Third at Market Rasen then ran into the same progressive rival as Ellaat faced here last time when runner-up at Catterick in January; below his best latest but return to that earlier level of form would see him involved.

Form & Verdict
Formerly useful 10yo; had fallen in the weights prior to finishing third of five at Market Rasen (2m4f, good to soft) six weeks ago; all his wins have come around 2m and he should go close, at the least, if building on that last run.

Form & Verdict
In and out in recent times but he came good on just his third start for Milton Harris when scoring in clearcut style over fences at Bangor (2m1f, soft) nine days ago; can run off the same mark here and he was a C&D winner earlier in his career; has to be respected.

Two chase wins this spring and the latest, at Newbury this month, came off 9lb higher; however, he was beaten off this mark over hurdles before that which tempers confidence, even though he is clearly in fine form.

Form plunged for Dan Skelton after impressive front-running win at Huntingdon last February (2m, soft) but back to best for new yard at Bangor in March (2m1f, soft) and has since run well over hurdles; still on a fair chase mark off 4lb lower than at Huntingdon and claims if holding his form on this third quickish run.

Consistent miler for Chris Wall and he handles soft ground; later bought for 44,000gns; didn't look a natural hurdler at Newbury (soft) so did well to be beaten only 10l and was 11l ahead of Accidental Legend; if finding greater fluency he should be bang there.

Absent since tailed off in this race last year, when found to be suffering from atrial fibrillation; has had a fourth wind operation since; however, he goes well fresh (has won after a longer layoff previously) and this lightly raced 10yo returns to action on a handy mark; interesting contender.

Modest strike-rate of 2-26 over hurdles, his last win coming at Haydock (2m, heavy) in January 2021; below that mark for the first time since, but efforts this season have not suggested an imminent return to winning ways.

Determined C&D winner (soft; 6lb lower mark, but now claimer ridden) on penultimate start, and can be forgiven his subsequent effort at Wetherby (finished lame); still low mileage over hurdles (1-6), although will need to take another step forward in this better race.
