Form & Verdict

Won off 1lb higher at Ffos Las (2m, good to soft) last February and has run several good races since but his form slumped with a pulled-up effort at Uttoxeter (2m4f, soft) last month; has something to prove again after that and he's well into the veteran stage; cheekpieces reapplied.

Nothing like the force of old but is effective on heavy ground and was clearcut winner off today's mark at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) in April; needs to bounce back from last month's low-key reappearance run but still enters calculations.

C&D winner who regained winning form in returning cheekpieces at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) last month, though he may have been fortunate to do so (only danger fell two out); 3lb higher, but the return to this trip is probably a plus and he holds frame claims at least.

Made a good start over fences for Gary Moore with two wins at Lingfield in November (2m4f/2m); disappointing in next two runs but he got back on track with a second at Warwick (2m4f, soft) two weeks ago; was beaten just 2l behind an improver in that race and he's respected off unchanged mark.

Not beaten far when third of four at Doncaster (2m3f, soft) last month and remains very well handicapped on last season's form but has basically become disappointing; needs latest headgear switch to perk him up.

Form & Verdict

Good second at right-handed tracks (2m4f/2m5f) on his first two chase attempts, despite jumping left; proved rather disappointing (well-held fourth) at left-handed Doncaster last month but this point winner is still lightly raced and he should have more to offer in this sphere; not ruled out.

Hurdles winner who has finished runner-up in three of his five completed starts over fences, including when beaten a neck at Ludlow (2m4f, good to soft) three weeks ago (clear of the third); 4lb rise not the end of the world, though he still has to prove himself on soft ground or worse.

Seemingly back in good form when third at Plumpton (2m3f, soft) in January and is probably worth another crack at this sort of trip but didn't travel with much zest when well-held fourth at Lingfield last month and is not one to rely upon.

Form & Verdict

Kept on well when scoring over 3m at Ffos Las (good to soft) in October but things have not gone well in his last five runs; was brought down early on here (2m3f) last time but that was after two tailed-off efforts and he has plenty to prove; hood worn in last two starts is removed.
