Form & Verdict

In good form over fences and hurdles this year, winning three times; creditable second off 1lb lower in valuable Cartmel chase (2m5f, good to soft) in July on latest British visit and should not mind the slower ground here; major player.

A multiple winner in Ireland for Gordon Elliott but he ended his time there out of form and has been below his best both starts for his current yard, a never-dangerous fourth over 2m5f here on the latter occasion; more is required despite a falling mark.

Form & Verdict

2-6 during first season over fences, the latter win gained by a wide margin over C&D (soft) in April; it's hard to know what that form is worth but he was raised only 2lb and has strong claims if tuned up after five-month break.

Won from the front at Ayr (3m, soft; beat Marown by 6.5l) in December to make it 3-9 over fences; couldn't lead when disappointing three months ago; if getting to the front he's not without hope of staying there.

Returned to form with front-running win at Ayr (3m, soft) in December and is now 3-9 over fences; should be fine on this right-handed track but latest 7lb rise demands more from him and he may not be allowed an uncontested lead this time.

Form & Verdict

Off the mark over fences with ready win at Ayr (2m, heavy) in January and lost out only by a neck in quite valuable series final at Carlisle (2m, heavy) in March; has fitness to prove after six-month break but could have untapped potential over this new trip.

Form & Verdict

Left clear at final fence to win small-field C&D chase in June and didn't run badly when third here this month, having been messed about by a loose horse in the straight; remains very well handicapped on older hurdling form but can sometimes harm his chance by racing too freely.

Left clear at final fence to open chasing account in small field here last summer (3m, good to soft); another fair run here in September, given he was hampered, but tailed off on either side of that (hurdles/fences) and couldn't be sure what to expect back from a break.

Form & Verdict

Gamely won quite valuable series final at Carlisle (2m4f, heavy) off much-reduced mark in March and a subsequent 3lb rise ought to be manageable but he's no longer the force of old and does not have a compelling record when fresh.

Verdict

Lucinda Russell’s two second-season chasers Readysteadybeau and Netywell (preferred in that order) should have more to offer but Gordon Elliott’s versatile and consistent 8yo ARCTIC AMBITION (nap) is probably still on a workable mark and may well be the answer.[Chris Wilson]
