Won three times over hurdles last year (once over C&D), and his second to a progressive rival at Bangor (2m7f, soft) in October was arguably a career-best effort; slightly disappointing at Ascot last month this race is easier and his current mark is workable.

Consistent sort who won three times last year, latest in September; well below form in December on latest start but that was after 79 days off, when 20-1 and over just an extended 2m5f, whereas most of his runs last year (and the wins) were over 2m7f-3m; place chance if back on song.

About 47l behind Halifax over C&D on handicap debut last February and not seen again since but his first two hurdle runs were very encouraging and he remains unexposed; no surprise is he features.

2-4 as a novice hurdler in first few months of 2022 and, following a long absence, made fairly encouraging handicap debut at Market Rasen (2m4f, good to soft) in November, keeping on steadily from the rear for fifth; moves back up in trip here and has possibilities if that outing did her good.

Much better known as a marathon chaser; looked out of sorts towards towards end of last season and was again pulled up when reverting to hurdles for last month's reappearance outing; needs to stop the rot.

Now a 12yo and he's struggling to recapture his best form, with a remote fourth at Warwick no real indication that he's about to turn a corner.

It was over hurdles that he pulled up on his comeback and this is more his game, though he also failed to complete on his final two chases of last season; has just turned 12 and might do well to get his form back.

Ultimately well beaten when fourth at Warwick (3m2f, soft) in November and now 0-8 over hurdles but that was his first run for a year and significant positives can be drawn from that performance; not out of this.

Form & Verdict

Opened account over C&D (good to soft) in November, his second handicap, and last month's third at Aintree (3m, heavy) was perfectly respectable; should still have a bit more to offer; good chance.

First run beyond 2m5f when winning an Exeter handicap (2m7f, good to soft) and the heavy ground perhaps found him out when an 11l third at Aintree (3m); that's solid form with the winner running so well in defeat at Warwick on Saturday; gets in off the same mark.

Shapes like a stayer and was off the mark on first run at beyond 2m5f when winning Exeter handicap last time (2m7f, good to soft); this longer trip should suit even better and an interesting contender.

Dual chase winner in early part of last year (2m3f/2m5f) and made satisfactory seasonal debut here on New Year's Day; reverts to hurdling on a lower mark and today's trip/ground will suit; can't be ignored.

Verdict

There should still be more to come from MOONLIGHT ARTIST, who looked suited by the step up in trip when scoring over C&D in November and was not discredited on very testing ground at Aintree last month. Halifax ought to find this easier than his latest assignment at Ascot and is second choice, ahead of Eavesdropping.[Chris Wilson]
