Form & Verdict
Two wins over fences but the latest, at Stratford last month, came in unlikely fashion as he was struggling at the back for most of the race; visor worn there replaced by blinkers (on for previous success); clearly of interest but a more enthusiastic display needed off 4lb higher.

Form & Verdict
Has scarcely beaten a rival in his last ten starts and mark has dropped 34lb; won six of his previous eight, a sequence that began after wind surgery; perhaps another such procedure can spark a revival.

Won four of his first six races over fences, including on this course, but he's been on a downward spiral for some time now; beaten a long way out at Huntingdon last month and excuses are wearing thin.

Form & Verdict
Won over hurdles here last September but yet to add to that; good efforts when twice placed in the spring but was pulled up at Southwell in May; bit to prove on debut over fences but related to winning chasers.

Only hurdling win gained here and he ran well when runner-up to a subsequent winner at Southwell last month; chasing debut and can be considered if he takes to the discipline; cheekpieces left off.

Hard to know quite what he achieved when runner-up to a smart performer over C&D last month but at least it was a step in the right direction; receives plenty of weight from his rivals so could well make an impact.

Satisfactory chasing debut when second at Ffos Las but no more than that (jumped right, made mistakes late on); longer trip a help, as might be a tongue-strap, but will need to build on that initial effort.
