Form & Verdict

Pretty useful over 2m4f for Oliver Sherwood in September 2020; not disgraced in July on first run for new trainer but two backward steps have followed, the latest over 3m; now he appears at about 2m for the first time since October 2019.

Made pleasing return from nine-month absence when third over C&D (good) in July but two poor performances have followed and it's hard to predict what sort of mood he'll be in today.

Fine effort when third at Worcester (not far behind Trapista) 15 days ago, on his return from nine months off; has to back that up but enters the argument if he can repeat that run.

Form & Verdict

Peak efforts were quickfire double over hurdles on heavy ground in January 2020; in and out this season but he scored at Chepstow (2m, heavy) in January and has a good shout if this is one of his better days.

Landed a hat-trick early last year and also won at Kempton (2m4f, good) in November; hasn't really threatened subsequently but he's edged back down the weights and is a three-time winner on heavy ground; not ruled out.

Lots of form on heavy going, albeit more than two years ago; with this yard over the last year, clocking up a very solid record for them over 2m-2m4f, including on soft; should not be far away.

Form & Verdict

French hurdles winner; arrived in Britain last autumn and 0-7 since, with two seconds from his last four starts and twice pulled up in between; latest second came when back over fences under Philip Armson at Stratford (2m1f, good to soft) 11 days ago and he's in the mix judged on that.

Form & Verdict

Won at Southwell last March and, following his third wind operation, back to that form when second at Newbury (again 2m) three weeks ago; far from the most consistent but he's a player if that form is repeated.

Came good for Venetia Williams off today's mark at Southwell (2m, good to soft) last spring but has matched that level of form only once from four starts this season; raced mainly on ground slower than good; needs a boost from the first-time blinkers here.

Won at Southwell (2m) last March; back to same mark after 19l defeats in his two starts this season; given his third wind operation since and the second of those preceded a creditable run over C&D in December last term; no great shock if he revives again.

Form & Verdict

Races freely and is usually held up; won twice last July (2m1f/2m) and earns very high marks for his consistency since; that was all on good ground or good to firm, but good to soft might be passable if he's tuned up sufficiently for this first run since December.

Should get some pace to come off, and both mark (5lb below his last winning one) and ground are perfect; absence since October is a concern, however, given all ten wins have come after breaks of six weeks or fewer.
