J: Nico de Boinville

T: Nicky Henderson

Lightly raced 9yo; won three of his first six races over hurdles, surging 8l clear at Taunton (2m3f, good) in November, but the wheels came off at Kempton on Boxing Day and he was pulled up behind Mahons Glory; needs to bounce back but he's since had wind surgery and could still be unexposed; Henderson and De Boinville combined to win this race in 2018 and 2019.

Promising efforts in 2021 included a C&D maiden win (good); absent 629 days prior to a fair third behind Mark Of Gold over C&D in February and back to his best when winning at Taunton (2m3f, good) late last month by 8l; today's 9lb higher mark demands more but he travelled much the best last time and ran on strongly, so may well be about to scale greater heights.

Made it 2-3 over fences when winning at Bangor (2m4f, good) in September and was suited by going back left-handed when neck runner-up at Ayr (2m4f, good to soft) last time; could be in the mix once more.

Three wins over fences in April-June 2023 but he's had mixed results in last four runs and was only fifth of seven at Huntingdon (2m4f, good) in his final start last year; not sure what to expect back from 195 days off and interesting to see how he figures in market.

Three-time chase winner since the spring (2m1f-2m4f); gave good account when second of four behind all-the-way winner at Plumpton (2m1f, good) last month and a recent 1lb drop helps; ought to be on the premises.

J: Sean Quinlan

T: Lizzie Quinlan

Won three times last year and back on the scoresheet over C&D (soft) last Saturday, following wind surgery; had just a short head to spare in that three-runner race and this is much more competitive, but it was certainly a positive performance and he's gone back up just 1lb; not ruled out.
