Form & Verdict

Jumping mistakes have figured in all three starts over fences, this term; tried cheekpieces on penultimate start and visor on latest, the latter easily his best result in this sphere when second of five here (3m2f, good to soft) and that result gives him a chance.

Had some jumping issues when first switched to chasing in the autumn but really got his act together over fences with good staying performance at Doncaster (3m, soft) in February, drawing clear to win by 14l; open to further improvement if he avoids significant errors here.

The last of his four wins (all chases) was in April 2021; two efforts in the frame last term (January and March) give him an excellent chance but he's been downhill this season despite falling in the weights.

Form & Verdict

Won at up to 2m7f last term as a hurdler but dropped back in trip when winning easily at Bangor (2m4f, heavy; 7lb higher today) in December this term; that's easily the best of his four runs over fences, so there's no guarantee the form will be reproduced.

Form & Verdict

Easily drew clear to win over hurdles at Ayr (3m, good to soft; 7lb higher today) in April 2022 in his second handicap; not seen again until two low-key runs this autumn, the latest on chase debut; off another 100 days and has a fair bit to prove.

Form & Verdict

Won in good style on handicap hurdle debut at Carlisle (2m1f, soft) last March and better form when odds-on second under a penalty at Chepstow (2m, soft) four days later; off since; not sure to stay this much longer trip judged on pedigree but it's an eyecatching move for this chase/seasonal debut and he should bring potential.

Won on handicap debut at Carlisle (2m1f, soft) a year ago and probably bettered than performance when clear second under a penalty at Chepstow (2m, soft) soon afterwards; seen only once this season, when very disappointing favourite on last month's chasing debut (jumped poorly and was pulled up), but is unexposed over this sort of trip and remains of strong interest.

Can front-run; 6-36 over fences, including wins this season at Hexham (3m, heavy) in December and Catterick (3m1f, soft) four weeks ago; the latter was by 17l and his best form for over two years, earning plenty of respect despite this 7lb higher mark.

Doncaster last time was a reminder he can throw in the odd poor effort, and he's not defied a triple-digit rating since autumn 2021; all-the-way C&D winner (soft) before now, however, and it was a deeper renewal of this race that he recorded a solid third in last term; player.

Signs of a revival when beaten ten lengths in a Cartmel chase in June but tailed off at Market Rasen since; plenty to prove back hurdling even though his mark continues to tumble.
