T: Dan Skelton

Has been chasing since November 2022, sole win coming in 2m3f Listed race (soft) in October this term; often highly tried but he never seriously threatened when third off much the same mark in this race last year, his only previous handicap chase, and he wasn't in peak form last two outings.

Started season well with Listed novice win at Chepstow (2m3f, soft) and respectable fifth in the Paddy Power at Cheltenham, but two runs since have been disappointing and Harry Skelton jumps ship to ride Heltenham.
