  • Distance: 2m 3f 31y
  • Age: 4yo
  • Runners: 5
  • Prize: £21,050
Mr Simon W. Clarke silk
No. 4

Should be sharper for his recent first outing in 5 months at Newbury and the fact he's won this race for the last 2 years (partnered on both occasions by Sean Quinlan) earns him a place on the shortlist.

Landed a second handicap chase success of the season when seeing off 4 rivals at Ludlow (25.5f) 22 days ago, forging 10 lengths clear. 4 lb rise is fair enough and he is effective over this shorter trip. Has cheekpieces on for the first time.

Largely consistent last term and made a sound return to action when third of 10 at Wetherby (19f) 13 days ago. Cheekpieces refitted. Another who can't be discounted.

Stretched his unbeaten chase record to 4 when shading a tight finish in a 2m Ayr handicap on his reappearance 4 weeks ago. 3 lb rise is offset by his jockey's claims. Another bold show likely.

Quickly made up into a fairly useful chaser last winter, winning twice. Disappointed at Kelso on his final start but no surprise were he to resume his progression this season. Has had wind surgery.
