Useful handicapper (6-14 over fences), and seemed to excel himself when fourth to Altior in Celebration Chase at Sandown last time. Possibly flattered by that, but entitled to respect on balance.
Stablemate of Vosne Romanee, and looks second-string on riding arrangements, but comes here off a career-best win at Kelso, and clearly can't be ignored.
Made all to gain back-to-back chase wins here a year ago, and better for return when third of 6 to Northern Beau in mares handicap chase at Cheltenham last time. Tongue tied now, and every chance on form.
Lightly raced in recent seasons, but looked better than ever on return from a break when coming from last to first to win at Perth last month. Big chance if he can repeat that effort here.
Back to best for current yard when winning at Bangor last month, and matched that form when second of 5 to Dolos at Kempton last time. This looks a fair bit tougher.
