Steadily progressive this season and made all at Sandown last month (runner-up has won since); that come on soft but his previous success was gained on good ground; 7lb higher but should figure strongly.

T: Joe Tizzard

Won a match over C&D in November on his second chase start and then runner-up at Wincanton (2m4f); the saddle slipped when tried in a hood at Plumpton and soft ground counted against when back over hurdles the last time; should give his running now but being 6lb out of the weights hurts his chances.

Has been chasing, getting off the mark in a match at Kempton in November; ran well to be second here two runs back before pulling up early at Plumpton last week with a slipped saddle; useful hurdler at about this trip in the past and he can deal with this mark.

Form & Verdict

Three wins this season (2m/2m1f) and only 2lb higher than for the latest of them; ridden by inexperienced claimers the last twice so may do better reunited with Kevin Jones (all three wins under him); good ground the worry - all his best form has come on softer.

Not been in the best of form on the Flat and over hurdles recently; has won on heavy but this forecast better ground suits and could bounce back; tongue-tie now tried.

Well beaten over hurdles on his last three starts; however, perhaps this first run on the Flat since 2020 will trigger a revival and he ran well over jumps as recently as January (on heavy ground); not discounted.

Hasn't beaten a rival in three starts this season (first two over fences), after a long absence; lot to prove although the 10lb claim of Sean O'Briain, having his first British ride under rules, is a help.

Probably fortunate to win Lanzarote Hurdle off today's mark two years ago and seen only three times again since; well below best form in two chases last month and needs to prove his old hurdling ability remains.

Form & Verdict

Was proving most consistent over fences this season until coming unstuck at Wincanton in January; break may have helped and good ground suits but doubts about him showing his best back hurdling (well held only attempt over them in the last four years).

Last hurdles win came over C&D (good) in December 2022, having also won the same contest the previous year; nowhere near that level in recent times, finishing a remote fourth of five at Plumpton (2m4f; first time tongue-tie) 39 days ago; plenty to prove.

Form & Verdict

Two novice wins last season but rather a mixed bag this term; fine fourth in the Betfair Hurdle two starts ago and repeat of that gives him major claims, while he shapes as if he's worth a shot at this trip; all outings on good to soft or softer.

Finished behind Flegmatik in major 3m event here last month but kept on in the latter stages and wasn't entirely disgraced; shaped well at Newbury (2m6f, good to soft) the time before and remains of interest; last two wins at about 2m4f; fighting chance off bottom weight.
