Last spotted winning over hurdles two years ago at Bangor. Prior Flat form would put him in the mix but long absence is an obvious concern unless market speaks in favour.
Improved turf form when landing 13-runner handicap at Goodwood (2m, good to firm, 10-1) recently, seeming scoring with something in hand. Also won over timber this spring and respected in current mood despite 4lb rise.
Dual winner over 2m last year including in first time cheekpieces (absent here) on the AW at this track in September. Comes here off a good second at Salisbury, longer trip to suit and jockey booking a plus.
1lb higher than when winning over this trip on Kempton's AW in September 2017. Has passed up good chances to win over hurdles at Worcester recently. Visor back on, cannot be ruled out.
Won over this trip on AW at Kempton in February (5lb higher mark here); well held since including when seventh of 13 in Goodwood (2m, good to firm) race won by Age Of Wisdom latest. Hard to see turnaround.
Filly gained wins at Carlisle (1m6f) and Pontefract (2m1f) in September last year, both on testing ground. Went close on quick ground at Yorkshire track on reappearance this term. Can go close if getting handy time of it.
So Near So Farhh (2/1), Age Of Wisdom (11/4), General Zoff (7/2), Atomic Jack (9/2), Mere Anarchy (6/1), Conkering Hero (16/1), Ardamir (20/1), River Dart (25/1), Be My Sea (33/1), Demophon (33/1)
