Form & Verdict

Four point/hunter chase wins for Christopher Barber last season, the most notable gained at Cheltenham (2m, good) in April; has fitness to prove after nine-month absence and today's trip-and-ground combination may stretch his stamina, but he still features prominently in calculations.

Has his own ideas but beat Drop Flight well enough over this trip at Ffos Las before being put in his place by Magic Saint at Wincanton; again has the assistance of James King and could run well if taking to the test.

Won three points and a 2m Cheltenham hunter chase last season, and looked in excellent nick when gaining comfortable success on last month's stable debut at Ffos Las (2m5f, good to soft); contests a stronger race here but ought to make his presence felt.

Three-time chase winner when trained in France and, following a long absence, made quite promising hunter chase debut when third (albeit well held) at Taunton (2m7f, soft) last month; has possibilities here if that outing did him good.

Strong claims on last spring's hunter chase form and his recent third to Haven't Time at Southwell (3m, soft) was a step back in the right direction; however, he certainly needs another today, having been beaten 13l.

Never really fulfilled the promise he showed in bumpers as a young horse but has still been a useful hurdler/chaser; absent since well beaten in competitive handicap hurdle last spring but there might be some fun to be had with him in hunter chases this season.
