Form & Verdict

Often front-runs but ridden with restraint the last twice and he came through to win with a nice bit in hand last week at Ascot (2m1f, good to soft); penalised accordingly and doesn't always produce his 'A' game, but clearly a contender if he does.

Has ups and downs but he won all three completions last season (2m1f-2m3f, including on soft); slow to get going this campaign but he's better treated now and his second of five finishers at Plumpton ten days ago was a step in the right direction; needs another, rather larger one today.

Five-time chase winner, including two quite valuable events last April (2m1f/2m3f); back on a good mark now and will be fine on today's ground but has looked out of sorts this season (three runs) and needs a revival.

Form & Verdict

Four wins over fences in 2021 (all on good ground) included a Grade 2; struggling to recapture that form but the ground went against him on his return from a break at Kempton and, with the yard now in good nick, a revival is not out of the question.

Not as good as he was over fences but remains capable of useful chase form; didn't really fire here last month but still looks interesting off his lower hurdle mark; best on good ground but handles soft.

Form & Verdict

All very straightforward when making all over C&D (good) in February, opening chase account at the fourth attempt; unable to dominate in Class 1 at Newbury since and dropped out tamely; this looks a better fit.

Finished behind Flegmatik in major 3m event here last month but kept on in the latter stages and wasn't entirely disgraced; shaped well at Newbury (2m6f, good to soft) the time before and remains of interest; last two wins at about 2m4f; fighting chance off bottom weight.

Won at Leicester in February (2m4f, good; same mark) when wearing this visor for the second time and trip/ground feasible excuses since then; should have no excuses this time.

Has found it tough since running so well in top novice company last season and has little margin for error off this high a mark; still merits consideration with his undoubted class and his penultimate effort was okay.

Form & Verdict

Very useful chaser when the ground isn't too soft and he's only gone up 2lb for winning narrowly at Wincanton (2m4f, good) where he jumped better than the second; goes well fresh so the subsequent break bodes well.
