J: Harry Cobden

Best racing right-handed and career-high form in winning last season's Grade 2 Pendil Chase at Kempton (2m4f, good; fine on softer) in February before his only blip all campaign, at Sandown; unable to dominate as he likes when a rallying runner-up in Exeter's Haldon Gold Cup and every chance of getting some freedom up front this time; hard to resist on very favourable terms.

Form & Verdict

Won on his fourth attempt in Irish maiden points; went on to make it 3-4 over hurdles last term, with better form in the mud than on good ground; switches to chasing and should have plenty more to give.

Mastered Whacker Clan two out in the Kim Muir at Cheltenham (3m2f, soft) five weeks ago and beat him 18l into third, facing an impossible task however against Inothewayurthinkin who has since added an impressive Grade 1 novice win at Aintree; has never been further than that big-race second over 3m2f but has had entries in major staying handicaps and may well be suited by today's test.

J: Mr William Biddick

T: Jamie Snowden

Last year's hat-trick of handicap chase wins (2m7f/3m1f, soft/good to soft) came in small fields and he was a soundly beaten sixth of ten at Ascot (3m, good) in December last time; however, he's better than that and may be able to rediscover his previously progressive ways now back from a break.

J: Gavin Sheehan

T: Jamie Snowden

Won six of nine races under rules; all of his five chases have been in small fields but he looks on the up, ending last season with two wins at Catterick (3m1f, soft) in January and reappearing with another at Lingfield (2m7f, good to soft) last month; up another 5lb and this is much more of a test but he may well pass it.

Form & Verdict

0-5 over hurdles but staying-on fourth of 17 in EBF Final here (2m4f handicap, soft) in March; had wind surgery during the summer and tongue tied as well when making a satisfactory chase debut in five-runner handicap at Uttoxeter (2m6f, good) three weeks ago; needs to build significantly on that.

Placed off 7lb higher mark in stronger race than this at Exeter (3m, good to soft) in November but was pulled up on next two outings and was last of four (albeit not beaten far) when cheekpieces were added for latest run; now 0-15 under all codes and needs to up his game; drops back in trip with visor tried today.

Goes particularly well on soft/heavy, as when winning 2m handicap hurdles in two of his four starts last season (at this meeting on first occasion); brings potential to this chase/seasonal debut.
