Form & Verdict
Hasn't really kicked on since winning three-runner handicap on chasing debut in March but bumped into a progressive rival when well-held second at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good) this month and ought to play a significant role on today's terms.

Form & Verdict
Made very good progress over hurdles once fitted with cheekpieces in second half of 2021, winning four times (2m7f-3m2f) along the way; can be excused his Grade 2 defeat in January but today's chasing debut comes after a six-month break and the drop back in trip is not sure to suit.

Made it four wins (2m7f-3m2f, good-soft) from last five starts when landing a Fontwell handicap on Boxing Day; further improvement required today but all of his wins have come by narrow margins so he could be the type who only does just enough, and he may have more left in the tank; first-time blinkers replace cheekpieces; trainer has won three of the last six runnings.

Made it 3-5 in cheekpieces with last month's Kempton win; never seems to do more than necessary so 4lb rise for that success is no hardship; stays well and major player although might be inconvenienced on soft (all wins on good/good to soft).

Form & Verdict
Lightly raced under rules and made impressive start to chasing career this season, winning three small-field novices' handicaps (2m-2m4f) in good style; found Summer Plate at Market Rasen too hot two weeks ago but is back in calmer waters here and commands respect, despite his big penalty.

Form & Verdict
Showed some very usual form in slow-ground bumpers in 2019 and subsequently ran to the equivalent level over hurdles (albeit without winning); makes chasing debut after 541-day absence and on by far the quickest ground he has encountered but is impossible to rule out.
