J: Harry Skelton

T: Dan Skelton

Classy at 2m4f-3m in his prime but he had a career-changing fall in October 2021 and it's been a long road back; however, he raced with zest in first-time cheekpieces at Ascot (2m3f, good) last month when, after getting outpaced in the straight, he rallied after the last into a close third; has a real chance at the weights, having dropped 23lb since his peak mark.

High-class chaser at 2m4f-3m in his prime but he took a terrible fall at Wetherby two years ago and hasn't been the same since; easily excused a pulled-up run over hurdles in November and it's just possible he didn't act on the track when back over fences at Chepstow since, but the fitting of cheekpieces adds to the doubts.

Seemed to be running away with 2021 Charlie Hall Chase before crashing out at third-last fence but not much has gone to plan since; pulled up on sole appearance last season and also when reappearing over hurdles last month; leap of faith required to support him at present.

In the process of registering a big career best when he fell in Grade 2 chase at Wetherby (3m, good to soft) in October 2021; has run only three times since and pulled up when favourite back at Wetherby last Christmas on latest start; has big-race entries over fences next month but there are questions to answer on this first hurdles run since March 2020.
