Got back on track when winning run-of-the-mill Cartmel maiden (2m1f, good) in July but was safely held in Fontwell handicap the following month and others have more compelling form.

C&D winner off today's mark for Donald McCain last October (good ground) but returned from break with two down-the-field Flat runs for Fergal O'Brien in June/July and needs to prove her wellbeing on first run for new trainers.

Didn't really take to chasing at start of this year (two attempts) and also disappointed when back over hurdles in February; returns from 231-day absence with quite a bit to prove but ran well when fresh last autumn and has slipped to a very good mark.

0-3 over fences, most recently a well-held third behind Ardmayle and Mr Coldstone over C&D last month; however, defied a 4lb higher mark over hurdles here last June and has possibilities if back to that sort of form.

Well beaten in first two handicap hurdles (both in March) but was placed in a Newbury maiden (2m, good to soft) last autumn and is well worth keeping an eye on in the betting before today's seasonal debut.

Minor honours at best in his first 12 starts (one of the best was at this track in 2021) but he then returned from a layoff to win by a street at Southwell (2m, heavy; made most) in November; only four ran in that race but his subsequent 7lb rise also doesn't look too harsh on previous best form; this race should be a lot more competitive but he's on the shortlist.
