Alder Demain & Akers Pms Oxford Edward Courage Cup Handicap Chase (2) Class 2

  • Distance: 2m 54y
  • Age: 5yo
  • Runners: 4
  • Prize: £30,000

Useful form for Paul Nicholls last term, but he broke a blood vessel on his debut for current yard and has been a below-par third both runs since over C&D and at Ascot. Has plenty to prove at present.

Arrives on the back of three solid efforts this term, third of 4 to Shishkin in Desert Orchid Chase at Kempton last time. Landed this contest 12 months ago, so he's firmly in the mix once more.

Has taken really well to fences and followed up his C&D win with ready victory in 2m Ascot handicap 29 days ago. Up another 9 lb but he's very much on the up and remains weighted to go in again.
