Form & Verdict
Hasn't really kicked on since winning three-runner handicap on chasing debut in March but bumped into a progressive rival when well-held second at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good) this month and ought to play a significant role on today's terms.

Form & Verdict
Made very good progress over hurdles once fitted with cheekpieces in second half of 2021, winning four times (2m7f-3m2f) along the way; can be excused his Grade 2 defeat in January but today's chasing debut comes after a six-month break and the drop back in trip is not sure to suit.

Form & Verdict
Lightly raced under rules and made impressive start to chasing career this season, winning three small-field novices' handicaps (2m-2m4f) in good style; found Summer Plate at Market Rasen too hot two weeks ago but is back in calmer waters here and commands respect, despite his big penalty.

OR: 125

Form & Verdict
Showed some very usual form in slow-ground bumpers in 2019 and subsequently ran to the equivalent level over hurdles (albeit without winning); makes chasing debut after 541-day absence and on by far the quickest ground he has encountered but is impossible to rule out.
