Form & Verdict

Inconsistent last season and has mainly raced at shorter trips in Britain, but he's on a competitive mark on his best form and is worth another go at this distance; his positive reappearance record catches the eye and he could be a major contender with his trainer among the winners.

Triple chase winner who dug deep when scoring at Hereford (2m, soft) in January; reportedly suffering from an irregular heartbeat when disappointing at Chepstow but bounced back with a good second at Wincanton 12 days ago; probably wouldn't want the ground to dry out but he still looks on a workable mark and has possibilities if conditions are in his favour.

Well-beaten second on chase/seasonal debut at Warwick (2m4f, good) last month but the easy winner (who has followed up) was miles ahead of his mark; this lightly raced bumper and soft-ground novice hurdle winner is open to improvement for his leading trainer and is firmly in calculations.

Not out of the first two in any of his four chases and beat a good yardstick in a 2m4f handicap at Newbury (good to soft); coped well with the step up to Grade 2 level at Ascot last time when going right handed didn't look ideal (jumped out to the left at times); has stamina to prove but remains lightly raced for his top yard and hard to rule out.

Tailed off at Kempton in April when last seen but has had a second wind operation since and he showed promise over fences earlier in the campaign; this lightly raced 7yo is open to further improvement for his top stable this season and he goes well fresh; one to consider.

The cheekpieces had been working well in handicaps at about 2m4f before he came up well short in a strong handicap at Cheltenham 19 days ago; didn't stay 3m here when trying it once before but conditions will be quicker this time and that should help.

Now 9lb lower than when winning this last year (good to firm) and he returned from wind op with encouraging third of six at Wetherby (2m3f, good) three weeks ago; however, today's race is more competitive than 12 months ago and his subsequent profile has been patchy; may not want slow ground.

Lightly raced in recent seasons and he returned to form when third at Sandown (2m4f, soft) in March when last seen; Sandown brings out the best in him but he's capable of running well elsewhere and is not discounted.

Won five from six chases on this track, the one defeat coming when runner-up in this last year on good ground which may have been faster than ideal; went into his shell after but took advantage of a generous mark in no uncertain fashion over C&D 23 days ago (soft; first completion in blinkers); back up 9lb but still 3lb lower than last February; solid chance.

Form & Verdict

Having gone up the weights he was soundly beaten in mid-division in the Summer Plate at Market Rasen (2m5f) in July, on soft ground he should have handled, however, he was highly progressive and prolific previously, and it will be no surprise if he bounces back with a big run today.

Winless since last February and he's yet to hit top form this term, undergoing wind surgery before coming in a remote third of four at Southwell (2m4f) last month; others appeal more.
