Form & Verdict

Relatively lightly raced 10yo, who recorded his third chase win when scoring at Doncaster (3m, good) in February and he went close behind Cyclop at Newbury last time; nudged up 3lb for that but he still looks on a workable mark and is respected.

Pulled up twice this season but was badly hampered on reappearance and never on an even keel after early mistakes at Warwick last time; far from disgraced over 3m4f here in between; returning to 3m should suit and he's been given a big chance by the handicapper; interesting at likely lengthy odds.

Two wins and a second (to Cyclop) in veterans' chases last season and commands respect on those exploits; badly hampered before pulling up on his reappearance and 3m4f on heavy seemed to stretch him last time at Sandown; it's reasonable to turn a blind eye to both those runs and he could go well at lengthy odds.

Form & Verdict

On dangerous mark and he returned to chasing with a respectable second at Doncaster (3m, good) in February; was well backed that day but he finished 7l behind Boldmere and needs to build on that to make a serious impact here; one of two runners for Alan King.

Hasn't won since the summer of 2021 but he's capable of putting that right and has been close up under Oscar Palmer in his last two races (at about 3m); another with each-way hopes.

Form & Verdict

12yo who is bang in the zone after completing a hat-trick in ultra-game fashion at Newbury (2m7f, soft; Boldmere second) 16 days ago; a 4lb rise puts him on a career-high mark but he's been better than ever this spring and is a versatile type who handles most ground; big player.
