More Than A Flake Handicap Chase (4) Class 4

  • Distance: 2m 78y
  • Age: 4yo
  • Runners: 5
  • Prize: £14,400

Off 18 months prior to his Kelso run 5 weeks ago so it was understandable that he faded from the second last. May come on for the outing.

Took well to fences last season, winning 2m handicaps at Haydock and Newcastle. Returns to action off a mark only 2 lb higher than the one he defied at Newcastle. Player if ready to roll.

Fairly useful hurdler/chaser for Henry de Bromhead. Operating below that level since coming to Britain but this is a lot more realistic than the Grade 2 novice chase he contested last time. Has first-time cheekpieces added to his regular tongue tie.

Made a promising start in this sphere when impressively landing Kempton handicap in October but he does need to shrug off a disappointing run at Hereford since.

Won 2m Southwell maiden hurdle in April. Returned from 6 months off to finish a creditable third in a Fakenham handicap hurdle and could be sharper for the run. Dual point winner so likely to take to fences. Much respected
