Form & Verdict

Four wins here, including two easy C&D successes this summer; awarded latest race at Stratford after a narrow defeat (suffered interference); up another 4lb but clearly in great heart and likely to be in the shake-up again; often makes the running.

Form & Verdict

Ex-Irish; maiden hurdle winner last October and placed in two of three starts since a tongue-strap was applied, the latest when narrowly beaten at Limterick last month (in cheekpieces); sold for £11,500 since; worth noting in the betting on debut for stable that also runs Johnson's Blue.

Form & Verdict

Two wins last summer, including corresponding race on this card (off 7lb higher); little to show for three outings here this season (well behind Johnson's Blue latest) so plenty to prove but wind surgery since may provoke a revival; impossible to rule out.

Form & Verdict

Consistent and steadily progressive chaser over the last year, with three wins; well beaten in novice hurdles early in 2021 so no guarantee he'll transfer the chasing form but Ellis Collier's claim means he's receiving plenty of weight form all his rivals.

Three wins for Henry De Bromhead in 2018 (two of them chases, made all each time); no success since, including in points/hunter chases for Stephen McConville up to May; no threat on recent stable debut when held up (2m3f); could do better at this trip if leading but still fair bit to prove.
