Course Winner - Won before at this course
Grade One winning novice here who returned to handicap company with two very solid efforts in defeat, second in a Listed contest at Ayr before finishing third at the Punchestown Festival. This is easier, although top weight demands more.
Back to form in 2m4f handicaps and this longer distance is well worth a try.

Just one from nine over fences, pulled up in a Listed contest at Wincanton from this mark last time. That can be forgiven (broke blood vessels), although this looks a tougher contest than when placing at Ludlow previously.
Often thereabouts in his nine chase starts; wouldn't appreciate too many showers.

Now eight pounds lower than when scoring in December 2017, running off the same mark as when placing in a Grade Three over course and distance at the National meeting. Under identical conditions with cheekpieces added, he's shortlisted.
Third of 18 in ultra-competitive handicap over C&D on Grand National day.

Eight time winner over fences, running out a ready winner at a Class Three at Market Rasen a week ago. Two pounds well in under a penalty, he's very well treated, although this looks considerably tougher.
Turned out under a penalty after making all the running at Market Rasen last week.

Showed little in four starts in the winter before returning from a short break with a comfortable success over three-miles-four. Evidently improved by the extra mileage there; dropped back in distance and raised five pounds he is hard to fancy.
Strong stayer who kept on best to collect with something in hand over 3m4f at Haydock.

Lightly raced, poor in his first two over fences before improving when stepped down in trip to complete a double over two-miles-five. Wasn't disgraced in a Grade Two last time running from out of the weights; something to prove stepped up in trip.
Could on a harsh enough mark now and has stamina to prove over this far.

Verdict

The 11yo SIZING GRANITE looks back on good terms with himself and he's well worth another try over this longer distance.
