Form & Verdict

Four hurdle wins but 0-11 as a chaser and essentially disappointing now; second of three at Warwick last month and will need better to take this; hood (on for first time) replaces cheekpieces.

Won twice over fences last summer, but held on his return to the Flat after 193 days off here (1m4f) 11 days ago; may have needed it, but still has enough to prove.

J: Callum Hutchinson

T: Anthony Charlton

Useful jumper who won 2m handicap chases at Worcester and Newton Abbot last summer; well beaten in an AW Flat handicap at the start of 2023 but he was quite useful in this sphere at the start of his career, including an AW novice win; possible he'll be using this a prep for a return to jumps but betting perhaps the best guide to expectations.

J: Harry Reed

T: Milton Harris

Took a while to open his account over fences but has bagged two four-runner chases this summer, latterly over C&D (good) 11 days ago despite almost refusing to race and giving the others a big headstart; not without risk, but a 1lb rise ought to be manageable if he gets away on terms today.

Progressive chaser and took his record over fences to 5-11 with career-best effort at Aintree 12 days ago; up 6lb but lots to like.

0-4 over hurdles in 2021; successful five times over fences since and has place claims on the best of that form; out of sorts last July-November and now returns from five-month break.

Form & Verdict

Pulled up in all four hurdle starts last season (for Nicky Henderson) after a long absence, the latest in the Kempton race won by Elios D'Or; chase debut on first start for this yard and takes a real leap of faith.

Form & Verdict

Put in his place in stronger company at Newton Abbot latest but had earlier won at Stratford, in a tight finish; three of his five chase wins have come over C&D so every reason to expect another solid effort.

Alighted upon a moderate class 3 at Stratford in June (2m1f, good) and only 1lb higher tonight; record of 1132222124 around here, but poor jumping display over C&D latest needs a little bit of forgiving.
