Fairly useful hurdles winner who has left opening chase exploits in his wake of late, landing a pair of small-field 2m handicaps. However, more on his plate in this stronger affair under a penalty.

He has won two hurdle races and two chases from 2m to 2m 1f on ground varying from good to soft to heavy. Won on his latest outing in a chase when 4-6fav at Carlisle over 2m (soft) earlier this month, beating Fanzio by 4 1/2l. Carries a 7lb penalty today for that success. Has also won at Chepstow this season.

Point winner, and dual 19f hurdle winner in 2018 for Olly Murphy. Not long with this yard and signs of promise over fences of late, third at Market Rasen (19f) latest. Drop in trip worth exploring.

He has won two hurdle races and a point-to-point from 2m 3f to 3m on soft and heavy ground, but last win was over two years ago. Third of 8 behind Zolfo beaten 2l at 3-1fav on his latest outing in a chase at Market Rasen over 2m 3f (soft) last month.

At The Races Verdict

BILLINGSLEY hasn't looked back since unseating his rider at Bangor, scoring at Hereford and Haydock, and a further 7lb rise might not be enough to stop him completing the hat-trick. Dorking Cock also chases three wins in a row after ploughing through testing conditions to prevail at Chepstow and Carlisle, and he is an obvious danger. Ballinslea Bridge can't be ruled out off the same mark as when third at Market Rasen.

Timeform Verdict

BILLINGSLEY has more on his plate from a career-high mark, yet he's been impressive in landing back-to-back 2m handicaps in recent months, his jumping/attitude looking particularly useful assets. He's open to further improvement and is fancied to make a bold bid to complete the hat-trick. Saint de Vassy, who boasts a solid second behind the selection, and Ballinslea Bridge rate next best.
