Form & Verdict

Progressive mare with 4-14 strike-rate over hurdles; posted sound effort when keeping-on second behind a next-time-out winner at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good) last month and could still have untapped potential over today's longer trip; respected.

Form & Verdict

Left Richard Newland after two disappointing runs towards end of last summer but, having rejoined Martin Keighley, seemed to run well when second of three at Newton Abbot (3m2f, soft) in March; returns from another break today; on good mark now and the drop back in trip will suit; tongue-tie removed.

Hurdle/chase winner who is not as good as he was but retains some ability; modest fourth of six in a handicap hurdle at Market Rasen (2m7f, good) 19 days ago, form which gives him something to find here.

Form & Verdict

Three-time hurdle winner in 2021, most recently off mark 1lb higher at Market Rasen (2m7f, good) 13 months ago; raced a bit too freely when fitted with cheekpieces (retained) for latest start in December but still ran fairly well; player if fully tuned up after layoff.

J: Luke Scott

Three hurdle wins and his second over fences when reacting positively to this new headgear over C&D two weeks ago (good); that was hard work and he's 4lb higher in a race that might take more winning.

J: Sam Twiston-Davies

T: Dr Richard Newland & Jamie Insole

Three-time chase winner; kept on for modest third at Hereford (2m5f, good) in January but has not been firing on all cylinders this season and needs today's change of headgear to perk him up.

Form & Verdict

Revitalised by addition of blinkers in May/June, latterly when making all for clearcut success over C&D (good); still well handicapped on older form but ran poorly when unable to dominate at Uttoxeter last month and needs to bounce back from that.

T: Jamie Snowden

Won off an 11lb higher mark at Stratford in June of 2022 but very little to shout about since then and was 66-1 when tailed off here a month ago (2m2f); returning to further is no bad thing but he's lost his way.

The blinkers worked well initially (second then first) but last year ended prematurely after two modest efforts; has been quiet since returning, in no headgear over hurdles and fences.
