Not seen since pulled up on consecutive outings in the autumn and probably doesn't have much margin for error off current mark but won the last two editions of this race (both times on good ground) and will presumably be primed for a big run.

Won the Kim Muir here in 2022 (3m2f, soft); well into the golden years now but he followed an excellent second over C&D (soft) with a barnstorming win over the big Aintree fences (3m2f, heavy) in December; lesser efforts since, though, and on a high mark now.

Ridden last two years by Lucy Turner; won at the 2022 Cheltenham Festival and, after a patchy campaign last term, never better than first two starts this season, latterly when winning by 13l over the big Aintree fences (3m2f, heavy); first race beyond that was the Welsh National, just 18 days later which might help to explain his modest show but he also made mistakes early on final circuit; 7lb higher than at Aintree and needs another career best.

Front-runner who had two wins here in 2020 but has not fared nearly so well here since; well handicapped judged on three runs in January-April 2022 but not so hot in three runs late last year and has not been seen since; despite recent wins for the yard, which won this race in November last year, his first-time-out record is a big worry.

Won this race in 2022 and lost out only by a neck when second in it last year; left disappointing seasonal debut behind when placed in big field at Cheltenham (3m1f, soft) in November and can be forgiven his non-completion in gruelling race the following month; given 12-week break to recover from that and is likely to be primed for another big run in this contest.

2lb out of the handicap and he's inconsistent; however, he returned to form with a good third of 16 at Cheltenham (3m1f, soft) three weeks ago and his trainer knows what it takes in this race, having won it a record six times; no surprise if this 7yo is in the mix on his Aintree debut.
