Thorough stayer who was useful in his prime and has finished second three times in recent months (3m-3m3f); versatile regarding ground and tactics; will probably be on the premises again.

He was 26lb higher when last successful three years ago (2m7f, good); clearly not as good now but arrives here after two seconds in staying chases on soft ground; unlikely to be too far away.

Form & Verdict

Low-mileage 5yo who improved to make a winning chase debut at Huntingdon (2m7f, good; first-time cheekpieces) in April and probably bettered that performance when close third over C&D (good to soft) three weeks ago; probably still has more to offer; must be considered.

Well beaten when returned to fences in December and not seen since, but he looks well treated on some of his 2022-23 hurdling form for Tony Martin and is worth keeping an eye on in the betting.

Form & Verdict

0-4 over fences but ran big race and looked sure to win until tying up in closing stages at Chepstow (3m2f, good) in April; nudged up only 1lb for that performance and will play a major role if the first-time cheekpieces have any positive effect.

Seemingly back in good nick when keeping-on third at Catterick (3m1f, soft) last month, his third start after a long absence, and ought to be better suited by today's faster ground; raced a bit too freely and didn't jump well enough when well-held fifth at Huntingdon on latest outing but might fare better here.

Has a rather mixed record over fences since joining current stable in the autumn but won readily at Leicester (2m6f, soft) in January and both runs in cheekpieces this spring were very creditable; could still have a bigger performance in him; high on the list.

A multiple winner in Ireland for Gordon Elliott but he ended his time there out of form and has been below his best both starts for his current yard, a never-dangerous fourth over 2m5f here on the latter occasion; more is required despite a falling mark.
