Built upon promising chase/stable debut when eased-down winner at Exeter (3m, heavy) in January, form that has been very well advertised by the runner-up since; pulled up soon after a jumping error here a fortnight ago but remains very much of interest.

Acts on any ground; largely progressive chase form includes a notable 3m1f handicap win at Wincanton last November; disappointing at Sandown in February; held when falling at the last at Kempton later that month; blinkers used then are discarded now.

3-6 over fences; useful form in a couple of notable handicaps this term, winning at Wincanton (3m1f, good to soft) then fourth at Ascot (3m, good); may still have further progress in him; major contender.

Form & Verdict

Soundly beaten in first two chases but came from off the pace to win at Ffos Las (2m, soft) in January, despite looking rather dicey at several of the fences; comes with some risk attached but, on the other hand, he's open to significant further improvement if more fluent this time.

Had wind surgery (his third) since last run and takes a drop back in class; fairly useful on his day but is more exposed than some of these rivals and doesn't look especially well treated in this field; both chase wins remain off lower marks.

Built upon previous promise when bolting up at Haydock (2m, soft) in November, and heavy ground may have been too much back there last month; clearly very talented when things click but this is a much tougher race than the one he won two starts ago and he needs to prove he's up to the task.

Bettered underwhelming seasonal/chase debut and ran big race in defeat when second at Wetherby (3m, soft) 11 days ago; competes off same mark here and ought to cope with the drop back in trip; commands respect.
