Signed off last season with a good 2m1f Pontefract second in August and he's been in winning form over fences since; this veteran stayer needs considering on his return.

Form & Verdict

Readily bagged his third C&D success in April and has continued to run well under both codes since (scored on Flat at Carlisle); teed himself up nicely for this when running on late over 1m at Carlisle and he's a player for his in-form yard.

Form & Verdict

Fairly useful hurdle/Flat winner for Alan King but he's yet to fire in three runs for his current yard, coming in last of ten in 2m4f Hexham handicap in June; back from a break now off a reduced mark so he's no forlorn hope.

Well beaten in his first two runs back from a long absence but he attracted support at Beverley last time and fared better, beaten under 3l into fifth; needs another step forward to take this but it's quite possible.

Form & Verdict

Veteran hurdler who is winless since 2020 but he comes here on the back of creditable fourth over C&D so can't be totally dismissed off the same mark.

12yo who is not the force of old and has been beaten on his last 17 starts going back to July 2020; however, there have been some fair runs this season and he's been given a chance by the handicapper; each-way possible.

Form & Verdict

Dual 2m hurdles winner who didn't enjoy the best of runs when encouraging seventh in Summer Hurdle at Market Rasen (2m) on his handicap debut in July; has since posted a good fifth on the Flat at Brighton so he must enter calculations.

Won two juvenile hurdles last summer; broke Flat duck over 1m5f in June, then better than bare result when seventh in the Summer Hurdle at Market Rasen in July; fell early in only subsequent hurdle run; would have something to prove on ground slower than good but this mark not beyond him.
