Form & Verdict

Dual 2m winner at Bangor in the autumn and not beaten far in Cheltenham Grade 2 in between; managed only third when 1-3 favourite at Southwell (2m, good to soft) last month but should be fine over today's longer trip (3m point winner in 2022) and will be hard to beat if on his mettle.

Bought for £200,000 after winning an Irish point; beaten 11l in a Grade 2 at Cheltenham (2m, good) in October but easy odds-on winner from the front at Bangor (soft) on his other two starts over hurdles; sets a clear standard with all of those three pieces of form.

Bought for £200,000 after winning an Irish point; strolled home by 14l over C&D (soft) on his hurdling debut and his jumping improved when beaten 11l in a Grade 2 at Cheltenham (good) won by subsequent Greatwood runner-up Lookaway; sets a clear standard back in much calmer waters here and he should be hard to beat under his penalty.

Form & Verdict

Bumper winner who delivered on earlier hurdling promise when scoring by over 5l at Hereford (2m3f, good) in January; unraced on ground slow than good to soft but if conditions are suitable here he has strong claims.

Kept on strongly to win Huntingdon bumper (good to soft) on Boxing Day, but made very underwhelming seasonal/hurdle debut when well-held fourth there (2m3f, good to soft) last month and this race looks much stronger.

Form & Verdict

Won an Irish bumper last spring (good to yielding) and scored on hurdling debut at Sedgefield (2m1f, soft) in the autumn; only third best on merit when second over C&D (soft) last month, though, and has a bit to find with his two rivals today.

Bumper winner who scored on his hurdle debut at Sedgefield (2m1f, soft) in October before a fair fourth here (2m, heavy) in November; improvement needed to defy a penalty on this first run since but he returns having had a wind op and his pedigree suggests he'll be suited by the step up in trip.
