Has taken well to fences this season and kept on well for narrow win at Uttoxeter (2m4f, heavy) in December; raised only 2lb for that and will also be suited by today's trip-and-ground combination; strong contender.

Progressive 2m hurdler last season; second to stablemate Mister Policeman on chase debut at Fairyhouse in November; now 19lb better off but hard to be confident based on subsequent form; some encouragement from last week's Perth second, potentially well handicapped

Promising second behind Mister Policeman on chase debut in a beginners' at Fairyhouse in November but struggled with his jumping behind stablemate Figaroc (third) last time; still early days and likely the first-string here so can't be ruled out.

Form & Verdict

Veteran who has been rather disappointing over 3m plus since winning a 2m4f handicap in first-time cheekpieces at Cheltenham in December (soft); slightly better in blinkers (retained) at Cheltenham last week (3m2f, good) but needs to do even better.

Rejuvenated by first-time cheekpieces when winning veterans' chase by 7l here (2m4f, soft) in December but looked out of sorts when pulled up on next three outings; blinkers given a whirl today.

12yo; pulled up the last twice and lots to prove; however, he won in first-time cheekpieces (retained since) over 2m4f here (soft) in December on second start back from an absence and remains well treated on old form (including fourth in 3m1f Ultima here in 2021); Venetia Williams had 40-1 winner of this race in 2022 and 33-1 runner-up in 2021; not a forlorn hope at big odds.
