Form & Verdict

Won over hurdles here (2m3f, heavy) last season but has rather mixed record since switched to chasing; looked good when scoring by 14l at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good) in January but was tailed off when last of three at Haydock (2m4f, heavy) last month; not an easy one to predict.

Form & Verdict

Lightly raced 7yo who made promising seasonal/chase debut when second at Chepstow (2m, good to soft); not seen since disappointing run on Boxing Day (had wind surgery soon afterwards) but sports first-time cheekpieces here and is unexposed over this sort of trip; remains a good prospect.

Placed over fences at Southwell (2m4f, good to soft; wore cheekpieces) in April but ran poorly over same C&D a fortnight ago and now switches back to hurdles in new headgear; on good mark now but can't be trusted.

Won small-field chase off 10lb higher a year ago and looked back in good nick when travelling menacingly well for a long way over C&D in April; however, he ended up well held in third after a disappointing finishing effort on that latest outing and his overall profile remains unconvincing.

Form & Verdict

0-5 over fences; seemed to respond very well to first-time cheekpieces when third at Taunton (2m7f, good to soft) in December but was pulled up in Bangor marathon last month and needs the switch to blinkers to keep him interested here.

Began season with two Southwell wins (2m4f, good/good to soft) last May and was back in good form when third at Chepstow (2m3f, soft) last month; still on a workable mark and has been placed at this track over hurdles; might be the answer.

Has similar profile to Ballinsker, in that he needed quite a bit of help from the handicapper before gaining his first chase win; went back up only 2lb for his small-field success at Leicester (2m4f, soft) last month and should be fine on today's quicker surface but needs to bounce back from a duff effort three weeks ago.

Form & Verdict

Won her bumper here and two of her subsequent seven hurdling wins were gained at this track; creditable third at Cheltenham (2m4f, good to soft) in December but below form on both starts this year (cheekpieces added last time) and has left it rather late in the day to launch a chasing career.

Multiple hurdle winner (various ground) when trained by Neil Mulholland but badly out of form over fences/hurdles for Peter Bowen this autumn; refitted cheekpieces didn't do much for her two starts ago; sports first-time visor today; has a lot to prove but lurks on a dangerous mark and is worth a glance in the betting.

Had failed to finish his previous three chasing attempts so last month's C&D second was a welcome return to some form; not sure that was the strongest of races but the effort puts him firmly in the picture here.
