Form & Verdict
3-10 over fences, carries a 5lb penalty and probably lacks the potential of some of these; pulled up in Grade 2 novice chase at Wincanton three weeks ago but the ground was reported to be slippery; his three chase wins have all come this year (2m/2m3f, good/good to firm) and his experience is a plus; no surprise if he bounces back to form with a bold show.

Made it 3-3 over hurdles (2m3f/2m4f, good-soft) when landing the Grade 1 Challow here last December and he returned to form when making all in fine style on his chase and seasonal debut at Warwick (2m4f, good to soft) this month; that performance gives him leading claims here.

He was making it 3-3 over hurdles when an impressive winner of the Grade 1 Challow at Newbury last Christmas (2m4f, soft) but the wheels came off at Cheltenham and Aintree (raced freely with and without a hood); could quite easily brush aside those setbacks now he goes over fences after wind surgery, and his yard had a good weekend.

Form & Verdict
Won a maiden hurdle at Doncaster (2m5f, good to soft) in January and was bang there when falling at the final flight in a Listed novice at Huntingdon (2m3f, soft) in February; unexposed and brings potential to this chase debut but others have more substance to their form; unraced on good ground.

Form & Verdict
Won a Grade 2 novice hurdle (2m3f, good) at Chepstow last October and landed a competitive handicap hurdle at Punchestown (2m3f, yielding) in April; possesses considerable ability but it's disconcerting he jumped badly right and unseated his rider at the first fence on his recent chase debut.

Form & Verdict
Progressive in handicap hurdles last term and won on chase debut in Listed intermediate event at Carlisle (2m4f, soft) last month; a 5lb penalty makes things tougher here but he should have a bright future over fences and can give another good account if handling the ground (unraced on good going).
