Very smart chaser who arrives on back of good third to Galvin in Grade 3 at Punchestown last month. Much repsected Irish raider.

Has quickly made up into a very smart chaser and made it 3-4 in this sphere in 23f Wexford listed event last month. Sound jumper who looks to have got in lightly for his handicap bow. Leading player.

Big improver last term when an impressive all-the-way winner of this contest. Had wind op before encouraging Cheltenham fourth on his return, so another bold showing is on the cards.

Arrives on a losing run, but he's a smart chaser who posted good second to Galvin in Grade 3 at Punchestown last month. Others look better treated at these weights, however.

Off 11 months but he got off the mark at the sixth attempt over fences with a much-improved display in 3m Limerick handicap last month. Hit with 12 lb rise but looks the pick of the Mullins trio.

Fine second to Monkfish in Cheltenham Grade 1 in spring and back to winning ways in 20f Carlisle listed chase on his return. Not disounted for in-form yard with this return to further sure to suit.

Scored four times in a fine first campaign over fences, and he has taken his form up another notch this term, runner-up in Charlie Hall at Wetherby. Tongue strap back on, and he's no forlorn hope.

Bagged 4 out of his first 5 outings over fences last term and he got right back on track after 10 months off when fourth in 3m Chepstow handicap on his return. This is much tougher, however.

Talented when on-song and he landed 3m Ascot handicap last term. Yet to fire in two runs this season however, so others are much preferred despite yard going well,

C&D scorer but winless since 2019, and he failed to build on previous promise when only 15th in handicap hurdle at Cheltenham in the spring. Goes back chasing now with plenty to prove.

Awarded bet365 Chase at Sandown in the spring and he comes here on the back of excellent second in Badger Beer Chase at Wincanton. Reliable sort who is shortlisted off an unchanged mark.

Took really well to fences last term, and first past post in bet365 Chase at Sandown only to be disqualified for bumping rival late. Course winner who has more to offer, and firmly in the picture.

Quickly made up into a smart novice chaser last term, and he made an encouraging return when third over hurdles at Aintree. Remains quite unexposed over fences, and he shouldn't be underestimated.

Very useful staying chaser on his day who got back on track when runner-up in 25f Cheltenham handicap on his return. Also fourth in this event 12 months ago, so can't be ruled out despite 5 lb rise.

Looked excellent prospect for Paul Nicholls when taking Grade 2 novice here but failed to go on as expected. Visor on. Has slipped to a good mark though so interesting on his debut for in-form yard.

Forecasts

Eklat De Rire (3/1), Fiddlerontheroof (9/2), Ontheropes (8/1), Enrilo (8/1), Remastered (11/1), Demachine (16/1), Cloth Cap (16/1), Kitty's Light (16/1), The Hollow Ginge (22/1), Danny Whizzbang (22/1), Potterman (25/1), Annamix (28/1), Copperhead (28/1), Cloudy Glen (33/1), Mister Malarky (33/1), One More Fleurie (33/1), Brahma Bull (40/1), Fortescue (50/1), Full Back (50/1), Brave Eagle (50/1), Canelo (66/1)

Verdict

Lots with a chance in an ultra competitive Ladbrokes Trophy, so at the likely odds it is worth siding with DANNY WHIZZBANG to capitalise on a much-reduced mark and bounce back in style on his debut for the resurgent Milton Harris. Improving second-season chasers Eklat de Rire and Fiddlerontheroof are both greatly feared, while Remastered, Kitty's Light and Enrilo all figure on the shortlist too.

  1. DANNY WHIZZBANG (IRE)
  2. EKLAT DE RIRE (FR)
  3. FIDDLERONTHEROOF (IRE)
