Form & Verdict

Has come up short in four 2m handicaps since winning off 10lb lower at Sandown last March, though all of them were fairly hot contests and there wasn't much wrong with his latest Cheltenham effort; off the same mark but this might not be so demanding; won on very soft ground in France.

On a 15-race losing run and hasn't been at his very best on last three starts; however, last month's sixth in the Plate at Cheltenham was a big step back in the right direction and he's on a handy mark on form such as his third in the Grand Sefton over C&D (heavy) in November; each-way chance.

Latest win in January 2022; the step up to 2m4f wasn't a success in last year's Plate but he ran two good races over C&D in midwinter (soft and heavy; effective on good to soft) and now 7lb lower than the latest of them; out of sorts since but not ignored for yard that has won this three times.

Proving difficult to win with, last scoring in January 2022; however, he was running with great credit this season (2m4f/2m5f, heavy-good to soft) until an early mistake cost him when favourite back over 2m at Lingfield two weeks ago; player.

Form & Verdict

A progressive graph over fences until blotting his copybook at Newbury in November but he bounced straight back from that to make most at Wetherby (1m7f, soft) over Christmas when his jumping was particularly sure-footed; 7lb rise asks a question of him but could well be up to it.

Very useful triple chase winner (peak RPR of 151) who had no trouble taking advantage of a golden opportunity in a novice hurdle at Market Rasen (2m, good to soft) last month; wasn't at his best over fences last time but he's still lightly raced over hurdles and is a major payer back in this sphere.

Form & Verdict

Hard to believe he's had jumping issues considering how fluent he was when winning comfortably at Chepstow (2m, heavy) and he still looks well handicapped off 5lb higher, especially considering his hurdling exploits; goes well on this ground and if the wheels stay on he'll go well.

Form & Verdict

Maintained this season's momentum with a gutsy success on heavy ground at Kelso (2m1f) three weeks ago, for which a 2lb nudge isn't too damaging; also interesting is that he beat Eclair D'Ainay on not dissimilar terms at that same track last March; needs respecting.

Downhill since runner-up at Plumpton (3m1f, good to soft) in November 2022 but has slipped to a theoretically more manageable mark (14lb lower) as a result; could potentially strip fitter since last month's Chepstow run, so a case can be made.

Form & Verdict

Both wins have come on right-handed tracks but ran one of his better races going left handed and he's entitled to have needed his reappearance in a hot handicap at Ascot; only 4lb higher than when looking so good at Hereford last March (2m, soft); dangerous to dismiss.
