Went backwards from reappearance effort at Cheltenham last month and has something to prove back over fences here. Cheekpieces on first time.

Completed hat-trick in 8-runner handicap chase at Perth (23.8f, good to soft) 19 days ago. 6 lb higher now but looks the one to beat nonetheless.

Not the force of old but showed he still has something to offer when fourth at Chepstow (23.6f) in October. Been disappointing since but this easier grade could spark a return to form.

Not scored since 2017 and well held on final start for previous yard in Ireland. Market may provide best guide to expectations on debut for new connections here. Had wind operation.

7/2
Point/hurdle winner who got back on track when making all in 3m1f Hereford handicap chase in February. Respectable fifth since and should be in the mix again. Tongue strap on first time.

12/1
Struck for the first time since 2018 when making all over hurdles at Exeter in February. However, tame effort at Warwick since and he's opposable back over fences.

Chepstow winner in 2019/2020 but just the one decent effort last term and makes limited appeal.
