Won twice under Elizabeth Gale last season (2m, good) and solid fourth of 18 at Cheltenham last time (2m1f, good; behind two of these); can give another good account but needs a career best to win this hot race.

J: Elizabeth Gale

T: Suzy Smith

Prominent racer with a course win to his name and he was good value for his narrow winning margin under Elizabeth Gale last time at Fakenham (2m, good; 5lb lower); prior to that he was only placed in a couple of handicaps won by today's rivals and he might be vulnerable in this strong a handicap.

Third foal; half-sister to two fair jumpers; not seen again since her keeping-on fifth of 16 at Warwick (good) last November but that form worked out very well, and her stable has excellent strike-rate in bumpers (27%).

Won a 2m3f mares' novice at Chepstow last April; not added to that tally in handicaps this season, but fair runs at around 3m on all six starts; tried in a visor last time, but normal cheekpieces back on here; has a bit to find.

Form & Verdict

Bought for £70,000 after finishing second in slow-ground Irish point in March; it's hard to tell what that form is worth but his new trainer has a good bumper strike-rate (17%) and Tom Cannon presumably had the pick of his two runners in this.

Winning hurdler who was runner-up in his first two chases at about 2m3f (beaten 20l and just under 4l) before his early fall at Taunton when stepped up to 2m7f; there could be improvement lurking over this far; off since November.

No match for easy winner when second of four on last month's chasing debut but probably bettered that performance when second at Plumpton (2m3f, good to soft) 24 days ago; contender if suited by today's longer trip.

Off the mark over hurdles with clearcut success at Market Rasen (2m4f, good to soft) in May; no match for easy winner when second of four on last month's chasing debut at Fontwell (2m3f, good) but positives can be drawn from that performance and he's 3lb lower now.

Form & Verdict

Out of a French Grade 1 hurdle winner; joined Milton Harris after making all for easy Irish point win in April; had to settle for second when odds-on for rules debut at Plumpton (good) in May but there was a gap back to the third and he remains very much of interest; hood added to tongue-tie here.
