Former point-to-pointer is easily the most experiences over fences and indeed has already won a race at Bangor over 3m. Gives weight to all here and based on hurdles form of his rivals he is very unlikely to prove good enough.
Grade One winning hurdler makes his eagerly awaited chasing debut here. Could easily develop into an RSA chase candidate and with trainer firing in winners he is expected to make this a winning debut over fences.
Could have won both chase starts to date. All but fell when clear at the last at Kempton before being brought down when cruising at Wincanton. Second behind Presenting Percy at Cheltenham festival back over hurdles and respected here.
Won a couple of novice hurdles before running respectably in Neptune at Cheltenham behind Willoughby Court. Won 3m point-to-point so should stay and looks a smart prospect.
Kept mainly good company over hurdles and put up a string of consistent efforts. Recent chase debut at Chepstow saw him second to Mia's Storm and with that experience a boost he could go well.
