Won on chase debut at Market Rasen (2m1f, good to soft) last October and, after his third at Catterick (1m7f, good to soft), he's posted easy wins the last twice (1m7f/2m1f, good/good to soft); this is tougher than Market Rasen 12 days ago but he's ahead of the handicapper under a 7lb penalty.

Won chase/seasonal debut over C&D (good to soft) in October; close third next time and made a big leap forward when winning by 16l in a seven-runner novice handicap at Catterick (1m7f, good) two months ago; kept away from soft ground this term; lightly raced 7yo who's up 8lb but that may underestimate him.

Form & Verdict

0-12 under rules (0-7 over fences) and takes on some unexposed rivals, but he returned from an absence with a 12l second of 13 behind a well-handicapped winner on his stable debut at Warwick (2m, soft) on New Year's Eve, and he's in calculations on that form.

Chased home progressive rival on stable debut at Warwick (2m, soft) in December and kept on from a long way off the pace for another second at Catterick (1m7f, good) last month; held before last-fence fall on latest outing (2m4f) and 3lb wrong here, but still makes some appeal now dropped back in trip and with first-time cheekpieces fitted.

Winner of his only point back in 2018 but things never fell right for him over fences for previous yard; up against it behind progressive winners in two starts for new connections (stewards enquired latest, explanation noted) but is in shallower waters here; is open to improvement.

Made it 3-9 over fences when keeping on well to score in reapplied cheekpieces at Southwell (2m, soft; Superstylin third) 16 days ago; up 3lb but that was a personal best last time and her first chase win came over C&D; key player.

Won two in a row last spring (2m1f, soft/heavy) and has worked her way back into form this term, finishing a close third of six at Catterick (2m3f, soft) latest; this drop back in trip may help and cheekpieces return for first time since March 2022 (often ran well in them); one to consider.

Well beaten in his three novice hurdles but begins handicap life off a lowly mark and went close in an Irish point last March, so could improve for this switch to fences; interesting candidate, especially if backed.

Displayed some promise on chase debut at Kelso (2m1f, good to soft) in October and built on that when second at Hexham (1m7f, soft); open to further improvement over fences and this front-runner could make a bold bid.
