Form & Verdict

Bumper winner on debut; expensive to follow over hurdles last season but he had a wind op in January and he seems to have turned a corner, winning at Newton Abbot and Market Rasen last month; has to concede a chunk of weight all round but he is on the up and conditions should hold no terrors; leading contender.

Progressive over hurdles last season; similar profile over fences this term, winning his last two races, handicaps at Uttoxeter (2m4f, heavy; third, fourth and fifth have all won since) and at Taunton (2m7f, good; third has won since); went up 7lb for second win, but still improving and should go well.

Has taken well to fences this season and kept on well for narrow win at Uttoxeter (2m4f, heavy) in December; raised only 2lb for that and will also be suited by today's trip-and-ground combination; strong contender.

Form & Verdict

Half-brother to a winning pointer; unraced dam from a good French jumping family; makes his racecourse debut and only of interest if the betting speaks in his favour.

Safely held in handicaps at Ascot (2m3f) and Cheltenham (2m5f) in the autumn and not seen again since but returns in an easier race and is well worth keeping an eye on in the betting.

All four runs have been on good ground; made his debut in late August and was runner-up at about this trip over hurdles on first three starts; last of six, however, on handicap debut at Ascot (2m3f) 13 days ago and needs to bounce back from that.

Form & Verdict

Three bumper runs last season weren't without hope but she was very disappointing switched to the Flat at Kempton in May; something to prove now her attentions are turned to hurdling.
