Form & Verdict
Lightly raced 8yo who came good in a 2m maiden on good ground at Ludlow in November; has been held in three handicaps since but she looked dangerous before her effort flattened out at Doncaster (2m3f) last month and could resume her progress back at this trip; interesting contender.

Unexposed mare who came good in 2m maiden on good ground in November; creditable third on handicap debut at Southwell (good to soft) next time and perhaps unsuited by soft ground when well-held fifth at Newbury since (also made an early mistake); longer trip should be within range on breeding; stable has had winners here.

Form & Verdict
Irish point winner; made a promising start under rules when third in Carlisle novice (2m4f, soft) in October but he ran out at Newcastle in December and was a well-held fourth at Catterick last time; has had wind surgery since and this is more realistic on handicap debut but he still needs to kick on back at this trip.

Form & Verdict
Looked promising when winning for Nicky Henderson on last season's hurdling debut but hasn't fulfilled his potential and was pulled up on chase/stable debut last month; mark continues to fall and now drops back to 2m but has questions to answer back in this sphere; tongue-tie and cheekpieces are removed and blinkers return.

Looked promising when winning for Nicky Henderson on last season's hurdling debut but hasn't fulfilled his potential and was sold for £6,000 last month; fitted with first-time tongue-tie/cheekpieces for today's chase/stable debut; needs the change of regime to have done him good.

Lightly raced 8yo who looked very promising when winning Newbury maiden (2m, soft) on hurdle debut in December 2020; beaten favourite on other two starts last season and ran very poorly in 2m4f Newbury handicap on reappearance outing in November but there is still significant hope he can turn things around; sports blinkers and tries a new trip today.
