Form & Verdict

Unplaced all seven starts but was in process of running well on recent seasonal/stable debut at Uttoxeter (2m6f, good) until losing all chance at first fence in home straight (hampered and sprawled on landing); effectively 2lb higher from further out of the weights here but no forlorn hope.

Did well in AW bumpers at start of this year (two wins) and subsequently finished second over fences at Stratford (2m3f, good) but was badly out of form on the Flat/over fences this summer and needs to turn things around.

Form & Verdict

Won over hurdles here (2m2f, good to firm) on last season's reappearance and was second in his first two chases (2m4f/2m5f); absent since falling at Chepstow in April but won't mind if there's some rain about and features prominently in calculations.

Seemed to lose his way over hurdles but, following a break, began chasing career with wins at Uttoxeter and Warwick (both 2m4f, good) last month; must be considered in current form; cheekpieces refitted.

Form & Verdict

Won over fences at Wexford (2m4f, soft) last summer and signed off in Ireland with good effort in claiming hurdle in May; ultimately well beaten on stable debut in August (2m5f chase) but some positives can be taken from that run and he's 4lb lower now.

Form & Verdict

Won this race a year ago and was also successful on good to firm ground over 3m here in April; now only 2lb above his last winning mark and also has form on slower ground but needs to bounce back quickly from disappointing seasonal debut here 12 days ago.

Stayed on well to win this race by 12l off a 9lb higher mark a year ago but was out of form on his three appearances in the autumn, and it's hard to say anything positive about last month's reappearance run (albeit the ground was softer than he prefers); needs a good boost from the first-time cheekpieces.
