Form & Verdict

Finished fifth in the Grand Annual just over a year ago and it was good to see him get his head back in front at Fakenham (3m, good to soft), for all that he was entitled to win; gets weight off Stratagem and should be very competitive.

J: Miss Heidi Palin

T: Dan Skelton

Successful in small fields in four of his nine hunter chases, the wins on good and good to soft; ran respectably when seventh in the Aintree Foxhunters' (2m5f) three weeks ago and had useful form at this track at earlier stages of his career; should be on the premises.

Successful in half of his eight hunter chase attempts; beaten by I K Brunel at Taunton last month but may reverse those places with Jack Andrews taking over from a novice rider; stable also runs Bennys King.

12st 0lb

J: Mr Jack Andrews

T: Dan Skelton

Good handicapper who wasn't beaten far in the Grand Annual here in 2021; has accrued plenty of hunter chase experience but he couldn't hold a candle to Vaucelet at Stratford last May and has others to worry about.

Form & Verdict

Lightly raced 6yo who showed some useful form as a novice chaser last season; ran poorly on his hunter chase debut in January but he showed plenty of zest in winning as he liked at Ludlow (2m4f, good) last Wednesday and he's probably the one to beat.

Won two good-ground hunter chases in 2022 (2m4f/3m); not at his best after a long break and a wind operation at Southwell last time, but should come on for the run; has won on soft and heavy; one with a chance.
