Form & Verdict

Off the track for 813 days after the second of two 3m2f chase wins in autumn 2019 but had excuse when pulled up on this month's reappearance outing (badly hampered by faller and lost significant ground at fifth fence); contender if the old ability remains.

Form & Verdict

Won two slow-ground chases last season, the latter a quite valuable series final off today's mark at Carlisle (3m, soft; blinkered); looked out of sorts on both starts this term (once in cheekpieces; visored last time) and it's hard to know what to expect from him here; blinkers refitted.

Form & Verdict

Rallied to take modest third at Exeter (3m, good) in November, after a break, but looked laboured when well-held fifth at Plumpton the following month and was pulled up (albeit on heavy ground) when back at Exeter last time; sliding down the weights but needs to stop the rot.

Respectable third at Hereford (3m1f) last month in a veterans' chase that was dominated by 10yos; having received help from the assessor of late, he's now 8lb lower than when a close second in last season's Devon National at Exeter; strong chance on that form.

Dual course winner, latterly over today's trip on soft ground in November 2020; lightly raced and generally disappointing since but will appreciate today's drop in grade and the first-time cheekpieces might perk him up.

Hasn't won for a while and ran poorly on latest outing three weeks ago but made very bold bid from the front when fifth in valuable Veterans' Chase Series final at Sandown (3m, heavy) last month and will be very hard to catch off a 9lb lower mark if in similar form here.

Best with forcing tactics and he made a bold bid from the front when fifth in the valuable Veterans' Chase Series Final at Sandown (3m, heavy) in January; however, both runs since then have been disappointing (behind Glen Forsa and La Cavsa Nostra) and he could again be vulnerable to younger legs.

Below best during light campaign last season but was set to be placed before last-fence mishap at Bangor (3m, heavy) in January and was respectable sixth in much stronger race than this at Newbury (2m6f, good to soft) last month; may not be ideally suited by today's faster ground but could be dangerous in this grade.
