Form & Verdict

7yo whose sole win was in January 2018; runner-up over C&D last August off 7lb higher but all four starts since (one this term) have been way below that form; it's possible he needed his reappearance run in May but others have more pressing claims.

Form & Verdict

Made all in Beverley novice (1m2f) in April and he's run creditably in defeat in handicaps on his five starts since, the latest over C&D; acted on fast ground in previous two seasons; this race looks a bit less demanding and he should deliver another bold show.

Held up; has won once (last June) in the last three years; competitive on most starts this term and although latest was an exception, 1m2f appears to excuse that; well capable of a very prominent finish.

Form & Verdict

Pretty useful hurdler/chaser these days, not the force of old and off since April; his last Flat win was in 2016 and there's more for him to prove on firmer than good; chance judged on 2020 Flat form but well beaten on sole Flat start last year.

Four-time hurdle winner who is well treated on jumps form as recent as April, and he won on the Flat in September; however, he finished down the field on the Flat the next twice and it was the same story back over hurdles at Cheltenham in November; needs to get back on track.

Won the 2018 Greatwood at this meeting; first Flat win for six years came when edging home in September; major backward steps in that sphere in his two starts since, which dents confidence in him, but he is very well handicapped judged on plenty of hurdles and chase form, including from last term; cheekpieces (last worn in March) return.

Form & Verdict

Won on Flat (1m5f, AW) last November and over hurdles (2m1f, soft) in December; not so encouraging on last five starts (back on Flat for last two) and was sold out of Gary Moore's for £8,500 at the end of May; needs to find extra judged on his limited Flat turf form.

Last hurdles win came over C&D (good) in December 2022, having also won the same contest the previous year; nowhere near that level in recent times, finishing a remote fourth of five at Plumpton (2m4f; first time tongue-tie) 39 days ago; plenty to prove.
