Finally gained breakthrough success in Grade Two Peterborough Chase at Huntingdon latest over 2m4f where he was highly impressive winning by 8L. Step up from 2m seems to have unlocked further progress and good chance to follow up here.
Diminutive chaser but winner of a Grade One and three Grade Twos over fences. Good third over hurdles in Grade One Long Walk on seasonal reappearance last month but better still over fences and very high class over this sort of trip.
Incredible novice season saw him win eight times including an Ascot Grade Two (3m). Second in Charlie Hall on reappearance before pulling up in Ladbrokes Trophy latest in quieter 18/19 campaign. Drop in trip here the biggest question mark.
Fast ground lover, a six-time winner over fences but no match for Charbel at Huntingdon latest (fifth beaten 21L). 6lb better off with that rival and possibly quicker surface but reversal very unlikely.
Highly progressive chaser won twice last season before coming up slightly short in top grade contests. Sound return in a handicap with before no match for Altior here (fourth of five). Blinkers tried now but bit to find with top two.
