Out of his depth in Grade 2 novice at Cheltenham Festival; 5-5 over rules fences otherwise, most recently beating Revels Hill by 1l at Exeter (3m6f, good to soft; pair well clear); highly progressive in handicaps, no ground worries, stays well and may not have reached his ceiling yet; shortlisted.

Bit off more than he could chew in the National Hunt Chase at Cheltenham but had been going great guns with four successive wins from 2m7f to 3m3f (three at Fontwell); this is nothing like so demanding as at the Festival but it's still a step up from the grade in which he was winning; respected nonetheless.

Big improvement switched to chasing, with one win at Lingfield and three at Fontwell; 19l and 17l were the last two winning margins, the latest over 3m4f (good to soft) and he goes well in the mud; that handicap form leaves him with a lot to find but he's certainly been impressing at that much lower level.

Well beaten on the last two of her three starts but wasn't disgraced on her debut in November (1m7f); upped significantly in trip for today's handicap debut and worth a glance in the betting.

20/1

Minor promise when 17l fifth on November's hurdles debut at Leicester (2m, good to soft); have to hope she takes to today's blinkers far better than the cheekpieces of last time's listless Hereford effort.

50/1
