Two wins (2m4f/2m3f, good to soft/soft) from last three starts, with good fourth in hot novice handicap at Cheltenham in between; did it comfortably at Catterick latest despite final-fence blunder; unexposed over fences and could have more to offer in this sphere; key player up 7lb for last time.

Looks progressive, winning with plenty to spare at Doncaster last month (2m4f, good to soft) on second chase run; needs to prove his mettle against other up-and-coming rivals but his northern yard doesn't venture here often now and is 3-9 with chasers on this track in the last five seasons.

Ex-Irish 8yo who has struck form for Micky Hammond since the turn of the year, winning Class 5 races at Newcastle (2m4f, soft) and Wetherby (2m3f, soft); takes a big step up in grade today but still respected in current mood.

Denied hat-trick when second to the highly progressive Prairie Wolf at Catterick (2m3f, soft) in February and back to winning ways at Wetherby (2m3f, soft) three weeks ago; he's 10lb higher than when beating four rivals last time but did it easily and is clearly thriving; entitled to respect.

Form & Verdict

Made good start to chasing career in the autumn, notably when winning at Wetherby (1m7f, soft); arrives here after two non-completions and now has a point to prove but he's on a workable mark and will be suited by today's trip; helps to give Sue Smith a strong hand.
