Form & Verdict

Won a Class 3 handicap at Sandown (2m4f, heavy; RPR 134) for Dan Skelton in February 2021 but he's been lightly raced since and has struggled in two hunter chases for new yard this year; has questions to answer and he needs a major revival.

Formerly decent for Dan Skelton and returned to form from out of the blue when winning a three-runner 2m5f hunter chase at Newton Abbot (good; has won on heavy); posted a decent RPR of 127 so needs considering back in a handicap.

Form & Verdict

Prolific winner over jumps in 2021 and 2022; best effort in hunter chases this year when second to notable rival at Wincanton (2m4f, good) in March; didn't really fire over same trip at Ludlow (good to soft) last time but this return to fast ground is a positive and has claims if he can recapture his penultimate form.

Form & Verdict

Useful chaser at his best and he still retains most of his ability; has won hunter chases in two of his last three runs including when making all to land the odds at Kempton (2mf, good to soft) last time; has to concede 8lb to his three rivals here but he's a major player again.

Two soft-ground wins earlier in career but minor form on that surface now and unraced on heavy, while his front-running win over three rivals in this race last year came on good ground; can be involved if he does cope with the surface.

Useful in the past; opened his hunter chase account at Leicester (2m6f, good) in February and subsequent odds-on defeat is better than it looked on the day (winner franked the form next time); respected.
