Form & Verdict

His form has been mixed since he won this race last year (good) but he's 2lb lower today and, with these cheekpieces back on, he took a step back in the right direction with a sound fourth of six at Kelso (2m5f, good) last month, a race that has worked out well; capable of playing a leading role.

No win since scoring over hurdles here (2m4f, Class 2; from 9lb higher) in March 2022; could strip fitter for recent comeback run (Warwick), while the switch back to fences for the first time in 13 months could potentially rekindle a spark; one to consider.

Form & Verdict

Has won three times this season (2m4f/2m5f, good/soft), the latest in January, and he bumped into a rejuvenated winner when a near-10l second of six over C&D last time out; can give another good account today.

No longer the force of old but suggested he's ready to exploit some significant help from the handicapper when second to progressive rival at Stratford (2m2f, good) last month; also suited by this C&D; likely contender.

Form & Verdict

Reduced mark appeals on form as recent as last October and 2m4f on good ground should be fine; however, he was well below his best on his last two starts this winter and a revival is required.

Form & Verdict

Two wins last month (2m4f, soft/heavy) and defied new mark to land hat-trick over C&D (good to soft) last Tuesday; had to work hard last time so may be vulnerable under a 7lb penalty, and she's unproven on good going, but she remains well treated on old form and could have more left in the tank.

Landed a hat-trick early last year and she's well handicapped on that form; she's one to watch in the betting but has to perform considerably better than on her final three starts towards the end of last year.

Form & Verdict

This is his first hurdle start since December 2020 but he showed promise that season (won a 2m1f novice here on good ground) and he arrives on the back of a close third on the AW 16 days ago; stays 1m6f on the Flat so there's every chance this trip will suit; could be in the mix.
