Form & Verdict
Regressive veteran who hasn't won since 2017; proved he retains a modicum of ability when second off lowly mark at Huntingdon (2m7f, good) in the autumn but was pulled up this month, after a break, and needs to have taken significant benefit from that outing; blinkers the headgear of choice today.

Three-time chase winner; not very consistent but ran big race when clear second at Stratford (2m6f, good) in the autumn and made satisfactory return from six-month break a fortnight ago; might be the answer.

Form & Verdict
Fairly useful in his prime but has looked out of sorts since returning from a break in the autumn; still in contention but under pressure before coming to grief at third-last fence at Plumpton (2m3f) last month; back up in trip here; others have much less to prove.

Scored off today's mark over 3m5f here (soft) in January and was very respectable fourth in Norfolk National over that trip (good; refitted blinkers) this month; today's drop back to 3m is probably not ideal but she's sure to appreciate the dip back into Class 5 company; respected.
