Won first 2 chase starts last autumn but winless since, and disappointed at Leicester last time. Change of headgear. Others preferred.

Consistent over hurdles last season and Carlisle reappearance run easily excused having returned lame. Not seen to best effect at Wetherby since so not taken lightly on chase bow (half-brother to smart chaser Does He Know). Hooded.

Comes here in fine fettle, completing the hat-trick in emphatic fashion at Ffos Las (2m) under this rider 20 days ago, value for extra given how the race developed. Assessor has reacted but serious claims once more in bid to land 4-timer.

Showed a fair level of ability in 4 hurdle starts in 2020/21. Easy to back and understandably shaped as if needing last month's belated return/chase debut effort at Catterick and this should reveal a good deal more.

Fair 19f winner over hurdles but not gone on from a promising start over fences, though might have needed the run on yard debut at Musselburgh latest.

Put it all together for this first time over fences when off the mark in this sphere here (25f) 2 weeks ago, getting into an excellent rhythm reverted to front-running tactics. Remains well handicapped on hurdles form.

8/1
Point winner who capitalised on much-reduced mark when making final hurdles start for Phil Kirby a winning one at Hexham last winter, landing a gamble in the process. Arguably would have done the same under a more efficient ride switched to fences by new yard at Newcastle on return. Big shout.

Won this race off 8 lb higher last season and big step back in right direction when third at Sedgefield 12 days ago, so needs taking seriously.

Improved when stepped up to 3m last season, winning at Newcastle in April. Well held next 3 starts, however, so bit to prove now chasing and back down in trip.

No show in 4 starts over hurdles and he's hard to warm to on this chase debut from out of the handicap.

Forecasts

Roccowithlove (9/4), Bolsover Bill (11/4), Where's Hector (8/1), Mcgarry (8/1), Relkadam (10/1), Crack Du Ninian (10/1), En Meme Temps (11/1), Ribeye (16/1), Dogem By Design (18/1), Dharan (40/1)

Verdict

MCGARRY landed a gamble over hurdles on his final start for Phil Kirby last winter and arguably would have done the same under a more efficient ride switched to fences by his new yard at Newcastle on his return last month, clearly paying the price for making his move sooner than ideal, and he's taken to make amends. The thriving Bolsover Bill is an obvious threat as he bids for the 4-timer, while Roccowithlove came good over fences here 2 weeks ago and remains on a fair mark.
