Hasn't built on an encouraging second on stable debut in March (2m4f, soft) and he ran poorly at Haydock (first encounter with good ground) last month; connections now reach for cheekpieces; something to prove.

Chase form has gone pear-shaped since his 2m5f win last spring; failed to revive on the return to hurdles last time; drops back in grade but is badly out of sorts and unproven at this trip.

Form & Verdict

5yo who won on just his second start over fences at Clonmel (2m, soft; 11-4) four weeks ago, never far away and shrugging off a mistake at the last; that was his best effort and it's unlikely he's reached his peak; stable does well with its runners here; one to take seriously.

Chase and dual hurdle winner for Gavin Cromwell in Ireland but left that stable after two disappointing efforts last spring and was pulled up when reappearing for new yard last month; others have much less to prove.

Form & Verdict

Five chase starts since November, winning once (2m4f at Leicester, three ran); didn't seem to fail for stamina at 3m when below par back over hurdles at Newbury three weeks ago; likely to be thereabouts with conditions no problem but others appeal more for the win.

Five chasing starts since November, winning once (at Leicester, three ran); hurdles win off this mark a year ago but was a long way behind Orby's Legend when last seen over hurdles in October; stamina also to prove at 3m.

With a 4lb pull he doesn't have much to find with The Edgar Wallace on Market Rasen running, and his subsequent form includes a C&D success (on fast ground) two runs ago; not dismissed back here.

Form & Verdict

Second in an Irish point; 1-4 over hurdles; took his form to a new level when making a winning chasing debut at Doncaster (2m4f, good to soft; 8-1) last month, jumping well and in command from three out; unexposed and may well follow up.

Fairly useful hurdler/chaser when trained by Dan Skelton; won a point last year and it was a useful hunter chase in which he was beaten only 11l at Taunton recently; may need more here but not dismissed.

Goes particularly well at Carlisle and was off the mark for the season when winning there last time (3m, heavy); finished last of five at this meeting in 2022, but that was over 2m4f and is better over this trip.

0-7 over fences but runner-up on four of those occasions and his reappearance over C&D was pleasing; fared less well at Ayr when tried in cheekpieces and he could go well should he fancy the new visor.

T: Nicky Richards

11yo who is 0-6 over fences but has run some good races in this sphere, most recently runner-up at Carlisle (3m, soft) in November on his reappearance; having travelled well he could benefit from this drop back in distance and he's one to consider in first-time cheekpieces.
