T: Oliver Greenall & Josh Guerriero

Acts on soft; won on the bridle at Warwick in November then picked up an injury; unable to get competitive in the Turners at Cheltenham (again over 2m4f) on return to action but should still have more to offer; ran well over 3m in the Sefton on this card last year; interesting back up in trip.

T: Oliver Greenall & Josh Guerriero

Very progressive over hurdles last term (on good/soft), winning the Martin Pipe at this meeting and third in 3m Grade 1 novice at Aintree; impressive over fences at Warwick (2m4f) in November, cruising home on the bridle in a race that Stage Star won en route to 2023 Turners success; picked up an injury soon afterwards and was deemed out for the season but has recovered faster than expected; exciting contender who brings lots of potential to this second chase attempt.

J: Mark Walsh

T: Oliver Greenall & Josh Guerriero

Very progressive handicapper who finished with good late surge to win at last month's Cheltenham Festival (2m4f, soft; has also won on good); that performance already gives him a good chance on the figures here, and he's open to further improvement if suited by today's step up in trip; respected.

11st 5lb

J: Aidan Kelly

T: Oliver Greenall & Josh Guerriero

Promising fourth in major juvenile hurdles last term on his first two British starts (ex-French); has justified favouritism in two handicaps at Wetherby (2m3f, good/soft) upped in trip this season, the latest powerfully by 14l; improving 5yo who is one to consider.
