Fairly useful winning hurdler and stepped up on previous chase form when second at Carlisle in November. However, he has failed to build on that since and others make more appeal.

7/2
Opened chase account when proving a neck too strong for King of Fashion (1 lb pull) at Ayr in March. Still bang there when unseating 2 out over this C&D next time, but more needed off revised mark.

7/4
Off the mark in this sphere at Ayr in March and bettered that form when second upped to 3m at Perth a fortnight ago. Another bold show is on the cards.

6/1
Irish point winner and dual-hurdles winner for Oliver Sherwood. Just about best effort for current yard when second of 5 over C&D on latest start in November, but looks vulnerable all the same.

Fair sort over hurdles for Gordon Elliott in Ireland and best effort yet over fences on third start for this yard when fourth of 12 at Musselburgh (23.8f, soft) last time. More needed here.

Forecasts

Do Not Disturb (7/4), Gipsy Lee Rose (3/1), Baron De Midleton (16/5), Slainte Mhor (7/2), Millarville (6/1), Gun Merchant (7/1), King Of Fashion (8/1)

Verdict

A deserved first taste of success over fences beckons for the veteran KING OF FASHION, who has found just one too good on his last 3 starts and remains on a feasible mark. Gipsy Lee Rose has also been knocking on the door and should be in the mix once more, but Do Not Disturb is feared most on the back of a solid effort at Perth 2 weeks ago.

  1. KING OF FASHION (IRE)
  2. DO NOT DISTURB (IRE)
  3. GIPSY LEE ROSE (FR)
