Form & Verdict

Inconsistent mare who was tailed off on latest outing in April; beat an in-form rival to score at Hereford (3m1f, good) two starts ago, though, and today's 4lb higher mark is probably not beyond her.

Bounced back to form to beat AJP Kingdom at Market Rasen (2m7f, good) in August but the form looks dubious, given that several flights were omitted and the race developed into a sprint; quickly back in the doldrums on latest outing; others look much safer.

Form & Verdict

Won over fences in April (2m3f, good) but his two hurdling runs in June/July were no better than respectable (no match for easy winner when runner-up on first occasion); on balance others are more persuasive.

One win in each of the last three years, the latest at Chepstow in April; not the force of old and his last three races (twice runner-up) were over hurdles but he also has the 2022 chase form to figure prominently.

Form & Verdict

Didn't progress after last autumn's novice win, but was evidently well suited by the move up to 2m7f when winning off a reduced mark at Worcester (good to soft) this month; 6lb rise probably demands a bit more from him .

Back in form when last seen in September 2022, winning over 2m7f at Worcester (good to soft; 1lb lower) and then a close third at Bangor; how he'll fare after his absence remains to be seen and perhaps the market will guide.

Capitalised on some help from the handicapper when surging clear to win by over 5l over C&D (good) last month; remains very well treated on form shown at around this time last year and is unexposed over this sort of trip; needs to be taken very seriously.

Returned from a long absence in September; all four runs this autumn have been over hurdles and he took a step back in the right direction when fifth of 13 over C&D (good to soft) a fortnight ago; he was an easy winner of this race three years ago and is not discounted now back over fences.
