Failed to settle and soundly beaten when back up to 2m4f in Kempton Grade 2 last month; this two-time Grade 1 winner was previously a good second to Jonbon in the Grade 1 Tingle Creek at Sandown (1m7f, heavy) and holds leading claims if producing a performance of that ilk.

T: Alan King

High-class 2m chaser on his day, winner of the Arkle and Tingle Creek in 2022; has played second fiddle to Jonbon in both starts this season and now turns his attention away from the Champion Chase route to a possible Ryanair tilt, with the rethink on distance a logical move at this point; ran well over hurdles on sole 2m4f attempt; withdrawn twice due to good ground, raced mainly on softer; top on peak form.

Three-time Grade 1 winner over 2m; well beaten by Jonbon on his reappearance but finished considerably closer to that rival in yesterday's Tingle Creek; having such a hard race would temper enthusiasm should he turn up here, and he's tried 2m4f only once before when third in a big-field handicap hurdle (April 2021).

Raced mainly on ground softer than good; flopped in the 2023 Champion Chase and, although performing better, proved no match for Jonbon in the Shloer on reappearance; however, he's 2-2 at Sandown having been impressive in the Henry VIII in 2021 and this contest last year; could well raise his game back here.

Won the Arkle over C&D (good to soft) in March 2022 and reappeared last season with easy win in the Tingle Creek at Sandown (1m7f, good to soft); narrowly beaten by Editeur Du Gite here (2m, soft) in January; flopped in Champion Chase here in March but can play a leading role if back to his best.
