Doncaster last time was a reminder he can throw in the odd poor effort, and he's not defied a triple-digit rating since autumn 2021; all-the-way C&D winner (soft) before now, however, and it was a deeper renewal of this race that he recorded a solid third in last term; player.

On the podium for 13 of 17 chase starts, winning four, is effective on slow ground and is back below a winning mark; yard has won three of the last seven renewals, including last year's Patrick Wadge-ridden victor; player, so long as the recent tendency to jump right doesn't resurface.

Won on reappearance here (3m2f, good to soft) in October and bounced back from below-par run at Cheltenham when fair third at Ayr (3m, soft) last month; he's 2-2 over fences at Kelso and could play a leading role now back here in a first-time visor (replacing cheekpieces).

Back to form with a bang when winning a veterans' chase by an eased-down 12l over C&D (soft) a month ago and a 7lb rise could have been worse; strong claims.

Has struggled on his last four starts, being pulled up on both runs last month; plenty to prove but he's 5lb lower than when winning at 16-1 over C&D (heavy) last March, and that came in the visor that goes back on this afternoon; the first-time tongue-tie may also help; not a forlorn hope.
