Won at Wetherby (2m3f, soft) in December on second British chase start; bumped into a progressive winner at Catterick over Christmas and returned to winning ways back there (2m3f, good) three weeks ago; did it very readily last time and every chance he'll be fine at 2m5f; highly respected up 9lb.

Won three times last season (2m3f/2m5f, soft/good) and back on the scoresheet at Catterick (2m3f, soft) in December; hasn't run badly when fourth the last twice but needs something extra to come out on top today.

11-race maiden whose jumping can lack fluency but he's run some good races over fences, including over C&D and when going very close at Southwell (2m4f, good) a fortnight ago; can be bang there if minimising the mistakes.

Maiden after 14 starts; placed in five of nine chasing attempts but below best in latest two outings; cheekpieces now replaced by a visor, which will need to give a boost if he's to get off the mark.

Disappointed in early March and is now 0-8 over fences but was second twice in February, more notably when beaten only by a head over C&D on first occasion; can cope with any lingering juice in the ground and has obvious claims if back on song after 75-day break.

He's a 12-race maiden but he went close at Southwell (2m4f, good) two starts ago and bumped into a progressive winner when 5l second at Sedgefield (2m5f, good) last Thursday; there can be optimism he'll be okay on the forecast good to soft ground and every chance he'll be bang there.

Form & Verdict

Following wind surgery he kept on for an encouraging third at Newcastle (2m, soft) last month; he jumped to the right that day and is unproven on the forecast better ground, but it's possible today's step up in trip will prompt improvement and this lightly raced 7yo is one to consider.
