Teenager who stays very well and recorded his sixth chase win when scoring at Warwick (3m, good) in May; somewhat unreliable now but current mark if workable if he's on a going day.

Won over a similar trip last July but seems to have gone off the idea this winter, refusing to race two starts ago and pulling up either side, most recently on Monday; can only watch.

Form & Verdict

Unexposed 6yo who caused 50-1 shock when fitted with blinkers for handicap hurdle debut here (2m4f, good to soft) last month; needs to bounce back from a duff effort 16 days ago but connections are evidently keen to switch her to fences and move up to 3m; visor tried today.

0-13 under rules but he returned to chasing with a creditable second in C&D handicap in December; this is a deeper race but he's on the same mark as last time and could be a big factor if he can back that up; his best hurdle form came on slow ground but last run was on good to firm.

2-6 since switched to chasing this year, the latter win gained at Ffos Las (3m4f, good to soft) in May; slightly disappointing when only third of five at Hexham (3m, good) last month but may still have more to offer.

Gave pretty good account when third of six at Market Rasen (2m1f, good) two starts ago but his only win from 36 career starts was gained on the Flat in 2019; 2lb out of the weights here and has stamina to prove on first attempt at 3m; tongue-tie fitted.
