Short-headed by progressive winner at Carlisle (3m2f, good to soft) in December on second chase start and won the North Yorkshire National at Catterick (3m6f, soft) last month; appeared to idle in front last time and a 5lb rise could underestimate this unexposed 7yo's performance; key player.

Clear with Anglers Crag when short-head runner-up at Carlisle (3m2f, good to soft) on last month's second chase start and the winner followed up on Tuesday; this unexposed 7yo brings potential to today's marathon trip and could play a leading role, if handling the ground (unraced on soft).

Form & Verdict

Came from off the pace to win six-runner Hereford bumper (good ground) for Henry Daly in February and changed hands for £46,000 soon afterwards; that form isn't anything to get too excited about but he ought to have a future over jumps.

Form & Verdict

Began hurdling career with two very promising runs towards end of last year, making the frame over 2m3f at Ascot (good to soft) and Doncaster (good); blotted his copybook when inexplicably running out at third-last flight at Doncaster in January and not seen again since but has strong claims here if he behaves.
