Pulled up at Haydock in December but may have needed that first run since last May; won 4m hunter chase at Cheltenham last April so has the credentials to run well today and is not ruled out; versatile ground-wise.

Won 4m hunter at Cheltenham in the spring, and a poor effort on most recent outing in May is probably best forgiven (came just nine days after previous run); goes well in the mud and returns to handicaps off a much reduced mark; interesting contender after break under optimum conditions.

Had some big days in his time with Colin Tizzard but there have been more modest shows than good in the last three seasons; given wind operation (his second) since showing very little in the Ladbrokes Trophy in November and has also changed trainer (not owner); thrown in on form as recent as February 2021 but it's now hard to be confident about him.

Lost his way after winning Grade 3 handicap at Warwick (3m5f, soft) in January 2021; took step back in right direction when second of four in refitted cheekpieces at Sandown (3m, good to soft) last month but it's hard to tell whether the headgear will continue to have a positive effect.

Now lower in the weights than when winning the Classic Chase at Warwick (3m5f, soft) last winter, but he hasn't looked the same horse this season, soundly beaten in his follow-up bid last time; this represents a drop in grade but he needs to turn a corner; cheekpieces replace a visor.

Appealingly handicapped on some of his old form for Colin Tizzard, including round here (3m2f; unproven over further); ran a positive first race for this yard over hurdles in December and when back over fences next time he was pulled up early with slipping tack; latest hurdle run wasn't up to much but winners of this have returned to form from nowhere.

Rejuvenated 10yo who made it three wins for the year (2m3f/2m7f, soft/heavy) under Lucy Turner when beating his two rivals at Huntingdon 11 days ago; however, he's on a career-high mark under a 5lb penalty and could be vulnerable in this much hotter race.

Back to chasing for two seconds and two 13l wins from his four starts this season, all under Lucy Turner over about 2m4f; acts on heavy; he too has a major question to answer, though, as he underperformed when tried at 2m7f and 3m2f last spring.

First four chase starts over 3m-3m2f at Cheltenham, appearing to run very well on first attempt until he crashed into the rails on run-in; took a backward step on the fourth of those outings and also below form when he wore cheekpieces (retained today) behind Le Milos at Sandown on latest start; competitive if he's back firing on all cylinders.

All four chase starts over 3m-3m2f at Cheltenham, appearing to run very well on first attempt until he crashed into the rails on run-in; took a backward step on latest outing and now wears headgear first time; youngster who should have more to give but others are preferred this time.
