Form & Verdict

2m4f hurdle winner who resumed his progress on his second start over fences when runner-up in a Market Rasen handicap (2m5f, good) last month; up 3lb but he kept battling behind a well-handicapped rival last time and the first three pulled well clear in that race; leading contender.

Last seven runs have been over fences and he was clear of the rest in chasing home a well-handicapped winner at Chepstow (2m7f, good); 3lb lower for this and he has won over hurdles; big shout.

Form & Verdict

Inconsistent nine-race maiden under rules but he's well treated on his best hurdles form and was a respectable second of four in this sphere at Newcastle (2m7f, good) last month; still unexposed over fences and has claims if he can build on that last run.

Well handicapped on old form over hurdles and fences; returned from a long absence at Sedgefield (2m5f, soft) last month and looked threatening when coming down late on in a handicap chase; he was strong in the market there; commands respect.

Form & Verdict

11yo who ended a long losing run when scoring at Stratford (2m6f, good) in October but he failed to back that up when a well-held fourth at Market Rasen last month; finished 22l behind San Agustin in that race and has something to prove again now.

Form & Verdict

Lightly raced 5yo; has already had two wind operations and didn't progress over hurdles; had stiff task on chase/seasonal debut in October but he struggled again when pulled up in a 2m7f Huntingdon handicap (good) ten days ago; on same mark here and has plenty to prove with cheekpieces now fitted.

12-race maiden who had a very mixed record over fences for Ben Pauling last season and made disappointing stable debut when last of three at Plumpton (3m1f, good) last month; on a good mark now and some rain may aid his cause but he's not an easy one to predict; tongue-tie refitted.

Form & Verdict

Record of 1-8 over hurdles but his win was a clearcut success at Stratford (2m6f, good) in March and he went close at Chepstow (2m7f, good to soft) last month, on his second run after a break; nudged up 3lb but he's still unexposed at staying trips and is a big player if he can continue the good work on this switch to fences; visor worn in last four starts is removed.

Far from reliable having posted form figures of FP1PPP in his last six races (hurdles/fences); the win came at Ascot (2m7f soft) and he holds good claims on that performance; just hard to back with confidence.
