Darling Du Large

10st 11lb

J: Jonathan Burke

T: Tom George

In rampant form in the autumn, winning a competitive race at Aintree (2m, good to soft) before comfortably beating her sole rival at Wetherby (1m7f, good); the sequence of success came to an end at Newbury in December and she'll probably need another personal best to resume winning ways after four months off, but that's not out of the question.

In rampant form this autumn, winning a competitive Aintree handicap before comfortably beating her sole rival at Wetherby; 5lb rise for that is more than offset by Thomas Doggrell's 8lb claim; obvious claims.

Made good progress last season, collecting three Kelso wins (all 2m1f) along the way, and made a very encouraging return when third at Musselburgh last month; remains on career-high mark but may yet have more to offer.

Cedar Hill

11st 10lb

J: Ryan Mania

T: Sandy Thomson

Ended last year with below-par C&D run (bled from the nose) and was beaten when falling over 2m4f here on New Year's Day; needs to get back in the groove but has very good chasing strike-rate (7-25) and his current mark is workable.

Form & Verdict

Inconsistent last season and tailed off behind Darling Du Large when back in action last month (reportedly never travelling after a jumping error at fifth fence); current mark probably not beyond him if all goes to plan but he'd appeal more on slower ground; tongue-tie added.

Two chase wins this spring and the latest, at Newbury this month, came off 9lb higher; however, he was beaten off this mark over hurdles before that which tempers confidence, even though he is clearly in fine form.

Form & Verdict

Ran well over C&D (good) on last month's seasonal debut and posted career-best performance when scoring by just over 5l at Musselburgh (2m, soft) 17 days later; recent 4lb rise doesn't look excessive; must be considered in current form.

11st 3lb

J: Danny McMenamin

Well held in the Morebattle back hurdling at Kelso four weeks ago but that might have been needed after a break and prior to that he'd scored comfortably over fences at Musselburgh in October; only 2lb higher but a suspicion he might be vulnerable to younger legs.

Won comfortably over fences at Musselburgh (2m, soft) last October and reverts to hurdles off a 2lb lower mark; won a C&D novice in 2017 but this 11yo is in a hot race on his first hurdle outing since January 2018, and he's been withdrawn the last twice having played up at the start.

10yo who posted a career-best performance when winning in clearcut style at Musselburgh (2m, soft) six weeks ago; a 4lb rise doesn't look excessive, and he's likely to be thereabouts once more.

7 yo Gelding

OR: 131

Form & Verdict

Completed front-running five-timer in the mud last season (2m-2m3f), shooting up the weights by 35lb in total; further progress is not out of the question this term but he signed off with a disappointing effort in April and needs to prove he's fully effective away from soft/heavy ground.
