Form & Verdict

12-race maiden but it was his chase debut when runner-up in a 2m3f handicap at Market Rasen (good to soft), albeit proving no match for the winner; sent off favourite for that at 15-8 and could have more to offer in this scene.

Runner-up first three starts this season, including over C&D (soft) on reappearance, but had no obvious excuses when only fourth of six at Market Rasen (13-8 favourite) in January; needs first-time cheekpieces to have a positive effect.

Six starts over fences; won two of his last three, both here over 2m7f and latterly 2m4f when coming 20l clear in a three-runner handicap; raised 7lb for that but the RPR was highly respectable.

Has done the bulk of his recent racing at Huntingdon, winning chases over near 3m and 2m4f last year; didn't run badly on ground slower than ideal in April; contender, for all there may be stronger stayers lurking.

Off the mark with an easy win over C&D in April and he returned from his summer break to win a three-runner handicap over 2m4f here in October; made mistakes when second seven weeks ago; shouldn't be far away with a clear round.

Bumper winner who went 0-6 over hurdles, pulling up in both his handicaps; goes chasing off a reduced mark but he looks the stable second string.

Lightly raced 8yo who has had only three starts over fences and he won here (2m6f, good to firm) in November before being brought down at Ludlow (3-1 favourite) the following month; now steps back up in trip but he was strong at the finish on his penultimate run and should have more to offer in this sphere; key player.

Showed nothing in three handicaps over hurdles and, although a winning pointer, he's not the obvious answer on his chase debut.

Won his sole point but he's generally struggled in eight runs under rules and has been tailed off switched to fences (2m4f/3m1f) in last two starts; mark continues to fall but he makes no appeal.

Best effort in three hurdles was a second here (2m, soft), after which he finished tailed off in two maidens; connections evidently keen to get him over fences and handicapping; market useful.
