J: Lewis Stones

T: Sam England

0-21 over hurdles/fences prior to winning at Haydock (2m4f, soft) last Saturday; over half the fences were omitted and his strike-rate suggests he's not an obvious one to follow up, but he frequently finishes placed and has run well over this C&D on heavy going; could give another good account.

Form & Verdict
In good form over hurdles last month and won when back over fences at Doncaster (2m3f, soft) last time, which was his second chase start; beat just three rivals but he's gone up only 2lb and is unexposed in this sphere.

J: Sean Bowen

Dual hurdle winner who has won two of his four chase starts including over C&D (heavy) last Tuesday; this is tougher under a penalty but he showed plenty of determination last time and should have more to offer in this sphere; respected.

Form & Verdict
Made it two wins from his last three starts when scoring at Leicester (2m4f, soft) on March 8 and fair third at Uttoxeter (2m4f, heavy) a fortnight ago, when behind two horses with official marks of 120 and 121; he drops back into a 0-110 this afternoon and could play a leading role.

Currently in a consistent vein of form and this drop back in grade is perfect, having gained both wins in Class 5 (at Leicester on soft ground); solid chance.

Made it 0-20 when below-par fourth at Uttoxeter a fortnight ago (2m4f, heavy; Nine Nine Nine third); however, he's finished second no fewer than 11 times, including over this C&D (heavy) last month, and he can be thereabouts if bouncing back from last time.

Form & Verdict
Tailed off (bled from the nose) on his chase and handicap debut at Leicester (2m4f, soft) three weeks ago but that doesn't tell the full story as he was going well when making a very bad blunder three out; that was his first run for nearly a year and this unexposed 6yo is an interesting contender.
