Form & Verdict
Unseated at first fence on chase debut in December 2022 but showed improved form on belated second chase start at Uttoxeter (3m2f, heavy) this January when winning by 11l; unexposed in this sphere and could take an 8lb rise in his stride; strong contender.

Form & Verdict
Has been unable to exploit his reduced mark and is now 0-15 over fences; however, he often runs well in defeat, as when third at Ffos Las (3m, heavy) last month, and he might not be far away.

Current mark reflects a decline in his form, and latest defeat took his chase record to 0-14; however, now looks very well handicapped on best efforts and this is a drop in grade; not devoid of hope.

0-13 over fences, disappointing, and he continues to drop down the weights; not disgraced in small-field events on last two starts (staying on over 3m2f on latest) but others have more pressing claims.

OR: 120

Form & Verdict
Ran well in first-time cheekpieces when runner-up at Doncaster (2m3f, good) in January; also effective on soft ground; it's possible he'll be vulnerable to stronger stayers at this longer trip but he could have more to offer in the retained headgear and is entitled to respect.

Not seen to best effect over 3m on soft ground three weeks ago but responded well to first-time cheekpieces when second at Doncaster (2m3f, good) two starts ago, and that piece of form gives him claims here.

Sole win came over hurdles at this track (2m3f) one year ago; switched to chasing and handicapping over about 3m for his three starts this term, running well for minor honours in two of them; chance on that and he drops back in trip in first-time headgear.

Form & Verdict
10yo; perhaps not the force of old but encouraging fourth at Doncaster (3m, good) in January on second start back from a long absence, faring best of those who raced prominently; continues to drop down the weights; could have a big say if conditions suit (question mark about soft nowadays).

Appeared to need the run at Leicester ten weeks ago on return from lengthy layoff; scored off slightly higher marks in 2020 and 2021; good chance if returning to that form.
