Form & Verdict

C&D winner who returned from a break in good form last time, without the usual cheekpieces, off the same mark as tonight; is entitled to come on for that and, despite his poor strike-rate, goes on the shortlist for a yard also responsible for Yorktown.

5-28 on AW compared to 1-17 on turf; may have needed his only start this summer (50-1, turf) and he's well handicapped given some of last year's AW and turf form, so he needs a second look in the returning cheekpieces which did the trick for him off this mark over C&D last December.

Form & Verdict

Didn't look to see out 2m before finding traffic down to 1m4f last time; tonight's easy 1m6f may well suit in a first-time tongue-tie and he could yet be capable of better under an experienced 7lb claimer.

Couple of expensive blowouts after a pleasing comeback last season; goes without cheekpieces on his comeback from ten months off/AW debut and it will be interesting to see how he goes in the market.

Wincanton maiden winner (2m4f, good to soft) who has held his own in all four subsequent handicaps (2m-3m) without looking ahead of his mark; it was a Class 2 last time at Cheltenham and this might not be so demanding; unraced in cheekpieces over hurdles but these aids worked well for him on the Flat.

Henry The Fifth

9st 0lb

J: William Carson

T: Anthony Carson

Well handicapped on his best form and he returned from a lengthy absence with a fair fourth of 11 at Southwell (1m6f) last month; could be dangerous if he can build on that but a strike-rate of 1-29 is off-putting.
