Form & Verdict

Has patchy record in his ten starts over hurdles but his win came over an extended 2m3f (heavy) and he kicked off his chase career with a bold bid at Bangor last month; had to settle for third after making a bad mistake at the last in that race but that was a personal-best effort and he's an interesting contender off unchanged mark.

Took advantage of a reduced mark when making all to cause a 25-1 surprise back over fences at Southwell (2m4f, soft) last month; 6lb higher here but he remains well treated on his best chase form and is 5-19 in this sphere; respected.

Low-mileage 5yo who finished runner-up in four of his six start over hurdles but he kicked off his chase career with a remote sixth of nine at Bangor (3m, heavy) last month; has another change of headgear and this drop back in trip could suit but he comes with risks attached after that last run.

Built upon previous promise when bolting up at Haydock (2m, soft) in November, and heavy ground may have been too much back there last month; clearly very talented when things click but this is a much tougher race than the one he won two starts ago and he needs to prove he's up to the task.
