Form & Verdict

Didn't convince over fences late last year but he's well handicapped on his hurdle form (won the 2020 Betfair Hurdle) and things may click for him in this discipline at some point; respected on reappearance.

Rock-solid chaser at about 2m4f and has form figures of 11121121 since the start of last season, most recently making all in the Grade 1 Ascot Chase (good to soft; unchallenged); ran on strongly to land this contest (on soft ground) last year, depriving Fakir D'oudairies of a third straight Melling success, and commands respect back here.

Reliable over fences; runner-up to Shishkin in this race (good to soft) 12 months ago and was left with little to beat when the same horse refused to race here in November; at least as good as ever when second to the classy Banbridge in another Grade 2 at Kempton five weeks ago; solid candidate.

Straightforward task in similar event at Ascot (2m5f, good) seven weeks ago, having been left with little to beat when Shishkin refused to race; may need to work harder in this field but still commands major respect, being 2-2 at Kempton including a success in this race 12 months ago (soft); 8-16 overall as a chaser and has won five of his last six appearances.

Form & Verdict

Course bumper winner (2m, heavy) who won twice from six attempts over hurdles (2m/2m3f, soft); brings potential to this chase debut but he'll have something to prove if the ground is good (has been a non-runner three times because of such going).

Three wins (2m-2m4f, soft/good to soft) from his five hurdle starts last season and this lightly raced point winner could be even better over fences; unraced on good ground.

Winning pointer who quickly developed into a very useful novice hurdler last season, winning three of his five starts (2m-2m4f); could have a bright future over fences and needs to be taken very seriously; raced only on good to soft or soft ground.

Fell over fences on first two starts this season and unseated three out when back over hurdles last Saturday, so it's hard to know what sort of form he's in; however, he was still going okay last time and this lightly raced 8yo retains potential judged on last season's promise; not ruled out.

Dual novice hurdle winner last season before creditable sixth of 22 on handicap debut at Aintree festival (2m4f, good to soft); switched to chasing this autumn but fell on both outings; a confidence-boosting clear round might be his main priority here but he still has potential.

Made virtually all to win at Aintree (2m4f, good) in June on third chase start and has run well in defeat since (2m5f, good to firm-good to soft); proven over fences, which could count for a lot in this field.

Back pretty much at his best when second in the Summer Cup at Uttoxeter in early July; not so good when favourite there (again 3m2f on good) four weeks later, 13l behind Hell Red, and needs to revert to that better form.

Clear second in this contest last year then went one better (off this mark) in C&D event next time out; well-held fourth to Kinondo Kwetu at Aintree most recently but looks interesting returned to Uttoxeter.
