Form & Verdict

Form & Verdict

3-4 over hurdles last season (2m-2m4f, good-heavy) and he reappeared with a fair second of five on last month's chase debut at Sandown (2m4f, soft); stayed on strongly last time and this lightly raced 3m point winner is open to improvement now up in trip; likely player.

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.

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

Won two handicap hurdles here (extended 2m6f, soft) last December and has been even better switched to fences this autumn, going close at Carlisle (2m4f, good) then winning at Ayr (2m4f, soft); shapes as though this trip will suit and, up 4lb, there can be optimism he remains ahead of his mark.

Has come a fair way down the weights and the signs were a little more promising when beaten 12l at Carlisle last week (2m4f, heavy); still didn't really threaten from off the pace.

J: Edward Austin

Runner-up here last April and runs off a mark fully 18lb lower this afternoon; however, that's because he's been unable to get competitive on his six starts this season and he needs to turn things around.

Form & Verdict

This is his second start back from a long absence and he needs to prove he's as good as he was; however, his 14l third over C&D on last month's chase debut was encouraging given the length of the layoff, and he's well treated on his progressive 2020-21 hurdle form (two wins here); not ruled out.
