He wasn’t at his best at Warwick last time but at least he has been dropped 1lb for it and his earlier efforts this season, notably his Exeter win, gives him decent claims here. He will have his ground and conditions. Unibet's 15 To Go offer will run on this race.
I was very happy with him on his first start for us at Wincanton last month, and the 2lb he was dropped that run was welcomed. We know testing ground suits him, as does a test of stamina for a horse who has finished third in a Welsh National, and I am really looking forward to see how he goes off his light weight. I suspect he will go very well. Unibet's 15 To Go offer will run on this race.
A winning pointer, he shaped nicely enough when third at Chepstow last month and the step up to 2m4f on his hurdling debut should really suit him. He is in good form.
I think he has been improving steadily with his racing and hopefully there is more to come. He has a decent each-way chance.
