Built upon encouraging chasing debut when keeping on well for clearcut success at Taunton (2m, soft) in March; 5lb higher here but might be seen to even better effect on the faster ground; good chance.

Three chase wins last season, the latest over C&D (good) in January; looked as good as ever when second over C&D (good) 17 days ago and is likely to be right in the thick of things again; respected.

On workable mark if judged on best of last summer's chase form and bagged an AW win in March but last month's AW run was very disappointing and some of the others in this line-up appeal more.

Form & Verdict

Unseated rider at first fence on chasing debut for Fergal O'Brien last October; subsequently won a claiming hurdle for that stable but is 0-7 over hurdles for James Owen (latest defeat was in back plating company) and looks too risky on this second chasing attempt.

Very lightly raced 8yo; absent since tailed off in novice hurdle in March 2023 (had wind op soon afterwards) but won a bumper on rules debut in 2022 and was unlucky not to win an Irish point in 2021; market may guide before today's chase/handicap debut.

Created pretty good impression when dominating fast-ground bumper here from the front on rules debut in November but capitulated rather tamely after racing too freely on last month's hurdling debut at Huntingdon (good); will need to settle better.

Kept on for respectable third at Ffos Las (2m, good to soft) in October, his second start for Robbie Llewellyn, but has gone the wrong way since; pulled up over hurdles on latest outing in March; needs to turn a corner.
