Form & Verdict

Improving 5yo who posted a personal best when scoring over fences at Kelso (2m1f, good to soft) six weeks ago; that was only his second chase start and there's almost certainly more progress to come; high on the list.

Raced mainly over shorter under rules (all wins on good/good to soft) but largely progressive and running on well into a good second of nine over C&D (no threat to the winner) last time suggested he has more to offer at the trip; considered.

Raced mainly at shorter trips under rules; all wins on good/good to soft; largely progressive; respectable fourth at Ascot (2m1f) most recently but is held by Frere D'Armes on that form and this return to 2m4f presents a question mark.

Reliable type with plenty of chasing experience; bumped into a well-handicapped rival when second at Fontwell (2m2f, soft) last month, and that form has been franked since; probably just as effective on good ground; unlikely to be far away.

Form & Verdict

In good form this time last year, winning at Exeter (2m1f, good); in and out since but his mark has fallen and he might have needed the run after four months off when sixth of ten in a warm race at Kempton (first and third successful since) last month; has to be respected for in-form stable.

All three chase wins came in 2021; well treated on all that and, although last to finish on his stable debut at Carlisle (2m, soft) after three months off, he wasn't beaten far and might come on for the run; has done his winning over shorter but probably stays this far.

Not the force of old but he tends to come alive here, winning this race in 2020 and going down narrowly (good to soft ground) 12 months ago; mainly in the doldrums since but there were signs of a revival at Plumpton 18 days ago and he's thrown in on his best form despite being 3lb out of the weights.
