Top winner for this Michael Scudamore runner. Original quote: "Had an excuse last time as lost a shoe in the race so can ignore that run at Ascot. Dropped 4lbs though helps and we've given him a break since. Has shown ability, but still a maiden (8 runs) - however, this is only his second run over fences and chasing has always been the plan for him. Had a little break (4 months) since his last run and seems well for it - is also a horse that seems to enjoy running off a lay-off and being fresh. If building on that debut run over fences would have an e/w chance."
