J: Lilly Pinchin

T: Charlie Longsdon

Strong stayer who was 4-4 over fences before falling in a valauble handicap chase at Doncaster 14 months ago when running well; on a potentially good mark for this return to hurdling but fully entitled to need this after his period on the sidelines and returning to fences is presumably on the agenda.

Transformed by the switch to chasing, winning on all three attempts; they were on good ground under Lilly Pinchin, in good style over about 3m on first two occasions and having to work harder to assert over 3m2f at Uttoxeter on latest; raised another 6lb, which demands better still but it's the probably much more testing ground which poses the big question.

Since winning his first three over fences (all handicaps from 2m3f to 3m1f; good to soft/soft) he's twice come up short, though his latest conqueror (who won easily) went in again at Uttoxeter on Saturday; on a challenging mark but he's consistent and still only a 6yo.

Won by 8l at Sandown in February (3m, soft) despite some scruffy jumping and very nearly followed up at Warwick (3m5f, soft; 4lb lower); probably needs significant cut underfoot and therefore last week's non-completion on good ground at Cheltenham is forgiven; possibilities.

Posted career-best performance when making all to win readily by 8l at Sandown (3m, soft) in February and, despite a much less fluent round of jumping, he lost out only by a nose when returned to 3m5f at Warwick (soft) last month; might give this a good shot from the front.

Has done well since switched to hunter chases for his new yard but his Warwick win (3m, soft) came at the expense of a frustrating horse who looked in command only to stop to nothing on the run-in; heavy ground was no good to this 11yo last time when behind Quintin's Man; placed at best if he's lucky.
