Form & Verdict

Two chase wins so far this season over this distance on nice ground; hasn't won over hurdles since 2019 but arrives here off a 16lb lower hurdle mark so has to be feared; probably needed the run at Downpatrick and should be sharper now for this; don't discount.

Better chaser than hurdler, last win being in a Cartmel handicap chase in August (2m5f, good to soft); well beaten last twice; could go well but better on faster ground than is forecast.

10yo who makes his first start since last August but he did well for his new yard last year, winning twice (2m4f/2m5f, good/good to soft), and he's also effective on soft; the betting may be informative on his return.

Quite useful stayer for Charlie Appleby earlier in his career (rated 91 at his peak); ran a cracker over C&D last April when second off 7lb higher mark; lost form later in the season but has had a recent spin on AW and could be primed for a big run under Oisin Orr whose patient handling could suit him.
