J: Harry Cobden

Jumping issues saw chase career aborted after just two attempts last season; steadied the ship with good runs in strong handicap hurdles here (2m3f, good to soft) and at Sandown (2m4f, soft) since and connections evidently keen to give fences another go; this mark is no gift but hard to rule out.

J: Freddie Gingell

T: Paul Nicholls

With chasing career soon aborted he returned to hurdling with a good third at Ascot (2m3f, good to soft); Freddie Gingell rides again and, if deducting his 7lb claim, this 6yo is 1lb lower than when a 5l winner of this 12 months ago; bold defence looks on the cards if okay on the ground as, while he won on heavy in France, his peak British form is on good or good to soft.

Dual Grade 2 hurdle winner in his prime and still performing at a pretty high level, most recently when keeping on stoutly from an unpromising position to lead on run-in at Hereford (2m3f, good) three weeks ago; that form is treated with a degree of caution but he's only 1lb higher here and looks well worth another crack at a staying trip.

Steadied the ship after three poor runs with his comfortable win at Wincanton in February (2m5f) and there was nothing wrong with his 4l fourth at Cheltenham (3m; again on good) latest; those runs came after breaks of 54 and 60 days respectively, suggesting he might be best caught fresh; could have done without the rain on Thursday.

Three chasing wins last year, the latest gained off this mark here in September (first time in cheekpieces); no show back hurdling at Sandown last month but may have needed that and return of the headgear can help; will obviously need better but not out of it and good ground ideal.

His second fall from three attempts over fences came on latest start, so he's back over hurdles; had found some improvement on heavy/soft earlier this term and could easily have more to offer for the champion trainer, but good ground would give him much more to prove.
