Form & Verdict

Posted sound effort when placed in big-field Uttoxeter handicap (2m7f, good) last month and competes off the same mark again here but this 10yo is nothing like the force of old and has become very inconsistent.

Came from the rear to win consecutive races at Market Rasen (2m4f, good) in June and has remained in good form since; stays at least 2m7f and is worth a crack at today's longer trip; probably won't be far away.

Form & Verdict

Became disappointing for Nicky Henderson last year but was placed in two maiden hurdles for new stable this summer (2m/2m4f) then won easily by 16l when upped to 3m2f for Newton Abbot handicap on Monday; will be hard to beat under 7lb penalty if in similar form again here.

Neither 3m2f trip nor familiar assertive tactics to blame when dropping out quickly on last month's chasing debut at Newton Abbot (beaten 28l); needs to jump better, but too early to write off; down a useful 6lb.

Form & Verdict

Unplaced all seven hurdling starts but attracted good market support at Hexham (2m7f, good) last month, where he was stalking the leaders before penultimate-flight error caused jockey's saddle to slip and effectively ended his chance; effectively 1lb lower here and can't be ignored.
