Form & Verdict

Completed a hat-trick of wins in handicap chases on good/good to firm last summer, the first over C&D in May and the third off a pound lower than today when returning after a wind operation in October; fared less well on last two runs and now back after a second wind operation.

Made all to land a hat-trick in small-field handicaps at 2m5f/2m6f on good or faster ground; got pestered up front when pulled up over 3m1f at Hereford on latest outing, though; even if this pans out more favourably, ground conditions are a concern.

Suited by good/firmer; scored twice over 2m5f in May then had wind surgery; had little to spare off 2lb lower at Stratford (2m6f; again made all) last month but still commands respect, being 3-3 this season.

Form & Verdict

Began last season in very good form, notably when winning at Kempton (3m, good), but was pulled up on Boxing Day and also disappointed in May, after a break; returns from latest break on good mark but with some questions to answer.

Last season started well before he lost his way; however, he does seem best when fresh and was returning from 153 days off when going close at Stratford in October (2m6f, good); over this more suitable trip, after a break, he has to be of interest.

Form & Verdict

Triple chase winner in 2022 (2m7f-3m) but not in same form this year, the last twice over hurdles; had wind surgery last month and swaps blinkers for first-time visor on this return to chasing but needs a revival.

Following wind surgery he was close up in a first-time visor at Stratford but his profile is a patchy one and he never looked that interested last time at Market Rasen when the blinkers returned; cheekpieces did nothing for him when tried before.

Following wind surgery he was a close third in a first-time visor at Stratford last month; he's a contender on that form but his profile this year is patchy and he was well beaten at Ayr last time; blinkers return today (no obvious positive effect previously); others are more solid.

Sprightly teenager who has won three times over C&D on good ground this season; ought to give another good account today but he's on a fairly tough mark now and this is more competitive than the races he usually contests.

3-7 during first season over fences, with all the wins gained at Plumpton (2m3f-3m1f); not seen since his second of four there in March but will be suited by today's ground and can feature if ready to roll; blinkers the headgear of choice here.
