Form & Verdict

Very useful hurdler on his day, the highlight his Grade 2 success here (1m7f, heavy) in early 2021; has failed to repeat that form since but looks interesting off 83 returned to the Flat for first time in three years; 1m6f winner in this sphere in 2019.

Struggled over hurdles last season but he was a Grade 2 winner in this code in January 2021 and, following a break, he returned to form with an easy win on the Flat at Haydock a fortnight ago; on his old form he's on a very attractive mark if continuing his revival now back over hurdles.

Form & Verdict

Not fully convincing on his form shown during a light 2022 campaign, best effort when third of four at Goodwood; however, he's only 2lb higher than when winning this race decisively (on soft ground) last year and Benoit De La Sayette takes off 3lb; respected on that basis.

Useful Flat-racer at his best; yet to build upon last winter's quite promising hurdling debut but, following a break, ran well to a point on recent handicap debut at Sedgefield (2m1f, soft); sports first-time blinkers here and has possibilities if that recent outing brought him on.

Sole win came in a maiden at this venue (11.5f, soft) two years ago; did well to finish fourth back here (1m6f, good to soft) three weeks ago, having come from a difficult position; could go well again, for all that he's 3lb out of weights back up in grade.

Form & Verdict

3yo filly who has form figures of 31241 since wearing a tongue-tie, the latest performance at Nottingham (1m6f, soft; drew clear late on) nine days ago; gives the impression she'll be suited by this longer distance; open to further progress and warrants respect under 6lb penalty.

1m4f winner when trained in France; it's been tough going for this yard but there was much more promise when a keeping-on sixth over the extended 1m at Wolverhampton 19 days ago; going back up in distance can help and this drop into 0-55 company also likely to be beneficial; check betting.
