Form & Verdict

Both wins on soft, when making successful handicap hurdle debut at Hereford (2m5f) last March, then straight off the mark over fences there last month (3m1f); up 8lb but should have more to offer as a chaser.

Progressive 7yo who won fairly comfortably in first-time blinkers at Market Rasen (3m, good to soft) last month and is now 4-9 over fences; another 6lb higher here but still features prominently in calculations.

Form & Verdict

Triple chase winner in Ireland at 2m4f-3m, all on heavy; two fair efforts for new connections of late, albeit no match for the winner when upped to 3m5f at Fakenham last month; needs more off the same mark.

J: Daire Davis

T: Olly Murphy

Weakened when favourite at Huntingdon (2m7f, good to soft) last month but that was after two runner-up efforts including in a marathon handicap at this track; now drops back to 2m5f but he's versatile trip-wise and has claims if he can get back near his best; 2lb out of the weights.

Three wins in staying chases during 2021 but has shown little of that ability in a handful of starts since, including without regular blinkers (refitted today) on last two starts over hurdles and fences; risky.

Apart from his third at Huntingdon in January, he has been most disappointing in the last 18 months, showing little enthusiasm; pulled up over C&D latest (hampered) but perhaps Jamie Moore can inspire him.

Raced with a lot more enthusiasm than has become the norm when third at Huntingdon (2m7f, good to soft) in January but was quickly back in the doldrums at Plumpton the following month and it's hard to predict the extent to which this regressive 9yo will warm to the task here.

J: Caoilin Quinn

Third over C&D in January on penultimate start but that's some way below his best form and far and away the best he's achieved this season; having a 17lb lower mark than this time last year helps somewhat and his stable has had lots of recent winners.

2-9 over fences, the latter win gained by 12l at Sedgefield (3m3f, soft) in November; showed some signs of temperament when below that form there in January and is not without risk on this first start for 12 weeks.

Low-mileage for a 9yo and stays well, as he showed when 12l to the good over 3m3f at Sedgefield a month ago (soft); 8lb asks a question but appeals as the safest option.
