Hot Recent Form Trainer - 8 wins from 29 in the last 14 days (28%)
Gained back-to-back hurdles wins at Chepstow last year. Not at his best in his three subsequent outings, but there were positives to be taken from last month’s chase debut at Chepstow. Three pounds lower today, and talented claimer takes over.
Second chase run; likely to be far more power-packed before long this term, perhaps today

Finished third in what has turned out to be a useful beginners’ chase at Uttoxeter in October, but he failed to back that performance up at Aintree afterwards. Remains open to improvement in this sphere, albeit it is needed to land this.
Ran well on chasing debut but as if something amiss (lost hind shoes) three weeks later

Got off the mark at the second attempt in this sphere when scoring at Exeter in November. Better than the bare result suggests when fifth over this track and trip latest, gets in here running off the same rating; cheekpieces could eke out more.
Made bright start to chasing career and respectable fifth at Newbury latest; e-w claims

Gained his second chase win when scoring at Sandown on his penultimate outing. Ran up to a similar level of form when fourth at Wincanton afterwards, and he would have finished closer there barring a mistake five from home; claims.
2-15 over fences, latest win at Sandown in December; creditable fourth on heavy last time

Has failed to complete in his three starts since returning from an absence, but he was in the process of running a big race in the Mandarin here latest prior to falling at the final fence. Mark has been left untouched since; thrown in on his best form.
Much more like it again here 18 days ago, headed but close up when he fell at the last

0-12 chasing; placed when first visored last winter but two poor efforts since; wind op

Cold Recent Form Trainer - 0 wins from 22 in the last 14 days (0%)
Sparsely raced in recent years; making his first start since May 2018. The handicapper has given him a chance having dropped him six pounds prior to making his reappearance, but the form of his stable remains a cause for concern.
The trip, ground and layoff all leave him with plenty to prove

Hot Recent Form Trainer - 4 wins from 15 in the last 14 days (27%)
Has occupied the runner-up berth in three of his four starts this season, chasing home the well-treated Hard To Forget at Plumpton latest. Runs off a pound lower today, and his yard is in good form, but others rate as stronger win contenders.
In the first three all four chase starts; stamina seemed taxed over 3m1f (heavy) latest

Verdict

Samburu Shujaa looked a fine prospect for chasing for much of last season. INDY FIVE has a good chance judged on his latest run.
