Form & Verdict

Generally disappointing since winning Grade 1 novice chase here in 2019 but blinkers have helped to stop the rot this year, and he capitalised upon a drop in grade when comfortably winning Class 3 handicap over C&D (good) last month; contender if revival gathers further momentum.

Not quite the force of old, and two 2m2f wins here last spring came in relatively uncompetitive races; still had plenty to do when falling three out in the Paddy Power at Cheltenham (66-1) in November; this is weaker but one or two others still appeal a bit more.

Unlucky in this race in 2019 (looked a serious threat when falling two out) but ran poorly the following year; regained the winning thread with a Kempton double (2m2f) this spring; however, both subsequent efforts don't suggest he's going to make it third-time lucky in the Paddy Power.

Smart hurdler/chaser at around 2m in his prime; seemingly a force in decline now but looked stretched by 2m4f when about 19l fifth here in March and might get closer to the target over today's trip; cheekpieces (worn once in 2020) given another go.

All seven career wins at up to 2m1f and he cut out quickly at the business end of a 3m veterans' chase at Ascot a month ago on his return from a long absence; did move well enough for long enough to believe he retains plenty of his old ability, on which he's well handicapped.

Multiple winner who has been absent since good second at Kempton (2m2f, good) in May 2022, when 5lb higher; in top hands and Ascot has brought out the best in him in the past (at up to 2m3f), but it's a hefty layoff to defy and he's very much going into the unknown in terms of stamina.

Back in prime form when winning easily at Carlisle (2m, good to soft) last month, and his subsequent fourth in a good race at Ayr (2m, good) was perfectly respectable; claims on that evidence but needs to prove he can handle this track (pulled up in this race last year on only previous visit).

Ex-Irish 9yo who built upon an encouraging stable debut when easily winning four-runner Ludlow handicap (2m, good to soft) in December; it's not easy to gauge what that form is worth but his Grade 2 defeat here three weeks later can be overlooked; returns from four-month break today.

Very progressive 8yo who won six chases last season, the latest an eventful three-runner contest at Southwell (2m, good) four weeks ago; that form is dubious, though, and others in this line-up are more persuasive.
