Form & Verdict
All three wins gained under Brian Hughes and posted a welcome return to form with him on board when second at Newcastle last month; 3lb rise still leaves him on a competitive mark and good effort looks very likely.

Raced mainly on good ground but has run well on soft/heavy; won at Southwell (2m, good) last summer but we haven't seen him since a poor performance in October and he's not one to rely upon.

Form & Verdict
Won only start in Irish points; has shown ability over hurdles, notably when second at Warwick two starts ago, after which the stewards intervened; chasing/handicap debut and no surprise if proved good enough to win.

No match for the winner when second on chase/handicap debut at Southwell (2m, good) and was soon beaten after a mistake at Stratford two weeks ago; could go well if cutting out the mistakes and with cheekpieces added.

Form & Verdict
Only win came two years ago and exposed as moderate; runner-up to a subsequent winner at Fakenham this month, on return from a break/wind surgery; likely to give his running but always likely to be vulnerable.

Form & Verdict
Three Irish chase wins for Joseph O'Brien but the latest of those was in October 2019; unplaced in all nine British starts, during which time his handicap mark has slumped from 135; back from another break and probably worth a market check but others have more obvious claims.

Form & Verdict
Chase winner in Ireland in July 2021, on final start for Henry De Bromhead, but has proved rather disappointing in Britain, though not beaten too far at Fontwell (for Richard Bandey) last month; since sold for £6,500.
