J: Mark Walsh

T: Joseph Patrick O’Brien

Multiple Grade 1 winner over fences; not at his best last season and began this season by finishing fifth in the December Gold Cup at Cheltenham, his first handicap chase; down to a good mark if he could find his best but looks best watched for now.

T: Joseph Patrick O’Brien

Runner-up in two Grade 1 chases at the Festival here but not seen at this track since 2021 (ran at Aintree in April last two seasons); has run in only Grade 1 and Grade 2 events for the last four years and this is his first ever handicap, with an each-way chance at the weights and trip/ground to suit; he can also go well after a break.

Fortunate to win Grade 2 at Thurles in January when left in the lead at the final fence; below-par third in Grade 1 Ascot Chase last time, 7l behind runner-up Pic D'Orhy in a race he won last year (on soft); however, he's been an impressive winner of the last two runnings of this race (good to soft) and perhaps first-time cheekpieces will give him a boost.

Justified favouritism, albeit fortuitously having been left in the lead when the likely winner took a final-fence fall, in Grade 2 at Thurles (2m4f, yielding) last month; well capable of smarter form and has four Grade 1 wins on his CV, including this race 12 months ago (followed up at Aintree); commands major respect in his bid to become the fifth dual winner of the Ascot Chase this century.
