Form & Verdict

Point winner in Ireland and a progressive sort over hurdles for current yard; soundly beaten by a smart rival at Exeter (3m) on the switch to chasing, not helped by a bad mid-race mistake; should be capable of better, granted an error-free round.

11st 7lb

J: Mr James King

T: Nicky Henderson

Won Hereford handicap (3m1f, soft) last January on second chase start and followed up in Grade 2 Towton Novices' Chase at Wetherby (3m, good to soft) last February; some fair efforts back in handicaps since but he hasn't kicked on and needs to raise his game in first-time cheekpieces to win this.

J: Robert Dunne

T: Nicky Henderson

14l fourth to Malina Girl at Cheltenham (3m3f; favourite) in November, giving the impression that reappearance run might have been needed, but he again lost places late on when below-form fifth back at Cheltenham (3m2f) four weeks ago; looked promising last term but now has a bit to prove.

Form & Verdict

Point/hurdle winner; had consistent chase form prior to a dismal performance (eventually pulled up) in major 2m4f handicap at Cheltenham on New Year's Day; has possibilities back down in grade, provided he bounces back and stays the new trip.

in touch with leaders, dropped to last 9th, awkward jump 14th, pushed along and went second 3 out, ridden and went clear with winner from 2 out, outpaced approaching last, no impression when unbalanced and almost fell run-in

Form & Verdict

Made a mid-race mistake and soon pulled up in the Lincolnshire National at Market Rasen on Boxing Day; recorded a 24l success over this C&D (good to soft) the time before and warrants respect back here despite racing off a stone higher mark this time.

His form can be up and down but he's won his last two, from the rear at Sandown (2m4f, good to soft) last month and from the front at Market Rasen (2m3f, good to soft) last week; won on soft last October; did it easily last time and he's 4lb ahead of the handicapper under a 5lb penalty; key player.
