Managed to finish second in a handicap chase at Ludlow on his penultimate outing last season but has otherwise looked very limited. Tough to make a case for back from 7 months off.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

A weak handicap chase that could go the way of LOTS OF LUCK, who ended last season on the up and should be fit enough to do himself justice on return. Veiled Secret is one of few others to arrive in form, so he's regarded as the chief threat ahead of Cesar du Gouet.
