Form & Verdict

Bumper/Flat winner who is 0-5 over hurdles but ran well in both his handicaps last season (particularly when narrowly beaten at Ascot) and a recent run on the Flat (respectable) may have done him good; much respected.

Recent form figures make grim reading but he's very much a good ground specialist and has plenty of form which gives him decent claims; not written off in a hurry and Rob Hargreaves taking off 8lb no hardship either.

Dual winning hurdler on good ground (2m/2m3f) but tailed off when trying 2m5f on soft at Christmas and non-completions on both starts this spring; now reverts to Flat, in which sphere he has appeared in three 2m handicaps but not achieved much; down the weights.

Dual winning hurdler on good ground (2m/2m3f) and he ran well to be second in a novice on this two-day meeting last season; has stamina to prove over this far but could very easily leave his recent soft-ground failures behind him; respected.

Form & Verdict

Won on the AW and twice over hurdles for Noel Meade in Ireland; restricted to just two Flat runs this year (neither great) and, even if freshened up by her new trainer, she faces no easy task with top weight; no blinkers or cheekpieces today but tongue-tie is a first.

Form & Verdict

Has won over hurdles but it was chasing that he completed a hat-trick last summer and he has mostly been confined to that discipline so far this year, enduring mixed fortunes; returns to hurdling in first-time headgear and off a lower mark, so with the stable going well he's considered.

Five chase wins, the latest off 1lb lower at Worcester (2m, good) last summer; ended last year with two very laboured efforts but combination of better ground and ease in grade may enable him to get more competitive here; cheekpieces (left off last time) are back on.

Didn't lead as usual when ultimately pulled up at Kempton last month; did win his previous chase start at Worcester in August (2m, good) off 4lb lower but just three ran that day and, with competition for the lead seemingly assured, he'll do well to win this.

Goes from the front and he stayed there when too strong for subsequent winner Glajou at Worcester in August (2m good; 5lb lower), only to then run flat on his return to hurdling; this is more his game with a highly respectable strike-rate of 5-17.

Dual Flat winner; first-time hooded when easily winning a C&D maiden (on good) but two weeks later at Market Rasen he came up short despite looking sure to win up the straight; this mark no gimme for his first handicap but couldn't dismiss.
