Form & Verdict

Runner-up off 2lb higher at Worcester (2m, good to soft) in May 2019 on only start for Tom Lacey but was tailed off in Southwell seller when reappearing for new stable in June (built up big early lead but was easily reeled in); might settle better in refitted hood but looks risky.

Doubled his hurdling tally at Worcester (2m4f, good) in July and is now only 2lb above that mark but has become inconsistent this year and others in this line-up appeal more.

Would have won easier at Worcester (2m4f, good) but for some premature easing on the run-in but he went out like a light next time at Uttoxeter; usually consistent in the main and could bounce back from that.

Generally consistent and gained a second hurdle success when overcoming premature easing at Worcester last month; 4lb higher and this looks potentially more competitive but he has to be considered again.

Form & Verdict

Didn't progress from winning Flat debut in 2020 and hasn't shown much in three hurdles for new stable this summer; has more realistic chance to get competitive in this low-grade handicap but still makes only limited appeal from 2lb out of the weights.

Progressive 4yo who won four in a row (once over C&D) on good ground in May/June; found one too strong at Stratford (2m2f good) a week ago but goes again off the same mark here and remains very much of interest.

6-17 over hurdles, the latest win gained at Cartmel (2m1f, good) in May; very respectable fifth off today's career-high mark in competitive race at Market Rasen (2m4f, good to soft) in July; probably won't be far away.

Has very good 6-16 strike-rate over hurdles, the latest win gained at Cartmel (2m1f, good) in May; current mark probably requires a career-best effort but he could plausibly have untapped potential over this trip.

0-9 over hurdles; ran well here on consecutive starts this spring (2m2f/2m1f) and looked stretched by 2m5f when below that form last time but is 5lb out of the weights today and needs to find something extra.

7yo who was well held at Salisbury (1m6f) last month but that was after a creditable third on Tapeta at Wolverhampton (2m) and he won at Lingfield in June; still looks feasibly treated on that form and he's not ruled out back up in trip.

Very lightly raced since course bumper win in 2019 and returned from latest layoff with 22l defeat behind Appreciate over C&D last month; effectively 1lb higher from out of the weights today but still worth a glance in the betting.
