Form & Verdict

Ex-Irish 6yo; runner-up on first two stable starts and didn't need to improve to win modest Newton Abbot novice (2m2f, soft) at short odds in July; faces much tougher opposition now back in a handicap but ought to remain very competitive.

Well held at Kempton last time but this is more his scene and he won comfortably here the run before off 6lb lower, though Freddie Gordon claimed a further 7lb that day; needs respecting.

Form & Verdict

Did well after joining Adam West last autumn, winning two handicap hurdles (2m4f/2m3f) and an AW bumper; signed off with respectable fifth at Sandown (2m4f, good) in April and can probably cope with this drop back in trip but current mark demands new career-best performance.

Versatile ground-wise; multiple wins for yard include a 2m handicap on the Flat at Chepstow in April 2022 but his latest win was over hurdles that May and he hasn't shone so far this year; others more obvious.

Form & Verdict

Took a while to get his act together over hurdles but won twice in seven days at Worcester (2m, good) in July; could plausibly have more improvement to come but this hat-trick attempt comes after a ten-week break, and the ground may have turned against him.

Rejuvenated 8yo who won three in a row at Perth (3m, good-heavy) in August/September and has continued in fine form to finish second at Carlisle (3m/3m2f, soft) the last twice; continues to climb the weights (up 2lb since last time) but he's clearly thriving and could be in the mix.

Form & Verdict

Has excellent 7-23 strike-rate over hurdles, the latest win gained at Worcester (2m, good) six weeks ago; subsequent 4lb rise is not excessive and he won't mind if the ground is softer here; respected.

Form & Verdict

Bumper and dual hurdle winner last season; well beaten when making handicap debut in valuable event at Sandown (2m, good) in April but is in calmer waters for today's seasonal reappearance and remains very much of interest.

Began season with small-field chase win at Plumpton (2m3f, good) in October but not seen since a lesser effort over hurdles the following month; can evidently go well fresh but others in this line-up appeal more.
