Good third in a 3m novice chase at Ffos Las (heavy) on debut over fences last time out. Repeat of that can see him go well switched to handicaps.
Three time winner over hurdles but well beaten in a heavy ground novice chase at Ffos Las last month. Worth a check in the market on handicap debut.
Dual hurdles winner including on soft ground over an extended 2m3f at Wetherby in January. Pulled up on subsequent handicap debut over around this distance and interesting to see how he fares on chase debut.
Completed a hat-trick when winning over 2m4f at Uttoxeter (heavy) in a handicap hurdle in January. Market support would be notable on debut over fences.
Placed on seven of his ten chase starts including when third over an extended 2m5f at Market Rasen (good-to-soft) last month. Likely to find at least one too good once more.
Good-to-soft ground hurdles winner over 2m7f at Exeter in April. Well beaten upped to an extended 3m2f last time out and drop in trip should suit on chase debut.
Maiden hurdle winner over 2m7f on good-to-soft ground at Bangor in April. Ran well until falling on chase debut at Ascot (3m, good-to-soft) last month and interesting to see how he fares.
Dual hurdles winner most recently over an extended 2m3f at Carlisle (heavy) in March. Highly tried subsequently and disappointed on last months seasonal reappearance. Debuting over fences.
Point-to-point winner and placed in a bumper and over hurdles so far. Struggled over 2m4f on seasonal debut last month and worth a check in the market on chase and handicap debut.
Ten race maiden finished well held in a chase over an extended 2m6f at Newbury (good) last month. Switch to handicaps in his favour.
Heavy ground novices' handicap hurdle winner over an extended 2m5f at Exeter in April. Fair fifth on seasonal debut here last time out and market support would be notable on chase debut.
