Form & Verdict

Good handicap chaser on his day; campaigned mostly in veterans' events since late 2020; has left it very late to go hunter chasing (now a 13yo) but starts off in a weak race and is the main threat to Bob And Co.

Respectable thirds to kick off the campaign and his jumping was a bit ragged when well beaten at Sandown (third the two previous seasons); likely to give a good account if more on the ball this afternoon.

J: Lorcan Murtagh

T: Harry Fry

Third in the last two runnings of this race, both in the mud; has made a solid start to this campaign and, although needing to raise his game again, he enters the reckoning off his lowest mark since 2015, 11lb lower than he was 12 months ago.

T: Harry Derham

Five-time hunter chase winner, taking the notable scalp of Billaway at the 2021 Punchestown festival; travelling as well as anything when unseating three out in this two years ago and one of the market leaders when departing early last season (without regular hood, as again is the case); getting on in years and he lacks a warm-up race this time, but hard to dismiss.

Form & Verdict

Bumper/point winner who is 0-12 over hurdles; much younger than his two rivals and may be capable of improvement now switched to chasing but faces a stiff task on ratings; usual headgear removed.
