Form & Verdict

Infuriatingly hard to predict for David Pipe but he's a thorough stayer who ran surprisingly well on his hunter chase debut at Taunton (2m5f, soft); if taking that form at face value he must have a chance.

Form & Verdict

Stuck on a losing run but he's returned in good form after a break with placed efforts in 3m handicaps at good tracks, two of them Class 2 affairs; this looks a gilt-edged opening in his first hunter chase.

J: Mr James King

T: Tom Lacey

Ran well in three strong handicap chases before suffering a surprise odds-on defeat on his hunter chase debut at Warwick, where he appeared to have it in the bag before either idling or tiring late on (3m, soft); that was very much a missed opportunity but he's still the one to beat here; first-time tongue-tie replaces cheekpieces.

Very smart chaser for Venetia Williams but he's had a number of wind operations and was well beaten in two handicap chases last year for Paul Nicholls; remains in the same ownership and he's too talented to ignore now entering the hunter chase scene.

Useful Rules performer ran two decent races off 133 in Galway festival handicap chases last summer; won just one of his seven point-to-point starts this year, at Ballyraggett in March, but his fourth to Billaway, with Vaucelet in second, at Downpatrick is good form and obviously less to do in this company.

Only a 6yo and he won three of his seven chase starts when trained in France; all his form is on testing ground and his final runs in France were disappointing; could still turn a corner for Tim Vaughan.
