Form & Verdict

Very useful novice chaser in 2020-21 season and bounced back from very disappointing hunter chase debut when winning easily at Ludlow (2m4f, good) in March; slightly disappointing when only fourth at Cheltenham (2m4f, good) last month but this race is less competitive; major player if stamina holds out over new trip.

Won two good-ground hunter chases in 2022 (2m4f/3m); not at his best after a long break and a wind operation at Southwell last time, but should come on for the run; has won on soft and heavy; one with a chance.

Form & Verdict

Very useful in his prime and proved he retains a significant chunk of ability when winning Class 3 handicap at Musselburgh (2m6f, good) in February; left Charlie Longsdon after two disappointing efforts, though, and it's hard to predict what sort of mood he'll be in on today's hunter chase debut.

Ended a long losing run in veterans' race at Musselburgh (2m6f, good; Psychedelic Rock and Valadom behind) in February but he ran poorly here next time and needs to bounce back; others are more solid.

Form & Verdict

Dual hunter chase winner this year (2m5f/2m4f); was fortunate on latter occasion (clear leader fell two out) and finished a long way behind Stratagem when below form at Cheltenham last month, but can have a say if back on song here; stamina for today's trip not copper-bottomed, though.

Form & Verdict

Seemingly in process of running big race before falling in Musselburgh hunter chase in March and has since won two small-field points but was disappointing favourite in a recent match race a Charm Park and others in this line-up look a fair bit stronger.
