9 yo Gelding

OR: 103

Form & Verdict
Has failed to threaten in fifth on both runs this season but he stayed on well over C&D (good to soft) last month and should be better served by today's testing conditions; edging down the weights and is one to consider.

Form & Verdict
He's just 1lb higher than when winning this last year (good ground) and, following two fair thirds at Doncaster this year (3m/2m4f, good), he may not have been suited by nippy Musselburgh last time; not written off today but there's a suspicion the testing ground is a negative.

0-9 under rules and 4lb out of the handicap here but he's shown promise on both chase starts, finishing second at Ayr (2m4f, good to soft) last month before his jumping let him down over the final two fences at Musselburgh (2m4f, good to soft); effective on heavy ground and he's not discounted.

Form & Verdict
Second of four to a progressive winner here (2m, soft) in February and comfortably beat an in-form course specialist to win a match at Ayr (2m4f, good) recently; a 3lb rise for last time doesn't seem harsh and this lightly raced 7yo could be ahead of the handicapper.
