Cormier does not boast the best form around this course so he will have to improve on that trend if he wants to go close here. His last win came in the middle of last year on the flat at Chester where he won over 1m2f carrying a top weight of 10-2.
He has disappointed in Class 2 events since and came third of three on seasonal reappearance at Newcastle where he actually finished behind two rivals he faces again here in Tommy's Oscar and Since Day One.
The 7-year-old will have a tough task on his hands to reverse any form with the two of those as he got beat convincingly last time out.
A case cannot be made for win purposes here.
