Form & Verdict

Off the mark at the sixth attempt when slamming a reliable yardstick by more than 4l over C&D this month; now 8lb higher in a better race, but surprising if he hasn't still more to offer and respected for a stable with a 30% strike-rate here in the past five seasons.

Raced only on AW; couple of comfortable wins over 12.5f at Newcastle in January; two defeats have followed but 2m looked a shade too far last time; now goes in reapplied cheekpieces; has possibilities if he transfers his best form to turf.

J: Adam Farragher

T: William Haggas

Gained back-to-back wins at Newcastle (1m4f, Tapeta) in January but disappointed in his hat-trick bid over the same C&D last month; still lightly raced and pedigree offers hope that this much longer trip will be within range, but he does need to put that latest effort behind him.

J: Tom Marquand

T: William Haggas

Unsuited by drop back to 9.4f on final 3yo start; has shown improved form with two comfortable wins over C&D this year and remains highly unexposed at about 1m4f; likely to progress again and cope with his new mark upped further in grade; big player.

Form & Verdict

Dual winner over hurdles but is also 2-4 on the AW, winning a novice here (1m2f) for Roger Varian as a 3yo and a four-runner apprentice contest under Oliver Stammers at Wolverhampton (1m4f, Tapeta) seven days ago; avoids a penalty for that (2lb well in) so clearly has solid claims.

2-5 for new stable since the autumn, the latter win gained in three-runner race at Ffos Las (2m, heavy) last month; 2m4f on good ground should also suit but recent 4lb rise demands a career best here.

Form & Verdict

In fine form on Tapeta since the tongue-tie went on in October including three wins at Wolverhampton (1m4f) and he lost little in defeat when beaten half a length in a four-runner contest over 1m2f here this month; return to this trip should be in his favour, but has to concede weight to some equally in-form rivals which won't be easy.

Sole win in AW bumper in late 2020 but he went close off a reduced mark here recently (1m4f; first-time tongue-tie) when the subject of a major gamble; key player if he can back that up on the step up to 2m; cheekpieces on.
