Form & Verdict

0-11 under rules but has made the frame in all six completed starts over fences, the latest when second of seven behind a dual subsequent winner at Ffos Las (3m, good) in April; not seen since, but has gone well fresh before and is likely to play a part.

Both wins in Class 5, including an easy success at Ffos Las (3m, soft) in January; looks potentially better than that grade but was only fourth (below par) when favourite for a Class 4 there last month.

Opened account on seasonal debut at Fakenham (3m, good) in October and took form to new level when winning pretty comfortably over C&D (soft) last month; commands respect.

Only a modest fourth on heavy ground at Uttoxeter last time but otherwise in great form this term, opening his account at Fakenham (3m, good) then solid second at Lingfield (2m7f, soft); could well bounce back.

Form & Verdict

Three wins over fences this year, the latest an emphatic 24l success at Sedgefield (3m3f, good to soft) nine days ago for which he has been put up by the same amount as his penalty; return to this trip unlikely to be an issue and should be hard to beat; 3-6 under Toby Wynne.

10st 5lb

J: Toby Wynne

0-7 over hurdles as opposed to 3-12 in chases, and he hasn't been at his best over fences on his last three starts; however, he ran well for a fair way at Sedgefield (3m3f) last month in a race he won last year, and that was his first start since May; has a lower hurdle mark and is not discounted.

Form & Verdict

Won a maiden hurdle here (2m4f, good to soft) late last year, but struggled in handicaps subsequently; makes his chase debut after six months off and still has stamina to prove, but his dam is a half-sister to a couple of winning chasers including the smart Made In Taipan.

Form & Verdict

1-1 in points and after finishing a well-held third in both starts over hurdles, he didn't run badly when again finishing third in a similar contest on chase debut at Warwick (3m, good) in April; still unexposed and this sharper track may suit him, so he can't be dismissed if ready to go after six months off.

Form & Verdict

1-2 in points and only had five starts under rules; not disgraced when third of four on chase debut at Cartmel (3m2f, good) in August and was 12lb out of the weights when tailed off at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good) last month; can run off his proper mark this time, but others still make more appeal.
