Form & Verdict

Not yet matched his useful hurdle form over fences, including with a visor added (retained) at Lingfield last time; others certainly arrive with more pressing claims but it's still relatively early days in this sphere and he has a good record over hurdles here on testing ground.

Best known for his Sandown wins, where he's not been quite at his best this season; made mistakes on last two outings and stamina not proven (seen only twice at about 3m) but he has edged down the weights.

Form & Verdict

Showed he's still capable of useful form after his long absence when opening his chase account in three-runner field at Lingfield (2m, good to soft) in January; not disgraced but comfortably held in third in a 2m handicap here since; steps back up in trip now (all wins around 2m).

Rejuvenated in these blinkers in December, winning two in a row from the front in small fields (2m5f/2m3f, heavy/soft); however, tailed off at Chepstow (2m, heavy) in February last time and isn't easy to fancy after that.

Form & Verdict

Bounced back quickly from a poor run in the Castleford at Wetherby over Christmas when taking his record at that West Yorkshire venue to 4-5 in a 19.5f handicap (soft) 44 days ago; ought to remain competitive up 5lb but his six wins have come at left-handed tracks (0-4 right handed).

Two wins in smallish fields at Wetherby (1m7f/2m3f) last season; up and down this campaign but was trying 3m for the first time when beaten about 7l at Sandown a month ago (good to soft) and appeared to stay okay; nothing wrong with this mark.

7 yo Gelding

OR: 144

Form & Verdict

3-3 over hurdles last term, including a Listed event on soft; on the back of an impressive chase debut win at Kempton (2m2f, soft) in November he went off favourite for a Grade 2 back there over Christmas but unseated just after halfway; turned over at short odds at Exeter (2m3f, good) since but he may have found the quicker surface against him and the promise of that chase debut success is still fresh in the memory.

Went the wrong way over fences last season after a promising start and had a (second) wind operation over the summer; might have needed the run when fifth of eight in handicap hurdle at Aintree four weeks ago; needs to step up markedly on that form to make an impact here but it's possible.

Form & Verdict

Has rapidly developed into a smart chaser, impressing with his jumping when scoring with plenty to spare in a 2m4f Newcastle handicap (good to soft) a fortnight ago; has won on heavy; 9lb rise doesn't look enough to stop him with further progress very much on the cards.

Second-season chaser who shaped with some encouragement in Paddy Power Gold Cup at Cheltenham (2m4f, soft) on reappearance but has disappointed twice since; slipping in the weights but needs to rediscover his spark.

Won emphatically at Haydock (2m5f, soft) and Newcastle (2m4f, good to soft) last season and looked ready for a step up in distance when a never-nearer sixth of 14 to Stage Star in the 2m4f Paddy Power here on reappearance; bred to relish today's extra yardage (he's out of a half-sister to the high-class staying jumper Time For Rupert) and looks a fascinating candidate at the bottom of the weights.
