Form & Verdict

Missed last season and was well beaten on reappearance outing in December but seemed to appreciate a drop in grade when second at Sandown (1m7f, soft; front pair well clear) last month; remains on a good mark but drying ground may not be ideal for him here.

Seemingly back on track when winning four-runner race at Wincanton (1m7f, good) in March but safely held at Cheltenham (2m4f, good) last month and now has questions to answer again.

Low-mileage 7yo with records of 4-7 over hurdles and 2-7 as a chaser; got himself back on track with a second on soft ground at Sandown and then beat three rivals with relative ease at Wincanton, despite reportedly not enjoying the good ground; all that was at about 2m but Daryl Jacob reckons this trip will suit him.

Form & Verdict

No longer the force of old but capitalised upon some help from the handicapper when clearcut winner at Newbury (2m, soft) last month; went back up 7lb for that but should be fine on this right-handed track and the quicker ground will also suit.

Acts on soft; missed last season and seemed to need his reappearance run here four weeks ago; two-time C&D winner and ran well (clear second off just 1lb lower) in this race two years ago; possibilities.

On a competitive mark on his 2021-22 form; off since and, while he returns with his stable in good form, it's a very hefty absence for this 10yo to try to defy.

Form & Verdict

Yet to add to his win in first-time cheekpieces in December 2020 but didn't run badly when fifth at Taunton (2m2f, good) on latest outing in December, and a subsequent 4lb drop seems generous.

Form & Verdict

Seemed to have taken form to new level when winning easily by 10l at Hereford (2m, soft) last March but hasn't fired on any of three starts this season, most recently when defending his crown in that Hereford race nine days ago; needs to up his game.
