J: Harry Skelton

T: Dan Skelton

Registered a Grade 1 win over 2m4f at this meeting three years ago; campaigned mostly at further since but proved well suited by the drop back to this distance in the Ryanair at Cheltenham (soft) four weeks ago, staying on strongly to beat Envoi Allen by 4l going away; unexposed at this trip in open company and holds major claims.

Can front-run; flopped when bidding for a second success in the Betfair Chase (3m1f); back in better form (over 2m6f-3m2f) since, most recently third in Newbury Grade 2 (half a length behind Hitman on worse terms); ran respectably in the Cheltenham Gold Cup for the last two years; has the class to play a major role, provided he copes with this drop back in trip; has not raced over 2m4f since 2021.

Top-class staying chaser on his day, but he wasn't quite at his best in two runs here early this year and he flopped when bidding for back-to-back Betfair Chases at Haydock three weeks ago; now has a bit to prove in his first handicap since November 2021.
