Form & Verdict
Dual hurdle winner (3m1f/3m2f), who got off the mark over fences at Taunton (2m7f, good to soft) last month and he was only narrowly denied in his follow-up bid at this track (2m3f, soft); up another 3lb but he's open to more progress back up in trip and is strongly respected.

Only 14 races and has won three of his last five, latterly making the breakthrough over fences with an idling win at Taunton (2m7f, good to soft); today's softer surface is perhaps a greater concern than the 5lb rise.

Completed a hurdling double over 3m+ in spring 2022 and showed he retains all his ability at just the second time of asking after a long absence when 3l second in 2m4f Wincanton handicap chase 21 days ago, with reopposing pair Gingerbred and Balko Saint behind him; should go well now stepping back up in trip.

Form & Verdict
Three course wins on good and good to soft ground last winter, including a brave win in this race; back on same mark as for last success but he's been out of sorts in three runs this season and last two have been over C&D; has something to prove and he needs to turn things around.

Two chase wins (2m7f/3m2f) last winter and he ended last season with a creditable second at Ludlow in March; has won when fresh in the past and needs a close look on his return; best form on good/good to soft.

Well handicapped on his winning form over hurdles and fences, but it's been hard work this season (chasing) following a long absence; risky in the first-time blinkers (replacing usual cheekpieces).

Form & Verdict
Just one win from 15 starts but that came over fences last winter and he's finished runner-up at Exeter (3m) and Wincanton (3m1f, both on good to soft) in his two runs this season; remains feasibly treated and he should be in the thick of things again; cheekpieces added.
