Beat An Marcach by 47l in two-finisher chase here (3m2f, good to firm) in May but has mixed record over fences and was well beaten at Market Rasen last time; not an easy one to predict.

Opened account with hard-fought hurdling success at Worcester (2m4f, good) in July, after a break, and both subsequent runs were perfectly respectable; has a significant role to play if he takes well to fences on today's chasing debut.

Winning hurdler who has finished runner-up in both chase runs and might have won at Southwell last time (2m4f, good) but for a late mistake; the cheekpieces tried there appeared to work; soft ground would temper enthusiasm.

Opened hurdling account with hard-fought success at Worcester (2m4f, good) in July, after a break, and made good start to chasing career when second at Fontwell (2m5f, good) last month; can pose a threat if the addition of cheekpieces has any positive effect.

Built upon promising chase debut when winning comfortably by 6l at Worcester (2m4f, good) last month; disappointing favourite when well-held fourth over same C&D three weeks later but will be hard to beat if back on song here.

Form & Verdict

Regressive 9yo who is yet to add to his slow-ground win in Ireland in 2021 and achieved very little when remote second to Toad Of Toad Hall here (3m2f, good to firm) in May; arguably ran better than bare form suggests when last of four at Cartmel (3m1f, heavy) in July but remains a difficult horse to enthuse over.

Form & Verdict

Just did enough to make winning chase debut off today's mark at Ludlow (2m4f, good to soft) last November; not in same form this season, though, and the addition of cheekpieces (retained) didn't appear to help much last time; needs to up his game.
