Enjoying life in hunter chases and was keeping on again late when a fine fourth at the Festival; respected, if he can be forgiven a lesser effort behind Master Templar and Young Buck in a Cotley point 19 days ago.

Has done well since switched to hunter chases for his new yard but his Warwick win (3m, soft) came at the expense of a frustrating horse who looked in command only to stop to nothing on the run-in; heavy ground was no good to this 11yo last time when behind Quintin's Man; placed at best if he's lucky.

2-3 in points for new stable this month, the latter win gained in five-runner conditions race (good to firm); did that easily and is evidently in good heart, but faces much tougher opposition on this return to racing under rules.

Form & Verdict

Has mixed hurdling and chasing throughout his career; couldn't pose a serious threat in 2m7f hurdle handicap here last month but he was an easy winner over fences at Uttoxeter (3m, good) on his penultimate run; still looks well handicapped on that form and he's respected back in this sphere.

Significant in today's context that last month's emphatic stable/pointing debut success (good) was recorded around Higham's sharp, flat left-handed circuit; theoretical possibility of the bounce factor given the preceding 587-day absence, but relative youth on his side and won't mind a dryout.

Form & Verdict

Returned to form with cheekpieces added when a 33-1 third at Uttoxeter (3m2f, good) 19 days ago but was beaten around 7l and she's still 2lb higher than for her narrow win at Newton Abbot last August; others are more persuasive.

Form & Verdict

Lightly raced 9yo; has record of 4-6 over fences and he's made all here (2m4f) and at Uttoxeter (2m6f, both on good) in his two runs since returning from a lengthy absence; up another 9lb but he beat a clear second with something in hand last time and is open to more progress; big player.

Doesn't look entirely solid on recent form but shaped better than the bare result at Hexham five days ago; gained both handicap wins off higher marks and receives plenty of weight all round in this field; possibilities if anywhere near best.
