Form & Verdict

Off the mark narrowly at Exeter (2m3f, good to soft) last month and followed up at Lingfield (2m4f, good) 19 days later despite jumping out to her right; up another 7lb but that latest win was gained in good style.

Three-time chase winner; runner-up off mark 9lb higher than today's on first two starts this season and will be suited by today's trip-and-ground combination but seems to have lost her way in recent months.

3-11 over fences, having won three on the trot last February-March, including this race on second leg; runner-up on first two starts this season, before lesser efforts on last two outings; last year's hat-trick was preceded by a heavy defeat and cheekpieces are now installed; has to be considered seriously in weak race.

Form & Verdict

Dual hurdle winner in spring 2018; chasing on last four starts; way down the weights and latest start (fourth of nine over C&D) was his best result this term, so not all hope is extinguished; wore cheekpieces twice (2019 and 2020) for former yard and they return today.

Won maiden hurdle last April; minor honours since in his first three handicaps (best form on second occasion, over 2m4f on good) but he unseated at the first in November and pulled up on heavy ground in January; back on better ground but chase debut poses the question this time.
