Balkardy

11st 7lb

J: Isabel Williams

T: Evan Williams

Got back on the scoresheet over hurdles at Musselburgh (3m, soft) in February but he's been disappointing in both subsequent runs; record of 3-6 over fences but his last chase run was in 2022 and he has something to prove back in this sphere.

Second hurdle success when showing a good attitude and making virtually all over 3m (soft) at Musselburgh last month but he ran poorly behind a few of these at Warwick since; bounce-back called for.

J: Luca Morgan

T: Ben Pauling

All wins between June and August and he has figures of 312 returning from over six months out, so won't necessarily need the run (has had wind surgery since last outing last October); trying to cash in on lower hurdles mark makes sense, and he's 3-7 under Luca Morgan.

Pencreek

11st 8lb

J: Luca Morgan

T: Ben Pauling

Climbed the handicap in completing a summer hat-trick which included a C&D success (good); found another weights rise a step too far when well beaten by his sole rival here last month; missed recent engagement at Wetherby (self certificate); not ruled out but others look better handicapped.

Much improved since fitted with cheekpieces in the summer, completing hat-trick at Market Rasen (2m3f, good); beaten 8l by sole rival at Stratford last time but the winner boosted the form by following up; has risen in the weights but has solid credentials.

2-4 over fences, gaining both wins over 2m7f on good ground at Worcester; not yet fully exposed but has been absent since a heavy defeat last summer, and today's trip-and-ground combination may not be his cup of tea.

The Boola Boss

11st 2lb

J: Harry Cobden

T: Rebecca Curtis

Low-mileage 7yo who scored over fences at Worcester (2m7f, good) last June and, on second run following 345 days off, did so again this June when tongue tied first time; not proven beyond that but the latest win was pretty smooth and he can deal with the 5lb rise given today's opposition.
