Form & Verdict

Seemed to get the trip when tried over 3m2f at Cheltenham last time, albeit beaten a long way into third; previous second at Newbury (2m6f, good to soft) gives him claims but a couple of these rivals are more appealing.

0-5 since joining Neil Mulholland last spring but his close fifth of 19 on the Old course here (3m1f, good) in October was a good performance; could have a say if fully tuned up after 173-day break; best on good ground.

Form & Verdict

A win and a second at Wetherby (2m3f/3m, good to soft) after joining this yard from France and found to have mucus in his larynx when pulled up there last time (started favourite); not totally exposed and his stable has enjoyed a few successes since the turn of the year.

Hinted at a return to form at Wetherby and then made most of the running to win by 13l in a small field at Carlisle (2m4f, soft); that trip looked on the sharp side for this thorough stayer so all in all it was a highly positive performance; back up 7lb but has competitive form off this sort of mark.

Won over C&D in October 2021 on British debut and he's well handicapped on last season's form; encouraging fourth on his reappearance at Sedgefield (3m5f, soft) in October but he's struggled the last twice (3m3f/3m) and has something to prove now back down in trip.

Form & Verdict

In good form last spring but has lost his way since and been pulled up on his last two starts; inching down the weights but hard to fancy until signalling a return to form.

10yo who is well handicapped on his old hurdle/chase form and wasn't disgraced over hurdles here last month when back from a long absence; struggled with his jumping over fences 11 days ago and reverts to hurdling this afternoon for his in-form stable, but others arrive with less to prove.

Went close over fences at Newcastle (2m4f, good to soft) in February 2022 then absent until Wetherby (2m3f, soft) six weeks ago, when not running badly over hurdles; he's well handicapped on his old form and it will be no surprise to see a big run for his in-form yard.

Form & Verdict

Winner of two of his six chases last season but signed off on a disappointing note at Ayr (3m, good); has had wind surgery ahead of this return to action; remains open to improvement and any rain would be welcome.

Losing sequence goes back 14 races to early 2021 but he has run well this season and some late idling cost him the race over 3m at Carlisle last time (heavy); finished third in this two years ago when 3lb higher; solid chance.

Went close here (2m4f, heavy) last March and kicked off this campaign with two good second-place finishes at Ayr (3m, soft/heavy); not at the top of his game at Newcastle the last twice and his losing sequence goes back 13 races to March 2021, but he's capable of having a say if bouncing back to form.

Form & Verdict

Form has taken off on last two starts with comfortable wins at Sedgefield (2m5f, soft) and Kelso (2m6f, heavy); up a total of 21lb for those successes but surprising if he has reached the ceiling of his ability and he shapes as though this step up in trip will suit; ran well on good ground in a bumper.

Classy stayer over fences, finishing second in Grade 2 Cotswold Chase at Cheltenham (3m1f, soft) last season; soundly beaten fifth when back over hurdles in Grade 2 at Haydock (3m, heavy) in February on belated reappearance, but may have needed the run and his chase form gives him a big shout.

Runner-up in Grade 2 chase at Cheltenham (3m1f, soft) last January; the absence since March and the return to hurdles are the question marks today, but he showed promise in novice hurdles in 2021 and his trainer's horses often go well when fresh; major player if reproducing best chase form.

Brought steadily through the ranks over fences last season and has carried on the good work this winter, albeit needing an extra push if he's to beat Ahoy Senor and Noble Yeats on 3m1f course form in January (soft) on these less favourable terms.
