3-4 in handicap hurdles and now 3-4 in handicap chases; did it well over 3m2f at Doncaster and battled back to see off Prince Des Fichaux here (3m, heavy) last time, when the pair finished 21l clear; latest 6lb rise may well underestimate that performance and he surely has further improvement in him; whether he will deliver it over this trip can't be totally assured but he is going places and has to be on the shortlist.

Took record in handicaps to 4-5 when winning on chase and seasonal debut at Carlisle (3m2f, soft) in October; beaten into third back there (3m2f, good to soft) last time and needs something extra today but, in view of his previously progressive profile, there could still be improvement to come.

Won his final start for Sam Thomas at Ffos Las last April (3m1f, good) when in first-time cheekpieces; back to that same mark but has made a quiet start for this yard, in cheekpieces and blinkers.

Won at Ffos Las (3m2f, good) last April on final start for Sam Thomas; wore first-time cheekpieces that day and returned to form in second-time blinkers when close second of six to Fenland Tiger here (3m, heavy) last month, rallying after he bungled the final fence; back up 4lb since, plus an extra 4lb today because he's out of the handicap; a big career best is needed but he's relatively lightly raced.

Form & Verdict

Possibly needed the run when beaten just over 6l by Readysteadybeau at Ayr last month and is now 5lb better off with that rival; duly improved to go close back there four weeks ago when beaten by a very capable veteran; no ground worries and he should be a factor.

Form & Verdict

Appeared to show the benefit of another wind op when all out to win at Warwick last month (3m1f, soft); has become hard to predict and was below par in a Class 2 at Haydock last time that he won two years earlier; however, lurks on a dangerous mark with cheekpieces tried and could go well.

Hit and miss since winning the last running of this race in 2021 (by 10l off 1lb higher) but appeared to show the benefit of another wind op when all out to win at Warwick last month (3m1f, soft); clear claims if he can follow one good run with another.
