Confirmed previous promise to belatedly get off the mark in handicap company at Perth (20.1f) in September. Poor efforts in more competitive events at Punchestown and Down Royal since, though.

Fairly useful hurdler who came close to opening his account over fences at Kelso in October. Not seen to best effect when down the field at Down Royal subsequently and now reverts to the smaller obstacles.

Showed fair form on both starts in France for D. Sourdeau De Beauregard, but shaped as if needing the run after 13 months off when eighth of 15 in maiden at Chepstow (2m) 25 days ago. Makes handicap debut.

All the better for his reappearance when resuming winning ways here in October. Followed up with plenty in hand from a mark 5 lb higher later in the month and looks up to completing the hat-trick.

Proved a disappointment sent chasing at Hexham 23 days ago but won 3 times at this venue last season, so can't be taken lightly back over hurdles.

7/2
Consistency not his strong suit but is down to a career-low mark and showed he retains some ability when runner-up to Wor Verge here (17.2f, heavy) 4 weeks ago. Ought to be thereabouts if turning up in similar form.

Forecasts

Wor Verge (5/4), Applaus (7/2), Malpas (6/1), Curious Times (13/2), Ice Coast (15/2), Gladiatorial (11/1)

Verdict

WOR VERGE is in the form of his life at present and looks up to completing the hat-trick. Malpas made an underwhelming start to his chasing career at Hexham 23 days ago but warrants respect back over hurdles, especially as all his 3 wins last season came at this venue.
