Form & Verdict

Very useful on the Flat in his prime and, on just his second hurdling start, was pushed out to win by 4l at Wincanton (1m7f, good) last month; spoiled chance by refusing to settle at Newton Abbot 17 days ago (favourite) but has strong claims if more relaxed here.

J: Charlie Hammond

T: Dr Richard Newland

Formerly useful on the Flat and a dual hurdle winner in spring 2022; signed off for Brian Barr below form but was only 3-1 on debut for this yard at Bangor and after losing ground quickly it was reported that he bled; likely contender should the wheels stay on.

Useful on the Flat in his prime, and a dual hurdle winner in spring 2022; ended last year with some disappointing hurdle runs for Brian Barr but makes stable debut from a very dangerous mark; can't be ignored.

Keen-going sort; two novice wins last spring but little impact in four handicaps since; continues to slide down the weights and may revive on good ground at some stage.

Form & Verdict

Placed in Uttoxeter maiden hurdle (2m, good) just over a year ago and subsequently developed into a useful chaser (two wins); not seen since below-par run in the autumn but still needs to be taken very seriously on this return to hurdling.

Placed in low-grade Flat handicap last summer (1m3f; RPR 53) but was safely held in two juvenile hurdles for new stable in the autumn and will need to take a big step forward here.
