Capable sort over fences although he can on occasions look less than straightforward but showed he was in good form when winning at Stratford over 5f further. Given too much to do last time but remains of interest at this level if he handles this tri
Hurdles winner off a 5lb lower mark who looked as though he would make the transition to fencing if his debut effort at Carlisle is any guide. Jumped soundly to finish a respectable fourth (not beaten far); a repeat of that would see him go close.
Dual course winner (once over this trip) last season; hasn't quite been in the same form last two runs but they have come in deeper contests than this (one over a trip too sharp). This grade/trip/track far more his standard; could well bounce back.
Not the most consistent but can win at this level on his day adding a seventh chase victory to his CV at Fontwell in March in a weak race over 2m2f. Last two effort (if you can call them that) have shown his moody side; hard one to totally trust.
His form figures paint him in a decent light but the performances behind them aren't as rosy; looks a rather quirky and paceless sort. Struggled to stay 3m last time so this trip should; hard to say that he truly convinces as a winner.
Formerly a useful sort but those days are well behind him now and although he's capitalised on much-reduced mark twice last year he looks to have lost his way at the moment. Three most recent efforts are far from inspiring; best watched.
Fortunate to open his chasing account (leader feel at the last; well clear) but landed his second success (after a break) in much more style at Plumpton. That was only a weak affair but this isn't much better; should play a part.
Hardly the most consistent sort and has fallen long way in the weights which enabled him to finish second over 3m here last time. Handicapper has rather harshly pushed him up 6lb for that defeat; makes it harder for him to build on that run.
If he could reproduce his recent hurdles runs over fences then he would have a chance here although the long losing run is a concern. Still relatively unexposed over fences (0-5); visor may well help again to eke out some further progress.
