Form & Verdict

C&D winner in March and also won at Worcester in June; no disgrace when second at Kempton last month (in cheekpieces, usual blinkers return now) and he is far more persuasive on recent form than his sole rival.

Won four chases for Philip Hobbs in 2021 (2m7f-3m; one here) and is pretty versatile regarding ground but, following a long absence, showed no promise on his recent stable debut; now reverts to hurdling for first time since 2019; tongue-tie/cheekpieces removed; blinkers refitted.

Won four chases for Philip Hobbs in 2021 (2m7f-3m) and is pretty versatile regarding ground but this stable debut comes after a 402-day absence, so he's entitled to need the run.

Form & Verdict

Ran some good races last season, off much higher marks, but hasn't recovered that form this term; tailed off at Sedgefield latest but at least he is only 1lb out of the weights this time and has one to beat.

Form & Verdict

Has taken well to chasing, winning twice, but nowhere near his best when last of three at Hereford on Tuesday (jumping lacked fluency); have to be doubts if he reappears.

Posted a good RPR of 126 in winning a small-field handicap chase at Hereford two years ago but has achieved precious little in just three subsequent starts, the latest a novice hurdle following a long absence; well handicapped if as good as he was.

Placed over hurdles before raising his game over fences, twice posting a useful RPR of 126; stays 3m+ well so could find this trip on the sharp side back hurdling and his absence is a further concern.

T: Jamie Snowden

Made it two wins (2m6f/3m1f, good/good to firm) from four chase runs when scoring at Hereford in October and had an excuse when tailed off at Hereford in November (bled from nose); hard to be overly confident here and he's unproven on soft, but no surprise if he gets back on track with a good run.
