Didn't jump well prior to unseating in first-time blinkers (retained) at Plumpton last month, and struggling for form previously; however, the return to Lingfield could be a major positive as he won four in a row here in 2021-22 (2m7f, heavy-good to soft) and was runner-up over C&D (good) last February on his only other course visit; very interesting off reduced mark.

13yo whose career best was a 25l win here (3m2f, good to soft) in February, leading from a fairly early stage and going with great verve; creditable second at Fontwell (3m4f, heavy) on reappearance but whether he can cut it in this much higher grade remains to be seen, with two runs last spring casting doubts; 7lb out of the handicap and 7lb-claiming rider is recruited.

Useful staying effort off a similar mark in the Highland National at Perth (3m6f, soft) last spring; didn't run well back at that trip in December but a subsequent fifth of eight at Doncaster (3m, good) was more like it; these conditions will suit and he's of some interest.

A foggy case can be made on some of his French form (stayed 2m7f in the mud) but he was pulled up over fences at the Cheltenham Festival (3m1f) and Newton Abbot (2m5f) in the spring for new connections; had wind surgery in July but again ran moderately on his return to hurdles a month ago; hardly the percentage call.

Finished remote on seasonal/yard debut last winter before winning at Ffos Las (3m, heavy) so perhaps a moderate Aintree return on Boxing Day shouldn't rule him out of this race won by the yard in 2022, especially as he should have some handicapping scope on his past form.

2-11 for Alan King and well handicapped judged on plenty of form from 2020 and 2021; absent 318 days before having three runs for new stable last term, easily the best of which was a short-head win at Ffos Las (3m, heavy; 3lb higher today) in March; the lesser shows have to be a worry but Venetia Williams has brought many of her charges back in storming form this season.

Bettered low-key stable debut when digging deep for short-head success at Ffos Las (3m, heavy) last month; still well handicapped on some of last season's form for Alan King and will be fine on today's faster ground; first attempt at a marathon trip; one to consider.
