Form & Verdict

Rewarded determined Tom Cannon ride when winning by nearly 5l on seasonal/chase debut at Kempton (2m4f, good) but never warmed to the task when pulled up over C&D last month; needs first-time visor to keep him interested today; others look much less risky.

Didn't hang about over hurdles despite winning a maiden (2m5f, soft); was flat to the boards on chase debut at Kempton (2m4f, good) but kept finding to win going away at the finish; hit with a 9lb rise and will need to travel better to defy that rise.

Sent chasing for this second campaign under rules and it's gone well, notably at Aintree (3m1f, soft; unraced on heavy) on Boxing Day for his second chase win; that was smooth, asserting well from two out, and he got going much too late when creditable second on good ground at Doncaster (3m) three weeks ago, so this greater test of stamina makes serious appeal for him.

Chasing this term, comfortably taking a five-runner handicap at Southwell (3m, good to soft) on first attempt; not discredited next time and good second to No But I Will at Wetherby (3m, soft) latest, so he's firmly in the mix.

Bumper and maiden hurdle winner who scored on his chase debut at Exeter (3m, good to soft) in November; soundly beaten over fences the next twice and unproven on soft ground, but he's in top hands and perhaps the return to hurdles will trigger a revival from this lightly raced 8yo.

Form & Verdict

Bounced back quickly from a disappointing run (in cheekpieces) to open chasing account in first-time blinkers at Wincanton (3m1f, good to soft) last month; not one to rely upon heavily but recent 4lb rise ought to be manageable if he responds well to a first-time visor.

Very respectable third on seasonal/stable debut at Huntingdon (2m7f, good to soft) last month but ought to have been suited by the soft ground when pulled up at Ludlow three weeks ago and today's headgear switch needs to perk him up.
