Veteran; hasn't raced under rules since pulling up in a 2m5f Handicap Chase at Fairyhouse in February 2017 (for Norman Lee); joins this trainer following an unproductive spell in points over the course of the past two years.

Without a win since scoring over this trip at Uttoxeter in September 2017; 8lb lower in the weights nowadays; finished 13L third of six to Global Domination at Warwick (2m4f, good) latest; held by Cnoc Sion.

In good form in late 2018 (won two similar events to this) before appearing in need of the run on his reappearance off a break (pulled up); is capable, but hard to know exactly what to expect this time around.

Runner-up on three occasions over fences so far this calendar year, including off a 2lb higher mark at Uttoxeter (2m6f, good) on his penultimate start; poor latest but can't be ruled out back in trip in a weak race.

8/1

Hurdles maiden (0-12); made a winning start here (2m, good) on his belated rules chasing debut last month when urged along from the second last to spring a 25/1 surprise; form franked with both the second and third winning since; new trip.

Hurdles winner at this track (Sept 2017); 2-13 over fences, with those wins coming fairly recently at Taunton (2m5f+) and Plumpton (2m4f); has work to do with Gentlemen Moore on Uttoxeter form; useful 7lb claimer booked.

19-race maiden (0-11 over fences); jumped poorly and pulled up at Ffos Las (3m, good); blinkers are now applied; thoroughly unappealing.

Hasn't won since May 2016 (Fontwell) and has fallen 14lb in the weights since early this year; plugged on to finish 11½L fourth of nine to Paddys Runner over hurdles at Fontwell (3m2f) latest.

A three-time winner over fences; was beaten 15L when finishing second to a decisive winner over 2m here (good to soft) in May; has turned in a dismal performance at Ffos Las since (Evs).

20/1

Lacks much in the way of experience over fences (0-4); generally forces the pace and often pays the price at the finish for doing so; beaten 13L when finishing second at Ffos Las (2m) on his penultimate start.

Always handy throughout and caused a 66/1 shock when winning at Bangor (2m4f, good) last October; was 8L in front of today's rival Barton Rose (third) when finishing second to Global Domination at Warwick in May.

Won just once in 23 starts over hurdles, and competes from out of the handicap proper; beaten 25L (fourth) on Stratford chasing debut; very unlikely winner.

Betting

Forecast

Samson (5/4), Hillview Lad (8/1), Show's Over (11/1), Torhousemuir (12/1), Vexillum (14/1), Barton Rose (14/1), Mister Mister (16/1), Cnoc Sion (16/1), Gentleman Moore (20/1), Mr Lando (20/1), Centreofexcellence (22/1), Ballycahane (25/1), Starlit Night (50/1), Festive Day (200/1)

Verdict

A weak opener. The veteran HILLVIEW LAD arrived late to fences (under rules) springing a 25/1 surprise over 2m here recently but the chances are that result was no fluke, and he should take the beating if handling this extra half mile. That form has substance with both the runner-up Alltimegold (Ffos Las) and the third Flints Legacy (Cartmel) being subsequent winners. Precious little else in this race makes any significant appeal, although a very tentative each-way poke could be the front-running Mr Lando.
