Form & Verdict

Two wins in today's headgear combination this season, the latter at Warwick (3m1f, good) three weeks ago; recent 3lb rise doesn't look excessive, and he might still be improving.

Form & Verdict

Lightly raced in recent years; denied clear run at crucial stage when close fourth at Bangor (2m7f, good) in August and would have preferred a stronger gallop when filling same position at Warwick (2m5f, good) three weeks ago; continues to edge down the weights, and ran well over C&D on sole previous visit to Hereford; could be the answer.

Made it 2-3 here when winning over C&D (soft) in October and kept on for good fourth at Ludlow (2m5f, good to soft) ten days ago; the step back up in trip is a plus for this consistent 9yo and he has solid claims.

Back to winning ways in decisive fashion at Musselburgh (3m, soft) last month; 4lb higher mark demands more but the prospect of a sounder surface is a positive and his stable remains in fine fettle.

Form & Verdict

Opened hurdling account in refitted cheekpieces at Market Rasen (2m7f, good) in June and probably bettered that performance when second at Perth (2m4f, soft) a few weeks later; below form on latest hurdle start and predictably form 1m far too sharp on recent Flat debut (no headgear) but has the cheekpieces back on here and is suited by this C&D.

Ended last season with two creditable efforts in marathon chases and he returned from another break with a respectable fourth at Exeter (3m6f, good to soft) 19 days ago; takes a big drop back in trip but his last win came over 2m7f here in February and he could be dangerous.

Ended last season with two creditable efforts in marathon chases but he's not been at his best over hurdles and fences in his two runs this term; mark is sliding but he's still 3lb higher than for his chase win and has an overall record of 3-36; others preferred.

Form & Verdict

Third in two Ludlow chases at start of this season (3m/3m1f) but doesn't tend to find much when the chips are down, and ran poorly when reverting to hurdling for latest start in July; returns from break on workable mark but others look safer; swaps blinkers for refitted cheekpieces.

8yo with a regressive profile and he was pulled up at Fontwell last time out in December; however, the soft ground may not have suited and he posted two fair efforts under Alfie Jordan in November; has been given a chance by the handicapper and he's not discounted now back on better ground.
