0-8 over hurdles and inconsistent, but he was a good second in a maiden hurdle at Catterick (2m3f, good) last month and this soft-ground bumper winner is a player today if repeating that latest form.

Headstrong sort who isn't progressing, but he's finished in the first three on all three hurdle starts (2m, soft/heavy) and settled better last time; showed promise in a point on good to yielding ground (unraced on good); this front-runner holds strong form claims in today's line-up.

Lightly raced 5yo who has shown some ability, including at Catterick last month on his first run since leaving Nicky Henderson, and he's one to watch in the betting on this first handicap start; however, he's not obviously well treated so improvement is needed.

First foal of the smart Pepite Rose (won nine races for Venetia Williams, peak RPR 158), and she made a perfectly satisfactory debut when 11l second of seven at Kelso (good; 11-2) six weeks ago; may improve.
