Yard had good record with chasers here in recent years and won today's race in 2021 but this one rarely runs beyond 2m and well below his best in two runs this season; has stamina to prove on first 2m4f run.

Raced mainly at around 2m but returned to form with clearcut success when upped to 2m4f at Lingfield (good to soft) 11 days ago and is now 6-20 over fences; escapes a penalty here (due a 5lb rise) and ought to cope with the slower ground; obvious contender.

10yo who is not easy to predict but he shaped as though he needed the run at Huntingdon on his recent return and he's 2-3 over C&D, including a win in this race (off 3lb higher) last year; looks interesting back at this track and he's in the mix for in-form yard.

Last won in January 2021 (2m4f, heavy) but he hasn't had a lot of racing since and things were starting to look more hopeful in the spring; well held on return but has a moderate record when fresh; can do better.

Form & Verdict

Smart in his prime although win record doesn't really do him justice and form is rather up and down now; however, he did make all off this mark at Chepstow in January (2m3f, soft) and can be involved with the help of Kai Lenihan's valuable 8lb claim.

Nothing like the force of old but is handicapped accordingly now; dropped another 2lb since last month's very respectable fourth at Ludlow and will be suited by the return to this C&D; can make a bold bid from the front.

11yo who was disappointing at Ayr (2m, soft) last month but posted two respectable performances previously when making the frame at Lingfield (2m4f, good to soft) and Chepstow (2m3f, heavy), and he's been given a chance by the handicapper; could have a part to play.

Won a better veterans' race than this at Haydock in November 2022 (3m1f, soft; effective at 2m4f) but lost his way subsequently and pulled up a fair way out in France on return from a break last month; hard to assess but this is less demanding than usual so a revival on the cards.

Form & Verdict

Both chase wins came in the 2020-21 season and his form fluctuates now; on much the same mark as a 2m3f hurdle win (soft) in January but he never showed at Ffos Las in November and this is his first run over fences since pulling up in March.
