The winner of two handicap chases (2m4f/3m) and one of them was at Fakenham, where he ran no race last time when tried in blinkers; the return of cheekpieces suggests he might leave that run behind but others have more compelling claims, especially on testing ground.

Won here (3m, good to soft) in first-time cheekpieces in March and bettered that performance when close second in quite valuable series final at Haydock (3m1f, good) a fortnight later; placed over marathon trip back at Haydock last month and looks interesting in first-time blinkers here.

Had a fine first campaign over fences, winning twice and good second over 3m1f here (good) in April; shaped better than the result when seventh of 17 to progressive stablemate Strictlyadancer at Cheltenham last month and this 7yo could easily have a bigger performance in the locker; interesting contender.

J: Mr R James

T: Christian Williams

Outclassed in a hot 2m5f intermediate chase this month and better judged on his chasing exploits last season, winning two of his five starts and signing off with highly credible second over 3m1f at Haydock (good); has the cheekpieces back on (unlike 12 days ago) and there's more to come from him as a stayer; tempting.

2-5 over fences last season; signed off with close second in quite valuable series final at Haydock (3m1f, good) in April and probably still has more improvement to come but faces very tough task against three smart rivals here.
