Failed to win last season and ended the campaign with two below-par efforts but has slipped to a tempting mark and is sure to appreciate this ease in grade; will be suited by today's trip/ground; dangerous to ignore.

Form & Verdict

Very lightly raced 10yo who began career with four convincing wins (a point, a bumper and two novice hurdles); returned from mammoth absence with 41l defeat on handicap hurdle debut in January, though, and it's hard to know what to expect from him on this chasing debut.

10yo who is unbeaten having won a point, bumper and two novice hurdles, all of them easily; he last raced in May 2021 and has a mammoth absence to defy but he's a fascinating contender, all the more so if strong in the market.

Has not yet kicked on from last spring's Perth maiden win (2m4f, good to soft) but took big step back in right direction when keeping-on second at Market Rasen (2m7f, soft) last month and might be aided by the addition of cheekpieces here.

Returned from long absence with fair fifth at Wetherby (2m3f, heavy) in November; pulled up at Haydock (3m, heavy) since but today's return to better ground could be a plus, with her win in a maiden hurdle at Perth (2m4f) in April 2022 coming on good to soft going.

Looked as good as ever when winning veterans' chase at Cheltenham (2m4f, good) just over a year ago and is now 7lb beneath that mark; it was a struggle when confined to only three appearances last year but it wouldn't be a bolt from the blue should he bounce back for last year's winning stable.

Not always an easy one to predict but came good for current stable at fourth attempt, darting clear from penultimate fence to win by 22l at Market Rasen (2m1f, good to soft) last month; moves back up in grade today but he's 2-2 at Uttoxeter, and this trip-and-ground combination will suit.
