Form & Verdict

Came good over fences at third attempt, making all at Doncaster (2m, good) at end of December; should be okay on the slower ground here and has plenty of scope for further improvement; major player.

J: Jack Tudor

Progressive novice chaser last season, winning twice (good/heavy); still held a fighting chance when final-fence faller in Cheltenham handicap on reappearance and could well rate higher still; faces a stiffer assignment upped in class but brings an attractive profile.

T: Gary Moore

By the same sire as the stable's star 2m chaser Editeur Du Gite; looked seriously progressive when making all in 2m handicaps at Doncaster (good) and Warwick (heavy), with his jumping particularly impressive the last time; whacked up 10lb for that latest success but looks to have Graded-race potential.

Form & Verdict

Three good runs this season, the latest when second at Lingfield (2m, heavy; no match for winner) last month; not obviously well treated after a recent 1lb drop but ought to make his presence felt again here.

Triple chase winner who dug deep when scoring at Hereford (2m, soft) in January; reportedly suffering from an irregular heartbeat when disappointing at Chepstow but bounced back with a good second at Wincanton 12 days ago; probably wouldn't want the ground to dry out but he still looks on a workable mark and has possibilities if conditions are in his favour.

Dug deep to fend off Rose Sea Has at Hereford (2m, soft) and was reportedly suffering from an irregular heartbeat when running no race at Chepstow; close to a career-high mark but needs respecting.

Form & Verdict

Won two Grade 2 novice chases last season before very good second to Edwardstone in C&D Grade 2 novice last February; below form on both outings this term and not yet tested on ground slower than soft but had a wind op in November and will be very dangerous off current mark if back on song.

Best on good/good to soft; smart novice chaser last season, including when third in the Grade 1 novice chase at this meeting; below par in November but subsequent wind surgery has helped, winning at Sandown (1m7f, good to soft) and was moving into contention when hampered two out at Cheltenham in March; can find extra back on less testing finish.

Has got back on track since having a second wind operation, building on an encouraging third at Warwick when winning a Sandown handicap (1m7f, good to soft) last month; has run well at this meeting before; considered.

Stablemate of Eclair D'Ainay and usually ridden in contrasting style, coming from the rear; shaped encouragingly after wind surgery when 19l third of four at Warwick (2m, heavy) three weeks ago, fading after making headway; today's less testing ground should suit and he's a leading candidate.

Form & Verdict

Long in the tooth now and patently not as good as he was but finished with good late thrust to go very close at Ludlow (2m, good to soft; also suited by heavy) last month and remains on a workable mark.

Won off 1lb lower at Sandown (1m7f, good) in February and evidently retains significant ability as a 12yo but became very inconsistent last season and needs to bounce back quickly from a lacklustre effort two weeks ago.
