Likeable sort who underlined an excellent attitude when battling hard to gain his second chasing success at Taunton in March 2019. Absent since the following month so well-being is an unknown.

Dual winner in bumpers and came good over hurdles in 23f Exeter novice (heavy) last December. Low-key reappearance but any ease in the underfoot conditions would help his cause.

Sent off a big price and weakened out of things on stable debut/reappearance after 10 months off at Aintree a fortnight ago. Has quite a bit to prove as a hurdler. Headgear back on.

All 5 wins have been gained over this C&D, the latest in 12-runner event last month, Sound fourth from this mark at Cheltenham last time and he's of interest back here.

Winner of this race a year ago from 7 lb lower. Also tasted success at Haydock that winter but recent efforts suggest the assessor has him for now. Engaged 2.25 Haydock Saturday.

Landed a touch on first run following wind surgery in 16-runner handicap at Cheltenham a year ago. Another sound effort when fourth in March and he may yet have more to offer up in trip this term.

Runner-up in an Exeter bumper (for Sam Drinkwater) and improved on form achieved in qualifying runs when making a winning handicap bow over this trip in February. This a better race on return.

Signed off time in Ireland with victory and perfect start for new yard at Fakenham (23.4f) in February. Pulled up either side of a runner-up effort at Fontwell and others look more straightforward.

Runner-up on reappearance and given a no-nonsense ride when going one better in novice company at Wetherby last month. Opening mark asks for more, but he's unexposed and on top hands.

Left hurdling debut form behind when game winner of 2½m Fakenham novice last December. Runner-up on Market Rasen handicap bow in February and he may have just needed last month's reappearance.

10/3

Point winner who ended last season firmly on the up, recording a hat-trick of handicap wins. Shaped well (made mistakes) on return at Aintree and current mark looks to underestimate him.

Betting

Forecast

Ashtown Lad (9/4), Jobsonfire (10/3), Sirobbie (11/2), Neville's Cross (13/2), Kansas City Chief (9/1), Duc De Beauchene (14/1), Young Offender (14/1), Come On Teddy (16/1), Silva Eclipse (18/1), Vive Le Roi (22/1), Unwin Vc (28/1), Premier D'troice (33/1), Impulsive Star (50/1), Samuel Jackson (66/1)

Verdict

JOBSONFIRE lost his unbeaten record in handicaps on last month's reappearance, but it was still a run full of promise (did well to finish as close as he did given mistakes he made) and the strong feeling is that his mark remains lenient. C&D specialist Sirobbie has to be a threat, along with Duc du Beauchene.
