C&D scorer who wasn't disgraced from 5lb out of the handicap when fourth of five back here eight days ago; he can race off his proper mark now so merits serious consideration.

Form & Verdict

Dual hurdle winner here and was having his first chase start at this venue when landing a handicap over this trip (good to soft) three weeks ago; raised 8lb but still the one to beat for a yard in fine form.

Won four times at favourite course Kelso last year (2m1f, good to soft/soft) and is just 2lb above his last winning mark; however, he's been well beaten over this C&D and at Musselburgh the last twice.

Enjoyed productive 2023, winning four 2m1f chases at Kelso (good to soft-soft); will find this easier than latest assignment at Newbury but is away from his happy hunting ground again today and remains on a career-high mark.

Form & Verdict

Headstrong sort who was out of form when last seen in November; well treated if staging a revival back from four months off; yard among the winners.

Has put together a series of solid runs this spring/summer (once under Brian Hughes), the latest when not beaten far at Stratford last month; that took his losing run to 17, however, and others more compelling.

Experienced performer with seven chase wins to his name; in reasonable form in the first half of this season but off since a lesser run at Ayr in October; no great record fresh in recent years.

Form & Verdict

Dual C&D winner in 2021; bit disappointing at Musselburgh when last seen on New Year's Day but this is the first time for nearly two years that his mark has dipped below 120; no surprise if he bounces back to form at a venue which clearly plays to his strengths.

Cedar Hill

11st 10lb

J: Ryan Mania

T: Sandy Thomson

Ended last year with below-par C&D run (bled from the nose) and was beaten when falling over 2m4f here on New Year's Day; needs to get back in the groove but has very good chasing strike-rate (7-25) and his current mark is workable.
