Form & Verdict

Lightly raced since winning the Grade 1 Tolworth Novice Hurdle in January 2019 and yet to fully recapture that promise; however, he's shown plenty of spark in this tongue-tie over fences the last twice, with a near-miss and a win, and he's on a handy mark for his first handicap; key player.

Often a front-runner; has won on soft but seems ideally suited by good/good to soft; rallied gamely to beat odds-on Jonbon in the rescheduled Clarence House here in January, making it three wins from his last four starts; however, looks far from sure to confirm placings with that otherwise superior rival who blew his chance with a dodgy round of jumping; in great form this term but needs better still to land a Champion Chase.

Very useful chaser who has done well in high-quality handicaps (good to soft) this term, winning at Exeter (Haldon Gold Cup) and Newbury then respectable third to Editeur Du Gite at Kempton (Desert Orchid Chase); now worse off with that rival and appears unlikely to reverse the placings but should give his running in current form.

Form & Verdict

Won at Southwell (2m, good) in November on third chase start and good second in first-time cheekpieces (retained) at Wetherby (1m7f, soft) last month, again keeping on well; today's extra yardage could be a plus, as well as this first chase run at a right-handed track (can jump to the right).

Back to form with a couple of seconds and he was clear at one point under a positive ride last time at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good; same mark); interesting to see if similar tactics are employed here as he could be tough to reel in.

Form & Verdict

Beat just two rivals when making all on chase debut at Fakenham (2m, good) in October but did it easily and is now 3-5 since joining Sam Thomas; a 5lb rise for last time isn't harsh and he can make another bold bid.

Form & Verdict

Ran just twice last season, with a fair fourth on his chase debut in a hot Warwick novice (2m, good) before a heavy defeat in the competitive Betfair Hurdle; again well beaten over hurdles on reappearance at Newbury but 2m4f seemed to stretch him and this course novice hurdle winner is on a good mark if he retains his old ability; in top hands and capable of going well.

Useful novice two seasons ago but was confined to only two sightings last campaign, finishing a remote fourth over fences before trailing in tailed off in the big handicap hurdle here in February; reportedly had some minor issues afterwards; still young enough to regain his best form on which he's not impossibly treated.
