Form & Verdict

Progressive chaser this year and had no trouble justifying odds-on favouritism in a 2m novice hurdle at Worcester a month ago when Ike Sport was back in third; he might well defy a penalty.

Front-runs; had a terrific year in 2022, winning three chases (up to 2m3f) and two novice hurdles (all on good ground), but the bubble burst that autumn; favourably treated now but all seven wins on good ground.

Did well in spring/summer 2022 when winning three handicap chases and two novice hurdles; back on a good mark and ran as though his Sandown race (after a break) was needed; ideally wants good ground so the recent rain counts against him; likes to lead.

T: Richard J Bandey

Good-ground specialist who did very well in spring/summer 2022, winning three handicap chases and two novice hurdles; ran creditably in the second of his three runs this year and has dropped 4lb since but he needs to be at his peak and seemingly needs the ground to dry out.

Form & Verdict

Bought out of a French claiming hurdle; beaten 7l in two novices at Worcester (2m4f/2m), latterly behind Give Me A Moment; will do well to reverse those placings even with a pull in the weights; now has tongue tied.

Seemingly aided by first-time cheekpieces when very close second in Southwell handicap (2m4f, good) in June then doubled his hurdling tally in C&D novice the following month; probably still on a workable mark; shortlisted.

Came good in Taunton handicap (2m3f, good to soft) in March and runer-up in three of his four subsequent handicaps, most recently at Southwell (2m4f, good; cheekpieces added) last month; will cope if the ground ends up soft and has very good chance at the weights on return to novice company.

Off the mark over hurdles with clearcut success at Taunton (2m3f, good to soft) in March and probably bettered that performance when second to well-backed rival at Ludlow (2m5f, good to soft) last month; will be dangerous if the first-time blinkers have any positive effect.

Bumper winner who chased home the favourite on his hurdling debut at Worcester (2m, good) and that was after 331 days away; should improve and be in the mix.
