Placed in five of six chasing efforts but record now stands at 0-17; should strike lucky at some stage but tends to look vulnerable in the later stages of his races; on the premises again, no doubt.

Generally in good form this season, and rallied well to open his account at Bangor (2m4f, soft) a fortnight ago; will be fine on today's faster ground and is evidently in good heart but his poor record on right-handed tracks is a worry here.

Mostly struggled last season but wind surgery seems to have done the trick; third over hurdles two starts ago and won in fair style back over fences at Worcester latest; 4lb rise no great hardship and live contender.

Has not looked back since undergoing wind surgery and it was all fairly straightforward when beating a reliable type at Hereford a month ago (2m5f, good); bumped up 7lb for that but coped with testing ground in France and he makes plenty of appeal.

Two-time French chase winner who has turned a big corner since returning from wind surgery, winning his second race of 2023 over C&D (good) in November; patiently ridden when close up off this 4lb higher mark at Doncaster and fully entitled to be in the mix once again.

Probably fortunate to win at Uttoxeter last month but the upside is that he's only gone up 1lb; effective on good and soft ground and ought to make a good bid to enhance a 2-10 chasing record; usually held up.

Well handicapped on some of last season's form but had fortune on his side when winning at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good to soft) in September and has been safely held twice since; should be fine over today's trip but needs to up his game; tongue-tie fitted.
