Form & Verdict

Dual winning hurdler at around 2m last summer (good/good to soft) and fair efforts in handicaps at up to 2m4f on good/heavy this winter; has his first run over fences and first on fast ground, and a possible though can pull hard so small field perhaps not ideal.

Returned from break with satisfactory effort in October and arguably ran better than eventual 24l defeat might suggest when fifth at Exeter (2m3f, good to soft) last month; on a good mark now and today's trip-and-ground combination will suit; worth a second look.

J: Lee Edwards

Below best in two runs this term, despite what his form figures might suggest; successful over C&D (good) in April but he's now 5lb higher in a deeper contest and taking on some very interesting rivals.

Form & Verdict

Reportedly suited by the drop back to 2m when winning Huntingdon novice handicap chase in January (2m, good to soft) having previously won over 2m over hurdles; bled from the nose and was pulled up last time; stamina to prove (pulled up only run over 2m4f), is having her first run on fast ground and looks a bit risky.

Opened her account in this sphere at the third attempt in 2m Huntingdon handicap, striding clear on the run-in; form has been franked, so she's the one to beat despite taking a 7lb rise.

J: Mr Ben Bromley

Winning hurdler who left her first two chase runs behind when landing a 2m Huntingdon handicap (good to soft) under Ben Bromley six weeks ago; 7lb rise means she'll likely need a bit more to follow up.

Form & Verdict

Below-par last time at Taunton (2m2f, good) having previously got off the mark over fences when winning a Market Rasen handicap (2m1f, good) in a first-time visor; headgear retained and could bounce back on first run after a break.
