Form & Verdict

Fast-improving 7yo who easily won handicaps here on his last two starts (3m2f, heavy/2m7f, good to soft); should be fine on today's quicker ground and could be very difficult to beat now back in a hunter chase.

Won four in a row (including this race) and quickly developed into a useful chaser during purple patch in 2022; was not firing on all cylinders last summer and fell at first fence when reappearing in a point in January but still has possibilities at this level.

Landed a four-timer in February-June last year but hasn't fired in the same way since; down the weights when twice runner-up this May/June before a heavy defeat over C&D on latest start; cheekpieces (worn on last four starts) are removed; 9lb out of the handicap.

In good form in points this season, most recently when making all to win good-ground conditions race at Mollington (2m4f) a fortnight ago; likely to give another very good account on today's hunter chase debut.

Kept on well to beat Caryto Des Brosses in this race last year, despite jumping badly right throughout, and was 11l too good for same rival in Garthorpe point (3m, soft) in February; beaten odds-on favourite in latest point but went down fighting behind a useful rival; good chance.

Taken his point form to a new level this season; can jump to the right but he was only 11-2 when unseating at the seventh fence in the big hunter chase at Aintree's National meeting; expect a positive ride dropped to this trip and he's a big player.
