Form & Verdict

Showed some useful form over fences in early part of 2021 (including small-field hunter chase win); in career-best form over hurdles this season, winning Class 2 handicaps at Newbury and Cheltenham (3m, good to soft/soft); not at best when last in action but still a leading contender here.

Mixed form over hurdles last year and tailed off at Chepstow over Christmas when last seen; however, he showed some spark earlier in December and he won hunter chases in February 2022 (2m7f/3m2f, heavy/soft) on his last two runs over fences; capable of having a big say.

Led in the final stride at Sandown (2m7f, soft; acts on heavy) on reappearance last term; went downhill since until a change to this headgear back in the same Sandown race 18 days ago was his best performance since New Year's Day, so there is renewed hope.

Led in the final stride in this race (soft; acts on heavy) on reappearance last term; has an 8lb lower mark this time round, having gone downhill after that win and he was tailed off at Newbury one month ago; first-time blinkers replace his usual cheekpieces.

Form & Verdict

Useful hurdler/chaser in these colours when trained by Venetia Williams but, following a 401-day absence, made low-key stable debut when remote third in three-finisher point on New Year's Eve; entitled to have benefited from that outing but will need to do considerably better here.

Form & Verdict

Formerly a very useful handicap chaser; gained first win since 2019 in recent two-runner hunter chase at Wincanton (3m1f, good), easily drawing clear of his below-par opponent; it's very hard to gauge what that recent piece of form is worth but at least it proves his wellbeing; no surprise if he goes well again here.

Nothing like the force of old and his only win in the last three seasons came in a two-runner hunter chase in February 2022; runner-up in a small-field handicap in December but that's probably not good enough form and he was soundly beaten 12 days ago.

J: Freddie Gingell

Smart in his prime but his only win from eight hunter chases this year (under Freddie Gingell) was in a match; however, he is well treated on his best 2022 form and was a respectable second back in a handicap at Lingfield (2m4f, good to soft) on his recent return after 192 days off; looks interesting if he can build on that and this step back up in trip is a positive.

Form & Verdict

Very useful staying handicapper in his prime, with most notable success gained in 2020 Classic Chase at Warwick (3m5f, soft); jumped poorly and made lacklustre hunter chase debut when back at Warwick last month, though, and needs to prove he still has fire in his belly.

Useful handicap chaser on his day; won the Classic Chase here (3m5f, soft) two years ago and finished second in the Becher Chase in 2019 and 2020; has failed to fire in two starts this term, pulled up in Welsh National latest; best form gives him strong claims on hunter chase debut.

Big career best for 10l win in the 3m5f Classic at Warwick (soft; 10lb higher today) in January 2020; disappointing in the Grand National at Aintree this April and same again in the Becher there early this month, more worryingly in the latter as he had the testing ground which suits and had been runner-up in that race in the previous two seasons; something to prove and the cheekpieces (last five starts) are replaced by blinkers.
