Form & Verdict

Won two 2m7f chases in this month last year, the latter off 2lb lower at Taunton (good to firm); ended last season with a duff effort, though, and also ran poorly when back in action 11 days ago; needs first-time cheekpieces to give him a boost; usual tongue-tie left off.

Has won a couple of small-field points during the past year but there's nothing in his profile - under rules or between the flags - to suggest he'll be having a lot to say in today's company.

In decline when leaving Philip Hobbs but revived to win two points and it was a decent hunter chase in which he ran third at Taunton (2m7f, good).

Three chase wins last season, the latest when finishing well for last-gasp success at Chepstow (2m7f, good) in April; only 1lb higher for today's reappearance and further progress possible this term.

Given 98-day break after falling at Southwell in July; form of his clear second at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good) in June reads well and he's completely unexposed over 3m.

J: Tom Bellamy

T: Oliver Sherwood

Hasn't progressed as seemed likely a few years ago and his last two runs have been poor, but he now returns from wind surgery off a career-low mark; good ground suits (all three wins on a sound surface), and although unproven beyond 2m4f he gives the impression he'll stay 3m; possibilities.

J: Jonathan Burke

Handles most ground; best form at up to 2m4f and unproven over this far, having fallen four out on first attempt at it and may have been remembering that mishap when well held at Exeter since; needs turnaround for the fitting of cheekpieces.

Form & Verdict

0-6 over fences and absent since below-par run in May but was placed on consecutive starts in March (once over C&D) and resumes on a workable mark; no surprise if he features.

Dual chase winner who got back near her best with a close second over C&D last month; that was behind a progressive subsequent winner and she's respected off only 1lb higher here; seems equally effective on good and soft ground.

Dual chase winner last season, over 2m6f (good) and 3m (soft; beat two rivals); below best in two runs this winter and her jumping lacked assurance, albeit in a much better race, when fourth in the Southern National; this should be more her level.
