Form & Verdict

Not seen since heavy defeat over hurdles here in November but made promising handicap debut when staying-on third at Ascot (2m3f, good) in October and his close second in an Irish point in 2021 bodes well for his chasing prospects; tongue-tie added.

Absent since soundly beaten at Taunton last March on final run for Christian Williams, which made it 0-7 under rules; however, before that he was a promising third on chase debut at Fakenham (2m5f, good) and he was runner-up in a 3m point in 2021 (yielding to soft); his new trainer can ready one after a layoff and he's an interesting contender, all the more so if well backed.

Form & Verdict

Won three chases in a row on slow ground in November-January (2m-2m3f); had to settle for second at Catterick (2m3f, soft) last week but today's trip-and-ground combination should also suit and he's likely to be right in the thick of things again.

Bright start for new stable with two wins at Exeter (2m3f); jumping has been an issue, to some extent, in both outings since; ran creditably latest (3m, good to soft) but ideally needs to regain fluency.

2-2 in 2m3f handicap chases at Exeter (heavy/good to soft) since switching to Harry Derham; form of both wins boosted, particularly the latter, and a further 8lb rise doesn't look enough to stop him with ground conditions to suit.

Form & Verdict

Won over hurdles here (2m4f, good) last season and bounced back to form to cause 20-1 surprise over fences at Lingfield (2m, good to soft) in December; however, he showed no enthusiasm when pulled up on his last two appearances and it's hard to predict whether he'll warm to the task today.
