7yo who had form figures of 223512 over hurdles two seasons ago; missed last term but he returned from 663 days off with a 16l win at Sandown (2m, soft) last month; 8lb higher in this deeper race but he still looks on a workable mark and is open to more progress; key player.

Form & Verdict

Acts on heavy; fairly useful (2m4f maiden winner) for Paul Nicholls in 2021 but then went absent for 993 days; back this winter, pulled up twice over fences and although he was better when third of five over hurdles at Leicester 15 days ago, with visor/tongue-tie fitted, that was in a claimer and he needs to step up again.

Only win was in a Chepstow maiden hurdle for Paul Nicholls back in January 2021 (2m3f, heavy); off for 933 days after that novice season; has taken time to find his form for his new yard, but fair efforts on last two starts (15l-second over 2m at Sandown last time); has plummeted in the weights (down 16lb this season); interesting with cheekpieces tried.

Form & Verdict

Sole win in 24 races under rules was in a maiden hurdle in April 2022 for Gordon Elliott; goes well on soft ground (runner-up on heavy on Flat) and this season's first two starts for new yard were his best efforts for a while; second of eight in a military race over C&D latest, behind a runaway winner but this 6yo is still one to consider.

Sole win in 25 races was in a maiden hurdle in April 2022 for Gordon Elliott; this season's first two starts for new yard were his best efforts for a while, but his placings behind runaway winners at Sandown on last two outings do not read so well; not proven beyond 2m1f and unraced over this far; acts on soft.

Smart chaser in his prime; on the downgrade now and has rather mixed record over hurdles this season but lurks on a very tempting mark and ought to handle today's ground well; will be very dangerous if perked up by first-time blinkers.

Form & Verdict

Second in a Lingfield novice in November and ran respectably on his handicap debut there (again 2m on good to soft) next time; needs to bounce back from a lesser show here (2m4f, soft; 7-1) three weeks ago but he appeared to be stretched by the longer trip, weakening after a mistake two out; a lot more lightly raced and less exposed than today's rivals.

After filling second in a Lingfield novice he came up shy of market expectations on his handicap debut back there (again 2m on good to soft), going down by 8l (behind Artistic Endeavour); bred for this longer distance and no doubt capable of better.
