Form & Verdict
Things didn't go to plan at Market Rasen (2m4f, good to soft) on Boxing Day on second start for yard, but he got there in the nick of time; looked a promising type for this level when proving suited by the new 3m2f trip at Hereford (good) since and good chance he can cope with a 6lb rise.

T: Dan Skelton

A major rising force with his handicap wins at Market Rasen (2m4f), Hereford (3m2f, good) and Lingfield (2m7f, soft) on last three outings; the latest was nine days ago and in fine style at 8-13, so it's easy to think he is capable of dealing with a good deal more than this 7lb penalty; due to go up another 6lb in future engagements; may well complete the four-timer.

Minor hurdle form and off since last April but he's had wind surgery in the meantime and, being out of a smart staying hurdler, he might well improve back at 2m7f now handicapping off a modest mark.
