Form & Verdict

French bumper winner; generally disappointing over hurdles for Paul Nicholls but looked a different horse when winning very comfortably on last month's chasing debut at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good), and a 9lb rise might not stop him if he's in similar form here.

Form & Verdict

Useful Flat-racer who won twice over hurdles last season (1m7f/2m1f); managed only third of four when warm favourite for recent chasing debut at Newton Abbot (2m, good to soft), though, and will need a better effect here.

Useful Flat-racer who has 2-5 strike-rate over hurdles; in fairly good form over fences for Joe Tizzard when last seen in the autumn but this stable debut comes after a 195-day break; others preferred.

Attainment level as a chaser quickly established when placing on all four starts over fences last autumn (2m-2m3.5f), the last three of them 0-120 handicaps; could be a bit more is needed on this stable debut.

Dual hurdle winner who has run fairly well in his first three chases, the last two being handicaps (2m3f/2m); looks handicapped about right but should put up another decent show.

Form & Verdict

Came good over hurdles at fourth attempt, in Class 5 handicap at Warwick (2m, good to soft) in March; well beaten on final two starts last season (faced tough task last time) and makes chasing debut after 161-day break but is open to improvement if he takes well to fences.

His mark has taken a hit for his recent consistency, latterly finishing second of 16 in a good-ground C&D handicap in early February for which he went up another 3lb; should be thereabouts nonetheless.

Form & Verdict

Capitalised upon some help from the handicapper when winning easily by 14l over hurdles at Bangor in July and last month's Stratford fourth (also 2m, good) was perfectly respectable but he hasn't raced over fences since finishing last of three on his chasing debut in 2018.

Form & Verdict

In good form over hurdles in early part of this year and was runner-up in first two chases, latterly behind a dual subsequent winner here (2m5f, good) in May; competes off same mark today; major player if ready to roll after four-month break.

Made his move early at Southwell on Friday (3m, good) but finished tired in the end in a remote fifth; capable of better but it's asking a lot to show it only two days later.

Just 1-14 under rules but he was second on his first two attempts at chasing (3m2f/2m5f, both on good) and unshipped his rider early last time; may well have more to offer over fences and could be the answer
