Form & Verdict

Taken his point form to a new level this season; can jump to the right but he was only 11-2 when unseating at the seventh fence in the big hunter chase at Aintree's National meeting; expect a positive ride dropped to this trip and he's a big player.

Kept on well to beat Caryto Des Brosses in this race last year, despite jumping badly right throughout, and was 11l too good for same rival in Garthorpe point (3m, soft) in February; beaten odds-on favourite in latest point but went down fighting behind a useful rival; good chance.

Form & Verdict

Twice runner-up at this meeting in 3m2f events and, while he often travels strongly in his races, there have to be reservations about him at 2m, a trip he's never tried before (2m4f winner); should still run well.

Long in the tooth now and not quite the force of old but coped well with drop to 2m when clear second to Fier Jaguen in this race last year (good ground) and returns here after an easy point win two weeks ago; cheekpieces fitted for first time; has a big role to play.

Has twice run well in different races at this meeting and returns here after good second at Cheltenham (2m, good) last month; sure to be suited by today's move back up in trip and has slipped to a good mark; leading contender.

Emerged from off the pace to finish runner-up in this 12 months ago when Rewritetherules was 12l back in third; has won two hunter chases and as many points in the meantime and his Ludlow third (stable debut) was respectable.

Created very good impression on rules return at Taunton (2m7f, soft) in January but is yet to build on that performance, and was just a respectable third at Cheltenham (2m, good) last month; today's move back up in trip ought to suit but he still needs to up his game.

8-21 in points and although 0-20 under rules he has made the frame in his last four starts in hunter chases; likes to be ridden handily and a positive ride around here could make him a serious player in this small field; visor given a go.
