The cheekpieces triggered improvement when successful in back-to-back Class 4 chases on good ground at Worcester (2m7f) and Southwell (3m); a collective rise of 13lb was a likely factor in him coming up short in a Class 3 last time and now has a bit to prove off this mark.

10st 4lb

J: Danny Gilligan

T: Gordon Elliott

Tailed off over fences at Cheltenham last month and his best form is all on quicker ground than this but he's feasibly treated on some recent chase form if he does handle conditions.

Form & Verdict

Northern Irish challenger who made a successful return to fences at Roscommon (2m5f, heavy) despite her preference for a longer trip and drier ground; a thorough test around here should be up her street.

Five-time winner; three of them this summer, two when bouncing back from sub-standard efforts; needs to do the same here having been pulled-up at Cheltenham last month but capable of doing so.

Form & Verdict

Beaten 17l into fourth in this 12 months ago off a similar mark and has to bounce back from a rare poor effort after finishing tailed off at Cartmel, where good to soft ground was perhaps a factor (best on good); others appeal more.

Form & Verdict

Jumped well and never headed at Perth (2m4f, good) in July and returned to that level when reeled in late on at Huntingdon (2m4f); not sure the winner of that race was particularly well handicapped and there are stamina doubts over this far.
