Mixed record over hurdles but made winning start over fences in 4-runner handicap at Southwell (20.4f) in November and followed up at same course (25.8f) 19 days later. Still fairly treated on first run since so should make a bold bid for the hat-trick if ready to go.

Scored at Market Rasen in August but something to prove after 2 poor efforts 5 months apart.

Hurdles winner for Tim Reed earlier this season and shaped well when third at Ffos Las on stable debut, despite looking unsuited by emphasis on speed. Badly hampered next time and remains of interest stepping up in trip. Headgear on.

Modest on the Flat/hurdles. Not an obvious chasing type.

Maiden hurdler who unseated early on first try chasing but showed a bit when 10 lengths third of 10 in a novices' handicap at Worcester (23f) next start. Let down by jumping at Newton Abbot since, however. Off 6 months.

Hit-and-miss since scoring over fences at Huntingdon in November 2020 but does arrive on the back of a couple of decent efforts over hurdles.

Winner over hurdles at Bangor in January 2021. Mixed bag since, well held at Carlisle when last seen in February. Bit to prove back over fences.

Well backed when off the mark at Fontwell in February (second won next-time out) but couldn't replicate that effort at Taunton. Back on track when third in this headgear at Stratford 7 weeks ago and warrants respect now chasing (half-brother to smart chaser Drovers Lane).

Good efforts over fences of late, looking a real stayer, and should pick up a race. Headgear tried.

Better known as a hurdler and shaped as though further will suit when third back over fences at Southwell last month. Change of headgear.

Poor form over hurdles but took a small step forward when fifth of 18 in handicap hurdle at Exeter (23.1f, good to soft, 18/1) 30 days ago and may do better as a chaser.

Forecasts

That Ole Chestnut (4/1), Time Leader (11/2), Mozzaro (13/2), Captain Grinnaway (7/1), Mackie Dee (15/2), Fraterculus (8/1), Tigers Roar (17/2), Sartene's Son (14/1), Vetoncall (14/1), Cloud Formation (16/1), Thais Toir (20/1), Writteninthesand (22/1), Glan Y Gors (28/1), Vinnie's Getaway (40/1)

Verdict

MOZZARO took well to fences last season, winning both his starts at Southwell, and looks up to completing the hat-trick if ready to go. Time Leader should be suited by this longer trip and rates the main threat ahead of chase-debutant That Ole Chestnut.
