Form & Verdict
Two more chase wins in March (3m1f, heavy; 3m, soft); kept plugging away when beaten about 4l upped to 3m3f at Stratford last month and should be involved again, although others might have the legs of him around this tight track.

Excellent strike-rate of 5-13 over fences and ran out a 2l winner from Puddlesinthepark over C&D 16 days ago (good; raced prominently); something similar will see him bang there once more, even off 5lb higher.

Form & Verdict
Winner at Leicester (2m6f, soft) in January but has a mixed record in handicaps over hurdles and fences and he didn't run well next time; in better form in first-time cheekpieces (retained) at Bangor since but his fall at the last was a heavy one and he needs to show his confidence is unaffected.

Form & Verdict
Won 2m5f handicap hurdle at Exeter (good to soft) in November; struggled on heavy ground in January but appreciated the return to less testing going when the only one to give an unexposed point winner a race at Chepstow (2m7f, good) 24 days ago; interesting on chase debut.

Form & Verdict
Maiden; mixed fortunes in handicap chases, running encouragingly in the second of them at Ffos Las (3m, soft) in November but he put up no sort of show when favourite at Catterick in January; cheekpieces discarded there, but now back on with tongue-tie added; probably worth another chance.

Left disappointing chase/handicap debut a long way behind when clear second to next-time-out winner at Ffos Las (3m, soft; first-time cheekpieces); didn't appear to get home over 3m5f at Fakenham and remains capable of better; cheekpieces sported the last twice are removed.

Form & Verdict
Major turnaround for the fitting of cheekpieces in early spring, winning over 2m7f at Huntingdon (soft) and Lingfield (heavy); unable to cope with a rise in grade in two starts since but this level is more suitable and the return to soft will also help; involved.
