Useful chaser at his best but didn't fire on either start over fences this season and was unable to land a telling blow when back over hurdles last month; needs to turn a corner.

Two-time hurdle winner who scored over fences at Wetherby last March; however, this 10yo has been below par in chases on his two outings this season and a return to form is needed.

Progressive when switched to fences in 2019-20 season and he won his last two starts that season (2m3f/2m6f, soft/heavy); however, he's been absent since and is now an 11yo; the betting may be informative on return.

Won two in a row in early 2020 (2m3f/2m6f, heavy/soft) and it was his first run since when a staying-on second at Wetherby (2m3f, heavy) this March; however, this 11yo was well beaten when falling four out at Wetherby (3m, good to soft) in October and he's hard to fancy on the back of that.

Won two in a row in early 2020 (2m3f/2m6f, heavy/soft) and it was his first run since when a staying-on second here (2m3f, heavy) this March, which provides optimism this 11yo remains as good as ever; effective on good to soft earlier in career; respected back from some more time off.

Form & Verdict

Sent straight over fences for his handicap debut in November and was an easy winner at Lingfield (2m4f, good to soft); well-beaten third at Market Rasen (2m5f, soft) on Boxing Day but he's had a break since and this very lightly raced 7yo retains potential for his top stable.

Sole chase win at 2m4f in late 2021 (good to soft); had stamina to prove at 3m2f and 3m this season but was still beaten a long way out before pulling up at Exeter in November (first-time cheekpieces, retained); had wind surgery since; return to 2m3f can suit but hard to be confident.

Form & Verdict

Went very close at Newcastle (2m7f, good to soft) in December on third chase start and fair fourth here (3m, soft) in January; on a competitive mark and isn't written off, but he needs to bounce back from a below-par run at Carlisle (2m4f, heavy) a fortnight ago.

Twice runner-up last season but tailed off on recent return at Carlisle (2m4f, in first-time cheekpieces, retained), taking his record over fences to 0-9; stays 3m but will need to leave latest effort behind.

Twice went very close over fences last season, including when last seen at Wetherby (2m3f, good to soft) in March; however, he's now 0-8 in chases and could be vulnerable once more against numerous likely improvers; wears first-time cheekpieces.

Yet to win in eight attempts over fences but he's twice been beaten a nose, including over C&D (good to soft; rallied) in March; reappears in first-time headgear off the same mark; possibilities if ready to roll after seven-month absence.
