11st 9lb

J: Jordan Nailor

T: Tom Symonds

Had crept up the weights and was found out in a competitive handicap at Ascot last time (2m3f, good to soft); however, he won't mind returning to softer conditions and first-time cheekpieces might trigger something.

10st 8lb

J: Jordan Nailor

T: Tom Symonds

Likeable 6yo whose Exeter win (2m2f, soft) in December was his fourth over hurdles from 11 attempts; followed that with a good second at Sandown (2m4f, soft) four weeks ago; likely to give his running once more but he's creeping up the weights and this is much the most competitive field he's faced.

Probably needed his comeback third here and then won with a bit up his sleeve at Exeter (2m2f, soft), for which a 4lb rise is fair; that's two wins in three runs and he's beginning to click.

5lb higher than for his C&D success in March (good to soft); beaten 15l by a progressive winner on his return at Sandown (2m4f, soft) and might well come on for that run; hard to dismiss.

J: Daryl Jacob

T: Tom Symonds

Dual hurdle winner on soft ground in France but pulled up both starts on heavy, one last December on his second British start; on the up in his next three outings (on good and good soft, including 2m2f Exeter win) and shaped as though he needed the run on soft-ground reappearance last month; just a 5yo and probably well handicapped if back to his best.
