Won at Huntingdon (2m4f, good to soft) last January on second chase start and followed up at Worcester (2m, good) in May; better than ever on latest start when beaten a head at Taunton (2m2f, good to soft) and a 4lb rise since could have been worse; considered.

Usually races on easier tracks and less testing ground but useful form when third on Sandown's stiff finish last midwinter; made it three chase wins from six completions when winning at Doncaster (2m4f, good to soft) in January, when beating a good subsequent winner; up 4lb but unexposed for his age and could yet do better.

Progressive over 2m3f/2m4f on good to soft earlier in this novice campaign and, after failing to stay 4m1f in the Eider, he won in good style back at Newcastle (2m7f, heavy) last month; today's trip looks to be an ideal fit and this 7yo is open to further improvement; one to consider.

Sent chasing in October and has been first or second in all but one of his five runs over fences, sticking to his task well (tongue tied first time on latest outing); those best efforts were on good to soft but he did win twice over hurdles on soft and in a bumper on heavy; it's today's trip which gives him the most to prove, as not having gone beyond an extended 2m4f makes this 4m1f race a huge step in the dark.

Dual novice hurdle winner last winter and very nearly won his handicap debut in March (2m4f, soft); well beaten on last two starts, off 193 days before making chase debut on latest; this step back from nearly 3m may help; relatively early days too but he needs to resume improvement in today's first-time headgear.

Finished a creditable third of seven finishers over 2m4f at Doncaster (good to soft; first-time cheekpieces, retained); his current mark shouldn't be beyond him but he hasn't looked to relish a stamina test in two runs beyond that trip and there are more certain stayers in the field.

Versatile trip-wise from 2m4f to 3m and seems fine on all ground; while recent defeats point to limitations in a race of this nature, the handicapper has offered an olive branch as he's now only 1lb higher than for last May's Uttoxeter win.

Runs off a mark 4lb lower than when winning over fences at Cartmel last May and has had jumping issues when struggling in chases on his last three starts, so this return to hurdling is worth a go; showed promise in this sphere early in career but there's a major doubt regarding his current form.

Just held on to double chasing tally at Cartmel (2m5f, good) in May and also has winning form on heavy ground; ultimately well beaten when last of three finishers at Wetherby (2m3f, heavy) last month, after a break, but didn't run badly and the outing might have brought him on.

Form & Verdict

Won 2m6f hurdle in his younger days but both chase wins were over 2m (soft and good to soft); hard to gauge his current level as he finished remote on debut for new yard at Aintree and unseated too far out next time to know how he would have fared; at least the drop in grade is welcome.
