Better round of jumping than Law Of Gold when just denying him in this under George Hiscock in 2022 (good); current wellbeing underlined by a win (3m4f) and second in two soft-ground Cothelstone opens of late.

Festival regular having made the frame in the Ultima, a Kim Muir and three editions of this race (beaten 3l by Premier Magic 12 months ago); warmed up for another crack with his sixth point win 12 days ago; however, now a 14yo, his chance of getting his hands on the treasured trophy has surely passed.

A teenager now but was excellent third at Cheltenham Festival (3m2f, soft) in March and won by 18l in lesser company at Exeter (3m, good to soft) the following month; might ideally prefer a stiffer stamina test than this but, nevertheless, he's a major player.

Both chase wins have come at Exeter, last time his stamina winning the day in the 3m6f Devon National (soft); finished nowhere in this last season but he was second to Truckers Lodge the year before (albeit a remote one) and he's entitled to give his running once more; perhaps placed at best.
