2-3 over fences at Ayr and his fifth chase win came at Carlisle (3m, heavy) 13 days ago; missed this race last year because of good ground, so the furthest he's been is still 3m2f, over which he twice strode out well to win on soft at Kelso; has a career-high mark but the longer trip is interesting.

Won off this mark at Kelso (3m2f, soft) last October and ran okay when a Listed third there on his latest chase start; excused subsequent below-par run over hurdles (chasing is his game nowadays); Kelso brings out the best in him but he's also run well here and could have a part to play.

Promising as a novice chaser but had only three runs last season, winding up with a third over 3m at Perth (good to soft) in April; has dropped to a favourable mark and stable has been going well lately; highly respected.

Losing sequence goes back 14 races to early 2021 but he has run well this season and some late idling cost him the race over 3m at Carlisle last time (heavy); finished third in this two years ago when 3lb higher; solid chance.

Went close here (2m4f, heavy) last March and kicked off this campaign with two good second-place finishes at Ayr (3m, soft/heavy); not at the top of his game at Newcastle the last twice and his losing sequence goes back 13 races to March 2021, but he's capable of having a say if bouncing back to form.

Form & Verdict

Progressive hurdler last season but found Grade 2 company too hot and was pulled up on his final start (wore first-time cheekpieces); no headgear for this chasing debut but tongue strap goes on; missed recent engagement at Kelso because of unsuitable ground (good); could be a threat if taking well to fences.

Returned to form with front-running win at Ayr (3m, soft) in December and is now 3-9 over fences; should be fine on this right-handed track but latest 7lb rise demands more from him and he may not be allowed an uncontested lead this time.

Won twice on better ground over fences in the summer; form has dipped in her last couple of starts including back over timber last time when pulled up in first-time blinkers (retained); well treated on peak form but suspicion she wants the ground quicker than this.

Form & Verdict

Useful chaser at his best; failed to win last season and was tailed off in the Scottish National here (4m, good to soft) when last seen in April; missed recent engagement at Carlisle because of unsuitable ground (good); likely to find this trip on the sharp side on seasonal reappearance.

Form & Verdict

Winning for the second time over fences when scoring in game fashion at Wetherby (2m3f, heavy) in March; favourite in first-time cheekpieces and still going well enough in front when falling three out at Newcastle (2m4f, good) on latest start in April; makes seasonal reappearance off the same mark without headgear and remains with room for improvement; any rain would be welcome.
