Ran big race when second to Amateur in this contest at year ago (good to soft) and was placed on first three starts this season; strong claims if judged on that evidence but her last two runs were very disappointing and she now has a point to prove.

Placed on her first three starts this season, albeit with backward steps on form; trainer suggested she may have been brought out again too quickly (ten days on) when she then pulled up on latest outing; needs a return to last season's peak.

Form & Verdict
Very useful over hurdles in 2019 (including on soft); lightly raced since and hasn't hit the same heights over fences, finishing soundly beaten at Ascot last time out in November; however, he may have needed that run and he's in calculations judged on his hunter chase second at Worcester last May.

Mostly out of form this season but was reportedly suited by being able to dominate when winning by 8l at favourite track Warwick (3m5f, good to soft) last month; still well handicapped on older form but it's questionable whether things will pan out so favourably for him here.

Proved his stamina when winning this race off 15lb higher last year (good to soft) but has not kicked on this season and was pulled up on soft ground at Exeter last time; very well treated after tumbling down the weights and perhaps the return to this track and the likely better ground may rejuvenate him.

Well beaten at Ludlow last time where his jumping lacked fluency, but his trainer reported he "wasn't right" and he jumped left on occasions so today's return to a left-handed track may help; beat Lord Accord on chase debut at Exeter (3m, good to soft) in November and lost two shoes when fourth at Wetherby next time; has won on soft ground and retains potential.
