Form & Verdict

Bumper/hurdle winner; 0-8 over fences but he would have won at Newton Abbot (2m5f, heavy) in October but for tipping up at the last and he had another near-miss two starts ago at Market Rasen (Torigni third), though he did get badly outpaced there over 2m5f before staying on; conditions are therefore a concern even if back to his best after a below-par run.

Two 2m5f chase wins (good) in small fields in early 2022 but had some disheartening results since, including when back on good ground two starts ago; down weights and worth watching in the market.

Badly out of sorts this term and the return to good ground, on which he had a good record, failed to spark any revival on latest outing; had a 15lb higher mark this time last year.

Badly out of sorts on slow ground this term; however, he's 3-4 on good going and looks interesting returned to forecast sound surface, with a revival possible; 8lb below last winning mark.

Two hurdle wins at this trip; a winning pointer before those and he made a successful start over fences in a three-runner race on good ground over 3m1f here in November; only 1lb higher now and there were excuses at Ludlow last time.

Ran respectably in two 3m events at Ascot towards the end of last year, fifth of ten in valuable contest on second occasion; requires more if he's to return to winning ways but drying ground would help his cause (all successes on good).

Form & Verdict

His two handicap victories (hurdle/chase) came off only a 1lb lower mark; it was just a three-runner race at Leicester last time (2m4f, good to firm) and there were some scares along the way at some of his fences; clearly a strong contender if finding any fluency.

Five chase starts since November, winning once (2m4f at Leicester, three ran); didn't seem to fail for stamina at 3m when below par back over hurdles at Newbury three weeks ago; likely to be thereabouts with conditions no problem but others appeal more for the win.

Five chasing starts since November, winning once (at Leicester, three ran); hurdles win off this mark a year ago but was a long way behind Orby's Legend when last seen over hurdles in October; stamina also to prove at 3m.

With a 4lb pull he doesn't have much to find with The Edgar Wallace on Market Rasen running, and his subsequent form includes a C&D success (on fast ground) two runs ago; not dismissed back here.

Smart at his best when trained by Gordon Elliott, finishing fourth in the 2020 Coral Cup at Cheltenham; failed to progress in four chase starts for that yard and returns to this discipline with a regressive profile.

Grade 2 hurdle winner for Gordon Elliott in 2020 and he's tumbled down the weights; one to watch in the betting but he's struggled this season and has finished well beaten back over fences the last twice.
