Last year’s winner and the stable star for Tom Symonds, was an impressive winner of the race 12 months ago, beating Silver Streak by just a nose, but he jumped and travelled very nicely that day and was a real eye catcher.
The yard has tried stepping him up in trip with his last two runs which looked like it would suit this horse, but it doesn’t look to have worked out for them (Finished pulled up and a well beaten second since going up to 2m4f which is pretty decent form in itself but was well beaten) so the drop back to, two miles today will suit at the stiffer track of Cheltenham.
He is a previous winner of on soft and arguably this looks to be his conditions, with a run already in the bag this season he will be fit and ready to go in a race he has won before.
Winner of this race last year, has already had a run this season so fitness is on his side. Could be the one to take this race again.
