Form & Verdict
Seems to need goodish ground and in first-time cheekpieces he ran out a ready winner at Newcastle in March (2m6f; four ran); no show at Haydock but that was a better race for which he was 20-1; Peter Kavanagh's claim brings him down to the same mark as for his recent win.

Form & Verdict
Was completing a hat-trick when taking this 12 months ago off a 2lb higher mark and, although the ground was soft then, he's perfectly able on good; respectable third after wind surgery at Uttoxeter and in a better race than this; strong claims.

Runner-up over 3m at Southwell in April but fared less well back there a month ago when 2m4f shouldn't have been a problem; still has a decent show in him, for all that he's not the horse he was.

Bumper winner here on debut; useful novice hurdler back in 2017-18 but he hasn't stood a huge amount of racing in subsequent seasons; down in the weights now and latest Chepstow third (2m3f, soft) was better; slightly easier grade today and not ruled out.

Put two poor performances behind him when respectable fourth over C&D (heavy) last month and will be fine on today's much faster ground but he's nothing like the force of old and others are much more persuasive.

Form & Verdict
Ran quite well in a valuable 2m handicap at Haydock in April but he's not that consistent these days and his run here ten days ago was flat; dangerously treated should the change of headgear trigger something but, even then, his stamina is far from guaranteed over this far.
