Having a productive first season over fences, successful four times from 2m5f to 3m3f; his progress seems to have flattened out but he still ran creditably when 12l third of ten at Market Rasen on Boxing Day; respected after two months off.

Form & Verdict

His jumping lacked fluency at Market Rasen (3m, good to soft) last month but he still came out on top to make it two wins in a row, and this lightly raced 6yo shaped as though today's extra yardage would prompt further improvement; also effective on good ground and won here over hurdles.

Dour stayer who loves the mud; five chase wins include one here; reliable in these valuable staying chases without ever looking particularly well handicapped, and he was beaten 24l into fourth in this last year when 3lb lower; having another solid season but hard to believe he's any better now than 12 months ago; first-time tongue-tie.

Goes well on soft/heavy; his three chase wins have been at up to 3m2f and his well-held fourth in last season's Classic Chase (favourite) and Midlands National (4m2f, soft) both saw a dip in his form; there can't be much doubt that he'll stay, though, given the way he kept on strongly for third to Malina Girl over the extended 3m3f at Cheltenham on latest start; needs to improve but he's a strong each-way candidate.

Goes well on soft/heavy; won twice last season and resumed with a win at Carlisle (up 7lb since) one month ago, all at 3m to nearly 3m2f; fourth in last season's Classic Chase (3m5f, heavy) and Midlands National (4m2f, soft) both saw a dip in his form but this progressive 7yo will surely prove his stamina in due course and needs plenty of respect.

Form & Verdict

Steadily progressive over hurdles this term and he took a big step forward when winning on his chase debut at Carlisle (2m4f, soft) last month; followed up at Haydock (3m4f, good) yesterday and this progressive 6yo would have to be respected under a penalty if running again today.

Useful chaser at his best but has regressed this season; safely held when reverted to hurdling for two starts in January and needs subsequent wind op to have made a difference.

Beaten a neck over fences here (3m, good) one year ago off 14lb higher, but not so hot since; the return to hurdles last time (3m1f, soft) did not get a sufficient response for him to be greatly fancied at the moment.
