Was running well over hurdles before returning to fences the last twice and he won narrowly at Doncaster (2m3f, soft) before finishing second at Haydock; same mark as last time and he could be the safest option.

In good form over hurdles last month and won when back over fences at Doncaster (2m3f, soft) last time, which was his second chase start; beat just three rivals but he's gone up only 2lb and is unexposed in this sphere.

Pulled up last January on sole chase start so something to prove over fences; however, he's in better form now having been placed over hurdles the last twice (over 2m3f on soft ground here most recently), and he'll be a player if taking to fences at the second attempt.

Lacks recent match practice (absent for nine months) and has something to prove in this scenario having gained both wins over 2m on good ground at Ludlow; not the percentage call.

Both wins at Ludlow but has shown form elsewhere; only 4lb higher than for authoritative win in May and strong claims on that; slight concern that he hasn't been seen since but still plenty to like.

Improved to make winning handicap debut over C&D (good) just under a year ago and returned from 11-month absence with encouraging third at Bangor three weeks ago; leading contender if that outing has brought him on.

Respectable third in mares' event over C&D (heavy) two weeks ago; however, she's not particularly well treated and going back against males isn't ideal, having gained all wins against her own sex.

Easily made all at Ffos Las (2m, heavy) on February 1; tailed off at Fontwell (2m1f, heavy) last Wednesday when taking on males and something to prove after that, but she's back against mares here and not ruled out.
