Form & Verdict

Hasn't shown his best in two chasing starts this spring, after a break (very tough task in the latest, when sporting visor for first time); novice hurdle winner last summer and repeat of that would make him hard to beat.

Hasn't found his best form this year and latest Bangor fourth only a minor step in the right direction; now 19lb lower than when winning in May 2022 but doubts until showing more positive signs.

Just his third career start when winning decisively at Warwick last month, despite jumping right; open to more progress and should be firmly in the shake-up again.

Won well at Warwick (2m5f, good) and good second in a 2m4f novice hurdle at Southwell, both in spring 2022; graduates to a handicap, fences and a new trip for this first run since, with his two years off adding to the uncertainty.

Won a point-to-point bumper on debut in May and fair fourth in Worcester bumper in August; not fluent when pulled up on hurdle debut at Uttoxeter last month and probably best watched until showing some more promise.

Form & Verdict

Dual Flat winner (at 1m2f, good/good to firm)) and has acquitted himself well in three hurdling starts since joining Dan Skelton; close fourth in a handicap in the latest and return to quicker surface might help; ability to stay this trip open to question but still in the picture.

Form & Verdict

No match for an easy winner at Newcastle last month but had earlier shown a good attitude to score at Sedgefield (2m1f); shapes as if he will stay this trip and not much improvement needed to be a threat.

Led close home to win here (2m3f, good) off today's mark in October and put a lesser run behind him when keeping on for respectable fourth here (2m3f, soft) last month; not one to rely upon, though, and would appeal more on better ground.
