Well treated on his good second to very useful Notlongtillmay at Wetherby (1m7f; chase debut) last November; however, nowhere near that form in three runs since, latest in a notable race returned to hurdles; bit to prove back up in distance.

Point and hurdle (2m5f, soft) winner, who took his form to a new level with a bold bid on his chase/seasonal debut at Exeter (2m3f, good to soft) last month; up 4lb but he pulled 10l clear with the winner last time and is respected on this step back up in trip.

Creditable efforts in defeat in Graded novice chases this winter (3m, good/good to soft) and ran well for long way in 3m6f NH Chase at Cheltenham last month (heavy; beaten 32l); could be in the mix now back down in trip and back in a handicap, provided the removal of cheekpieces isn't an issue.

Consistent in defeat over hurdles last season and built upon his encouraging seasonal/chase/handicap debut when wide-margin winner of three-runner beginners' chase at Haydock (2m, heavy) last month; it's tricky to gauge what that form is worth but he's of strong interest here nevertheless.

Ended last season on a disappointing note but appears likely to bounce back; now returns to the scene of his maiden hurdle success (2m, heavy) and should be suited by rules fences, having won a British point on debut; stable in good form; one to note.

Didn't really take to chasing and when back over hurdles at Wincanton (2m5f) he perhaps found the heavy ground against him; won on good and good to soft over 2m4f last season and he probably stays 3m; nothing wrong with his mark.

Dual hurdle winner at Ffos Las (2m4f, good to soft/good) towards end of last season, latterly off today's mark; lacked fluency and was safely held in two chases in the autumn but ought to be seen to better effect now back over hurdles; unraced on heavy ground but handles soft well.

Three-time hurdles scorer at up to 3m1f, including off this mark; disappointing last of four in novice handicap chase at Fontwell (2m3f, good) in May but the horses who beat him have franked the form by winning since; possibilities provided he's back on song.
