Dual chase winner in 2014/15 but not seen under Rules since spring 2016. Point efforts earlier this year were hardly inspiring. Likely outsider from out of handicap on yard debut.

He has won two hurdle races and two chases from 2m to 2m 4f on ground varying from good to soft, but last win was over four years ago. Well beaten at 20-1fav when fifth of 8 on his latest outing in a point-to-point race at Garthorpe over 2m 4f in June. Having his first run for a new stable today.

PAGERO took a while to warm to his task once sent handicapping, but he burst into life at Huntingdon last weekend. That came over two and a half miles but such was the ease of the victory, it is difficult to imagine the drop in distance will stop him from following up off the same mark. Carry On has progressed in the novice ranks, but perhaps fellow handicap newcomer George Ridsdale can present the sterner challenge.

Blakeney Point and Borodin are rated in the 90s on the level so are interesting recruits to the winter game. They will need to be polished in the jumping department if they are to get to grips with LOGAN ROCKS, though, because Amy Murphy's gelding created a smart impression when making a successful hurdling debut at Huntingdon. Perfect Predator was beaten a long way at odds-on in that contest, but surely it was too bad to be true.

SKY PIRATE held his own in the Kim Muir last season and after returning with a Wetherby spill, he went some way to putting it behind him when beating all bar Flying Angel at Ascot. The handicapper has probably taken a chance in keeping him on the same rating and he can see off Barton Knoll, who was an encouraging fourth on his Newbury comeback. Storm Control improved from his own return to fill the runner-up berth at Wetherby and could step forward again.

Scarlet Dragon wasn't disgraced in what used to be the Gerry Feilden and he remains on a handy mark in this sphere. Speed Company couldn't get competitive at Ascot, but his previous Chepstow defeat of Quoi De Neuf reads well. Faro De Kerser is interesting on his handicap debut but a chance is taken on BLU CAVALIER, who has been campaigned in Grade 2 company since taking third off this figure in the rearranged Betfair Hurdle back in February.
