Maiden who again hit the frame over fences when runner-up at Doncaster (26f) in January. Struggled at Chepstow (23.6f) in February and this looks less demanding.

Made second start for this yard a winning one over hurdles at Exeter (23f) in December. Creditable efforts in defeat from higher marks thereafter and he's respected now tackling larger obstacles.

Following a break/wind surgery, matched previous best when off the mark over fences at Taunton (23f) in March. Similar form when third from 4 lb higher mark at Kempton and likely to go well again.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

This looks wide open and it may pay to take a chance on the returning HEAVEY. He didn't go without promise in a couple of chase tries last term and, having run well over hurdles when last seen, he may well step up again back over the larger obstacles now. Chase-debutant Huntsmans Jog and the in-form Ebony Gale head up the dangers in the opener.

Betting Forecast

15/2 Big Nasty, 7/2 Heavey, 7/2 Huntsmans Jog (Ire), 13/2 Sizing Cusimano, 11/4 Ebony Gale
