Form & Verdict

Exploited some help from the handicapper when winning twice (once over C&D) at start of this year and remains well treated on older form but last month's Newbury run was a shade disappointing and he needs today's headgear switch to perk him up.

When a 23l third at Newbury (2m, soft) two starts ago he was behind two highly progressive rivals and he continues to drop down the weights, but positive performances have been scarce this season and he was tailed off at Sandown (1m7f, soft) last time.

Has won six times over fences but seems to have developed his own ideas about the game and looks a difficult ride these days; below form this term on both British starts on heavy; latest outing was his best show this season but he needs to better that.

Form & Verdict

Very smart novice hurdler for Nicky Henderson during 2018-19 and began chasing career with two wins the following season (2m3f/2m5f); pulled up when returning from mammoth absence in Grade 2 chase for new stable in January and not an easy horse to weigh up at present but is in much calmer waters today and will be very dangerous if still as good as he was.

J: Dylan Johnston

T: Sam Thomas

Grade 2 winner over hurdles/fences in his younger days but career got interrupted by a mammoth absence; 0-7 for current yard and it's hard to envisage him winning this hot contest aged ten, despite having course form (runner-up in lower grade over 2m4f here in October).

Smart in 2019 (acted on heavy going) before a long absence; way below that standard nowadays, nevertheless taking second of 16 in a 2m4f handicap hurdle at Cheltenham in October but he's not quite matched that since in two chases or a handicap hurdle; others preferred.

Back from yet another absence to finish second of 16 in a 2m4f handicap hurdle at Cheltenham in October, since when he's come up short in two handicap chases (2m4f/3m1f); he's not without a squeak on that comeback effort and Dylan Johnston's 7lb claim is something for nothing.

Form & Verdict

Three-time chase winner (once over C&D) who looked as good as ever when third on seasonal debut at Wetherby (1m7f, soft) at Christmas; disappointed in next chase but proved his wellbeing with easy novice hurdle win 12 days ago (first-time cheekpieces) and returns to fences on a workable mark.

Very useful triple chase winner (peak RPR of 151) who had no trouble taking advantage of a golden opportunity in a novice hurdle at Market Rasen (2m, good to soft) last month; wasn't at his best over fences last time but he's still lightly raced over hurdles and is a major payer back in this sphere.

Yet to win this season and doesn't tend to find a huge amount at the business end of his races nowadays but ran fairly well when third to Not Available over C&D (good) in February and continues to slip down the weights.

Record of 2-6 over fences, the latest success off 2lb higher (albeit in weak race) last March; not disgraced in the Castleford Chase at Wetherby last time; this Ditcheat raider is worthy of respect back down in grade, with trainer having won this race in 2017, 2018 and 2020.
