Dual hurdling course winner towards end of 2019 but 0-4 over fences last season; just a respectable fourth on latest outing at Doncaster (3m, good to soft) in February and others probably have more potential.

Won on heavy last term and career-best form over 3m3f/3m2f on good ground at Cheltenham this season; front rank until the second last in the 4m Eider at Newcastle on latest start but fading thereafter points to a stamina weakness; tongue tied first time.

Visored last five outings; career-best form when second and first in Grade 3 handicaps over 3m3f/3m2f on good ground at Cheltenham in November/December; hampered at the start and no show last season in the Welsh National on sole attempt at a marathon trip, but the Cheltenham runs suggested he would stay further; also needs to bounce back from a lesser show at Sandown three weeks ago, however.

Form & Verdict

Didn't make the progress that seemed likely after last November's winning hurdle debut at Wincanton (2m5f, good to soft) but remains lightly raced and may have benefited from a summer wind op; dangerous to ignore on chase/handicap debut.

Triple hurdle winner for Ella Pickard in 2020; beaten favourite when third in two good-ground chases for new stable this autumn (one over C&D) but still ran well on both occasions, and today's slower conditions should also suit; 2lb out of the weights today but a likely contender nevertheless.

Three hurdle wins last year, for Ella Pickard; hot favourite for last month's stable/chasing debut, after wind surgery, but faded into third behind Eva's Oskar at Chepstow; work to do with that rival on just 4lb better terms but could be sharper for the outing; front-runner.

Form & Verdict

Runner-up in two of his three Irish points in 2019 and made very promising start to hurdling career towards end of 2020; lost his way a bit in Graded races after the turn of the year but is in calmer waters for today's chase/handicap debut and could still have a good future.

Dual C&D winner in December 2021 (good to soft/soft) and still lightly raced over fences but was well beaten (over hurdles) on sole appearance last season and it's hard to know what to expect from him after another one-year layoff.

Won two novice handicaps over the extended 2m7f here last December, doing it impressively on soft ground on this card when he shaped as if stamina is his strong suit; failed to prove it with a disappointing run at the Cheltenham Festival (3m6f) and tailed off over hurdles on this month's reappearance, so there are contrasting messages.

Soundly beaten over C&D in November after a long absence and also disappointed in a chase a fortnight later; needs to stage a revival but very well handicapped on old form (includes a soft-ground C&D win) and might be perked up by first-time cheekpieces.

2-6 over hurdles, the latter win gained by 13l in Fontwell handicap (2m5f, good to soft) in February; safely held off today's 10lb higher mark at Plumpton the following month and will probably need to take very well to chasing to win this.
