Corcoran historical data/form

The ultra-consistent Bail Out has got the better of Shennan and Hellorhighwater when a silver medallist the last twice and can confirm form. However, preference is for OVERBOLD, who was only beaten a neck last time and the in-form performer should have plenty more to come.
