Capable performer on his day as he underlined with a third at last year's Cheltenham Festival, but he has not always been the safest of conveyances and tipped up at Haydock last time. Feasibly weighted and ground should suit.
Going well in first-time cheekpieces when tipping up three fences from home over 4m at Kelso on latest start. Runs off the same mark, but stays all day and may find this a bit sharp.
Capable performer in his prime, but not so good these days and was well behind in a Cheltenham cross-country race when last seen in December. Slipping down the weights, but needs to show more.
In the twilight of his career, but has shown enough to suggest another win is within his capabilities. Ran well to be second of three at this venue two starts ago and is 1lb lower.
Beaten quite a long way despite finishing second of seven at Kempton last time. Scored at Newbury off 3lb lower last March so certainly not out of it if in the same mood.
Fakenham winner off 7lb lower last March and has not shaped badly in third on last two starts. Remains a little high in the weights, but is not out of it.
