Quite a useful staying handicapper on the Flat; won a Sedgefield novice on hurdle debut in November 2022 (2m, soft) and fair efforts next twice; well beaten on the Flat recently, but quite interesting on first run over fences.

J: James Davies

T: Gary Moore

Mixed form over hurdles in Britain and well beaten latest; however, he was second of four at Fontwell two starts ago and perhaps the switch to fences will help this 5yo tap back into the promise he showed over hurdles in France in March 2022; Gary Moore has won two of the last three runnings.

Ex-French 5yo who remains unexposed; easily his best run for this yard was after a break at Fontwell two weeks ago (2m3f, good) when he remained on the scene despite racing freely up front; considered off an untouched mark.

Front-runner who won three good-ground chases in early part of 2022-23 season (2m1f-2m5f); bettered low-key reappearance run when respectable fifth at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) three weeks ago but would appeal much more on a quicker surface.

Ex-Oliver Sherwood; has won four of his five races over fences, the last two over 2m4f here on good ground last autumn (struggled home last time); up 23lb in all (just 1lb higher than for last win); obvious contender, but drop in trip a slight concern (has won at 3m).

Launched chasing career with two wins for Oliver Sherwood in the spring and bounced back from a lesser effort when making all to score by just over 7l over C&D (good; cheekpieces refitted) on last month's stable debut; latest 11lb rise asks a question of him but he's probably still on the upgrade.

Won over C&D and at Fakenham (3m, both on good) in his first two starts over fences and he had an excuse when returned to slow ground in his hat-trick bid in July; still looks feasibly treated on his penultimate form and he could resume his progress back in quicker conditions; respected on first run for Harry Derham.

Seems to go well fresh and has finished runner-up here on his seasonal reappearance for the past two years, in 2023 going down by 6.5l off a 7lb higher mark in a C&D handicap chase (good); hasn't run as well since.

Little of note in his form apart from second in a 2m chase at Roscommon in August 2022; beaten over 20l in sixth behind Private Ryan in a recognised trial for this event here in February; had been off for a long time, so was entitled to need the race; Patrick Mullins takes the ride.

Ex-David Elsworth and then Sylvester Kirk; fared okay on chasing debut at Newcastle (third, beaten 12.5l by Six One Nine) in December, and also a creditable fourth at Warwick (2m, good; beaten 4.25l) a fortnight ago; still low mileage, so can't be discounted in this newly applied tongue-tie.

0-7 on Flat and 0-4 over jumps; however, posted a solid effort at Newcastle (2m, good; chase debut) four months ago, finishing third behind a pair of subsequent scorers; now effectively 5lb lower, back off proper mark; unexposed over fences and he could be dangerous.
