Justified favouritism in four-runner field at Southwell (2m, soft; off 4lb lower) last month, opening his chase account at the fourth attempt; may build on that win and warrants respect.

J: Sean Bowen

Looked held in second at the final flight at Uttoxeter (2m4f, heavy) last month, when the leader fell and this fellow was hampered and unseated; however, it was still a promising run from this lightly raced 9yo on just his second chase start, and he races off the same mark today; respected.

Form & Verdict

Ex-Dan Skelton; ran creditably when placed in two maiden hurdles last spring (including on soft) and sound enough run when second on chase debut at Huntingdon in October (2m, good); has since been sold for £12,000; makes stable debut on return from a break and may be better for the run.

Multiple winning chaser; has raced at up to 2m3f for new yard and made experience tell when beating a chase debutant (2m, good to soft) here last time out; still below last June's winning mark and competitive again but wouldn't want the ground to be worse than good to soft.

Form & Verdict

Won three handicap chases from 2m1f to 2m5f on good ground last year, going up 14lb; returns after a break on a career-high mark on ground that is probably not ideal for him (runner-up when favourite the last time he ran on soft).
