2-2 as a novice here but looked outclassed in a Grade 2 over 2m5f on reappearance here when behind Gold Present; won a point over 3m but all rules form is at shorter and can take a keen hold.

Held up; last season he won over about this trip in Cheltenham handicaps in January and at the Festival (pipped Rather Be); both were on soft and he's 15lb higher than in March, but he reappeared with another improved effort to take Listed non-handicap event at Carlisle on good and, although handicapper has reacted, no surprise if he remains firmly on the upgrade.

Won competitive handicap at Newbury (2m6f, good to soft) on second chase start last December and followed that with two very easy novice chase wins (2m6f/3m, soft/heavy); fair chance this stiff 2m4f will be fine and remains to be seen where limitations lie; very much respected receiving 6lb from Waiting Patiently.

Returning from a long absence when tailed off on his chase debut behind Count Meribel at Cheltenham in November, and when springing a 50-1 shock at Bangor (2m4f, soft) the race rather fell apart up front, having been held up well off the pace; still did well to win given he kept jumping out to his right and he looked promising during his younger days.

Couple of Grade 2 novice chase wins at Kempton (2m/2m4f) last winter, making all in four-runner races; still has potential but he's not sure to have things his own way in this bigger field; beaten favourite on reappearance.

Last season ended with narrow win over 2m3f at Ascot (good to soft; not proven on worse) in December but he made light of 11-month absence when well on top with an extremely fluent display at same track (good) three weeks ago on step up to 2m5f; up another 9lb but the first two were well clear last time and absolutely no surprise if this 7yo (who's 5-8 over fences) is still on an upward curve.

Collected three small-field novice chases last season; that was a very solid campaign but she needs to build on it, as well as her reappearance second to Mister Whitaker at Carlisle in November; still seemed to be travelling well when brought down four out in top handicap here in November, but too far out to predict where she'd have finished.

Won twice at about this trip on sharper tracks much earlier in career but kept to 2m since a narrow defeat over 2m4f nearly two years ago; in fair form of late and is handily weighted but this is a tough track on which to prove he needs this trip.

Off since turned over at 1-3 in muddling novice chase in February; had previously won well in first two chases and on the form of latter success at Ascot, is of strong interest off this 8lb higher mark; ran well in a competitive handicap hurdle here in 2017 and everything in place (goes well fresh) for a bold show here.

Campaigned at about 2m since early 2017 and usually wears cheekpieces, but losing run is mounting up and this experiment is worth a shot (returns to 2m4f with headgear removed); Grade 1 novice winner at Aintree two seasons back and has the ability to take a serious hand.

Won the Rowland Meyrick (3m, soft) on this card last season and faced tough assignments (4m/4m2f) on final two starts last season, so unwise to be overly harsh about those performances; has had wind op since; however, there's a suspicion that this reappearance trip will be on the sharp side.

Hasn't won since Grade 1 novice victory at Aintree (2m4f) 20 months ago; on a very good mark on that old form and something of a revival when second in a first-time visor (retained since) over 2m5f here before struggling in the big staying handicap at Newbury; as there, stamina may find him out.

Not seen over hurdles since 2014 but has shown some very useful chase form since then and seems very versatile regarding trip/ground; not firing on all cylinders this season but stuck to his task well when second over 3m2f here in July and will appreciate this significant drop in class.
