 2 wins from 6 runs this year. Not disgraced considering he was stuck wide when fourth of 9 in claimer (6/1) at Chelmsford City (7f) 26 days ago.
3 wins from 9 runs this year. Latest win at Wolverhampton in October. 4/1, respectable second of 12 in handicap at this C&D (AW) 20 days ago, staying on. More needed from career-high mark.
12/1, creditable third of 12 in handicap at Kempton (6f) 20 days ago, dropped out from outside draw and finishing with running left. He's on a good mark and is high on the shortlist here.
C&D winner. Latest win here in August. 40/1, last of 6 in minor event at this C&D (AW) 3 days ago.
Latest win at Haydock in August. Found run of good form coming to a halt when last of 5 in handicap at Musselburgh (8f, good, 15/2) 58 days ago. Makes polytrack debut.
Behind when unseated rider in novice hurdle (125/1) at Newbury (16.3f, good) on NH debut 19 days ago. Fairly useful on the Flat, below form on last run. Others more persuasive.
Failed to build on previous promise when ninth of 13 in handicap at Chelmsford City (7f, 3/1) 33 days ago. Worth another chance and not taken lightly from this slightly lower mark.
Course winner. Creditable third of 12 in handicap (11/2) at this course (6f, AW) 20 days ago, keeping on when having to wait for gap briefly final 1f. Should be bang there once again.
Lequinto (9/4), Tipperary Jack (4/1), Molivaliente (9/2), Little Brown Trout (6/1), Radetsky (13/2), Markazi (11/1), Nirodha (22/1), Unforgiving Minute (33/1), Mr Tyrrell (40/1), Airshow (66/1)
TIPPERARY JACK did well to get as close as he did when third at Kempton just under 3 weeks ago, finishing with a flourish having had to be dropped out from the outside draw. This step back up in trip holds no fears and he should go very close. His stablemate Molivaliente could provide the main threat if building on the promise of his penultimate start, ahead of Little Brown Trout.
