Easy winner of a 2m4f point at Great Trethew last February; short in the market (7-4) when third behind a well-touted newcomer on good to soft at Bangor and that form isn't far off the best on offer here; should improve.

Went close in sole Irish maiden point (3m, yielding) last March and runner-up on bumper debut at Chepstow (2m, good to soft) in November; open to improvement for top trainer and he's a strong candidate.

Runner-up on Irish point debut in May 2021 (good to yielding) and was bought for £6,000 a few weeks later; the winner hasn't done much to advertise that form under rules, though, and this stable debut has been a long time coming; had wind op in October.

Verdict

This bumper may go the way of GOONHILLY who is now with the Skeltons after running such a positive first race at Hereford. Inoui Machin was closing fast on Go West at Chepstow but the latter travelled with the greater purpose throughout that race and he’s feared most. Doc McCoy, Townhill, Royal Defender and Beachcomber are others of interest.[Alistair Jones]
