Form & Verdict

Very useful in his prime; has done a lot of his recent racing over 1m6f/2m but showed he still has the speed for this trip when scoring quite cosily over C&D last month; has a very good chance to win again.

Similar profile to Rainbow Dreamer, being a veteran who has won multiple races down the years but has a question mark over current form having posted duck eggs in 2024; unlikely to add to his tally.

Form & Verdict

Having just his second start for this yard when a close fourth over C&D in October and perhaps 1m6f stretched him when fading into a well-held fourth at Wolverhampton since.; 1-16 overall record is hardly compelling, though.

Well treated on the form of consecutive 1m4f turf wins in spring 2022; 0-13 on AW and hasn't shown much liking for sand in his most recent attempts but he does act on Tapeta; not ignored back from break.

Form & Verdict

0-5 for Roger Varian, folding quite tamely in a 1m handicap here when last seen seven weeks ago; sold for 21,000gns since; has gone off favourite on all bar one of his starts, suggesting his previous stable thought he had more ability than he showed; interesting to see if his new yard can find the key to him.

Form & Verdict

Useful on the Flat earlier in his career but failed to kick on over hurdles and has been well beaten back in this code on his last three starts; first run for 116 days.

Returned to form when second at Sedgefield (2m4f, good to soft) 19 days ago but is quickly back up in grade here and the increased emphasis on stamina may not be in his favour.

His mark continues to fall and he was a fair third on the AW in December, but he was well beaten back over hurdles at Kelso last month and needs to be a different proposition this afternoon.

Formerly useful on the Flat and also won a maiden hurdle when trained in Ireland; however, struggled early last year over jumps and recent Flat efforts were no more encouraging.

Form & Verdict

Reliable 4yo who has pulled out more for the step up to 1m4f, winning here before defying a 4lb rise at Wolverhampton 12 days ago; could have more to come at this trip and every chance of a hat-trick.

Decent strike-rate on AW and although touched off over 1m4f here last time (cheekpieces left off, back on now), that represented a career-best effort; big chance from just 1lb higher back in distance.

Consistent and steadily progressive on AW; ended his 2021 campaign with wins at this course and Wolverhampton; has done his winning in cheekpieces, which are now removed on reappearance, but has respectable form without headgear; may improve further in 2022 and has to be feared.
