Having tumbled down the weights, and having had wind surgery, he returned to form with a win at Newcastle (2m7f, good) recently; that was a weak four-runner race but he's back up just 3lb and could go well once more.

Some respectable chase form this autumn but now 0-13 over fences

Won Limerick maiden hurdle in July and some respectable runs over fences for Gordon Elliott in the first half of this autumn; however, having been unplaced on his first two starts for this stable his chasing record is now 0-13, and he could probably do with more help from the handicapper.

0-14 over fences but on a handy mark and can't be discounted in this modest race

0-14 over fences and his last hurdle win came in 2018; claims aren't compelling on recent evidence but he's on a handy mark on this year's best form and can't be discounted in what is a modest race.

Form can be up and down, and soundly beaten latest, but not ruled out off competitive mark

His form can be up and down and he was soundly beaten at Kelso last month after a break, but he's now just 3lb higher than when winning at Hexham in May and is not ruled out.

Some creditable efforts at Sedgefield of late and going back right-handed might help

Longstanding maiden who is 4lb out of the handicap today; however, there have been creditable efforts in defeat at Sedgefield on his last three starts (2m5f/3m3f), when jumping to the right each time, and he could be suited by today's return to a right-handed track; one to consider.

Won Perth maiden hurdle in August and was running creditably when falling at the final fence at Carlisle in October; well handicapped on those efforts but has been tailed off the last twice and a major turnaround is needed.

Now 7lb lower than when winning over hurdles at Perth in July 2020 but he returned from a long absence this autumn and has been well beaten on both runs, over hurdles then his chase debut; something to prove.

Tailed off over hurdles the last twice, most recently her reappearance 20 days ago; something to prove on today's chase debut but she may have needed her last run and this lightly raced 8yo won over hurdles here (3m, good) in March; versatile ground-wise; no forlorn hope if taking to fences.

Late in the day for this 9yo to make his chase debut but he's been in good form over hurdles of late, winning at Ayr (3m, good) then a good second at Newcastle (2m7f, good); strong claims in this weak race if transferring that ability to fences at first attempt; might not want soft ground.

Won over hurdles in June and she was runner-up in her sole point, so it's possible she'll take to fences; however, this inconsistent mare has been soundly beaten over hurdles the last twice and needs to up her game.
