Off the mark over fences at Stratford (19.5f) in July of last year. Below that level when fourth over same C&D later that month and not seen since, but warrants respect on return.
Encouraging third on chase debut/return at Stratford (17f) in August. Not in same form at Southwell since but must enter calculations here.
Won 2m novice handicap chase at Southwell and Uttoxeter handicap hurdle on first 2 starts for this yard last autumn. Disappointed later in the season but always possible a break will have revived.
Respectable effort when third of 8 in handicap chase at Warwick (20f, good) last month and now 3 lb lower, so merits consideration.
Offered little since taking a handicap chase at Exeter in April 2018 and hopes may rest on first-time blinkers back from 7 months off.
Belatedly off the mark when landing 9-runner handicap chase over C&D (soft) in March. 4 lb higher now but can't be ruled out on return.
Very lightly-raced under Rules in recent years and made little impact on return from 7 months off at Fontwell in August. 1 lb out of the handicap, first-time blinkers applied.
Rule 4 applies to all bets - deduction 10p in the pound
Kapsize (11/4), Battleofthesomme (3/1), Simon The Great (7/2), Hab Sab (13/2), Dalkadam (13/2), Magic River (8/1), Sandford Castle (12/1), Gustav (22/1), Pierlow (40/1)
All have questions to answer here, but preference is for SIMON THE GREAT, who has had a break since his disappointing Southwell effort and remains low-mileage in this sphere. Kapsize and Magic River should also make their presence felt.
