Form & Verdict

Has continued to run well since his successful chasing debut over 2m4f here (good) in May but it was a heavy fall he took at Worcester three weeks ago (2m7f); was travelling fine at the time and he's handicapped to go well if none the worse.

J: Jordan Nailor

Well handicapped on his Huntingdon win (2m7f, good) last October but he's generally struggled since and was a well-held seventh of 14 at Taunton last month; comes with risks attached and he ideally wants quicker ground.

J: Bryony Frost

T: David Killahena & Graeme McPherson

Dual chase winner who seems ideally suited by good or quicker ground; struggled over hurdles in first two runs for this yard but was a rallying second back over fences at Exeter (2m3f, good to firm) last month; this step back up in trip is a positive and he has possibilities if the rain stays away; due to be 2lb higher in future.

21-race maiden but placed plenty of times and only narrowly failed in a 2m5f good-ground handicap at Newton Abbot when last seen in May; lacks a recent run but he's off the same mark.

27-race maiden who was unable to land a significant blow at Ffos Las (3m, good) this month; ought to cope with today's slower ground but needs a significant boost from the change of headgear.

26-race maiden who was last of three finishers when favourite for uncompetitive maiden hurdle last month; switches back to fences on a workable mark and is suited by this C&D but patience in him has worn thin; visor the headgear of choice this time.

Frustrating type who made it 0-25 when unseating in a Wetherby chase latest; usually seen over fences but twice finished second in maiden hurdles last May; good enough to win this but no guarantee he will; cheekpieces return in place of a visor and wind surgery since last start.

Form & Verdict

Eight defeats include three over fences and he didn't jump at all well before pulling up at Worcester two weeks ago (2m4f); risky on the back of that, especially over a new trip with a hood tried.
