Form & Verdict

Has form figures of 1221 in completed chase starts, the silver medals gained in 2m Grade 2 novice events behind notable rivals Edwardstone and Third Time Lucki; defied top weight in Newcastle handicap back over 2m4f last time, looking better than ever; has the best chance at the weights.

Well held in 2m/2m4f handicaps here earlier in the season before signing off for Lucinda Russell with a narrow defeat of Our Jet at Wetherby (2m3f, soft; closely matched with that rival); his second run since joining this yard was better than the first but he was still beaten 10l at Kempton and this is stronger again.

Form & Verdict

Successful in similar event at Haydock (2m4f) in January; only fourth of five when favourite in same grade at Kempton five weeks ago but actually wasn't disgraced on RPRs; consistent on the whole and has the ability to go well despite 5lb penalty.

Form & Verdict

Ex-French youngster who was impressive in Newbury handicap (2m) on second run for Paul Nicholls; mixed results since but shaped better than the bare form suggests in the Grand Annual at Cheltenham most recently; this return to 2m4f is worth exploring, judged on pedigree; may rate higher yet.

Boasts a solid record in competitive 2m4f handicaps on both courses here and he's back on the same mark off which he went so close in the big December handicap; not at his very best the last twice (behind In Excelsis Deo here last month) but couldn't put a line through him.

Had stamina limitations over 3m recently; has a fine record in competitive 2m4f handicaps on both courses here but he went back up in the weights after his narrow defeat in December (soft; also effective on good to soft) and had no serious say off today's mark in this race last year.

Form & Verdict

Record of 2-4 (in handicaps) since wearing cheekpieces, the wins gained over 2m4f at Kempton on Boxing Day and Leicester last month; has the worst chance on ratings but not by a great deal and he may have more to offer in the retained headgear; not dismissed.

Form & Verdict

Successful in two novice events during the winter, then found life harder in the Ultima at Cheltenham where he was beaten when blundering two out (soon pulled up); seems a tad more exposed than these rivals, with a chase record of 2-10, and has 3lb penalty.

Prominent racer who could show up well for a long way if taking to these fences and it's probably a mere coincidence that he's yet to win a chase with more than six runners; 3lb below his last winning mark, he's no forlorn hope.

Prominent-racer who scored at Market Rasen (2m5f, good to soft) on reappearance but has failed to repeat the form, well held at Wincanton (2m4f) on latest start; back down to his last winning mark but needs to bounce back and there's a doubt about his effectiveness over this shorter trip.
