Form & Verdict
Hinted at possible return to form when keeping-on third at Stratford (2m6f, good) in March but was pulled up at Chepstow the following month; freshened up by another 80-day break since and has plummeted to a very dangerous mark, but it still takes a leap of faith to support him at present.

Looked out of sorts on all four appearances in 2021 but returned from break with much more encouraging effort last month, keeping on from the rear for modest third at Stratford (2m6f, good); needs to build on that performance here but continues to lurk on a dangerous mark.

Ended last season in poor form and also disappointed on both appearances this term in December; still quite lightly raced for his age but urgently needs to stop the rot.

Form & Verdict
16-1 winner here (2m, good to soft) in March, his first run for five months; will also be suited by today's longer trip and remains very well handicapped on older form but it's hard to tell whether he'll be in the right mood after another break.

Pretty useful over 2m4f for Oliver Sherwood in September 2020; not disgraced in July on first run for new trainer but two backward steps have followed, the latest over 3m; now he appears at about 2m for the first time since October 2019.

Form & Verdict
Dual chase winner; below peak form this spring but his Bangor third (2m4f, good) in May was very respectable and he's on a very good mark now; strong contender if first-time cheekpieces have positive effect.

Form & Verdict
Lightly raced 5yo who made winning chase debut in France (2m2f, very soft) last summer; not seen since running out at first fence 11 months ago but market support will make him of interest on today's British debut.
