Winless in a brief hurdle career but this is his game and he's won 2m4f handicap chases this season at Warwick (soft) and Kempton (good to soft) with a close second at Plumpton in between; his last win six weeks ago was in just a five-runner race and he's 9lb higher today but he bounded 14l clear from after two out and looked one to follow.

T: Jane Williams

Winless in a brief hurdle career but this is his game and he made an immediate impact on the switch to fences with a clear Warwick win (2m4f, soft); found only a fellow improver marginally too good at Plumpton since (2m3f, good to soft; third has won since); up 3lb but a likely type for yard that won this in 2020.

Came good over hurdles at fifth attempt, in Chepstow handicap (2m3f, good to soft) in April; this big-field chase will test his mettle but connections are evidently keen to switch him to fences.

Three-time hurdle winner who ended last season with good second off today's mark in Bangor chase (2m4f, good); also suited by soft ground and last month's reappearance run over hurdles was more encouraging than eventual 48l defeat might suggest; a player if that recent outing brought him on.
