Form & Verdict

Often a trail-blazing front-runner but has run with credit three consecutive times since switching to much more patient tactics, most recently when second of nine at Worcester (2m, good) a week ago; competes off same mark here; probably won't be far away.

Never remotely competitive at Worcester last month; usually consistent but she's hard to win with (3-46) and will do well to win this.

Usually ridden very patiently and is quite a tricky mare to win with but she's pretty consistent and was beaten only by a neck by Saddlers Quest at Newton Abbot (2m1f, good to soft) one month ago when last seen; raced mainly on good ground; probably won't be far away.

Very useful on the Flat in his prime and returned from five-month break to make very encouraging handicap hurdle debut at Uttoxeter (2m, good) two weeks ago; dangerous if able to build on that performance.

Came good over hurdles at fifth attempt with clearcut success at Warwick (2m, good) in May; managed only third of five off new mark at Southwell (2m, good) last month but is not yet fully exposed in this sphere and has since run well on the Flat.

Won first three completed handicaps (two over C&D) and was runner-up in his next three; has fitness to prove after 221-day break but there is quite plausibly more improvement in him this year.

Won at Stratford (2m, good) last September and short-headed at Huntingdon (2m, good) in November, before a pretty solid fifth of ten at Wincanton (1m7f, good to soft); can give another good account but there's a suspicion he'll be vulnerable here against some progressive rivals.

Generally very disappointing since winning novice hurdle for different stable in 2019 and didn't find much after travelling well for a long way at Worcester (first run after wind op) in May; too well handicapped to be ruled out but others have much less to prove.

Very well treated on his novice win at Leicester (1m7f, heavy) for Nigel Twiston-Davies two years ago but he's been mostly disappointing since and was tailed off over C&D on his reappearance last month; cheekpieces now return on this switch back to testing ground but others are more convincing.
