Form & Verdict

Comfortably won small-field chase on seasonal debut in October but very little has gone to plan since and he was well beaten when switched back to hurdling for last two runs; has conditions to suit here but needs to turn a corner.

Won easily off reduced mark at Wincanton (2m5f, good) in February and backed up that performance with respectable fourth at Cheltenham (3m, good) last month but probably needs a career best here.

Steadied the ship after three poor runs with his comfortable win at Wincanton in February (2m5f) and there was nothing wrong with his 4l fourth at Cheltenham (3m; again on good) latest; those runs came after breaks of 54 and 60 days respectively, suggesting he might be best caught fresh; could have done without the rain on Thursday.

Dug deep to hold on by a neck at Taunton (2m3f, soft) last month and is now 2-8 over hurdles; subsequent 2lb rise ought to be manageable and the refitted cheekpieces might squeeze out something extra.

Form & Verdict

Creditable fourth in valuable novices' handicap at Sandown (2m, good) at end of last season but his chasing debut in October was disappointing and both subsequent hurdle runs were no better than respectable; on a tempting mark now but needs to up his game.

Form & Verdict

Placed three consecutive times since winning on stable debut at Hereford (2m5f, good to soft) in November, most recently when creditable third in valuable Sandown handicap (2m7f, good to soft) a fortnight ago; in much calmer waters and only 1lb higher here; commands respect.

J: James Turner

T: Nigel Twiston-Davies

Not at his best the last twice but the first occasion was his chase debut, and when back over hurdles at Cheltenham last time he was hampered early which proved costly given he usually makes the running; made all at Uttoxeter (2m7f, good) in July and he's fine on slow ground; could make bold bid.

Form & Verdict

Very lightly raced 8yo who returned from long absence to win by 12l on stable debut at Huntingdon (2m4f, good to soft; made all) on Boxing Day; hiked up 11lb for that but the form has been very well advertised by the runner-up since; major player.

Won a bumper and a Chepstow maiden hurdle (2m, heavy) on first two starts; failed to complete on his last three runs but was in front when falling two out at Newton Abbot when last seen 442 days ago (first run after a wind op); has since left Paul Nicholls; could be nicely handicapped and is one to take seriously; Harry Derham's first runner as a trainer.
