Form & Verdict
Made good start to chasing career in the autumn, notably when winning at Wetherby (1m7f, soft), and put two non-completions behind him when third at Catterick (2m3f, soft) in February; didn't see out 3m last month, having made bad jumping error at penultimate fence, but remains of interest.

Form & Verdict
Dual chase winner this season (2m3f/2m4f) and ran well in defeat over 3m here last month; holds no secrets from the handicapper but is pretty versatile regarding ground and ought to be right in the thick of things again.

2-4 since switched to fences in the autumn, the latter win gained at Warwick (2m4f, soft) in January; posted another good effort when second at Newbury (2m4f, heavy) this month and will be fine back at 3m; probably won't be far away.

Form & Verdict
Won four chases (2m-2m4f) on good/good to soft ground last year and returned from break with good second at Ayr (2m4f, good) six weeks ago; escaped from that with an unchanged mark and might still be on the upgrade; major player if the ground dries out for him here.

Form & Verdict
Dominated from the front and was set for clearcut win before last-fence fall on seasonal/chase debut at Warwick (3m, soft) in November; two very disappointing efforts followed but he steadied the ship when keeping on from the rear for fifth at Ascot (2m5f, good) last month, despite jumping left throughout; will be suited by this return to a left-handed track and it will be interesting to see whether he reverts to much more positive tactics.

Left disappointing stable debut a long way behind when winning readily in low-grade company at Leicester (2m6f, soft) in January; ought to have coped better with the heavy ground when last of three there in February but sports first-time cheekpieces here and may yet improve again for new trainer.

Looked all about stamina when winning 2m3f maiden hurdle at Lingfield (heavy) for previous yard; had an irregular heartbeat when pulled up on stable debut but has since given a likeable display to win over C&D (soft); up 6lb against better opposition but he can progress as a chaser.
