Twice ran well in chases on the New course here last season, latterly when second of five in April (3m1f, good); looked laboured and was struggling from fairly early stage in a novice hurdle last month but current mark is workable if he's back on song in new headgear (usually wears cheekpieces).

Running well when last seen in the spring of 2022, finishing fifth in the Kim Muir (soft) and close up in another Cheltenham handicap next time (good); potentially well treated for this belated return to action after leaving Jennie Candlish; market confidence would heighten interest.

Useful novice hurdler in 2020-21; beaten in his first four chases but behind smart opposition, and he made the most of a good opportunity to score comfortably from sole rival in novice at Catterick (3m1f, good to soft; 8-13) in March; concedes weight all round but should go well.

Generally disappointing since beating two rivals on chasing debut in November 2021, and comes here after 53l defeat in Bangor marathon last month; needs to turn a corner.

Generally disappointing since beating two rivals on chasing debut in November 2021 but was still in contention when falling in home straight at Exeter (3m6f, good to soft) in December and remains well handicapped on older form; not ruled out.

Made a winning chase debut here (3m, good) last November but that was in a three-runner race but he's been generally very disappointing since; mark is tumbling but was tailed off at Cheltenham on his recent return and has plenty to prove on this step back up in trip.

Went up the weights having won three times this season and he's fallen on two of his last three runs; however, he proved well suited by this C&D when winning in November and can give a good account granted a clear round.

Having a productive first season over fences, successful four times from 2m5f to 3m3f; his progress seems to have flattened out but he still ran creditably when 12l third of ten at Market Rasen on Boxing Day; respected after two months off.
