Form & Verdict

No impact on the AW last time but had previously been in fine form over hurdles, winning four in a row and finishing second twice; career-high mark makes life much tougher but he is effective over C&D and makes more appeal than most.

6-17 over hurdles, the latest win gained at Cartmel (2m1f, good) in May; very respectable fifth off today's career-high mark in competitive race at Market Rasen (2m4f, good to soft) in July; probably won't be far away.

Has pretty good 6-25 strike-rate over hurdles (includes a C&D win) and was not beaten far when sixth on slower-than-ideal ground last month, after a break; current mark is workable; contender if that recent outing has brought him on.

Form & Verdict

Off the mark over hurdles at the seventh attempt when scoring narrowly at Worcester (2m, good to soft) in June; subsequently well beaten on the Flat; may bounce back returning to hurdles and can't be ruled out off 3lb higher than for that Worcester success.

Form & Verdict

Quickfire hat-trick in April but has paid the price and the handicapper has had the upper hand since; way below his best when tailed off at Bangor (2m3f, good) last time but had previously been consistent; a place may be the best he can hope for off his current mark.

Twice a winner over hurdles but didn't really take to fences in the spring; underwent wind surgery during five months on the sidelines and may be best watched on this return to hurdling after his break.

Good strike-rate of 5-13 over fences and both the ground (good to soft) and company (Grade 2) were excuses when pulled up at Wincanton in November; a prolific run during the last 12 months has seen his mark rise and he'll need to be right on the ball back from his break after a wind op.
