Form & Verdict
Beat a solid yardstick in Animal on chase debut at Leicester (2m6f, good to soft) and then ran well in defeat at Cheltenham (3m1f, soft); backward step the last time but the cheekpieces tried there are swiftly removed; if back on song he'll go well.

Solid form when making a successful chase debut over C&D (good to soft); ran no sort of race here in January in first-time cheekpieces but the headgear was dispensed with at Plumpton (3m2f, soft) yesterday and he won that amateurs' handicap, albeit fortunate to do so after clear leader unseated at the last; has 7lb penalty if he turns out again one day later.

2-3 over fences and both wins came here, the first at 3m1f (good) and last time prevailing narrowly in the Sussex National (3m4f, soft; just 4lb lower); goes well fresh, still open to improvement and he's with the same owners despite leading Joe Tizzard.

Form & Verdict
A willing winner of two small-field staying chases (on good to soft) around this time last year; today's softer ground won't trouble him and returns on a competitive mark; not easily dismissed, though he has new handling and the absence has to be of some concern.

Ended last season with two wins, the latter in this race (good to soft), and was very unlucky not to complete a hat-trick on last month's reappearance outing at Plumpton (3m1f, soft), where he held clear lead before unseating rider at final fence; back in action before 5lb rise takes effect; not yet proven on heavy ground but still commands respect.
