Form & Verdict

Recorded a comfortable success in veterans' chase at Musselburgh (3m, good to soft) last month, showing that he retains plenty of ability aged 12; has more on his plate in this better race of its type but could go well as he arrives in good form.

Has gained all chase wins over 2m4f at Sandown and 3m at Ascot, the most recent in November; below par back at Sandown (3m) four weeks ago; has the ability to take a serious hand on debut in veteran company but this C&D may not prove the ideal scenario.

Twice well beaten over C&D this winter, including last time, but in between he won at Plumpton and he's a two-time C&D winner who was third in this race last year; has won on a variety of ground; not ruled out.

Became fiendishly difficult to predict in these colours for Colin Tizzard; runner-up last March/April on first two runs for this yard but pulled up in October on sole run this season, so the doubts about him return.

Form & Verdict

Finished second in similar event at Warwick in November (best effort this season); faller at Uttoxeter most recently; 2-2 in handicaps at Newbury, including a success (off 4lb higher; career-best performance) in the big November pot in 2019; interesting back here.

Staged something of a revival in first-time cheekpieces at Sandown (3m veterans' chase) two months ago; possibilities if building on that second-place finish; defied a 13lb higher mark in top 3m2f handicap at Newbury in 2019.

Form & Verdict

At his peak when winning the big November handicap (off 1lb higher) over C&D in 2020 and following up in the Premier Chase at Kelso; flopped when favourite for that season's Grand National and has lacked consistency since; however, this looks his easiest task for some time and he's very tempting from a handicapping perspective (peak mark was 156).
