  • Age: 4yo
  • Runners: 5
  • Prize: £17,550

Better known as a thorough stayer over fences (won Veterans' Series Final at Sandown last season). Lower in weights in this sphere, but seemed to find test inadequate when fourth over extended 23f here on return 19 days ago. Dropped further in trip now.

Course novice winner who arrives here having posted his best effort yet when headed on the line on return at Fontwell (19.2f) 3 weeks ago. Only 3 lb higher now and yard beginning to hit form, so he's another on the shortlist.

Mr Derrick Mossop silk
No. 5

Ex-Irish bumper scorer who, on the back of a wind op, made a winning yard/hurdles debut at Leicester (20.5f) back in February. Pulled up in Haydock Grade 2 later that month but that may have come soon enough. Type to get back on track now handicapping.

eremy gelding. Half-brother to fairly useful chaser Pres. Looked a good prospect when readily off the mark on debut in a Worcester novice (23f) back in spring 2021. Absent subsequently but open to improvement nevertheless now handicapping.

The Real Partnership silk
No. 1

Geordieland gelding who handled heavy ground notably well when scoring on debut in an Exeter novice (18.5f) in February. Every chance when hanging badly left final 100 yds back there a month later but very much of interest in any case now handicapping on return.
