He continues to drop down the weights and there was a hint of a revival when fair third at Southwell in January; however, he's been pulled up on both starts since and is back to having plenty to prove.

Not the horse of old (winless since December 2020) and a poor run last month to forgive; in the frame in a Lincolnshire, North Yorkshire (last year) and two London Nationals over the years, however, and ought not fail for stamina; first ever drop into a class 5 handicap.

Form & Verdict

11yo who is inconsistent and made it 0-16 over fences when runner-up at Ffos Las (3m, soft) last Tuesday, when he looked set to score only to be overhauled after the final fence; however, he's unexposed over staying trips and he'll be bang there if producing another good run.

Yet to add to his two novice hurdle wins in 2018 and is 0-17 over fences but was runner-up twice on slow ground last month (latterly over C&D) and has obvious each-way claims again.

Form & Verdict

Point winner who is 0-18 under rules and her jumping can lack fluency, but she's run well to finish second the last twice (3m1f/2m7f, soft/good) and good recent form is scarce in this line-up; on the shortlist.

Form & Verdict

Inconsistent and he was never travelling when tailed off at Fakenham (3m, good) last time; however, prior to that he was a fair second of four there (3m5f, good) on his second start back from a long absence; showed promise on soft early in career; not discounted.

Very lightly raced 9yo who was in process of running well on stable/chase debut until jumping error at third-last fence seemed to knock the stuffing out of him at Uttoxeter (3m, heavy; first-time cheekpieces) in December; that was his first start since early 2022 and he has a fighting chance today if that outing has done him good.

Form & Verdict

Disappointing at Chepstow (2m7f, soft) last month but won there on his two other starts this year (2m7f/3m2f, heavy); has also won away from Chepstow; capable of a bold bid if leaving last time behind.

Won narrowly over C&D in January but then comfortably defied a 6lb higher mark on his return visit over 3m2f; that's triggered a further 7lb rise but he's a sound jumper who looks sure to be involved.
