Form & Verdict

Pushed last weekend's high-profile Sandown winner Crambo close on his bumper debut at Huntingdon (soft) and ran another good race behind a decent horse on his return there on Boxing Day; matter of time before he gets his head in front but he's found another warm little novice here.

Won on soft ground in March, unraced on heavy; upped to 3m this season for front-running novice wins at Southwell (good) and Cheltenham (good to soft); in the latter he rallied well to regain the lead in the final strides, so looks a thorough stayer at the trip; needs further improvement in this handicap but has more to give with serious stamina tests.

Bought for £100,000 after winning a 3m Irish point; couldn't justify favouritism on his rules debut at Ffos Las (2m4f, soft) but he probably bumped into a very nice prospect and was clear of the remainder; clear claims here.

Won on chase debut at Huntingdon (2m4f, good) in November and close second in warm little race at Leicester (2m4f, heavy) in December; beaten about 8l when fourth at Leicester (2m6f, soft) last time and improvement is needed, but he's lightly raced and the winner has franked that latest form.

Form & Verdict

Quite closely matched with Butch through one formline and, in typical McCain fashion, he was positively ridden when justifying favouritism in a Newcastle maiden (2m1f, good to soft); the penalty spells danger in this stronger race.

Won a maiden hurdle at Newcastle (2m1f, good to soft) last February and he reappeared with a promising second on his chase debut at Carlisle (2m4f, soft); he may appreciate this return to hurdles having struggled over fences the last twice, but has something to prove regarding current form.

Form & Verdict

Successful chaser last season and has continued the good work back over hurdles this campaign, notably when winning a C&D handicap (heavy) with ease here in December; never counted in a Cheltenham Grade 2 (2m4f) last time but he can be forgiven that; major shout returned to novice company, even with a penalty.
