Triple chase winner in 2021, on good to firm and good, most recently over 3m on this track; missed last year and had a tough task on return at Kempton before good to soft might not have been ideal next time; had wind surgery since; too soon to give up on him.

Form & Verdict

Won at Taunton (2m7f, soft) just over a year ago and the best of last season's form came here when second over 3m2f (good) in January; below that level since though and has something to prove.

J: Sam Twiston-Davies

T: Ian Williams

Pulled up over fences at Ludlow last month but left that run miles behind when exploiting lower hurdle mark over this C&D (good to soft) a fortnight ago; also effective on soft ground; having gone up 5lb he remains well treated on this year's best chase form and holds leading claims.

11st 9lb

J: Sam Twiston-Davies

He's well treated on chase form this May/June and perhaps he needed the run at Ludlow last month (pulled up); however, he has to leave that performance miles behind and all of his best efforts have come over fences.

Form & Verdict

Bumper/hurdle winner who made it 3-4 over fences when keeping on well to land a Worcester handicap (2m7f, good to soft) in September; 5lb higher on his return but he's open to more progress; respected.

J: Nick Slatter

Following wind surgery he was close up in a first-time visor at Stratford but his profile is a patchy one and he never looked that interested last time at Market Rasen when the blinkers returned; cheekpieces did nothing for him when tried before.

J: Nick Slatter

T: David Killahena & Graeme McPherson

Following wind surgery he was a close third in a first-time visor at Stratford last month; he's a contender on that form but his profile this year is patchy and he was well beaten at Ayr last time; blinkers return today (no obvious positive effect previously); others are more solid.

Form & Verdict

Possibilities if returning to his early-season form last campaign but now has to bounce back from two non-completions; the return of cheekpieces (tried blinkers last time) is a positive and he's got himself well handicapped.

Inconsistent 10yo who was pulled up at Bangor just 18 days ago, but that was a rare run over hurdles and he's shown some good chase form this season (including 3m5f win at Cartmel); not discounted now back over fences.
