Form & Verdict

T: Charlie Longsdon

Seven-time hurdle winner who got off the mark over fences at Huntingdon (2m) in final run last year; fell at Southwell on his return last month but he's still unexposed in this sphere and could be a big factor if he can put in a clear round this time; most of his jumps wins have come on good ground.

Form & Verdict
Won two good-ground juvenile hurdles last autumn, including the one on this card, and gave a pretty good account when third in Perth handicap (2m4f, good) on last month's seasonal debut; pulled up in stronger company at Chepstow since but not out of this if he takes well to chasing; unraced on ground slower than yielding.

Unexposed 6yo who bettered his low-key handicap hurdle debut when close third here (2m, good; first-time hood) in May; makes chasing debut after 178-day absence but should have more to offer.

Seemed to be getting the hang of chasing when third of five at Market Rasen (2m1f, good) in November but made several jumping errors on next outing and has been hurdling since; comfortably held when fifth at Perth (2m, good to soft) last month and comes with risk attached now back over fences.

Form & Verdict

Dual hurdle winner in Ireland for Gavin Cromwell; didn't achieve much in first seven starts over fences but he really got his act together with a dominant display at Sedgefield (2m1f, good to soft; 6-4 favourite) last Tuesday; looks very well treated under a 7lb penalty for that 15l win and should be hard to beat if he can back that up.

Form & Verdict
Spoiled his chance by persistently jumping/hanging right at Uttoxeter (2m, good to soft) this month and is now 0-10 for Dan Skelton but remains very well handicapped on older form and today's return to a clockwise circuit is an obvious move; handles soft ground; may not want it heavy.
