Front-runner lately and he rediscovered some form on good ground at Huntingdon (2m4f/3m1f) in November; absent four months before a lesser show at Chepstow (2m3f) three weeks ago; it's possible he could come on from that run but today's race is probably too hot for this longstanding maiden.

Rallied well to win off today's mark here (2m2f, good; also has form on heavy) for Nigel Hawke just under a year ago and was close second over hurdles here (3m, good) on seasonal/stable debut in November; not quite in same form in two subsequent chases but might be boosted by the addition of cheekpieces today.

Seems to reserve his best for this track, with figures of 4212; the win was over 2m2f but stamina didn't look an issue when close second over hurdles two starts ago (3m); fair third at Wincanton latest and seriously considered, despite a big weight.

Went close on last hurdle start at Southwell (2m4f, good) last March and was also a good second over fences at Fontwell (2m5f, good) in November; jumped badly when pulled up over fences on Boxing Day and could have a big say now back over hurdles; the cheekpieces adopted last time are retained.
