All seven wins (five chasing) on good or quicker ground; however, had his conditions when pulled up after a 62-day break at Hereford and now returns from a similar one.

Drying ground is a bonus for one who has gained all seven wins on good or quicker (five over fences at up to 2m5f); ran well enough at Huntingdon two months ago (2m7f, good) to make the shortlist.

Form & Verdict

One-time useful chaser but he has shown little in three runs this term, having a wind op before pulled up in 2m4f Huntingdon handicap 25 days ago; he needs to take a big step forward.

Has tumbled down the weights but he's been very lightly raced in the last two seasons and has struggled; hopes are pinned on his second wind operation prompting a major turnaround from this 10yo.

Form & Verdict

Fairly useful winner at his best; went backwards from his reappearance fourth when a well-held fifth in Fontwell (2m3f) handicap last month but his excellent record at this track makes him a major player.

Second off 10lb higher in last year's Sussex Champion Chase over C&D and seemed to respond quite well to first-time blinkers when filling same position (no match for winner) over 2m1f here last month but ran lackustre race in selling hurdle on Tuesday and has become very hard to predict.

Best known as a chaser these days and reverts to hurdles for the first time since winning a maiden at Plumpton (2m good) in April 2019; on a good mark on the pick of his chase form and stable won this with the top weight last year, incidentally another horse returning from fences.

Form & Verdict

Dual winner here but his run of good form ended when he beat only one in 2m2f Fontwell handicap on Saturday; he's well in the mix if shrugging off that latest effort.

Five-time chase winner but not since November 2020, and has been out of form so far this season; would appeal more on soft/heavy ground and stable has much more obvious chance with Doyannie.

Potentially well handicapped but stuck on a losing run and this season hasn't started well; the return of cheekpieces is probably no bad thing but others appeal more.
