Form & Verdict

Left clear at final fence but would probably have won anyway over this trip on good ground at Catterick and was let down by his jumping next time off this 8lb higher mark; could yet prove himself worthy of this figure.

Front-runs; had a terrific year in 2022, winning three chases (up to 2m3f) and two novice hurdles (all on good ground), but the bubble burst that autumn; favourably treated now but all seven wins on good ground.

J: Harry Bannister

Did well in spring/summer 2022 when winning three handicap chases and two novice hurdles; back on a good mark and ran as though his Sandown race (after a break) was needed; ideally wants good ground so the recent rain counts against him; likes to lead.

J: David Bass

T: Richard J Bandey

Good-ground specialist who did very well in spring/summer 2022, winning three handicap chases and two novice hurdles; ran creditably in the second of his three runs this year and has dropped 4lb since but he needs to be at his peak and seemingly needs the ground to dry out.

Form & Verdict

Stuck on a losing run and isn't the easiest to predict, but it was a welcome return to form when going down narrowly at Hereford (2m3f, good to soft) and this drier surface will suit him very much.

Dug deep to win by a short head off today's mark at Ffos Las (2m, good) in October, after a break, but looked out of sorts on both appearances last month (chase/hurdle) and needs a good boost from first-time visor here.

Took advantage of a favourable mark over fences at Ffos Las (2m, good) in October; two backward steps since, having a second go in cheekpieces on latest (they are now discarded); back hurdling for first time since October 2021 and has a good mark if that receives a positive response.

J: Adam Wedge

Has run well both starts here, over hurdles and fences (in better company last February); took advantage of a favourable mark at Ffos Las in October (2m, good) but soft ground against him since; cheekpieces no help on final start of last campaign, now refitted; respected at the right level.

Form & Verdict

Nothing like the force of old but he has won round here and it was a decent effort last time at Huntingdon to be beaten about 10l; effectively 8lb lower with Jack Andrews taking off 5lb and he should go well.

J: James Bowen

Has his quirks and is nothing like the force of old but two of his five wins were gained over this C&D; safely held on soft ground here last month but will be better suited by today's drying conditions and has slipped to an attractive mark.

Form & Verdict

Won at Market Rasen in October but tends to jump left, as was again evident at Musselburgh last time; looked good at Southwell the time before (2m4f, good to soft) and that was off only 5lb lower; chance.

J: Kevin Brogan

T: L J Morgan

He's 12lb lower than when winning over fences here in January and is one to watch in the betting; however, this 10yo has struggled to get competitive over hurdles/fences in the last two seasons and needs a major turnaround.

Has done his winning over fences (2m3f/2m4f) and record over hurdles leaves plenty to be desired; an unlikely player unless new headgear makes a big difference.
