Form & Verdict
Winning debut over fences last October and has run consistently since; seems to stay this trip and good ground ideal but that initial chasing success is his only win in the last four years; blinkers (unplaced in three previous attempts in them) replace cheekpieces.

Won chase debut at Worcester (2m, soft) in October and has held his form pretty well in defeat since; that's a notable positive in this field but the worst of that form was his sole attempt this season at 2m4f and the trip is a concern.

Form & Verdict
Revitalised on good ground this spring and completed a hat-trick when winning at Exeter six days ago; may have been a shade fortunate there but the going was probably slower than described; 7lb penalty and Philip Armson's claim now only 5lb but still hard to ignore.

Last of three finishers at Ludlow (2m4f, good to soft) this month but certainly didn't run badly there, and can do better if he cuts out the jumping errors here; now 2lb lower than when winning on handicap hurdle debut last spring; engaged 3.00 Uttoxeter Tuesday; big player if he turns up here.

Point and two-time hurdle winner; third in all four runs over fences and was never able to lay a glove on Karl Philippe last time at Ludlow; not sure why he should be reversing those placings.
