Form & Verdict

Upwardly mobile 7yo with an impressive strike rate (6-13) under rules; made it 2-2 over fences with an 11l success from Cornerstone Lad in three-runner handicap at Carlisle (2m, soft) three weeks ago; stays 2m4f and may have more improvement in him, but he's significantly worse off at the weights with his old rival today.

J: Theo Gillard

T: Donald McCain

Talented on his day and he was having one of them at Hereford recently (2m, good to soft) when clear of his rivals until his saddle slipped and he unseated at the last; back up 4lb in a tougher race and has something to prove on this track, having been pulled up in handicaps at this meeting for the last two years, over hurdles and in this race.

Form & Verdict

Has made a positive start for his current yard (previously trained in Ireland by Mouse Morris), making much of the running when 3l second of seven in handicap at Musselburgh (2m, good to soft) three weeks ago; proven over 2m4f; dangerous, especially if getting an uncontested lead.

J: William Shanahan

T: Jennie Candlish

Made all for wide-margin wins in two four-runner handicaps here (2m3f/2m1f, good) last May, those are his only two runs at Sedgefield and he's now 9lb below his last winning mark; switched to visor when there was an upturn in his form on latest outing; tongue-tie (absent since 2021 in his Irish days) returns and 7lb claimer is recruited; of renewed interest.

Won two in a row over fences at Sedgefield in May but he's finished down the field the last twice; major turnaround is required with a first-time visor replacing cheekpieces.

J: Sean Quinlan

T: Jennie Candlish

Below par at Wetherby last month and has to bounce back, but he won two in a row at Sedgefield (2m3f/2m1f, good) in May and returned from a break with a fair third of four at Kelso (2m1f, good) in October; also effective on good to soft ground and he's not written off.

Form & Verdict

Durable 8yo with ten successes to his name; best effort over fences when winning handicap at Wetherby (1m7f, soft) in January; beaten 11l by Mackenberg at Carlisle last time but now weighted to turn the tables; unproven beyond 2m1f but shapes as if he'll stay.

Cornerstone Lad

10st 9lb

J: Conor O’Farrell

T: Micky Hammond

Showed some spark when second of four here (2m, heavy) in February and continues to drop down the weights; however, this 10yo has a regressive profile and hasn't built on that runner-up finish on his two starts since; has never won over a trip this far.
