Form & Verdict

Off the mark over fences at Stratford (2m3f, good) in October and closely matched with Natty Night on a 2m4f run (soft) here in January, albeit the latter found that bit extra when needed; well worth another go at 2m6f though and on the premises.

Form & Verdict

Not beaten far on chase debut at Lingfield (2m7f, soft) in November but he didn't run well next time and was pulled up a long way out at Hereford 13 days ago; best watched with first-time blinkers replacing cheekpieces.

Creditable efforts on both completed starts this season (has pulled up twice), last time finishing second of three finishers at Leicester (2m6f, heavy, first-time blinkers) on second run after wind surgery; headgear retained; not without a chance despite being 2lb out of the handicap.

Won soft-ground chase over 2m4f at Warwick last March but nothing doing this winter and replacing cheekpieces with blinkers made no difference last time out.

Going okay when falling at Leicester and made amends here two weeks ago (2m5f, soft), overcoming early mistakes to win well in the end; 5lb rise isn't the end of the world provided he can sharpen up his act on the jumping front.

Inconsistent but he ran well when third of four at Leicester (2m6f, heavy) last month, when not quite seeing it out, and was bang there when falling three out there (2m4f, soft) three weeks ago; could be involved.

T: Ben Case

Off the mark over fences at Warwick (2m4f, soft; first-time cheekpieces) last March, but has failed to kick on positively; continues to ease in the weights having floundered late on (third of four) over 2m6f here last time; possibilities dropping back to 2m4f.

Form & Verdict

Has given trouble at the start; the return to a staying trip didn't work out at Hereford 13 days ago (3m1f) but he had previously shaken off his rivals in quite good style over 2m4f here (soft) and this intermediate trip should be within his scope; good claims.

Has stamina to prove today and is not one for maximum faith, having virtually refused to race three outings ago and looked reluctant to line up last time; however, he drew clear on the run-in to open his chasing account at Leicester (2m4f, soft) three weeks ago and today's 4lb higher mark ought to be manageable.
