Made all for his second chase success at Leicester (2m, good to soft) 18 days ago; 4lb rise not too punitive and a sounder surface wouldn't be a problem; solid claims.

J: Lorcan Williams

T: Paul Nicholls

Progressive over hurdles last season (various ground) and has shown promise this term on his two chase starts (2m, good), the latest in September; unproven at this trip but there's every chance it'll suit and he could have more to offer over fences for his top yard; could play a leading role.

7 yo Gelding

OR: 133

Form & Verdict
Dual Flat/hurdles winner who belied his market position (20-1 outsider of four) in C&D novice chase last month, taking well to fences at the first attempt; the bare form of that win suggests a 9lb rise is manageable back at handicap level; respected.

Dual Flat/hurdles winner; ridden out to make a winning debut over fences at Leicester (2m, good to soft) but couldn't follow up off his revised mark in a handicap back there; 1lb lower for this but it's a tougher assignment.

J: Harry Bannister

T: Tony Carroll

Fairly useful dual hurdle winner (2m/2m1f) who ran respectably on the Flat (2m, AW) last month; this looks a tough enough assignment on his chase debut and he could be one for another day; his hurdle wins have come on good/good to soft.

Off the mark at the 29th time of asking when landing a C&D event last week; 1lb out of the handicap here, even with his 7lb penalty, and he wouldn't be an obvious one to follow up.
