First-time tongue-tie helped when beating Lastofthecosmics at Newcastle (2m6f, soft) in January and returned to that level to finish third at Carlisle (3m1f, good to soft) latterly; not entirely reliable but has the form to feature.

Won off this mark over hurdles at Perth (3m, good to soft) last April; the first-time cheekpieces may help him jump better but that's very much necessary following sizeable defeats this season on his first two chase runs.

T: N W Alexander

C&D winner who has dropped to a tempting mark but he needs to produce more than on his last two starts, most recently a 12l seventh behind a few of these over C&D (good to soft); reapplied cheekpieces replace visor (he's been similarly effective in both forms of headgear in the past).

His last win was was off 1lb higher over C&D in March 2021; lightly raced since but he still retains most of his ability and he caught the eye with his staying-on sixth at Ayr (2m4f, good to soft) last month; wasn't beaten far in that race and he's in the mix back over this more suitable trip.

Form & Verdict
Doesn't look the easiest to predict but he was only narrowly denied by Lastofthecosmics in a 3m Musselburgh handicap before struggling in a Class 2 back there a month ago; this is a lot more realistic and has it in him to go well.
