All handicaps at longer trips and raced over 1m6f and 2m for this yard, a cosy course win in December coming over the latter distance; hard to know if he still has what it takes over middle distances; sets a puzzle.

J: Cieren Fallon

T: B F Brookhouse

Hit a personal best with his comfortable win at Southwell (2m, Tapeta) in December and he had an excuse when dropped back to 1m3f there the following month; can be a bit hit-and-miss but he still looks feasibly treated and has possibilities back up in trip.

Has a decent strike-rate and pulled clear inside the final 1f when scoring at Southwell (2m; 9-1) three weeks ago; a 4lb rise does not look insurmountable and he ought to make his presence felt again.

Losing run is mounting up and he never figured the last twice (1m4f/1m3f); however, may benefit from this step back up in trip; 0-4 on AW but is attractively weighted off current mark.

Latest Flat win nearly three years ago; taken time to get his eye in on the AW this winter but on a useful mark now and he did well to finish as close as he did at Wolverhampton (about 1m) before Christmas; the return to further can suit; of interest despite lack of course experience.

Unexposed 4yo who was in good form over 9.5f at Wolverhampton last month, winning then going down only narrowly on follow-up bid 15 days later; pulled just under 3l clear of the third latterly so a 3lb nudge looks fair; should go well if stamina holds up in trip.
