The winner of two small-field hunter chases at Ludlow this year, latterly proving too strong for Espoir De Guye; that form, and the balance of his handicap exploits during the past 12 months, strongly hints at limitations at this level.

Won two 3m chases at Bangor in 2022; patchy form since; well treated and capable of going well but needs to bounce back after being pulled up last time.

In fine form at Southwell on last three starts (3m/3m2f, heavy/good to soft), with two wins sandwiching a near-miss; also effective elsewhere and this progressive 8yo could play another leading role.

C&D winner; scored at Hexham (3m, good to soft) last May and is well treated on that form, but he's been pulled up or tailed off on all six starts since; a dramatic revival is required; first-time visor replaces blinkers.

Won twice over fences in first half of last year, including here (3m, soft); well handicapped on that form but he's struggled since his last win last May and has plenty to prove now back over hurdles.

Scored off this mark at Hexham (3m) last May; badly out of form since, last of seven runners over C&D most recently; hopes of revival are pinned on change of headgear.

Showed some fair form over fences last term, notably when second in a Uttoxeter handicap off 17lb higher in December 2022 (3m, heavy); pulled up on all three starts this season, the latest when having first run after a wind op when headgear was tried (didn't jump well); no headgear here but hard to fancy despite good mark.

Maiden; ran well at Uttoxeter (3m, heavy) on chase debut but form has gone downhill since, pulled up in both runs this term; combination of wind surgery and first-time visor needs to help.
