Form & Verdict

In excellent form in 2021, winning five of his last eight races over fences, including over C&D on good ground; made all from two rivals at Doncaster when last seen in November; his mark has shot up, and he now has a five-month absence to overcome, but he's impossible to discount.

Has been running right up to his best form this summer and came home 4l to the good at Stratford last time (2m1f, good) when Mercian Prince weakened right out of it; a 3lb rise could have been worse.

Looked as good as ever when winning readily by over 6l at Southwell (2m, good) in May and then went close at Uttoxeter; should get a nice lead from Mercian Prince and won't be far away.

Form & Verdict

Steadily progressive over fences, winning twice and putting up his best effort when a rallying second of six at Kelso (2m1f, soft) last month; just as effective on a sound surface and unlikely to be far away.

Went off only 12-1 when pulled up over fences in the Grand Annual last time; had a decent spell over hurdles at the start of last year when competitive off this sort of mark; 2m might be his best trip but certainly not dismissed lightly.

Had a decent spell over hurdles at the start of last year and returned to fences to finish a creditable third on his 2m Sandown reappearance (soft) four weeks ago, keeping on well from the rear; the cheekpieces he wore at the end of last season are refitted; not discounted.

Below form in the Imperial Cup here last March on his only start on heavy; had won over 2m here (soft) last January and was runner-up elsewhere twice last spring, all over hurdles but he was pretty useful over fences too the season before; not seen since April but has to be given a close look.

Form & Verdict

Rattled off four quick hurdles wins last spring; 0-3 over fences but he did well to split the top-class Edwardstone and the useful For Pleasure in a novice at Warwick (2m, good to soft) in November; best forgiven a poor effort in the County Hurdle at Cheltenham last month; still low mileage, goes well on good ground and may get back on track in this small field.

T: Anthony Charlton

Useful jumper who won 2m handicap chases at Worcester and Newton Abbot last summer; well beaten in an AW Flat handicap at the start of 2023 but he was quite useful in this sphere at the start of his career, including an AW novice win; possible he'll be using this a prep for a return to jumps but betting perhaps the best guide to expectations.

10st 11lb

J: Harry Reed

T: Milton Harris

Took a while to open his account over fences but has bagged two four-runner chases this summer, latterly over C&D (good) 11 days ago despite almost refusing to race and giving the others a big headstart; not without risk, but a 1lb rise ought to be manageable if he gets away on terms today.
