Has a fine record over fences, winning eight of his 15 races; not at his best this season but has been running in much stronger races; well handicapped and has possibilities now down in grade but testing ground is a concern (has won on soft).

Very productive in 2021 and 2022, winning numerous times, but lost his form badly (over hurdles/fences) in 2023; big revival is required.

J: Theo Gillard

Has won eight of his 13 chase starts and ran creditably for a long way in last season's Grand National, before fading; he may have needed his reappearance over hurdles at Cheltenham four weeks ago and has won off this mark in the past; not ruled out.

Took advantage of a good mark at Fontwell (2m2f, good) in October and had become well treated again when landing a much less competitive race than this at Hereford (2m, good to soft) in January; has the triple whammy of a better race, slower ground and a weights rise to contend with; 7lb claimer is called up.

Return to similar trips to today's has helped and he took advantage of a good mark at Fontwell in October before close up in better races than this at Cheltenham (2m; good and good to soft); lesser run after but had stiffish task on soft at Newbury latest and now below latest winning mark; claims.

Losing sequence goes back 14 races to early 2021 but he has run well this season and some late idling cost him the race over 3m at Carlisle last time (heavy); finished third in this two years ago when 3lb higher; solid chance.

Went close here (2m4f, heavy) last March and kicked off this campaign with two good second-place finishes at Ayr (3m, soft/heavy); not at the top of his game at Newcastle the last twice and his losing sequence goes back 13 races to March 2021, but he's capable of having a say if bouncing back to form.
