Dual winner at Stratford last summer (2m6f/3m2f), latterly off today's mark; drops in grade after respectable fourth at Wincanton (3m, good to soft) on Boxing Day and will be suited by the forecast good ground here; high on the list.

Has done well over hurdles since returning from a year out and he's a superior chaser as his respective ratings confirm; on a good mark on form as recent as last year and needs considering; good ground is ideal.

Much better known as a chaser but returned from one-year absence with narrow win at Southwell (2m4f, good) last month and also ran very well when second at Stratford (2m6f, good) 18 days ago; respected.

Form & Verdict

Bumper winner and narrowly beaten in a handicap hurdle in January off 2lb higher; latest no-show was over fences in new headgear so best to put a line through that; could go well if taking to the new cheekpieces.

Sole win came in a Ffos Las bumper in April 2022; competitive over hurdles, but yet to prove his worth as a chaser (0-2); has undergone more wind surgery since finishing fourth of eight (beaten 30l) over C&D in January; early days for current trainer Stuart Edmunds.

Form & Verdict

Hat-trick on the Flat last summer over staying trips and he wasn't overly troubled to justify a short price on his final run in a handicap hurdle at Huntingdon (2m4f, good); likely to go well again off just 4lb higher.
