Very useful at his peak. Pair of heavy-ground Lingfield wins last month show plenty of ability remains but he was only fourth off this mark back there on Tuesday.

Winner of five hurdle races from 2m to 2m 3f on ground varying from good to soft to heavy. Finished 11l behind Shaw's Cross when fourth of 9 at 13-8fav on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Lingfield over 2m (heavy) earlier this month. Has won twice at Lingfield this season.

At The Races Verdict

Paul Nicholls holds a strong hand with Malaya, who is only 4lb higher than when winning the Imperial Cup over C&D in the spring, and Ashutor, who shaped with real promise on his first outing since wind surgery at Huntingdon. Man Of Plenty took this off this mark 12 months ago but has failed to impress of late, with the stable potentially holding better claims with Sleep Easy, who is making his first appearance for the yard. A tentative nod goes the way of PROTEKTORAT, who was only beaten a head in a track-and-trip maiden hurdle and could be leniently treated ahead of this first appearance in the handicap ranks. Smarty Wild and Song For Someone both arrive on the back of victories and command respect, with the tough Theo's Charm sure to relish conditions and worthy of a place on the shortlist too.

Timeform Verdict

SMARTY WILD may not have stopped improving yet and is taken to defy the handicapper again and make it 5 wins in his last 6 starts. Groveman is an interesting contender at the foot of the weights, while Song For Someone has been hit with an 11 lb rise for Fontwell but could easily have more to offer given his largely progressive profile since joining Tom Symonds.
