Form & Verdict

Winning debut over fences last October and has run consistently since; seems to stay this trip and good ground ideal but that initial chasing success is his only win in the last four years; blinkers (unplaced in three previous attempts in them) replace cheekpieces.

Useful in his prime but getting long in the tooth now and was out of form during light campaign last season; too well handicapped to rule out here but needs a revival.

Form & Verdict

Revitalised on good ground this spring and completed a hat-trick when winning at Exeter six days ago; may have been a shade fortunate there but the going was probably slower than described; 7lb penalty and Philip Armson's claim now only 5lb but still hard to ignore.

Won at Exeter (2m3f, good to firm) in October on final run for David Pipe and he's 2-2 for this yard following wins here (2m5f, good to soft) and at Carlisle (2m5f, good to soft); remains well treated on old form, including over staying trips, but it's a long time since he ran well on deep ground.

Form & Verdict

Won two of six outings last summer/autumn, after joining Fergal O'Brien; the second of those was a Worcester chase (2m7f) in September; pulled up there the following month and absent since; not discounted but bit to prove.

Low-key return from a break at Leicester last month but ground would have been softer than he prefers; reliable performer last summer/autumn and can be expected to give his running with conditions to suit.

Form & Verdict

Two hurdling wins last spring; has finished third in all five chasing starts, including over C&D two outings ago; on an attractive mark, especially if he can eliminate the errors that sometimes occur.

These aids seem to have helped and he was having just his second attempt at a staying trip when a convincing winner at Huntingdon last month (2m7f, good to soft; only three finished); should go on; Harry Cobden a rare booking for the yard.
