He’s had a second wind surgery since that facile success in October and James Bowen retains the partnership over a trip that he appears to have improved for.

Hell Red gets a first crack at this trip and his yard have won the last two renewals of this race, so he has to be taken seriously.

However, he returned to form at this track last month when finishing second but now has the benefit of a claimer who takes a further 2lb off his back.

Sue West’s Air Hair Lair looks the obvious danger following the recent rainfall and he has finished outside of the places only once in his last eight outings.
