Rare hurdle start these days when beaten a neck at Uttoxeter (2m4f, soft) before returning to fences with a respectable fourth at Cheltenham (2m4f, soft; beaten 12l); a late mistake didn't help matters last time and yet he finished his race out nicely; major player now down a grade.

Form & Verdict

Smart in his prime but his only win from eight hunter chases this year (under Freddie Gingell) was in a match; returns to a handicap for this first run since May and a case can certainly be made given his reduced mark.

Nothing like the force of old and his only win in the last three seasons came in a two-runner hunter chase in February 2022; runner-up in a small-field handicap in December but that's probably not good enough form and he was soundly beaten 12 days ago.

J: Freddie Gingell

T: Joe Tizzard

Smart in his prime but his only win from eight hunter chases this year (under Freddie Gingell) was in a match; however, he is well treated on his best 2022 form and was a respectable second back in a handicap at Lingfield (2m4f, good to soft) on his recent return after 192 days off; looks interesting if he can build on that and this step back up in trip is a positive.

Form & Verdict

Irish handicap form became far more occasional in 2020 and 2021 but he won two Irish points this spring and runner-up in a hunter chase in June; £16,000 buy out of Stuart Crawford's in September; needs a close look.

Wins on ground ranging from good to soft; won both hurdle starts here much earlier in career and dual winning pointer in Ireland last spring; creditable debut for new yard at Lingfield in December but well below best when pulled up next time; aids left off; hard to assess.

Form & Verdict

Fourth in the Welsh National was his highlight last season and he's 16lb lower today; recent reappearance wasn't great and every one of his races since November 2019 has been beyond 3m, while this is just 2m4f, but this is another step down in class and his trainer is back among the winners.
