Form & Verdict

Fair fourth on last month's chase debut at Leicester (2m6f, good to soft); this 8yo who hasn't had much racing and could build on that latest effort, but she was beaten 11l and certainly needs extra to win today.

Well beaten on both chase starts for Oliver Sherwood, the latest at Uttoxeter last September, and has since changed yards; however, he's well handicapped on his hurdle form and it'll be interesting to see how he goes in the betting on his stable debut.

Showed very little in a bumper and three novice hurdles, and he's 18lb wrong at the weights for this handicap and chase debut; however, he won his sole point-to-point at Alnwick in December 2020 and today's switch to fences and big step up in trip could be major positives; watch the betting.

Form & Verdict

May have appreciated the return to better ground when scoring at Wetherby (3m, good to soft) 12 days ago on his third chase start; this unexposed 6yo could have more to offer over fences and he's a key player up 5lb provided he's also suited by today's conditions.

No match for wide-margin winner when second at Doncaster (3m2f, good) last month and was just a respectable fourth behind Twenty Twenty at Wincanton (3m1f, soft) 17 days later; on very good mark now but needs to up his game and would appeal more on better ground.
