Scored over C&D (good) in 2021 and added another two chases to his tally last year (2m3f/2m5f, soft); below form when warm favourite at Plumpton this month but no surprise if he bounces back and goes well.

Promising novice hurdler last season and began chasing career with two very encouraging runs in the autumn, but flopped badly at Market Rasen on Boxing Day and needs to respond well to the addition of cheekpieces here.

Well beaten on last month's chase/handicap debut but the ground was heavy and that run came after a 651-day absence; drops in grade and moves up in trip here; remains very lightly raced for his age and may yet build upon his very promising hurdle form from 2020-21.

Ex-American Flat winner (8.5f, firm); enjoyed the good ground when winning a Stratford novice hurdle and good to soft conditions perhaps too slow for him when an 11l sixth on his switch to fences at Kelso (2m1f handicap); this quicker track and drier ground can trigger improvement on that form.
