2015 Cheltenham Gold Cup winner, but he has won just one of his seven starts since. Last seen finishing pulled up in the King George in December. This is easier, but he does look vulnerable here carrying top weight.
2015 Gold Cup winner; big chance judged on reappearance third in November

Winner of the Grade 2 Reynoldstown Chase on this card last year. Without a win from his three starts this term, but this trip looks more suitable than the 2m4f he tackled at Kempton last time out. Leading claims back in handicap company.
Second in 2m4f Listed event at Kempton last time; 3m again is a plus but high enough mark

Can find form from nowhere, as he showed when landing this contest last season. Now running off just a two-pound higher mark, but he was well held in a handicap hurdle at Aintree last time out. Should find at least a couple too strong here.
Current form the issue but he bounced back to win this last year and is worth considering

Without a win since landing a handicap chase at Chepstow in October 2016. Now back down to that last winning mark, but he has been out of sorts the last twice. Stable holds stronger claims here with Black Corton.
Would have a good shout on his second in valuable C&D contest in November

Left Sue Smith’s yard after finishing a distant tenth at Cheltenham in April. Made a very underwhelming debut for these connections when seventh in a handicap hurdle at Southwell in December. Readily opposed today.
Decent at best but well beaten on stable/seasonal debut when hurdling in December

Winner of a handicap chase at Wincanton on his penultimate outing. Not disgraced when third in a Listed chase at Doncaster afterwards, but he does need a shade more to be competitive from his current handicap mark.
Sound third in major 3m Doncaster handicap last time; bit more probably needed

Had a rare off day when sixth in the Rowland Meyrick at Wetherby last time out. The assessor has dropped him two-pound since that run, but he arrives here still a stone above his last winning handicap mark.
Weighted to his best even if reviving and others are preferred

Beaten Favourite - Losing favourite last time out
Six-length winner of a handicap chase at Wincanton in December. Finished a respectable fourth in the Mandarin Chase at Newbury last time out. Up a further three-pound today, however, and this drop-in trip does not look an obvious plus.
Up 3lb in a better race now but this in-form 6yo probably has more to come
