Harry Fry’s charge looked a tidy sort in the early stages of his career but it hasn’t been so plain-sailing since for the son of Asian Heights.

Life over fences started creditably before an underwhelming showing at Ffos Las but history suggests that the return to an intermediate trip here should be in his favour and he’s had a wind surgery since last being seen.

Can Harry Fry’s gelding Mr One More win for the first time since November 2017?

The 3lb claim off his back is another telling factor and this handicap mark on reappearance over hurdles is surely very low if able to find some of his old form.

Perhaps Dan Skelton’s six-year-old can finally get his head in front after a couple of close shaves of late.

He has made the podium on his two recent starts and could be the type to improve now switched to fences.

Although conceding weight all around, the step-up in trip looks to be in his favour and he can shed his maiden tag at the sixth time of asking.
