Denied close home by Vetoncall over 3m here in November (good), but Huntingdon win latest was due reward for his overall consistency; 2lb badly in under penalty for that, but stamina proven up to 3m4f at least.

J: Daryl Jacob

Came good for Sarah Humphrey with two wins in March, the latter gained in small-field C&D event (soft); now 2lb below that mark and both his 3m runs here last month were respectable; probably won't be far way.

Lightly raced and none too consistent, so maybe not that surprising he followed up his defeat of Le Tueur over 3m here in November (good) with a heavy loss last time; untried beyond an extended 3m1f.

J: Adam Wedge

T: Evan Williams

Returned from long absence with encouraging hurdle run here in November but this regressive veteran was pulled up over C&D (albeit on heavy ground) when returned to chasing last month and it's hard to tell whether he'll be in the right mood today; swaps cheekpieces for refitted visor; tongue-tie on for first time.

10st 13lb

J: Adam Wedge

T: Evan Williams

First start for 17 months when second of six over C&D (soft) in November; failed to back that up 12 days later; those runs were over hurdles but he had plenty of chase experience in previous seasons and he's thrown in if judged on the best of those efforts in 2019 and 2020; some headgear returns and he ran well (won) in some in only the first of four attempts.

Off since August 2021 but connections have persevered; boasts strong credentials in today's context having powered home off today's mark in a Stratford 3m4f chase last time (good); big player if fully wound up.

Won a division of this race two years ago (last time he ran over hurdles) and also scored over fences later that summer; pulled up in two chases this spring after a long absence; too many doubts for now.

All three wins have been on good ground, the most recent over a similar trip at Stratford in 2021, when on this mark; achieved nothing on his only run since, at Fakenham (3m5f, soft) last month; has to prove he retains his ability but nicely treated if back to best.
