Rookie trainer has made a fine start to career and this fellow won at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good to soft) in January on his second stable start; again had something in hand at Newbury (2m4f, good) last month, despite being hampered early, and this progressive 8yo is one to consider; has won on soft.

Right back to form when beaten just over 2l over 2m5f at Kempton (good to soft) a month ago and might have gone close without late interference; that form now looks really strong with last week's Aintree winner Kateira one placed behind, while the fifth (Harbour Lake) and sixth (West Balboa) have also run races of distinction since; well handicapped on that and other form in the past.

Didn't really fire during light campaign last season, but his third of seven at Aintree (2m4f, good) in May was a good step back in the right direction and he remains very well handicapped on older form.

Won this race (soft) last year off the same mark; he's not shown much this season even by his usual winter standards but ulcers were diagnosed and he's raised his game for the Cheltenham or Aintree festivals in each of the last four seasons; it's hard to say he won't do it again.

Form & Verdict

Ended last season with remarkable hat-trick of wins in major staying handicap chases; never really looked dangerous when keeping on from the rear for modest fourth over hurdles at Aintree (2m4f, good to soft) last month, though, and needs that run to have brought him on.

Stormed home in major staying chases on good/good to soft last February/April, winning the Eider (4m1f), Scottish National (4m) and at Sandown (3m4f); wore cheekpieces with tongue-tie last two occasions; uncompetitive this term, for which the handicapper has dropped him back just the 1lb; the ground is a bigger question (not often seen on soft or heavy) but he's reportedly blossomed since Cheltenham and there's no doubt he'll be suited by every yard of this race if he's back to form.

Carried all before him in staying chases last spring, winning the Eider (4m1f, good to soft), Scottish National (4m, good) and bet365 (3m4f, good to soft); easy to excuse hurdle defeats since but he would have finished closer in the Coral Gold Cup in December (cheekpieces/tongue-tie refitted) had he been in top form; turnaround needed with tongue-tie back on after one run without.
