J: Chris Ward

T: Deborah Cole

Won small-field events in the mud at Sedgefield (2m5f) and Leicester (near 2m7f) in two of his first three starts over fences; his C&D performance (heavy) on latest outing was modest, however.

Form & Verdict

Not the force of old but still runner-up off today's mark in consecutive races towards end of last season (2m6f, heavy/3m1f, soft); unlikely to be far away.

Champagne Court

J: Lorcan Williams

T: Jeremy Scott

Should be well handicapped but this is probably his level now; second of four at Stratford (2m6f, heavy) on his second run back from a layoff and is likely to need a bit more this time.

7/2

Form: F2PP9- D

W: 11st 7lb

10 yo Gelding

OR: 125

Form & Verdict

All his chase wins have come at Chepstow but he has form elsewhere and this is a softer race than at Cheltenham last month; however, he did bleed that day and there's no denying he has a point to prove.

J: Ben Jones

T: Rebecca Curtis

Gained all four chase wins at Chepstow but his third on the Old course here (3m1f, good to soft) in October was right up there with his best form; ran very poorly (albeit on heavy ground) last time and has a point to prove.

Comfortable winner of two soft-ground handicaps (2m5f/3m1f) before creditable third when favourite at Cheltenham last month (3m1f, good); hard to fault and cheekpieces are now added.
