The Class 2 Handicap Chase over 2m6f looks a competitive affair but the horse that takes the eye for us is Killer Clown for Emma Lavelle.
The seven year old progressively got better last term when taken over the bigger obstacles, having shown glimpses of form over hurdles the season before.
Having unseated his rider on chase debut, he then went to Uttoxeter and finished a good sixth of 18 in a handicap chase showing that he jumped fairly well.
Next time out he stepped up again to finish third behind Alnadam at Sandown, but then reversed the form with that horse when winning at Kempton on Boxing Day in a tough Limited Handicap Chase.
Up 15lb for that win he finished a length second at Newbury over 2m4f in the Greatwood Gold Cup Handicap Chase, which was arguably a career best run.
He finished the season off with another credible third in a Handicap Chase at Sandown off a mark of 141.
Back this term looking to step up to graded company in the Old Roan Chase he was outclassed into sixth, looking to need the run.
He should be much fitter for that event and back into a handicap off a mark of 138, which is the same as his second in the Greatwood Gold Cup, he should go well.
