Form & Verdict

Well suited by the step up to 2m7f when clear winner at Worcester (soft) in October and is still quite lightly raced but capitulated very quickly when pulled up on last two outings and looks risky at present.

His third win over hurdles when a 3l winner over C&D last May (good to firm; won on soft); lost his way a little afterwards but could be better for a break and James Smith takes away a useful 7lb.

T: Jonjo O’Neill

Launched chasing career with two fairly respectable runs on soft ground this summer (3m2f/2m7f); needs to take a step forward today but is now 2lb lower than when winning a fast-ground hurdle in May and may benefit from the addition of cheekpieces; interesting.

0-8 under all codes but didn't run badly when midfield at Kempton (2m5f, good; first-time cheekpieces) this month, having raced wide; another 3lb lower here and remains unexposed over this sort of trip; not ruled out.

Three-time French chase winner who was runner-up over hurdles at Southwell (3m, soft) last November on his British debut and bounced back to form with 6l win at Huntingdon (3m1f, good to soft) last month; a 6lb rise isn't harsh and he's firmly in calculations.

In poor form since beating three rivals at Hereford (3m1f, good to firm) in October and has a lot to prove at present but getting back on good ground will be very much in his favour, and he's too well handicapped to ignore.

Has something to prove regarding his current form having failed to shine this season; however, this two-time novice hurdle winner (3m1f/2m7f, good to soft/good) could appreciate the return to hurdles (from fences), and he's not written off for his top stable.

Dual chase winner in France but has performed poorly in his two runs over British fences, latterly at Ludlow in November; on his return to hurdling he slipped up during the early stages; ground will be fine and he'll probably stay the trip, but he needs to turn things around.

Finished first three times in a row last summer/autumn, albeit demoted to second on first occasion and beating only one rival last time; returns from seven-month break with trip/ground suitable but but will need to hit the ground running to have any chance off current mark.

Sauntered clear to get off the mark at Uttoxeter (2m7f, good) in this month last year but the value of that form is open to question (only four flights were jumped), and we haven't seen him since his Worcester fifth a few days later.
