Five-time point winner on ground ranging from good to soft to heavy; made fairly encouraging seasonal/stable debut in 2m4f novice hurdle last month and, with that outing under his belt, looks quite interesting on today's handicap chase debut.

Went close at Musselburgh (2m7f, soft) in January and comfortably went one better at Sedgefield (3m3f, soft) next time; of interest on that winning performance and he's better than he showed at Wetherby last time, but this 10yo needs to leave that run behind and is 5lb out of the handicap today.

Went close at Musselburgh (2m7f, soft) in January and built on that with comfortable win at Sedgefield (3m3f, soft) from Coolmoyne; it was a first victory for this 10yo so there are reservations about him defying a 6lb rise and following up, but if he repeats that latest form he'll be tough to beat.

Inconsistent 9yo who gained his latest win over 4m in a first-time visor just over a year ago; will be suited by today's trip/ground and his current mark is workable but he was pulled up over hurdles last month, after a break, and is not an easy one to predict.

Doncaster last time was a reminder he can throw in the odd poor effort, and he's not defied a triple-digit rating since autumn 2021; all-the-way C&D winner (soft) before now, however, and it was a deeper renewal of this race that he recorded a solid third in last term; player.
