T: Ben Haslam

Very useful handicapper in his prime; nearly 16l behind eased-down winner Gaboriot when fifth at Catterick (3m1f, soft) in March but that run came after a mammoth absence, and he kept on well to win run-of-the-mill contest at Hexham (3m, heavy) last month; today's forecast faster ground will also suit, and he won on his only previous visit to Cartmel; shortlisted.

Dual hunter chase winner on good ground in spring 2022 (2m4f/3m) but missed 2023 and has struggled twice on slow ground this year; contests this handicap hunter chase from a tempting mark and with the drier conditions in his favour but still needs a good boost from the first-time cheekpieces.

Five-time course winner in 2021/2022, including three good-quality handicaps over today's trip, but has badly lost his way over the last couple of years; getting back on decent ground will aid his cause but hopes of a revival are beginning to fade.
