Form & Verdict

Five wins in France; yet to score after four attempts in Britain but ran well when second to last Saturday's big-race winner Le Milos at Exeter in January; absent since the following month but unlikely to lack fitness with yard now going well; interesting after wind surgery.

Seemed to respond well to first-time cheekpieces when second at Taunton (3m4f, soft) last month and remains very well handicapped on older form but his record in recent seasons is very mixed.

Tailed off on this month's return over hurdles but unbeaten in two visits here, both over 3m on good ground in March; only 3lb higher than for the second of those so claims if at his best; can jump to his left.

Has gained most wins at Warwick, the last three over 3m5f; best effort this term came over same distance in cross-country race at Cheltenham; drops back in grade off a workable mark but this doesn't look an ideal scenario; 0-4 at Hereford.

Often front-runs; Warwick specialist with five wins from six appearances and two of those wins were over 3m5f (one on soft); the defeat, however, came in this race last year (heavy) when beaten 16l in a respectable fifth; best to forgive this season (way out of the weights on Cheltenham cross-country on last two starts) but 2lb wrong today and this task looks a bit too tough.

Game Worcester winner last month on return from a break, his first success as a chaser; 5lb higher in a tougher race but very likely he can improve again and certainly firmly in the reckoning.

Well beaten over the National fences at Aintree latest but had earlier won at Market Rasen (now 4lb higher); first time he's tackled this sort of trip as a chaser (2m7f winner over hurdles) and may well improve for it; often makes the running and needs taking seriously.

Form & Verdict

Didn't produce his best at Cheltenham this month but he's a largely consistent chaser and only 1lb higher than when scoring at Stratford in May; chance will be enhanced if the ground dries (all wins on good) and if cheekpieces have a beneficial effect, with yard among the winners.

Recorded his fourth chase win when scoring off 5lb higher at Stratford (3m3f, good) last May but he's been generally disappointing since and was well-held sixth at Kempton on his recent return from a break; now goes back up in trip but has bit to prove and he needs to get back near best.

Back to the mark of his near-3m4f Stratford handicap chase win of May 2022; below par last autumn (markedly so latest), but proven defier of absences of over 100 days and a sound surface would be appreciated.

Not seen since three below-par runs in the autumn but has often gone well when fresh before and is now back on same mark as when gaining clearcut win at Stratford (3m3f, good) at start of this season; will be suited by today's drying ground; worth a second look.

Ended last season with two good-ground chase wins (2m4f/3m; one here) but he's struggled in his four runs this term and was a remote fifth at Exeter (3m, good to soft) last time; now back on last winning mark but he needs to turn things around.
