Capitalised upon some significant help from the handicapper when beating three rivals at Leicester (2m4f, soft) in early March but well beaten twice since and not an easy one to predict.

J: Lee Edwards

T: John Groucott

Has similar profile to Ballinsker, in that he needed quite a bit of help from the handicapper before gaining his first chase win; went back up only 2lb for his small-field success at Leicester (2m4f, soft) last month and should be fine on today's quicker surface but needs to bounce back from a duff effort three weeks ago.

14l adrift of Keep Rolling when second at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good) in January but opened chasing account in small-field contest at Leicester (2m4f, soft) this month; the winning form probably isn't anything to get too excited about but he's only 2lb higher here and remains very well treated on hurdling form.

Winless since early 2020, but he wasn't disgraced when sixth in 3m2f Chepstow handicap last month; he's just as effective at this shorter trip and needs considering eased 2lb now.

T: Jonjo O’Neill

More than two years have passed since his last success but he's knocked on the door a few times over fences and hurdles; only four ran when second at Leicester last time but 2m4f would have been on the short side for him; best rules form is on deep ground but he won a point on good.

Point/hurdles winner; 0-4 as a chaser but has shown encouraging signs back in this sphere the last twice, finishing second at Bangor (2m4f) then running respectably when brought down two out at Ffos Las (2m5f); gives the impression this new trip is well worth a shot; shortlisted.

Form & Verdict
Has yet to build on his Warwick 2m4f fourth on his first go over fences, though he was prominent to two out over 3m at Bangor last time; he may still do better now back over shorter.

Arguably his best run yet over fences when beaten about 7l at Leicester (2m4f, soft) where he kept jumping to the left; this track will help in that respect and he should stay 3m, but nearly all his form is on softer ground.

Made underwhelming seasonal/chase debut when well-held fourth at Warwick (2m4f, good to soft) in November and fell at ninth fence at Chepstow last month; remains lightly raced for his age and could have untapped potential over 3m but has more to prove than some.

Brother to a point winner and closely related to a bumper and 2m2f-2m4f hurdle winner; pulled well clear with the winner when beaten 1l in maiden point (good) in April; worth monitoring in the market on rules debut.
