Four-time chase winner, including this race off 5lb higher mark on good ground a year ago; not getting any younger and had very mixed record last season but will be a danger to all if this is a going day.

Form & Verdict

Hasn't had much racing, and he ran creditably when second over hurdles at Warwick (2m5f, soft) in December; bred for chasing and not dismissed lightly on today's debut over fences, although he does have to put behind him a lifeless run at Hereford last time.

Pulled up over fences at Ludlow last month but left that run miles behind when exploiting lower hurdle mark over this C&D (good to soft) a fortnight ago; also effective on soft ground; having gone up 5lb he remains well treated on this year's best chase form and holds leading claims.

Very lightly raced 7yo; under pressure a long way out but he stuck on dourly to lead on the run-in when winning at Fontwell (3m2f, heavy) on Boxing Day; also has form on good ground and over 2m4f so today's conditions should not be a problem; up 2lb and in a stronger race but not ruled out.

Aintree's National fences bring out the best in him and he was pulled up in a hunter chase at Leicester (2m6f, heavy) only last Tuesday; however, he has run well over regulation fences in the past and he's a key player if leaving last time behind and rediscovering this season's best form.

Last won in May 2022 but has run many excellent races since, over regulation and the big Aintree fences, most recently over 2m5f and 3m2f (both on heavy) on the latter track this winter; found the step up to 3m5f beyond him at Warwick last time but has more obvious claims here.

Last won in May 2022 but has registered career-best form since with three placed efforts over the big fences at Aintree, including on heavy ground over 2m5f and 3m2f for his two starts this season; stayed on stoutly over that longer trip last time, so it's possible that this new distance will spark the improvement he needs.

Capitalised on a lower hurdles mark when winning 14-runner race at Lingfield (2m7f, heavy) in December under a positive ride; better over fences (six wins from 16 starts) and his most recent success in this sphere came over C&D on good ground; big player for an in-form yard.

Won Irish maiden point in 2018; fairly useful form without winning over hurdles and his latest start (his second in a chase, disputed the lead two out) was a step back in the right direction; needs to build on that and the cheekpieces he wore for first time that day are replaced by a visor.
