Form & Verdict

Rallied well for second at Chepstow (2m3f, heavy) in January and was respectable fourth in good-ground C&D event won by Keltus three weeks ago; continues to slip down the weights but is not one to rely upon heavily nowadays.

Stayed on for very respectable sixth in 2023 Veterans' Final at its regular home of Sandown (3m, soft) 13 months ago and returns on a 7lb lower mark; versatile regarding ground; not out of this if fully tuned up.

Won sole start here (over hurdles in 2018); never better than when second at Cheltenham (same mark today) in November, which was over 2m4f but he had three wins over about 3m last spring; 3m2f may have been asking a bit much on latest outing; while peak RPRs have been on good ground but he's had his share of wins on soft and heavy.

Form & Verdict

Dual hunter chase winner last spring (once over C&D) and bounced back to form when prevailing in three-way finish to C&D handicap (good) three weeks ago; this 12yo is not sure to be in the same mood again but a 3lb rise ought to be manageable.

Had a slice of luck for two hunter chase wins last spring (C&D/2m5f; both on good); better for the run in his two most recent handicaps, including at Warwick last month after 240 days off, and it's hard to know how well treated he is at this level.

Form & Verdict

4-15 over fences, the latest win gained by wide maiden at Exeter (3m, good; first-time cheekpieces) in October; has become very inconsistent but didn't run anything like as badly as eventual 52l defeat might suggest at Chepstow (3m6f, good) last month and today's drop back in trip looks the right move.

Form & Verdict

Won gamely off reduced mark over C&D (good) in December but form has nosedived since; tailed off when reverting to hurdling in first-time cheekpieces (retained) here 11 days ago and it's hard to tell whether he'll warm to the task today.

Had more bad days than good ones since winning over C&D in December 2021 and he didn't jump well enough to land any sort of blow back here 16 days ago (second run in blinkers); not easily recommended with any degree of confidence.

C&D winner who reappeared with encouraging second at Chepstow (2m7f) in October and he bumped into a highly progressive winner when a fair third here (2m4f) in November; might not be far away now back up in trip but he's won just one of his 14 chase starts, which tempers enthusiasm.
