Five-time hurdle winner at up to 2m2f; respectable front-running third at Sedgefield (2m1f, soft) and reportedly unsuited by stepping up to 2m3f on heavy ground when pulled up at Catterick; better expected here but others are more intriguing.

Only win came in a maiden event at Warwick a year ago; not beaten too far there last month but will need more to win this; often makes the running but that option unlikely to be available.

J: Lorcan Murtagh

T: Harry Fry

Failed to beat a rival on his chase debut here last month but he's a four-time hurdle winner who went close here (2m4f, good to soft) on his return in November; looks interesting on that form but he's untried beyond 2m4f and this is a new challenge back over hurdles; mixed messages.

Form & Verdict

Placed in his last three starts, without really suggesting he was recovering his best form; chances here may depend on whether first-time cheekpieces can offer some help.

Had useful hurdle form, including on soft, for previous yards; has needed excuses for latest two defeats following an encouraging return to the AW but he has possibilities off this mark back on turf on his hurdle form; refitted blinkers replace cheekpieces; not ruled out.

Always towards rear when tried in cheekpieces two starts ago and was left behind when pace lifted in home straight here (2m4f; no headgear) last month; can't be supported with much confidence today but is now 12lb lower than when very respectable fourth at Taunton (2m3f, soft) in January.
