Form & Verdict

Took well to fences in the autumn but was fortunate to collect a Grade 2 novice at Cheltenham (2m, good to soft) two starts ago and was probably only third best on merit when second in small-field contest on latest outing; may find that others are better handicapped.

Has won three of four chases at about 2m (good and good to soft) this season but the luck was with him on one occasion and he didn't need to improve to win at Doncaster in March; has more to do here and he bypassed two soft-ground races last term, so the state of the ground is a worry.

Won on chase debut in Wetherby handicap (1m7f, good) in October and followed up in Grade 2 novice at Cheltenham (2m, good to soft); benefited from the leader's final-fence unseat last time but the handicapper has barely reacted and he could have more to offer over fences; solid contender.

Form & Verdict

Grade 1 chase winner in 2020 but has regressed and become very inconsistent; finished remote when third of four in veterans' chase at Aintree (2m4f, soft) on Boxing Day and is not sure to be suited by today's drop back in trip; had wind surgery last month; cheekpieces refitted; others have much more persuasive profiles.

/Just two runs this season and, following a wind op, he returned to form with a good second at Doncaster (2m, good to soft) four weeks ago; he's fine over this trip and on soft/heavy going, and is one to consider.

Three wins last season, including a competitive C&D race and a Premier Handicap at Ayr; slow to come to hand this term but got back in the groove with creditable third over C&D five weeks ago and is still on a workable mark after a 1lb nudge.

Form & Verdict

Grade 2 novice chase winner over C&D last winter and looked just as good when scoring comfortably on seasonal debut at Kelso (2m1f, good to soft) in October; last month's Musselburgh fourth (2m4f, soft) was perfectly respectable and today's shorter trip arguably suits him better; good chance.

Won off this mark on reappearance at Kelso (2m1f, good to soft) in October and he's versatile ground-wise; not beaten far when fourth of five at Doncaster (2m, good to soft) last time, despite jumping to the right (which isn't the norm for him), and he's not ruled out.

T: Ann Hamilton

Two wins and a second from his three starts here, admittedly as a hurdler and over two years ago; a peak chase performance, such as his 2m1f Kelso win in October, would also see him bang there but he has a bit more to prove judged on his few appearances under rules over this sort of trip.

Form & Verdict

Seemingly revived by first-time cheekpieces when narrow winner of valuable handicap chase at Newbury (2m4f, good) a year ago, but was pulled up in both subsequent chases and didn't fire when switched back to hurdling here in January (headgear absent, as today); needs to turn things around.
