Form & Verdict
Nothing in three novices but something of a revelation on handicap debut here in July (2m5f+, cheekpieces on), when runner-up to a subsequent winner; that offers real hope but he's 8lb out of the handicap in a better race.

Much improved when sent into handicaps last season, with two wins including one over C&D; probably not ideal lacking a run and certainly not ideal being out of the weights, though the booking Ben Ffrench David (claiming 7lb) helps in that respect.

Has looked a different horse since sent into handicaps and responded well for pressure to go back-to-back at Taunton (3m, good to firm) three weeks ago; 3lb rise shouldn't be too damaging.

Form & Verdict
Became disappointing for Fergal O'Brien but switch to front-running tactics saw him beat Easyrun de Vassy over C&D last month, on third start for this stable; 7lb rise might not stop him if able to dominate.

Two hurdling wins, the latest gained here last August; not as good yet over fences and faded out of contention at Plumpton, on return from a break; might be sharper for that and could benefit from this combination of aids (both worn separately in previous yard); best when dominating.

Hurdling winner last August (good to firm) but hasn't been seen since a modest fourth in a chase in October; 0-10 over fences and a bit more to prove than some of his rivals.

In fine form at the end of 2021, winning twice at Taunton (2m3f and 3m, both good ground), but he ran poorly on hat-trick bid at Huntingdon (3m1f, soft) on Boxing Day; today's considerably shorter trip raises major doubts.

Thriving at present, chasing a hat-trick after a pair of wins at Taunton (2m3f and 3m, both good ground); good value for latest success as he was badly messed around at the start; 9lb rise against stronger opposition will demand more of him; best on good/good to soft but seems to handle soft.

Form & Verdict
Stepping up in trip has been the making of him, with easy wins at Cartmel and Uttoxeter; another 3f to travel but no reason to doubt his stamina and 7lb penalty for the latest win still leaves him ahead of the game (due to go up 13lb from tomorrow).

Flat-bred 7yo; in good form over hurdles last summer but his final run in that discipline was poor and so too his return to the AW in October; far from certain to make a chaser.
