Dual good-ground staying chase scorer this time two years ago, including off 6lb higher; hasn't finished off his last few races strongly, however, and over 30l behind Amalfi Skyline at Hereford last time.

He wasn't running badly towards the end of last year and continues to edge down the weights; however, it's been a while since this 10yo has posed a serious threat and he needs something extra today.

Gained both wins in April 2022; struggles with consistency and after giving it a good go he faded into a 15l third over 3m1f here last time; long time since he raced over this sharp a distance.

Triple hurdles winner who has been largely consistent over fences, albeit was quite a well-held third on last three occasions; still has each-way hopes, and chance improves if the added cheekpieces work well.

Hat-trick in September (all under Toby Wynne) and may have been feeling his exertions when well beaten soon after; still on a viable mark and stays well so hard to dismiss on return from a short break.

Not at his best in latest three starts (two in chases); repeat of his narrow defeat over hurdles in March 2021 would give him strong claims but certainly no guarantee of that; often attracts support.

Went close on last hurdle start at Southwell (2m4f, good) last March and was also a good second over fences at Fontwell (2m5f, good) in November; jumped badly when pulled up over fences on Boxing Day and could have a big say now back over hurdles; the cheekpieces adopted last time are retained.
