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.

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.

Back in top form the last twice, winning at Catterick (1m7f, good to soft) then third to Another Crick at Wincanton; possibilities if first-time tongue-tie squeezes out more from him.

Looked in excellent nick when scoring at Catterick (1m7f, good to soft) last month and is now 2-6 as a chaser; moves up in grade today and needs to prove he's fully effective on a right-handed track; claims.

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.

Useful chase and dual hurdle winner at around 2m when trained by Dan Skelton but changed hands for £28,000 after two below-par runs in March and has stamina to prove on today's stable/hunter chase debut.

Well beaten in second at Kempton (2m2f, good) three weeks ago but he bumped into a rejuvenated winner; enjoying a consistent season, including a strong-finishing second at Wetherby (1m7f, soft) two starts ago, and there's every chance he'll be bang there.

Form & Verdict
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.

Could be that he needs further now as it was over 2m5f (good) when off the mark over fences at Newton Abbot last April; even at that trip he's been a disappointing favourite the last twice and now returns from a lengthy break.
