Nothing like as good he was when at his peak for Venetia Williams and had luck on his side when beating last year's winner of this race at Wincanton in February (2m4f, soft); now has to bounce back from a shock defeat at Ludlow at the hands of Captain Tommy.

Form & Verdict

Strong hunter chase form last season, including here and when winning the Aintree Foxhunters' in April (2m5f, good to soft); has won a point-to-point on heavy ground; easily justified 1-10 odds in two-runner point at Larkhill last month and holds leading claims now back under rules.

Very smart hunter chaser; looked a real threat at Cheltenham last month but seemed to find 3m2f too far; this trip ideal and has the form to go very close if the latest effort hasn't left a mark; tongue-strap fitted.

Slightly concerning that he ran so poorly on his one visit here (last April) but he's a young horse for this scene and evidently improving after making such light work of his last two hunter chases, accounting for respected opposition in the process; seems fine on all ground; could be best of the British.

Front-runner who has an in-and-out profile but he won a handicap chase at Kempton (2m4f, good) last February and ran well when runner-up in a hunter chase at Taunton (2m7f, soft) last Tuesday; can make another bold bid if this doesn't come too soon.

Looked as though he might develop into a smart handicapper a few seasons back only for injury to intervene; won a Kempton handicap (2m4f, good; has won on heavy) 14 months ago but holding his form has been a challenge and he was well beaten by Espoir De Guye last time.

Had some problems since looking so promising earlier in career; won a 2m4f Kempton handicap last season before finishing a remote fourth in the cross-country race at the Cheltenham Festival; however, he ran a laboured race on hunter chase debut after 286 days away and that leaves him with questions to answer.
