FIRAK is fancied to make a winning return in the Thanks To Dai Matthews Maiden Hurdle (2.10) at Chepstow.

Dan Skelton's runner reappears in the 2m 3f contest after an 83-day break.

A wind operation has been carried out in that time, as the leading stable goes for the win at the seventh attempt.

If the procedure works then the six-year-old could be tough to beat here, given his useful piece of form from his only run at the track.

In October 2019 he finished second to Severano, now a 148-rated chaser.

Decent handicappers Fado Des Brosses, Come On Teddy and Arrivederci were in behind the selection.

Rated similarly to Champagne Rhythm, who reappears fairly quickly after his brave run on Welsh National day, Firak can have the edge here.
