Has returned from a mammoth break to compete over fences this season, but not got a great deal to show for it, for all he's faced some stiff tests. Hooded now, and needs to improve.
Getting into veteran stage now, and not seen since finishing last of three in a weak Leicester seller on the Flat in May. Claims on pick of his chase form, but risky at present.
Poor Flat maiden who has struggled on both starts over hurdles, and fared no better when last of four on chase debut at Catterick.
Runner-up on both bumper starts for Willie Mullins, and has run respectably from the front over hurdles for current yard. Probably needed run on chase debut after a break, but jumped soundly and should do better.
Fourth on chase debut at Sedgefield in January and filled the same spot behind Roxyfet there last time. Cheekpieces tried now, and not without a chance if they sharpen him up.
Maiden after 37 starts, and no match for Edgar at Leicester last month, with the winner idling in front. Has run well on both starts over hurdles since, but unseated early back over fences last time.
Showed a glimmer of his Irish form at Southwell last summer but he has been back to more mediocre levels since, and makes limited appeal once more.
Form has regressed this season, but handicapper has given him a chance and he stopped the rot when third of 10 to Royal Act at Taunton last time. Needs to prove he can build on that, but every chance if he does.
Failed to win in 14 starts over hurdles, and has failed to complete on both chase starts this year. Hinted at better last time, but easy enough to oppose on balance.
