Current Ryanair champion, had a tremendous season last year and has run respectably in the face of a couple of tough tasks this season; this much more suitable and might be able to boss this from the front, so every chance of getting back on track.
Wonderfully reliable chaser, finds plenty for pressure and is 2-2 this season, including when taking the Grade 2 Peterborough Chase last time out; won this last year too, and as long as the ground doesn't get desperate, looks the one to beat again.
Useful handicap chaser, winner of a Listed contest at Ayr last spring and has run well in his two starts this year, but has almost 8l to find with Top Notch on their Peterborough Chase form and hard to see why he should turn that around.
Took his form to a new level when a closing-in ¾l second in the Peterborough Chase last time out, which was not expected (went off 100-1); needs to back that up here but conditions look fine to do so, and he looks the fly in the ointment.
Useful in error-prone chaser that took a Graduation chase at Haydock two starts back (form solid enough) but never got in the hunt in the Caspian Caviar handicap at Cheltenham last time, making mistakes; needs to cut those out to hold any chance.
