J: Conor O’Farrell

T: Micky Hammond

Talented on the Flat in France (RPR 90) and he was sent off the 10-11 favourite for his hurdle debut at Sedgefield (2m1f, good to soft) in November, where he travelled well until making a bad mistake three out and finished well beaten; has the potential to leave that bare form well behind.

Form & Verdict
Below par at Ayr (1m5f) last time and his four wins this year have come over 1m4f; however, this prominent-racer may get an uncontested lead in this field and could capitalise if bouncing back to form.

Form & Verdict
Won at Redcar (1m2f, good) last month and respectable sixth of 14 in the Cumberland Plate (1m3f, good to soft) subsequently; below par at York (1m4f) last time but could go well now back down to what seems his optimum trip.

J: Connor Beasley

Has impressive stats as he's 4-7 since joining the Tutty yard and 2-3 at Carlisle; regained the winning thread at Redcar (1m2f, good) last time and that form is working out very well; respected up just 3lb.

Form & Verdict
Untested beyond 1m on the Flat, and on fast ground, but the way he stayed on for fifth of 13 at York two starts ago (1m, good; denied clear run) suggests he's well worth a crack at this trip, and his pedigree also provides optimism regarding stamina; again ran well in defeat last time.

Form & Verdict
3yo who won at Beverley (1m2f, good to firm) in May on his second handicap start; 1m4f may have stretched him at Newcastle last time but he was also below par over 1m2f at Doncaster previously, and has to get back on track.

Form & Verdict
Kept on well for a close third on debut at Southwell (1m, AW) in May; two lesser runs followed on turf (1m/1m1f, good to firm/good) but he's had a bit of a break and may be able to tap back into his initial promise on this handicap debut; no surprise to see a bold show.
