Hurdle/chase winner in Ireland; failed to beat a rival when last seen (sold for £12,000 since) but market support should be noted on debut for new stable; returns to chasing for first time in 12 months.

Returned from break with wide-margin win last spring but generally very disappointing since; last month's Taunton fourth (3m2f, good) was a step back in the right direction but he was well held in the end; others have more appealing profiles.

Emphatic winner off a 3m2f handicap at Newton Abbot (good) in May but he's not come close to that form since and has been tailed off and pulled up at Exeter (3m) in last two starts; now 4lb lower than for last win but he has a lot to prove.

Belatedly opened his account when justifying favouritism in a handicap chase at Chepstow (2m7f, good) on reappearance but he then finished tailed off at Exeter (good to soft); on a good mark but looks hard to trust.

Showed promise in sole bumper but was beaten 24l or more in her three hurdle runs and she kicked off her chase career with a tailed-off effort in Uttoxeter handicap (2m4f, heavy) on New Year's Eve; that was after a lengthy absence but she was laboured at a big price and others are preferred.

High Counsel

J: Alexander Thorne

T: Gary Hanmer

Triple C&D winner who ran respectably when third at Uttoxeter (3m, good) in October but this is tougher from out of the weights after another break and his last three wins have come on good ground; others preferred.

16/1

Verdict

Recent form is thin on the ground and JAYTEE (nap), still unexposed as a chaser and having run well over hurdles on his return, makes most appeal. Robyndzone is feared most, ahead of Seven No Trumps.[Jonathan Neesom]
