Form & Verdict

Heavy-ground bumper winner who showed improved form in first-time cheekpieces (retained) when winning on handicap debut at Doncaster (2m3f, soft) this month; up 6lb but this unexposed 6yo was clear with a progressive runner-up and could have more to offer; has shown promise on good to soft.

Reportedly lost his action when pulled up over hurdles last time but didn't enter that race in much form; also below his best when the last to complete in September on his only chase start; has a bit to prove.

11st 4lb

J: James Turner

T: Nigel Twiston-Davies

Not at his best the last twice but the first occasion was his chase debut, and when back over hurdles at Cheltenham last time he was hampered early which proved costly given he usually makes the running; made all at Uttoxeter (2m7f, good) in July and he's fine on slow ground; could make bold bid.

Form & Verdict

Mixed form (on good and good to soft ground) since winning a novice hurdle at Southwell (2m4f, soft) last February; his claims are hardly solid but there were signs of spark at Taunton (2m3f, good) two starts ago and he's not ruled out off a reduced mark.

Started off for David Pipe with two emphatic chase wins in the mud last winter but there have been three backward steps since, the last two over hurdles in November after wind surgery; unraced beyond 3m1f; form chance if he could surge back to last season's best.

Form & Verdict

Won here (2m3f, soft) on Boxing Day and good second at Chepstow (2m3f, heavy) next time; he was wayward at Fontwell 12 days ago and the first-time cheekpieces could be a positive, but he now comes with risks attached and he wasn't at his best at Sandown (2m4f, good to soft) two starts ago.
