Form & Verdict

9-2, won on debut over C&D (soft) in December; now carries a 7lb penalty against some interesting rivals but the form reads well (runner-up went one better next time) and he has strong claims.

J: Harry Skelton

Acts on heavy going; unlucky second to Ginny's Destiny at Cheltenham in December (might have won but for a bad error two out) and turned the tables in the Turners there four weeks ago, beating that opponent by 2l; suited by the stiff 2m4f on both occasions and in between he won over 3m (Grade 2); not obviously crying out for this return to a sharper 2m4f, regardless of ground, but otherwise has the best claims on form and is still improving.

Has raced only on ground softer than good; close second to Ginny's Destiny, who received 3lb, in Cheltenham contest (2m4f) in December and might have won but for making a bad mistake two out; that very good effort is flanked by two easy wins, latest in Grade 2 at Warwick (3m; jumped left at last two fences) where he beat a very useful mare by 14l; bypassed the Brown Advisory on Wednesday to go for this option; leading player.

J: Harry Skelton

Won the 2m5f Grade 2 novice hurdle on heavy ground at this meeting last year; ran away with a graduation chase at Haydock (2m5f, soft) on second start over fences and may well have added a good novice chase at Cheltenham (2m4f, soft) four weeks ago but for getting the second last all wrong, as he closed all the way to the line thereafter; has a bit more to prove at 3m (third attempt) but an exciting prospect.

Ran well when third at Perth (2m, good) last June on his third bumper start; however, absent since and improvement is necessary if he's to get off the mark in this line-up; unraced on ground slower than good to soft.

Again showed promise when beaten just a neck over C&D (good) last month, having made the running; can be bang there once more provided he handles this different ground (unraced on slower than good to soft).

2-4 in novice company over hurdles last season but he's been pulled up in both his handicaps including on his chase debut at Ayr (2m, good to soft) in November; now returns to hurdling after a second win operation but he needs a major revival after another break.

Has won two minor events in the north of England and was found an easy opening in which to defy a penalty last time; 4lb 'wrong' for this severe hike in class and it looks a big ask.

Fair fifth of eight on debut at Carlisle (2m1f, soft; 7-1) last month; improvement is necessary today but he's from a Northern Irish yard that does well in British bumpers and he's not ruled out.

Won run-of-the-mill Ayr maiden (2m4f, good to soft) in February, his fourth start over hurdles, and probably bettered that performance when second in 3m handicap there (good to soft) three weeks ago; moves up in grade today but may still have more to offer.

Built upon his previous promise when winning a 2m4f maiden here (good to soft) in February; that form has been boosted and he has potential off his handicap debut mark, while he wasn't stopping at the line so this longer trip may well be within range.
