Form & Verdict
Unexposed 6yo who was placed in two slow-ground novice hurdles last season (2m/2m3f); makes chase/handicap debut after 236-day absence and needs to prove he can cope with today's quicker surface but market support will make him of significant interest.

Improved form when winning on handicap/chase debut at Worcester (2m4f, good to soft) in November and good third at Doncaster subsequently (2m3f, good to soft; runner-up has since gone one better); showed promise on soft over hurdles and this very lightly raced 7yo is open to further progress.

Raised his form to a new level on his chase debut when a comfortable winner at Worcester (2m4f, good to soft) in November; hit with an 8lb rise for that but he found more progress when a creditable third at Doncaster last month; on same mark here and this lightly raced 7yo is a key player.

3m point winner who was sent straight over fences for his handicap debut at Worcester (2m4f, good to soft) and was second to a well-treated winner; retains potential but he didn't appear to quite see out the trip at Huntingdon (2m7f, good) last month, so may be vulnerable to stronger stayers.

Tailed off at Carlisle nine days ago but that doesn't tell the full story as he failed to settle and still looked a threat at the bottom of the straight; won at Uttoxeter the time before and could have a part to play provided he doesn't use up too much energy early in the race.

Not really gone on from December's Down Royal hurdle win for Joseph O'Brien, though hasn't had the same combination of a galloping 2m4f and soft ground the last three times; no surprise therefore if the trip, track and going of today's British/stable debut don't wholly suit.

Has a patchy profile but he made it 2-7 over fences when scoring at Wincanton (1m7f, good) last month and he backed that up with a fair front-running third over 2m4f there last time; hard to rule out another good run but probably needs to resume his progress to defy this mark.

Well beaten on two of four starts for new stable this season but won the other two, the latter here (1m7f, good) nine days ago; has 7lb penalty to shoulder today and it's hard to predict whether he'll be in the right mood again, but the longer trip should not be a problem.
