7 yo Mare

OR: 129

Form & Verdict

Much improved in the spring, completing a hat-trick when beating three rivals at Uttoxeter in May; 10lb penalty to defy but this progressive mare may well be up to the task if ready to fire after the break; front-runner.

In career-best form in the autumn, winning Market Rasen handicap (2m5f, good) before finishing second in 3m Listed race there; returned from break with disappointing run last month, though, and is not sure to be suited by this drop back in trip.

Useful mare who is 6-12 over rules fences and ran respectably in Listed grade at Market Rasen (3m, good to soft) when last seen four months ago; withdrawn from the Ultima on Tuesday due to heavy ground; successful in her last five handicap attempts and goes well fresh; interesting.

7 yo Gelding

OR: 132

Form & Verdict

Progressive pointer/hunter chaser in the spring, rounding off the campaign with a comfortable C&D win in May; has rejoined an in-form yard (two bumper runs for Ben Pauling three seasons ago) and open to further improvement but faces a real test under 10lb penalty.

Progressive last year, winning three times on good ground, and following a break he was better than ever when runner-up in the Ultima at Cheltenham (3m1f, heavy) last month under regular rider Beau Morgan; up 4lb to a career-high mark but may well play a leading role once more.

Runner-up in all three starts at this course, twice when hurdling and once over C&D (good to soft) which followed a successful return to fences at Uttoxeter last July; on the back foot from some way out in the Coral Gold Cup at Newbury in December, though, and left on the same mark since.

Won over hurdles at Uttoxeter (2m7f, good) in May and followed up when back over fences there (3m2f, good) in July; returned from a break with good second of 13 at Cheltenham (3m1f, good to soft) in October and this progressive 8yo may have more left in the tank, but it's needed in this red-hot handicap.

OR: 130

Form & Verdict

Not at his best in two hurdling outings at the start of the year (after wind surgery) and absent since; enough ability to make his presence firmly felt on chasing debut but bit to prove, clearly; first attempt beyond 2m3f+ (pedigree suggests he should relish this trip).

Useful hurdler two winters back; not disgraced on reappearance last term but has done little in his four starts since, over fences on last three; way down the weights but under a major cloud and not proven beyond 2m3f.
