Form & Verdict

Progressive 5yo who has won his last four races; did it quite cosily at Warwick (2m5f, good) last month, after a break, and latest 5lb rise may not be enough to stop him on this first run beyond that trip.

Added to his solid record when sixth of 23 to Good Time Jonny in the Pertemps at Cheltenham (3m, soft), shaping a bit better than the bare result after getting messed about a bit approaching the last and also hitting the flight; fresh for this stage of the season and likely to give a good account.

Crept through the ranks over hurdles without doing lasting damage to his mark and his third in C&D qualifier in October (good), when picking up late on the run to the line, suggested there was still some better to come; all wins on good but he has run to form on soft; yard has won this four times.

In top form towards end of last year, winning twice (2m7f/3m1f, good/good to soft) and a close second at Fontwell (3m2f, soft) on Boxing Day behind one who was landing a hat-trick; made a bad mistake two out that day, and jockey dropped his whip after the final flight; solid claims off same mark.

Back from break in very good form this autumn, winning at Huntingdon (3m1f, good) and Lingfield (2m7f, good to soft) either side of clear second to very progressive rival at Exeter (2m7f, good); drops down from Class 3 today and is probably still on a workable mark; good chance.

Form & Verdict

Has very modest 1-26 strike-rate over hurdles, and ran out at ninth flight at Sedgefield last month; went very close in Class 5 mares' race at Worcester (2m7f, good) two starts ago but will need to find something extra to prevail off 2lb higher in this company.

Sole hurdle win came back in 2019 and she's 1-31 in this discipline; has come under early pressure the last twice (2m4f/2m6f) but has still posted fair efforts and she could be suited by today's test of stamina (stays at least 3m1f); might not be far away.

Form & Verdict

Out of form over fences and hurdles for Dan Skelton when last seen in February but starts off for new stable on a good mark; untested on ground quicker than good; refitted cheekpieces the headgear of choice today; interesting to see whether he's been revitalised by the change of regime.

Ex-Dan Skelton; returned to form on his second run for this yard when just missing out over C&D (good to soft; 4lb lower) in November and that form has worked out well (front three clear); reportedly unsuited by the track when tailed off at Hereford; much respected back here.

Well beaten at Worcester last month, his second run after his latest wind op, but is now 5lb lower than when second at Plumpton (2m4f, good) in April and will be fine over today's longer trip.

Form & Verdict

Won off today's mark in first-time cheekpieces at Ffos Las (2m4f, good to firm) in June and returned from three-month break with good second at Ludlow (2m5f, good; first-time blinkers) two weeks ago; can cope with some rain and is worth a crack at today's trip; enters calculations.

Won in first-time cheekpieces at Ffos Las (2m4f, good to firm) in June; disappointing the same headgear in July (2m4f, good to soft) but perhaps today's switch to blinkers will give her a boost; has run well on soft.
