Dual hunter chase winner last spring; 0-5 since joining current stable but returned from break with pretty good second at Fontwell (2m5f, good) last month and remains on a good mark; won on heavy ground in France but best British form is on good/good to soft.

Free-going front-runner who did very well in 2023, winning four chases (2m3f-2m4f, good-soft); back in good nick when third off today's mark at Ludlow (3m, good) last month; no surprise if he makes another bold bid here.

Form & Verdict

Yet to make any significant progress since his winning hurdle debut in autumn 2022 but still has fairly low mileage and did very well to go close in Southwel chase (2m4f, good) three weeks ago, given he jumped right-handed throughout; ground any slower than good to soft would be a worry but today's switch to a right-handed track is the obvious move.

Underwhelming progress over hurdles after winning his novice; kicked off his chase career with a promising second at Market Rasen (2m5f, good to soft) in November but he was a well-held fourth of six at Ludlow last time; in good hands and still lightly raced but others are more convincing.

Form & Verdict

Easily won four-runner race at Southwell (2m4f, heavy) on chasing debut in February, and his subsequent fourth at Sandown (2m4f, good to soft) was also a good effort; beaten in three-runner race when back at Southwell last month but, with the forecast rain in his favour, he's a contender here.

Immediately looked a better chaser when making all for a 13l success over C&D in February (heavy; just four ran) on his first run over fences; departed early at Kelso and his respectable Sandown fourth was in a higher grade; bit to prove off this mark but strongly considered.

Very useful at his best but soundly beaten four times since returning from long absence this year; versatile regarding ground and may yet turn things around but it's probably wise to wait for some encouraging signals from the betting; ran poorly the only previous time he wore cheekpieces (in 2022).

Very useful in his prime and he's one to watch in the betting off a reduced mark; however, following a long absence this 10yo has struggled on both starts this year and a major turnaround is needed.

Three-time chase winner since last spring's wind surgery, the last twice over C&D on good ground (also suited by soft); had excuse when pulled up at Fakenham in February (bled from the nose), and the return to this track is an obvious plus.

Has not looked back since undergoing wind surgery and it was all fairly straightforward when beating a reliable type at Hereford a month ago (2m5f, good); bumped up 7lb for that but coped with testing ground in France and he makes plenty of appeal.

Two-time French chase winner who has turned a big corner since returning from wind surgery, winning his second race of 2023 over C&D (good) in November; patiently ridden when close up off this 4lb higher mark at Doncaster and fully entitled to be in the mix once again.

Made shaky start to chasing career last autumn but, following a break, got act together with narrow win at Plumpton (2m3f, good) in March; rather disappointing when only third of five back at Plumpton last month but could still have potential over fences; probably wants good/good to soft ground.

Dual hurdle winner at about 2m4f (good to soft); wasn't at all convincing in his first two chases but came good under a prominent ride over C&D (good) two weeks ago when readily repelling the strong-finishing second; just 4lb higher for this similar sort of race and Freddie Gingell's claim takes away 3lb of that.
