Bagged two wins over hurdles last year, including one around here; has made a reasonably good start over fences, reaching the frame on last two starts from three runs so far in this sphere; not entirely convinced by stamina, but today's trip could well be a happy medium and has a lot more to bring to the table than most.

Form & Verdict

Gained a first chase win for former yard in Britain in February; new yard and two big runs in defeat over timber before getting his head back in front over fences at Tramore last month; 9lb higher but would have won by further without a bad mistake at the last and bold bid expected.

Lost his first eight chases but came good at Galway in October (heavy) and followed up in a competitive 3m1f handicap at Cheltenham (soft); should have been fine on the good ground at Ascot (3m) two days before Christmas but he dropped away up the straight; he's better than that.

Initially disappointing over fences but won at Galway (2m6f, heavy) and Cheltenham (3m1f, soft) last two outings; 9lb raise demands more from him (5lb claimer is recruited) but this 6yo probably has more to give.

Consistent sort who has hit the frame in five of his six chase starts this year; still well treated on his hurdle form and he's versatile with regards to ground; looks capable of having a big say.

20-race maiden (0-7 over fences) but bounced back from a couple of poor runs when a distant runner-up at Tramore last month; looks feasibly treated if he can build on that with a new headgear combination.

Long-standing maiden has been placed in three beginners' chases; wouldn't have been far away in Kilbeggan handicap in April when exiting at the last but well held in two subsequent handicaps including the race won by C'est Quelqu'un at Downpatrick last month.
