Form & Verdict

His last win was in December 2018 but he's well treated on his old chase form and ended last season with a creditable fourth of 13 in a Grade 3 handicap (3m1f, good to soft, first-time cheekpieces) at Aintree; drops back in trip after 210 days off but he travelled well for a long way last time and has claims if he can pick up where he left off; has had wind surgery.

Possibilities if returning to his early-season form last campaign but now has to bounce back from two non-completions; the return of cheekpieces (tried blinkers last time) is a positive and he's got himself well handicapped.

Well handicapped on his best chase form but his last win was almost three years ago and he was well held in his final two runs last season; has something to prove after 228 days off and others are preferred.

Off the mark in Britain when arriving late at Wetherby last month (2m5f, good); his Newcastle second (2m4f, heavy) off this 3lb higher mark was no backward step and this belated return to further shouldn't be too big an issue.

Quite consistent and off the mark in Britain at the 18th attempt when swooping late at Wetherby this month; 3lb rise neither here nor there and expert at completing but overall record suggests he may prove vulnerable.

10l runner-up at Kelso (2m5f, heavy) in January and occupied the same position at Musselburgh (2m4f, soft) a fortnight ago; also effective on good ground; however, it looked to be a weak race last time and this 11yo is now 0-17 since arriving from France; may again find some others to be too good.

Form & Verdict

Put in a dominant display when getting off the mark over fences at Ayr (2m4f, soft) in March but that was in a small field and he was a well-held sixth at the same track the following month; still lightly raced in this sphere and drops back in trip/grade on his return but he probably needs to kick on again to defy this mark.

Strong traveller who is a triple chase winner and ran to near his best when a staying-on third of 14 at Carlisle (2m4f, soft) in his final run last season; returns from 223 days off but he won on his reappearance last term and this is a drop back in grade; interesting.

Admirable 13yo who ran well in defeat during a light last season and, after a heavy defeat on his Cheltenham comeback, he narrowly returned to winning ways in a 3m heavy-ground Class 3 handicap at Ayr; ran a good fourth in the veterans' final here just over a year ago and needs considering.

Just one win in first 22 starts but he doubled his tally with a runaway success in a Class 3 at Ayr (3m, good to soft) in May; 8lb higher on his return but that was a clear personal best and his first win came at this track (2m7f) on his reappearance last season; strongly respected back in trip.

Form & Verdict

All seven rules wins have been gained at Perth including a narrow success in a Class 3 chase handicap (3m, good) in September; has run creditably in both subsequent starts, including away from his favoured track at Carlisle three weeks ago; this is a deeper race and he looks weighted near his best but he's a versatile type who should give it another good shot back in trip.

Form & Verdict

Lightly raced 8yo who added to his point/hurdle wins when landing a handicap chase at Market Rasen (2m5f, soft) for Ruth Jefferson in November 2019; has not been seen since but this unexposed chaser is on the same mark as last time and needs watching in market on comeback for new yard.
