Form & Verdict

Has had a fantastic career, his 13 wins including eight on this track at up to 2m4f; has struggled in recent months though and, while a second of four finishers here before Christmas was better, he should find easier opportunities than this race, where he's 8lb out of the weights.

Nine-time course winner, most recently when causing 14-1 surprise over 2m in early January; unreliable nowadays but he's effective over today's trip and his current mark is probably workable; impossible to rule out.

Form & Verdict

Well ahead of the handicapper when hacking up on handicap hurdle debut here last January (2m, heavy); satisfactory chase debut was improved on at Carlisle (2m, good to soft) last month where he jumped boldly in front but was no match for the winner; has potential but an easy lead unlikely.

Creditable second twice over 2m since switched to chasing; form dipped here (8l behind Travail D'Orfevre; first run since wind surgery) most recently but this new trip is worth exploring judged on pedigree.

Looked sure to collect at Ayr last month when 2l ahead at the last but he went down to a rallying Ardera Cross; has just a 2lb pull on the winner but perhaps the subsequent wind surgery can help him see this out better.

Front-running wins at about 2m1f early in 2023 (soft and good ground) off much lower marks; in good form either side of being pulled up in November but, although the likely strong pace will suit, this sharp test might suit others better.

Completed a double (2m/2m1f, soft/good) when winning here last February and has run well in defeat the last twice (2m, good/heavy); the step back up in distance poses a question but the trip may be within range and he can be in the mix if seeing it out.

Front-runs; winner of both course starts, a 2m4f novice hurdle and when looking as fresh as a daisy to win this (heavy; off 1lb lower) last January; can come on for return in November and bold bid likely.

Form & Verdict

Three chase wins at 2m1f but latest success was off a much lower hurdle mark at Uttoxeter in November (2m, heavy); outpaced in the straight on debut for new yard over 2m3f at Sedgefield but he stayed on dourly into a close second; needs to be at the top of his game back at 2m.
