Form & Verdict

His two wins were in Ireland in 2019; close third at Carlisle (3m, good) in October after more than 11 months off but only echoes of that form since and he does not look the percentage call.

Looked as good as ever when beating Special Acceptance to win Haydock veterans' chase (3m1f, good to soft) in April but has become unreliable and was under pressure before unseating rider at third-last fence at Perth in September; not an easy one to predict.

Recorded his third chase win when scoring at Haydock (3m1f, good to soft) in April but he's not easy to predict and was pulled up behind Saint Arvans over C&D last time; was reported to have had an irregular heartbeat in a post-race examination and he needs to bounce back after a short break.

11yo who has won just one of his 28 races and was tailed off at Ludlow latest; however, the blinkers adopted then are replaced with his usual cheekpieces, in which he was running well previously; form of January's Plumpton fourth (3m4f, soft) has worked out very well; he's one to consider.

Veteran who has won only the once, when in first-time cheekpieces in 2020; remains capable on his day and didn't run badly over 3m4f at Plumpton last time when late mistakes didn't help; bit late in the day to be trying new headgear but he's hard to rule out.

Player if he's on a good day, as when winning easily over 3m5f at Lingfield in February; fair fourth next time and forgiven latest as he was 100-1 in the Midlands National; inconsistent but needs a second look.

Has done well since switched to hunter chases for his new yard but his Warwick win (3m, soft) came at the expense of a frustrating horse who looked in command only to stop to nothing on the run-in; heavy ground was no good to this 11yo last time when behind Quintin's Man; placed at best if he's lucky.

Form & Verdict

Blinkers refitted (third time in them) when he surged back to some form for an authoritative win at Chepstow (3m6f, soft) 16 days ago; had only four rivals (Achille finished 10l third) but going back up 3lb is not harsh and he used to be capable of a lot better; yard in very good form.

Smart in his prime but his only win from eight hunter chases this year (under Freddie Gingell) was in a match; however, he is well treated on his best 2022 form and was a respectable second back in a handicap at Lingfield (2m4f, good to soft) on his recent return after 192 days off; looks interesting if he can build on that and this step back up in trip is a positive.

Not as good as he used to be but opened his chase account at Market Rasen (3m, good to soft) in December; two seconds in his other completions in recent months, latest at Wincanton 12 days ago, so he's in the mix.
