Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

Despite going in snatches, ENRY IGGINS left his chase debut effort in his wake when rallying to get on top in the dying strides at Doncaster in November. The fitting of cheekpieces may help now and a 3 lb higher mark ought not prevent a bold follow-up bid. Fellow last-time-out winner Neil The Legend and Kilpin are others fancied to feature.
