Series of excellent efforts before losing his unbeaten record over fences when third at the Cheltenham Festival. That was a fine effort, though, and he has to enter calculations despite conceding weight all round.
Brought down at the Cheltenham Festival, but had shown an aptitude for fences by winning three of his four previous starts over the bigger obstacles. Promising and likely to be on the premises on seasonal reappearance.
Winner of three of his six starts over fences and was successful on the last two of them in the spring. Progressive and stable remains in good form.
Long way behind Benatar at Ascot in December, but improved and ran a fine race to chase home a solid rival at Ayr in April. Leading stable, which won this last year, is yet to hit top form, but he is progressive and likely to be thereabouts.
Pulled up behind Beggar's Wishes at Haydock in May, but may have been over the top by then and earlier efforts give him a chance at these weights. Can belt a fence and others come with less risks attached.

Benatar (15/8), Dolos (11/4), One For Billy (3/1), Rocklander (4/1), Le Rocher (5/1), Beggar's Wishes (8/1)
