Didn't look entirely convincing in early efforts over fences but came good at Leicester in February (three ran); only 1lb higher and could take a leap forward now that he's shown that he can win a chase.

Three hurdle wins but didn't set the world alight in chases last summer/autumn, despite being placed three times; this first attempt beyond 2m4f, on return from four months off, needs to bring out improvement.

14yo who is on a 14-racing losing run and was soundly beaten at Chepstow last month; however, he may improve for that first outing since June and he's on a handy mark judged on some fair efforts in the first half of this year; not ruled out each-way.

1-7 over hurdles, the win coming in a small-field novice at Newcastle in March; no impact in two handicap runs and although he ran creditably at Fakenham last month, he could prove vulnerable once more; accessories added now upped in distance.

Lord Of Cheshire

J: Sam Twiston-Davies

T: Nigel Twiston-Davies

Hooded until this season; it was never in much doubt when defying a long absence with ease at Warwick (2m3f, soft) and he overraced a little when vulnerable in the finish at Haydock (heavy); raised another 3lb and goes without James Turner's 8lb claim, so looks to have more on his plate; races prominently.

Quirky customer who tends to idle when in front and had almost stopped to a walk before holding on to win three-runner chase at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good) last month; remains on a workable mark, though, and can make his presence felt; has had wind surgery since last time.
