Not firing on all cylinders over fences this season and now reverts to hurdling for first time since March 2022; given very good chance by the handicapper and has conditions to suit but needs 119-day break to have done him good.

Plenty of chasing experience, some of it in good company, but didn't really improve last season; well beaten on return a month ago and beginning to look a shade frustrating; still hard to rule out.

Won three of first four hurdles at 2m-2m2f (soft/heavy); fair start to chase career in late 2021 but wasn't seen again for over a year and never involved at Hereford in December (2m, soft) when given time to overcome some rusty early jumps; still has potential and should come on for the run.

3-5 over hurdles in 2020-21 season and made quite encouraging chasing debut in November 2021; subsequent 410-day absence is an obvious concern but he should still have potential.

Very lightly raced 7yo who created pretty good impression when pushed-out winner on seasonal, chase and handicap debut at Newbury (2m, soft) in December; no match for impressive winner when second at Sandown (1m7f, good to soft) last month but could have significant untapped potential over today's longer trip and remains very much of interest.

No win in his first 12 chase starts but he took advantage of reduced mark when scoring in good style at Taunton (2m, soft) last month; 8lb higher in different conditions here but he's versatile regarding trip and ground and remains well handicapped on his best form; respected.

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.

Verdict

There may be little between Hooligan and Llandinabo Lad on this occasion (preferred in that order) but it is hard to escape the claims of GAMARET after his emphatic C&D win last month.[Jonathan Neesom]
