J: Tom Bellamy

T: D J Jeffreys

Ran big race in defeat over fences at Warwick (2m, good) in April, after a layoff, and his subsequent fifth over hurdles at Uttoxeter (2m, good) certainly wasn't a bad effort; recent 4lb drop seems generous; one to consider.

T: D J Jeffreys

Dual chase winner who returned from an absence with a close, front-running second over fences at Worcester (2m, good) last month; 0-8 over hurdles but that last run was off 7lb higher and he's an interesting contender back in this sphere.

Form & Verdict

Well handicapped on some of last season's hurdling form at around 2m and returned from five-month break with pretty good third over fences at Southwell (2m4f, good) two weeks ago; drops in grade today; good chance.

J: Sean Bowen

T: Martin Keighley

Won on stable debut over C&D (good) in May and second to well-handicapped winner at Southwell (2m, good) next time; good to soft ground may have been against him when below par at Newton Abbot last time and he could play a leading role now back on a better surface.

J: Sam Twiston-Davies

T: Martin Keighley

Returned to form to make winning stable debut at Stratford (2m1f, good) in May; no match for easy winner when second at Southwell last month and probably doesn't have much margin for error off current mark but is the one with least to prove here; seems best on good ground but handles good to soft.

7 yo Gelding

OR: 89

Form & Verdict

Won two-finisher selling hurdle at Uttoxeter (2m, good; first-time blinkers) last month and wasn't beaten far when fifth of six there on chasing debut three weeks ago; eight of 12 scheduled fences were omitted that day, though, and the form may not be reliable.

Form & Verdict

Needs to get back on track after an early fall and a disappointing effort on his two appearances last month but is now only 1lb higher than when making all for ready win at Newcastle (2m, good) in February; will be dangerous if back on song.

J: Danny McMenamin

T: Chris Grant

Progressive chaser who seems to handle most conditions; three wins since December, the latest when upped in trip at Newcastle (2m4f, heavy) last month; more required from a 4lb higher mark, but he adores this track and will have no issue dropping back in trip; key player.

His stamina is a concern and he needs to bounce back from a below-par third at Sedgefield (2m1f, soft) last month; however, prior to that he won two in a row here (2m, good/heavy) and the return to this track could trigger a revival; may play a leading role if seeing it out.
