In good form in points this year (four wins) and didn't run badly when well-held third behind two superior opponents in Chepstow hunter chase (2m7f, good) in April; ought to be very competitive in this grade of handicap.

OUR TIP

Form: 3622U- BF

Last run: 60 days

W: 11st 2lb

5 yo Gelding

OR: 93

Form & Verdict
Low-mileage 5yo who was unlucky not to win a chase at Taunton (2m, soft) in March and will also be suited by today's trip/ground; not always a fluent jumper but was unlucky to come to grief on latest outing two months ago; major player if the first-time cheekpieces have any positive effect.

Maiden; back from a break when looking most unfortunate not to win at Taunton last month (stumbled badly after the final fence); no ground worries and 4lb rise might not prevent a first success; first go at this trip.

Form & Verdict
Won two chases last year (3m/3m2f) and came from a long way off the pace for very respectable third at Warwick (2m4f, good; behind Spiritus Mundi) last month, after a break; Loup De Maulde may be the stable's main hope but this fellow is on a workable mark and warrants consideration.

Disappointing as favourite at Sedgefield when last seen in October but this dual chase winner still looks feasibly treated on his win at Newton Abbot (3m2f, good) in the autumn; takes a big drop back in trip after 231 days off but he's a versatile type and his last success came after an absence; respected for in-form yard.

Improving in 2021 and added to May's Fakenham win (3m, good to soft) with a comfortable Newton Abbot success (3m2f, good) last month, on his return from a break; up another 4lb but unexposed and a big player.
