Form & Verdict

Made it 3-3 since stepped up to 3m when digging deep at Doncaster (good) and did well to win at all given how keenly he raced; only 3lb higher and this shorter trip is unlikely to inconvenience.

Completed a hat-trick in April (middle leg here) and this 12yo returned to winning ways at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good) in July; however, he's finished fifth the last twice and needs something extra today.

Sprightly 12yo who won four times last season and added to his tally in similar race to this over C&D (good) at end of July; may not find it easy to swallow latest 6lb rise but ought to give another good account.

Form & Verdict

Highly tried the last twice in Grade 2s and kept digging to finish third at Kelso (2m2f, good to soft) most recently and that's strong form, with the front two not disgraced in the Grade 1 Tolworth earlier this season and the fourth winning a Grade 1 novice chase at Punchestown on Tuesday; looks well handicapped and returning to this longer trip is very much in his favour.

Two wins towards the end of last year from first three hurdle starts (2m/2m4f, good to soft) and went very close on handicap debut at Perth (2m4f, good to soft) in April when last seen; Lucinda Russell excels with chasers and this soft-ground point runner-up could improve now tackling fences.

Form & Verdict

Back in good form when second at Catterick (2m3f, good) but couldn't back up that promise at Ayr; could still have some say should the application of cheekpieces (replacing a hood) help in any way.

Ran well when third in first-time cheekpieces here (2m4f, good to soft) three weeks ago and has claims if judged on that performance but today's shorter trip may not be ideal and he's not one to rely upon heavily; fell at the first over fences here yesterday.

Form & Verdict

His third career win when prevailing narrowly at Wetherby (2m5f, good to soft) on Boxing Day and ran well in his next two races, bumping into a subsequent Cheltenham Festival winner the next time; reportedly ran flat at Uttoxeter most recently but has had a break since then.

In first-time tongue-tie/cheekpieces combination when beating three rivals over 2m3f at Carlisle (heavy) but he was a weakener when the visor was added at Kelso; takes on progressive opposition here and may struggle.

Readily made all in four-runner handicap at Carlisle (2m3f, heavy) 12 days ago in first-time tongue-tie/cheekpieces; the strength of that form is dubious, but he's still 3lb lower than when a fair fourth in this last year (good to soft) and is not ruled out; visor replaces cheekpieces.

Form & Verdict

Runner-up to Envoi Allen in the Champion Bumper of 2019; not reached the heights expected of him since sent over obstacles, winning only a maiden hurdle and a beginners' chase; not the first time he has bled when pulled up in a Leopardstown handicap in February but the ability is there to beat these should the wheels stay on; changed stables but remains in top ownership.

Talented horse but has had more off days than on days; never really fulfilled his immense early promise; started off last season well over fences but ended the season bursting at Punchestown; often runs well fresh so not to be underestimated and the most likely alternative to his stable companion.

Twice below par since making a successful hurdling debut at Cartmel last May (2m6f, good) and goes handicapping on the back of a lengthy absence; risks attached.
