Form & Verdict

Brother to smart 2m chaser Nube Negra and having only his second run over fences when coming clear at Catterick (2m3f, soft; under Lewis Dobb); started off at the right end of the handicap so an 8lb rise could be very manageable and going further today should suit (strong late on last time after getting outpaced).

Brother to the classy 2m chaser Nube Negra; his jumping was a joy to behold when winning comfortably over C&D (heavy) in February but the runner-up comprehensively reversed those placings at Leicester, albeit back at 2m (soft); this is probably more his trip; only third when trying cheekpieces once before but wouldn't count that against him.

Form & Verdict

Has won two of his five chases and seems best at this trip with 2m6f proving a stretch last time; only 4lb higher than for his Leicester win two runs back and the runner-up didn't fare too badly at Hereford this week.

Has improved since going over fences this term, winning three times at up to 2m4f, latest off 6lb lower at Leicester (2m, soft); on a career-high mark but an obvious contender.

Displayed a willing attitude when scoring over 2m4f here (soft; from a 4lb lower mark) in January, and seemingly undone by the extra yardage back here next time; chased home Noche Negra at Southwell last time (beaten 2.75l), so would have a chance of reversing those placings on 5lb better terms.

Form & Verdict

Four wins divided between hurdles and fences; has raced mostly at about 2m but seemed to stay Sedgefield's extended 2m3f (soft) when runner-up three weeks ago; drops into a Class 5 here and must have a chance.

Without a win since 2021 but has made the frame on all four starts this season, most notably when second at Sedgefield (2m3f, soft) two runs ago; continues to slip down the weights and has possibilities if the first-time cheekpieces give him a boost.
