Made all at Lingfield (2m3f, good to soft) in November on his second start back from an absence; respectable fifth at Hereford (2m3f) next time and stamina stretched over 3m at Musselburgh latest; quickly back on that winning mark.

Triple chase winner for Colin Tizzard; pulled up on consecutive starts for that stable in October but may have been refreshed by combination of five-month break and switch to new stable; suited by good/good to firm ground; market may guide.

Drew clear on the run-in and was all set to post new personal-best performance before losing jockey in closing stages at Worcester (2m7f, good; saddle slipped) last month but needs to bounce back from lacklustre run 17 days ago and others look better handicapped anyway.

Front-runner who has collected three wins this season, most recently when bolting up at Wincanton (3m1f, good to firm) in October; an 8lb rise means he now runs off a career-high mark, but he's evidently in excellent nick.

Six-time chase winner on good ground, most recently at Worcester (2m7f) last June; not seen since a lesser effort last July but has a pretty good record when fresh and is fine on a right-handed track.
