He's not easy to win with, having posted just one victory from his last 21 starts; however, he ran well when third in a handicap at Leicester (2m6f, soft) in January and holds stand-out claims if repeating that form today.

Goes particularly well at Carlisle and was off the mark for the season when winning there last time (3m, heavy); finished last of five at this meeting in 2022, but that was over 2m4f and is better over this trip.

0-7 over fences but runner-up on four of those occasions and his reappearance over C&D was pleasing; fared less well at Ayr when tried in cheekpieces and he could go well should he fancy the new visor.

11yo who is 0-6 over fences but has run some good races in this sphere, most recently runner-up at Carlisle (3m, soft) in November on his reappearance; having travelled well he could benefit from this drop back in distance and he's one to consider in first-time cheekpieces.

Not always the most fluent of jumpers but has four wins to his credit this season, from 2m-2m7f, the latest at Kelso last time; best on good ground; a possible despite career-high mark.

In career-best form in recent months, including very respectable fifth on slower-than-ideal ground in C&D Summer Plate in July; bumped into revitalised subsequent winner when second at Perth (3m, soft; first-time cheekpieces) 19 days ago; one to consider.
