Has made stunning progress to win eight of his last nine starts and none were more impressive than the latest at Uttoxeter (2m7f, soft), where he was hassled up front off a strong pace and yet still found the reserves to win; may well defy another 4lb rise.

Form & Verdict
Very effective on heavy ground and very well handicapped on old form; looked out of sorts during light campaign last season and it's hard to know what to expect from him on this first start for eight months but he'll be dangerous if back on song.

Reappeared with good second at Uttoxeter (2m7f, soft) in November and he's not ruled out, but this 9yo has a patchy profile nowadays and was soundly beaten at Sandown (2m7f) last time on heavy ground he should have handled.

Stays and his two wins in handicap hurdles came on heavy; lightly raced in recent seasons but close second of five at Uttoxeter (soft) 13 days ago was an upturn in his fortunes and he is very well handicapped on old form.

Stout stayer whose latest winning run was in 2021; few signs of life since back from absence in October and no better for the return to a staying trip at Huntingdon recently; could be a reviver at some stage though.

Form & Verdict
Started off for David Pipe with two emphatic chase wins on slow ground last season but ended that campaign with disappointing effort in March and made low-key reappearance when switched back to hurdling this month; needs to have taken significant benefit from that recent outing.

Impressed when winning on his first two chase starts last season and he's one to watch in the betting; however, he's failed to shine since and lacked spark when pulled up in the Welsh National last time.

Started off for David Pipe with two emphatic chase wins in the mud last winter but there have been three backward steps since, the last two over hurdles in November after wind surgery; unraced beyond 3m1f; form chance if he could surge back to last season's best.
