Form & Verdict
Not an instant success over fences but second at Exeter in April and pulled last month's Worcester race out of the fire with a strong finish; usual hood removed for that and missing again; 4lb rise might not stop him.

Found out by his career-high mark at Warwick (2m4f, good) but that was another very sound run in what's been a good season already; accurate jumper who has plenty going for him.

Enjoying an excellent season and he made it 4-5 for the term with a cosy success in four-runner handicap chase at Newton Abbot (2m5f) 24 days ago; up 4lb but this sound jumper rates a player once more.

Form & Verdict
Back from six months off with a fine second at Stratford and can race off the same mark; improved last year and this front-runner may prove difficult to catch if dropping back in trip isn't a drawback.

Bled from the nose when pulling up at Worcester in July and she ran as if something was amiss, jumping badly to her right, at Fontwell on latest outing; competitive mark judged on plenty of other form but a note of caution has been sounded.
