J: Richard Patrick

Recorded his third chase win when scoring at Hereford (2m, good) in January and he's continued in good form with placed efforts there in his last two runs; still looks feasibly treated on his best form and he should be in the mix again.

Form & Verdict

Seven-time chase winner (once over C&D); very much on the downgrade now but proved some ability remains when second at Newton Abbot (2m, good to soft) last month and has good claims if in similar form again here.

Seven-time chase winner (twice over C&D); out of form in early part of last season and returned from layoff with another disappointing effort in April but he's very well handicapped now and can't be ruled out; raced mainly on good ground but has form on soft/heavy.

W: 12st 0lb

9 yo Gelding

Form & Verdict

Returned from eight-month break with pretty good hurdle run in June but two lesser efforts have followed and he looks somewhat risky now back over fences and with first-time cheekpieces tried.

Seemingly boosted by new cheekpieces when close third on return to chasing at Stratford (2m1f, good to soft) last month but was behind Iron Heart when well beaten over 2m4f here 17 days ago and cannot be relied upon.

Cheekpieces were on for the first time when a close third on his return to fences at Stratford 12 days ago (2m1f, good to soft); entitled to be winning races off this mark.

Form & Verdict

Free-going front-runner with 3-7 record over fences, the latest win gained at Sedgefield (2m1f, good to soft) last autumn; good third at Aintree (2m, good) in June, after a layoff, and could be hard to catch here.

Form & Verdict

Course regular who is not as good as he was and does not always find a huge amount when the chips are down but was second over 2m3f here on his last two outings (good/good to soft) and will be fine over today's shorter trip; probably won't be far away.
