Form & Verdict

All three chasing wins gained at Stratford in the summer of 2019; it's been rather a struggle over fences since but would have gone close, at least, but for falling at Fakenham last month; likely player if unaffected by that tumble, as this mark is definitely not beyond him.

Five-time chase winner (mostly on good ground); needs to bounce back from a below-par run last month and will not be favoured by the forecast rain but was placed on consecutive starts this summer and is suited by this track.

Hasn't set the world alight in hunter chases this spring but managed a win at Fontwell last month (first time in blinkers) although he wasn't overly impressive; good ground suits but this will take a deal more.

Didn't run to his best on latest start at Haydock in April but two of his three chasing wins (all last summer/autumn) were gained over C&D; good or quicker ground ideal and no surprise to see him go close.

Hasn't won since September 2019 but put up a bold show at Newbury 18 days ago, only giving best at the final fence; tongue-strap, missing on latest four starts, returns and that ought to help (all wins when wearing one).

Form & Verdict

Two wins in March and, having been out of his depth in major handicaps, has strung together a sequence of three seconds, all last month; still 5lb above his latest winning mark so bit more needed to win; can lead.

Won in France in October on second start back from an absence and he's on a competitive mark on British form as recent as last May; however, this 11yo was pulled up in France last month and others are more compelling.

Front-runner; two wins last September (2m4f, including off this mark) but ended the autumn on a low note; not at his best on last month's return but may step up on that; has won at this trip but 2m4f might be better.

Better known as a chaser now and was outpaced at the business end when fourth of five over hurdles at Fontwell (2m3f, good to firm) in May; however, he went close off a higher mark over C&D last summer and won't mind what the weather does; might be the answer.
