0-6 over hurdles but kept on well from unpromising position when second on seasonal/stable/chase debut at Market Rasen (3m, good to soft) on Boxing Day, and his Irish point win in 2022 suggests he'll be suited by today's slower ground; likely contender.

Beatn 14l when third of seven on chase/handicap debut at Market Rasen (3m, good to soft) but he was prominent for a long way and this lightly raced brother to 2m Grade 2 chase winner Nube Negra could benefit from today's drop back in distance; he's one to consider.

Returned from break with two disappointing runs in December (hurdle/chase) but responded well to first-time blinkers and ran big race in defeat over C&D (good) last month; still well handicapped on some of his hurdling form and today's slower ground ought to be in his favour; in the mix.

Scored off 6lb higher mark over hurdles in first-time cheekpieces last season but well beaten in both his chases, the latter on Boxing Day; needs a good boost from today's headgear switch and would appeal more on soft ground.

Fair fourth on rules debut at Wetherby (2m) last March; two lesser runs followed later in the spring but this lightly raced former pointer could be suited by the step up in trip on handicap debut; monitor the betting.

Inconsistent and made it 0-10 in Britain when down the field at Sedgefield; however, he's now 5lb lower than when a fair third at Musselburgh (2m7f, soft) two starts ago and is not written off in a reapplied tongue-tie (worn when winning in France) and first-time visor (replacing cheekpieces).

Encouraging second at Newcastle (2m7f, heavy) last March on British chase debut and not ruled out now 3lb lower; however, things haven't gone to plan since and jumping can be an issue (early unseat on Boxing Day).
