Back on track when second to stablemate The Bosses Oscar at Limerick last month; long time without a win however and up against it to reverse that trend here.

Cashed in on a much reduced mark when a 40-1 winner at Hexham (2m4f, good) in September, but he struggled in his final two runs (hurdle/chase) in the autumn; handles most ground but he needs a major revival back over hurdles after four months off; cheekpieces removed.

Second in this last year (good) and he capitalised on his much-reduced mark at Hexham (2m4f, good) last month; however, this 10yo has struggled more often than not over the last 12 months and was well beaten at Kelso (2m5f, good) last time; others are more solid.

Form & Verdict

High-class staying hurdler, finishing second in both the Stayers' Hurdle at Cheltenham and twice in Hatton's Grace; didn't get much luck in running in Galway Plate last week but did finish off his race well; major player and well treated by the race conditions.

One-time smart sort over hurdles and fences, was 2nd in the 2020 Stayers' Hurdle; however, is a long way from that level now and was beaten in two points' lately, so others preferred.

Very useful hurdler at his best, recording a third win when accounting for stablemate Dallas Des Pictons in 2m4f Limerick conditions event last month; stays 3m well but probably needs a near career-best to pull this one off.

Ran away with a similar Thurles contest when last seen over timber in October; comes here on the back of a second consecutive win in Queen Alexandra Stakes at Ascot in June; admirable 9yo who should take plenty of beating and won't mind any rain.

Acts on soft, bit more to prove on heavy; two of the highlights in his long and admirable career were 2021 and 2022 wins in the 2m5f Queen Alexandra at Royal Ascot; only seventh in that race this year and his powers are seemingly on the wane, so he will do very well to match last year's fourth in this event on the only other time he's worn either tongue-tie or blinkers, both of which now return.

Smart dual-purpose sort has won 11 races under all codes; has run mostly on the Flat in the last two years and ran a corker when second at Galway last week; couldn't handle testing ground at Auteuil when last seen over hurdles in November but this will suit better; the pick of Paul Townend.

Smart hurdler (C&D winner) and won on his chasing debut at Galway last July; hasn't really built on that although fair fourth in valuable Uttoxeter handicap on latest; looks up against it.
