Form & Verdict

Hurdle and multiple chase winner in France; generally very disappointing in Britain (eight starts) but was a long way clear of the third when second at Wincanton (2m4f, good) eight days ago and runs here before a 5lb rise takes effect.

£4,000 buy from David Pipe in October; mainly in good form for new yard, including a win at Southwell (2m, good to soft) in January and a front-running third of four there last time; now drops back in grade and this veteran should go well again.

Form & Verdict

Dual winner on good ground in this month last year, latterly off mark 2lb higher than today's at Worcester (2m4f); back from break with two fairly respectable efforts this year (soft/good to soft) and will warrant serious consideration if the ground stays good today.

Below form after jumping left-handed at Hereford last month but his third at Chepstow (2m3f, soft) two starts ago was a good effort and he'll be fine on today's faster ground; shortlisted.

Form & Verdict

Fairly useful on the Flat, and has shown some aptitude for hurdling this season; just a respectable fourth on last month's handicap debut at Doncaster (2m, soft) and not bred for fences or today's longer trip, but could have a say if he takes to this game.

Following wind surgery he was a fair fourth over hurdles on his reappearance at Market Rasen (2m2f, good) in September; however, he has a patchy profile nowadays and this ex-Flat performer was an early faller on his sole chase start back in April 2022.
