Has a fine record over fences, winning eight of his 15 races; not at his best this season but has been running in much stronger races; well handicapped and has possibilities now down in grade but testing ground is a concern (has won on soft).

Has won eight of his 13 chase starts and ran creditably for a long way in last season's Grand National, before fading; he may have needed his reappearance over hurdles at Cheltenham four weeks ago and has won off this mark in the past; not ruled out.

Form & Verdict

Took six attempts to get off the mark in Irish points but quickly developed into a useful hurdler for new stable last season, winning three of his four starts (2m-2m1f); makes chasing debut after six-month absence but the move up in trip is likely to suit and he could have a very good future.

Course winner who is very well handicapped on form as recent as last spring but he failed to shine over fences in the autumn and it's been the same story over hurdles here the last twice; needs to get back on track.

Form & Verdict

Won a good-ground Irish point a year ago and was 2-3 in slow-ground novice hurdles (3m/3m1f) in early 2021; remains unexposed and looks a good chasing prospect but this is his first run since March and the drop in trip is not sure to suit.

Sole run on heavy was a win on rules debut; tasted success at two Cheltenham Festivals, coming from well off the pace, before the even sweeter prize of this race last year when he was never far away and had zero alarms before some idling in front after grabbing total control at the final fence (much earlier than usual); last month's Cheltenham Gold Cup (soft) seemed to show the ceiling of his ability, when it looked exceedingly hard work for him from the final fence, but that was while finishing an excellent third with career-best form; 13lb higher than last year but still well in and should go well if the Gold Cup did not make him dig too deep.

Corach Rambler

Has an unconventional streak but his spring form in the last two seasons cannot be faulted, having won the Ultima in 2022 and 2023 (3m1f; good to soft and soft) and the Grand National (4m2f) in some style last April, despite taking up the running further from home than usual; the limit of his ability has yet to be established and it would be no surprise to see him loom up late on.

Form & Verdict

Looked very promising when eased-down winner of 2m3f novice hurdle in late 2019 but had form-figures of PUR during last season's three-race chase campaign; may yet get his career back on track but comes with risk attached.

Not at best on latest hurdle start in March but is well handicapped on last autumn's form in that sphere and his point win in 2019 bodes well for his prospects as a chaser; might be the answer.
