Form & Verdict

Stayed on past Steady The Ship on the run-in at Newton Abbot (2m, good) this month and is now 3-8 over fences; recent 4lb rise doesn't look excessive and he's a likely contender again here.

Dual chase winner on good ground in summer 2022 and probably on a workable mark back over hurdles but has fitness to prove after 578-day absence and looks opposable on today's ground.

Form & Verdict

Began chasing career with two 2m4f wins in blinkers this spring (made all both times) and bounced back from a lesser effort when second to Shareef Star over 2m at Newton Abbot (good) this month; likely to make another bold bid from the front here.

Form & Verdict

Won a slow-ground chase in France last summer (2m2f) but started off for David Pipe with two heavy defeats over 2m5f at Newton Abbot this month, the latter on Monday; dropped back in trip and fitted with first-time blinkers here; others have considerably less to prove.

Form & Verdict

Opened chasing account in low-grade event at Market Rasen (2m1f, good) in early June but was safely held on both subsequent outings; contests this stronger race from 2lb out of the weights and needs a good boost from the first-time cheekpieces.

Kept on strongly to win by over 7l at Worcester (2m, good) a fortnight ago and is now 2-4 since his wind op in March; 7lb higher here but not yet fully exposed over fences and needs to be taken very seriously.
