Form & Verdict

Runner-up in the autumn on first two starts for this yard (2m3f/2m1f, good); the ground was heavy when he was pulled up at Bangor last time but there is also a doubt about him on today's forecast soft going.

J: Robert Dunne

T: Gary Hanmer

Multiple winning chaser; has raced at up to 2m3f for new yard and made experience tell when beating a chase debutant (2m, good to soft) here last time out; still below last June's winning mark and competitive again but wouldn't want the ground to be worse than good to soft.

J: Bryan Carver

T: Gary Hanmer

Eight-time chase winner; long in the tooth now and has high mileage but ran well in defeat on both starts for new stable last month (2m/2m3f, good); raced mainly on good ground in Britain but won on heavy in France; can make his presence felt.

Form & Verdict

Creditable third on handicap hurdle debut at Ludlow (2m, good to soft) in November and this very lightly raced point runner-up, who has shown promise on soft ground, could improve for the switch to fences; contender.

J: Sam Twiston-Davies

T: Anthony Honeyball

Runner-up in an Irish point and he's shown promise in his three runs under rules, including a clear second in a novice hurdle at Taunton (2m, good to soft) on his recent return after another break; looks interesting now switched to a handicap and he's bred to be better than this opening mark.

Form & Verdict

Placed in French chases in 2020 and back over fences for first time since when bolting up at Bangor (2m1f, heavy) last month; he's 10lb higher in a better race here but has to be respected given his dominance last time.
