Form & Verdict

Ended 19-race losing run at Yarmouth (1m6f, good to firm) in May and he scored again at Chelmsford (2m; made all) last month before a creditable second at Kempton last time; on lower mark on this return to turf and he should give it another good shot in suitable conditions; tongue-tie reapplied.

Form & Verdict

3yo who struggled in his first four starts but he really clicked into gear with an emphatic win in 1m6f handicap at Salisbury (firm; blinkers added) last Saturday; well treated under a penalty for that success (due to be 4lb higher in future) and he's open to more progress on this step up to 2m; strong claims.

Form & Verdict

Had mixed record over hurdles in his first five runs for this yard but he returned to the Flat with a 1m6f win here (good; 16-1) early this month; kept on strongly to score with authority in that race and a 2lb rise for that success looks fair; respected back up in trip.

T: Jennie Candlish

Three-time Flat winner who opened hurdles account with ready handicap win at Stratford (2m2f, good to soft) in April and lost out only by a head at Fakenham (2m4f, good) last month; that form isn't anything out of the ordinary and he's not yet proven over this far, but he's a major player back in novice company nevertheless.

Form & Verdict

Plenty of creditable efforts under both codes this year but he didn't fire over hurdles in Jersey on his penultimate run and was a fading fifth behind Scudamore here (1m6f) last time; bit to prove again and he's still 5lb higher than for his Yarmouth win last month.

Dual 1m3f AW winner at Kempton but he's been generally disappointing since his last success 12 months ago; now 8lb lower than for that win but he's not got involved back on the Flat in his last three starts (1m4f-2m) and others are more convincing.
