Good win at Exeter in January (2m3f, heavy); didn't jump or go with much conviction at Ludlow last week (good to soft) but finally warmed to the task and only just failed to get up; due 2lb rise.

Won the Kim Muir here in 2022 (3m2f, soft); well into the golden years now but he followed an excellent second over C&D (soft) with a barnstorming win over the big Aintree fences (3m2f, heavy) in December; lesser efforts since, though, and on a high mark now.

T: Venetia Williams

Ridden last two years by Lucy Turner; won at the 2022 Cheltenham Festival and, after a patchy campaign last term, never better than first two starts this season, latterly when winning by 13l over the big Aintree fences (3m2f, heavy); first race beyond that was the Welsh National, just 18 days later which might help to explain his modest show but he also made mistakes early on final circuit; 7lb higher than at Aintree and needs another career best.

Form & Verdict

Won Irish point on soft/heavy and testing conditions are important to him; can find a race on his second at Sedgefield on Boxing Day but although good ground helps to explain a lifeless effort next time, the fitting of cheekpieces suggests other factors at work.

0-8 under rules but was second in two 2m3f chases last season and was running a big race before penultimate-fence fall at Ffos Las (3m, soft) last month; still very unexposed over this sort of trip and can play a major role if the first-time visor has a positive effect.

Form & Verdict

Hasn't gone on from an encouraging chase debut at Sandown last February and has been quite moderate in handicaps this winter; however this looks less competitive and perhaps fitting cheekpieces will help.

Nothing like the force of old but seemed to take a step back in the right direction when keeping on steadily for fourth at Market Rasen (2m7f, soft) recently and Sean Bowen is a good booking here.

Winning hurdler in France; not the most fluent of jumpers over fences but he was still a clear second at Fontwell (2m3f, good to soft) the last time and gets in here off the same mark.

Mild improver in soft-ground hurdles last winter, winning here (about 2m5f), but pulled up on most recent start last February; could easily make a chaser on pedigree and is getting plenty of weight.
