Form & Verdict

The winner of his only point and did well in novice hurdles last season until coming up well short in a strong handicap at Sandown; never gave his running on switch to fences at Newton Abbot (2m) and jumping out to the right didn't help; this course should suit and he retains plenty of potential; fine on all ground.

Back-to-back wins over 2m2f at Kempton (held when left in lead at last on second of them) but failed to run his race back there (2m) last time; likes to get on with it and could find himself embroiled in a battle for the lead with fellow front-runner Prince Escalus.

Form & Verdict

Has won over hurdles and fences at this track, including this trip; with the exception of his non-completion at Sandown in April it's been a solid run of form in this discipline and his third here three weeks ago when perhaps needing the run was encouraging; last win was off 4lb lower but without Tabitha Worsley's claim; chance.

Won a 20-runner handicap hurdle over 2m5f here two seasons ago off this very mark under Sam Twiston-Davies (for father Nigel); failed to kick on last campaign after a promising beginning but he's on a dangerous mark if taking to fences and his new trainer has started the season well; first-time headgear; interesting.

Well beaten over hurdles here on last month's reappearance but he was without these cheekpieces and his form hit new heights over fences last season, winning two Grade 3 handicaps (3m, good) before failing to stay 4m2f in the Grand National; further improvement is possible and he could be a threat.

Started on the Flat but has been a rising force through his five campaigns over jumps; this term he's knuckled down admirably to prevail on the run-in in valuable 3m handicaps at Ascot and Kempton, both on good ground but he scored last season on soft; 4lb well-in compared to his recently revised mark; unraced beyond 3m1f but trainer says "this lad stays forever".

Returned to winning ways from out of the blue at Fontwell (2m2f, soft; first-time cheekpieces), making all the running; by no means guaranteed to be as good again but he's a previous winner of this race on good ground and you wouldn't put it past him to follow up.

Not the force of old but he tends to come alive here, winning this race in 2020 and going down narrowly (good to soft ground) 12 months ago; mainly in the doldrums since but there were signs of a revival at Plumpton 18 days ago and he's thrown in on his best form despite being 3lb out of the weights.

Always at his most potent on good or quicker ground and he ran well back from a break in a Fontwell handicap hurdle before finishing tailed off a month ago; not the easiest to predict but better known as a chaser these days and he's 6lb lower than when pushing this season's Cheltenham winner Before Midnight close at Chepstow in April.
