Form & Verdict

Has finished tailed off in three novice hurdles (2m3f-2m5f) but he was placed in a point and perhaps chasing will be the making of him; would like to see some confidence behind him, mind.

Two from two since switched to chasing, winning at Hereford (2m5f) and Warwick (3m); has a useful pedigree and appears likely to improve further; hat-trick looks on the cards.

Low-mileage 5yo who rewarded persistent ride when scoring on chase/handicap debut at Hereford (2m5f, soft) 16 days ago; encounters faster ground here but the longer trip ought to suit; could easily have more to offer.

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.
