9st 0lb

J: Donagh O’Connor

T: J F Levins

Four-time winner under all codes but he's pulled up in his last two hurdles and current wellbeing is an issue.

J: Kielan Woods

T: Ben Pauling

Inconsistent over hurdles since his Grade 2 novice success in January 2021 but won readily by 13l on last month's chasing debut at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good to soft), despite jumping to his right throughout, and today's switch back to a clockwise track looks the right move.

J: Kielan Woods

T: Ben Pauling

Grade 2-winning hurdler over 3m; that's perhaps more his trip and after making the running he was readily brushed aside by the front two in a 2m4f handicap hurdle at Sandown (heavy); goes chasing as a lightly raced 8yo but may get outpaced when it matters; 2lb wrong.

Lightly raced and inconsistent since his Grade 2 novice win at Doncaster (3m, soft) in January 2021 and he was pulled up at Cheltenham and Aintree on his final two starts last season; however, he twice showed spark here last season (including on reappearance) and is not ruled out off a reduced mark.

Returned from a long absence earlier this year and struggled initially, but he capitalised on a reduced mark at Fontwell (2m3f, good) last month when back from a break and on his old form he remains well treated back up 6lb; has won on soft and he's respected.

Well beaten in two of three starts for this yard but not beaten far in the other, when fourth at Ffos Las in January; hasn't won since December 2019 but has often faced tough tasks; facing a few questions but not impossible off this mark; can make the running.

His last win was in a Grade 2 event but that was over 1m7f in December 2019 and he's struggled in two of his three runs for current yard, including at Sandown (2m4f, soft) last time; on much-reduced mark but he comes with risks attached.
