Form & Verdict

Has done well since the blinkers went on, recording front-running wins at Newton Abbot (soft) and then over C&D (good) 26 days ago; up another 3lb but he jumped well before staying on strongly last time and still looks feasibly treated; big player again in his hat-trick bid.

Apart from his third at Huntingdon in January, he has been most disappointing in the last 18 months, showing little enthusiasm; pulled up over C&D latest (hampered) but perhaps Jamie Moore can inspire him.

Raced with a lot more enthusiasm than has become the norm when third at Huntingdon (2m7f, good to soft) in January but was quickly back in the doldrums at Plumpton the following month and it's hard to predict the extent to which this regressive 9yo will warm to the task here.

J: Caoilin Quinn

T: Gary Moore

Third over C&D in January on penultimate start but that's some way below his best form and far and away the best he's achieved this season; having a 17lb lower mark than this time last year helps somewhat and his stable has had lots of recent winners.

Form & Verdict

Recorded his fourth chase win when forging clear at Ffos Las (3m, good to soft) in May but he's been well below that form in three runs since, most recently when fourth of five at Newton Abbot (first-time visor) in August; drops back in trip/grade but he's still 5lb higher than for his last success and has something to prove.

Four-time chase winner, most recently off 2lb lower at Ffos Las (3m, good to soft) in May; no match for easy winner when second at Wincanton (3m1f, good to firm) last month but benefits from a drop in grade today and features prominently in calculations; blinkers removed.

4-23 over fences; nothing like the force of old and had pretty hard race when second at Fontwell (3m2f, good to soft) two weeks ago but he'll be fine on today's fast ground and might be boosted by a change of headgear.

Form & Verdict

Made it second-time lucky over fences with a 40-1 win in blinkers at Exeter (3m, good) in March but he flopped in his bid for double at Sedgefield the following month; still lightly raced but has a very patchy profile and it's hard to know what to expect after 175 days off; headgear removed.

Form & Verdict

Smart at up to 3m2f in his prime but this 12yo has regressed and become very inconsistent; now 3lb lower than for his front-running win in a veterans' chase at Lingfield (2m4f, heavy) last December but has a very mixed record since and he returned from a break with a pulled-up effort at Newton Abbot in August; others more convincing.

Teenager who was smart in his prime but has looked out of sorts in all three chases this season; unraced over hurdles since 2018 and urgently needs to prove some ability remains.

Form & Verdict

Hold up performer who didn't really fire when a well-held fourth at Worcester (2m7f, good) in June but that was after a win in similar conditions there the previous month; still looks feasibly treated on that penultimate form and this step back up in trip is no problem; dangerous back from a break.

Quirky customer who was fairly useful in his prime but hasn't fired since returning from a long absence this year; arguably ran better than eventual 38l defeat suggests at Exeter a fortnight ago but others appeal more all the same.

Quirky customer who was never going before pulling up at Chepstow (3m6f); that was his second quiet run since returning from a long absence and he might not be as good as he was.
