Form & Verdict

Down the weights when winning at Cheltenham in November and ran at least as well when third there off this 4lb higher mark in December, both from the front over 3m on good; needs to bounce back from a poor show at Wincanton on Boxing Day, when he was prominent early but did not lead.

Won Great Yorkshire Chase at Doncaster (3m, good) in January and that form has been franked by the runner-up; soft ground against him next time; fair sixth in this race last year (good to soft) and he may be able to improve upon that finishing position if good going prevails this afternoon.

Dual course winner who looked as good as ever when winning Great Yorkshire Handicap Chase at Doncaster (3m, good) last time and the runner-up has franked the form; a 7lb rise may not prevent another good run but the ground is likely to be key (well beaten in this race last year on soft).

J: Freddie Gordon

T: Chris Gordon

Dual chase winner in late 2021 (small fields) but his two subsequent wins have been over hurdles, as was his reappearance when a 12l fourth at Plumpton (3m1f, soft); that could have teed him up nicely for this but others have more going for them.

Best RPR on soft; spent last season in the wilderness but he's well handicapped on the best of his 2020-21 novice form and, following wind surgery, revived sufficiently to finish third over 3m on last two outings (here and at Wincanton); needs to build on those but has each-way chance.

Both hurdle wins on soft but ran his best race of the winter when close up on good ground over 3m here last month (course record; first-time cheekpieces, retained); effective over similar trips to today's last season and is very likely to play a part.

Very lightly raced in recent seasons; 11-month absence before never-dangerous fourth of eight at Cheltenham (3m, good) in December, which was much better than his run at Ludlow four weeks later (soft ground should not have been an excuse); back down another 2lb.

Off a reduced mark he's steadily returned to form this season, for all that he couldn't lay a glove on the winner over 2m4f here three weeks ago (heavy); returning to 3m should be a good thing and he'll be keeping on.

Form & Verdict

Best form from his two runs following wind surgery early in 2022, including when he stayed on for fifth in Grade 1 novice hurdle at Aintree (3m, good to soft) last April; unsuited by steady pace over 2m4f there on reappearance, soft ground was blamed next time and latest outing was also on soft; little response from the handicapper but could still be interesting.

Quickly developed into a useful hurdler last season, winning at Ascot (2m5f, good) and running well when second at Wincanton and Exeter (2m7f, soft; first-time cheekpieces); unlikely to have reached his limit and commands major respect on handicap debut after a break.
