Form & Verdict

Stayed on well for fourth off a steady pace at Ascot (1m4f, good to soft) three runs back and soft ground was perhaps not to his liking the next time; his seventh of 22 in York's Melrose (1m6f) wasn't too bad an effort and he's in calmer waters here.

Entitled to be winning races off his current mark and it was a return to form when a close fourth of ten in Haydock's Old Borough Cup (1m6f, good to firm) 12 days ago; comes into it.

travelled strongly, in touch with leaders, went third before 5th, went second and going best 2 out, shaken up and led approaching last, kept on, ridden out (trainer's rep said, regarding the apparent improvement in form, that gelding had come back into form on the Flat where he has run four times since his last hurdles run and appeared to transfer that improvement back over hurdles)

Form & Verdict

Made most of the running when winning this 12 months ago as a 3yo in first-time cheekpieces; finished second on last month's belated reappearance at Musselburgh (1m6f, good) but he's finished well beaten since then after refusing to settle; he's on a harsh enough mark even if he does return to form without the cheekpieces.

Campaigned at 1m6f-2m since August 2020, including for Yarmouth success, but recent efforts suggest he may well benefit from this drop back in trip with visor applied; two attempts over 1m4f include a creditable effort at Royal Ascot last year; AW debut; one to consider.

Form & Verdict

Well treated on his old form and rediscovered some spark in the new visor when second at Salisbury, only to then finish last at Ascot (again 1m6f on good to soft); no obvious reason to get excited over the return of cheekpieces.

Carrying his head awkwardly didn't stop him from winning by 4l at Brighton in May (1m4f, good) but that was a Class 4 and he's been found wanting in a pair of Class 3s subsequently; this looks tougher again.

Form & Verdict

Well beaten on first two starts this season but returned to form with a close second at Haydock (11.6f, soft), making the running and pulling clear with the winner; 4lb higher but perhaps a greater concern would be drying ground, as he does like the mud.

Useful Flat-racer at his best; yet to fully transfer that ability to hurdles but he was a fair second behind an easy Irish-trained winner at Bangor (2m, heavy) three weeks ago and may still have more to offer in this code.

Useful Flat-racer at his best; yet to build upon last winter's quite promising hurdling debut but, following a break, ran well to a point on recent handicap debut at Sedgefield (2m1f, soft); sports first-time blinkers here and has possibilities if that recent outing brought him on.

Five wins at up to 2m on the Flat for Hughie Morrison and his final appearance was under that code when tailed off in the consolation race for the Chester Cup in May; had shown some ability over hurdles before then and now makes his handicap hurdle debut in a modest race.
