7yo who easily won a hunter chase at Cheltenham (3m2f, good) last May and beat some talented rivals in a hunter chase at Wincanton (3m1f, good to soft) 16 days ago; two of his five point-to-point wins have come on soft ground; could play a leading role in this follow-up bid.

Form & Verdict

Chase career has been decidedly up and down but he's always had lots of class and won a good 2m4f Newbury handicap when last seen in April 2022; pulled up in both his previous races at about 3m but those were strong handicaps; interesting to see what the market makes of him after so long out.

Inconsistent since his Grade 2 novice success in 2018, as his form figures (36P) for current yard reflect; however, has a good chance in this field provided he's back on song; third off 4lb higher in the Paddy Power Gold Cup at Cheltenham in November.

12lb out of the weights but that's not prevented horses from running well in these races in the past; takes on this challenge after two competitive runs in 3m1f handicaps over the regulation fences here, latterly finishing close up behind last weekend's Becher Chase winner Chambard; one to consider at lengthy odds.

The last to finish when second in his latest point; was 150-1 for the hunter chase here at the Festival won by Premier Magic and he was well on the retreat when unseating; he's better than that - was beaten only 3.5l by the winner in a point at Christmas - but likely to be playing for the places.

Runner-up on his first five starts since rejoining Fergal O'Brien this season, switched to fences on last two occasions; Cheltenham hurdle race on latest outing proved much too tough but he acts on soft (unraced on heavy) and this new trip is intriguing for one who stays 3m so well.
