Form & Verdict

Didn't hang around over hurdles and he made a winning chase debut when scoring cosily at Musselburgh last month (2m4f, soft); bad error two out cost him dear next time, losing ground before rattling home to miss out by a nose; 6lb higher today but unlikely he has reached his ceiling.

Prolific over hurdles and fences in 2022 and he's tumbled down the weights; market check advised with Harry Cobden booked on first outing since last August, but he struggled last year and returns with lots to prove.

Both chase wins have come around Catterick, latterly off 4lb lower in December; lost a shoe when only third at Newbury four weeks ago (2m, soft); should go well back in these calmer waters.

J: Charlie Todd

T: Sam Allwood

Without a win since 2021 but has made the frame on all four starts this season, most notably when second at Sedgefield (2m3f, soft) two runs ago; continues to slip down the weights and has possibilities if the first-time cheekpieces give him a boost.

J: Toby Wynne

Four wins divided between hurdles and fences; has raced mostly at about 2m but seemed to stay Sedgefield's extended 2m3f (soft) when runner-up three weeks ago; drops into a Class 5 here and must have a chance.

Form & Verdict

Giant strides since switched to handicap chases, readily winning at Plumpton in January (2m1f, good) and even more impressive back there three weeks ago; another 10lb higher today but his slick jumping should remain a big asset; leading contender.

Failed to complete in two Irish points but there was promise in one of his hurdle runs and he improved for fences to win well over C&D (good) four weeks ago, coming home nearly 10l to the good; up 7lb but hard knowing how good he could be.

Off the mark over fences when landing C&D handicap in November; signs the handicapper has the upper hand since but getting back on a sound surface will help.

Back to form with a couple of seconds and he was clear at one point under a positive ride last time at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good; same mark); interesting to see if similar tactics are employed here as he could be tough to reel in.

Was returning from 252 days off when a remote third behind Minella Hub at Plumpton three weeks ago; will need to have derived significant benefit from the run to reverse the placings.
