Form & Verdict

Five-time hurdle winner (good/good to soft) for Nicky Henderson; not beaten far when last of four at Stratford (2m1f, good) last month on second chase start and has had a wind op since; however, his claims aren't compelling on this season's evidence and testing ground would be a worry.

Unraced over hurdles since 2018 and well beaten over fences on final two runs last season; however, he's very well handicapped on last season's best chase form and this two-time course winner reappears in a race featuring his trainer in the title; can go well fresh; interesting contender.

Front-runner who won twice over C&D (good to soft/soft) in early 2022 and was progressive last season, which concluded with a win at Catterick (2m3f, soft) in January; reappeared with fair third at Hexham (2m4f, soft) 16 days ago and could show the benefit of that outing today; on the shortlist.
