Has plenty of chasing experience for a novice and chose a good day to open his account in this discipline when beating two rivals in the Grade 2 Reynoldstown at Ascot (3m, good to soft); it was not his first notable effort at the Festival when fifth in a very warm opening-day staying handicap (soft) won by Corach Rambler; solid credentials back in novice company.

Runner-up in the 3m Albert Bartlett in 2021 and another rock-solid Festival run when third to Corach Rambler in this race last year (good to soft; when 1lb lower) especially as he bled from the nose; hard to catch on a good day since but was his best self when winning a three-runner Grade 2 novice at Ascot in February and ought to be set fair to go well.

Soundly beaten at Aintree (3m, good to soft) four weeks ago but consistent in the main and ran well at the Cheltenham Festival in March; finished second in this race last year (good) and he's a player if back on song.

Has a good record in big-field handicaps and was one of the few Henderson-trained runners to perform with credit at the Cheltenham Festival when fourth to Monmiral in the Pertemps Final (3m, soft) four weeks ago; could make the frame again but others appeal more for win purposes.

Fifth in the Coral Cup here one year ago in first-time cheekpieces (kept since); best effort this term when good second of ten under 5lb claimer over C&D (soft) on penultimate start, but the winner White Rhino made the better impression in staying on more strongly.

Form & Verdict

2-2 in points; 5-5 since switched to chasing (all handicaps, mostly on good ground), the latest success at Aintree (3m1f) four months ago; highly progressive and commands respect with conditions in his favour.

Returned from a break with encouraging fourth at Aintree (3m1f, good to soft) a fortnight ago; stayed on well for third of 16 in Summer Cup at Uttoxeter (3m2f, good) last July, a run that can be upgraded due to jumping errors, and he's an interesting candidate; the drier the ground the better.

Pulled up at Cheltenham (3m1f, good to soft) in October when last seen and unraced on soft/heavy, so the recent rain is a worry; however, this two-time C&D winner was a good third in this last year (good to soft) and if the ground dries he could go well now back on a course he clearly relishes.
