Form & Verdict

Has two hunter chase wins to his credit this year (2m6f/2m5f) and was far from disgraced when 6l-fifth at 80-1 in the Aintree Foxhunters' last time (2m5f, good to soft); looks the one to beat.

80-1 when a close fifth in this last year and that was after making a horlicks of The Chair; returns on the back of just about his best form yet when third at Cheltenham last month (soft; just over 5l behind Its On The Line), having been in the firing line throughout; the extended 3m2f ultimately found him out and he's a strong contender with stamina assured back at this trip.

J: Mr Toby McCain-Mitchell

T: Miss Hannah Roach

By no means prolific in points (3-13) but he's 5-7 in hunter chases after taking a winnable race at Hereford in January (2m5f, good to soft); showed that he can mix it at this level of competition when not beaten far into fifth (staying on) in last season's hunter chase at Aintree (2m5f good to soft; made bad mistake at The Chair); perhaps relying on some of these being off their game if he's to win, but is no forlorn hope over a longer trip that he might need these days.

Close behind Bennys King in the Foxhunters' at Aintree (2m5f, good to soft) and two good wins ended the campaign; started the season with a cakewalk at Badbury Rings and he may have found soft ground against him when pulled up in November; bang there on best form.

Form & Verdict

Formerly a useful chaser for Gordon Elliott, winning twice at Perth last July (3m, good); fell three out when in the lead on point/stable debut but pulled up when favourite last time (soft); better ground should suit, but a bit to prove now.

Fit from points when fair third of five in 2m2f Kelso hunter chase a week ago; this longer trip should suit, so he's no forlorn hope.

Four times Flat winner at up to 1m6f; only pointing success was in a three-runner restricted in March last year; creditable second to Ex S'Elance (has since won two low-grade handicaps chases) in a point in February, but this looks a bit tougher.
