Form & Verdict

Seven-race maiden but he has shown winning potential, second at Kempton last month (1m4f) before two good runs over this trip in better races than today's; handles good to soft but has to conclusively prove himself on slower; cheekpieces may help and he's one to consider.

J: Darragh O’Keeffe

T: Thomas Gibney

Flat winner in Britain; opened hurdles account at the sixth attempt, landing a C&D maiden in November; down the field in a valuable handicap at Fairyhouse last month; more relevant form in this context is his fourth placing in the Lartigue Hurdle at Listowel; also managed a fine third on the Flat in the Naas November Handicap; makes plenty of appeal in this grade.

Form & Verdict

Good record at this track, including a win in this race in 2020, and he justified favouritism in a small field at Musselburgh in June off a 2lb higher mark; poor since, including over C&D last time, and now comes here on a retrieval mission.

5 yo Mare

OR: 80

Form & Verdict

She was winning for the third time this season when gamely landing a 1m4f handicap (good to soft) here 17 days ago; 3lb rise manageable and likely to stay this far (stamina has been tested at 2m); soft ground would be an unknown but she looks a strong contender.

Form & Verdict

How much Flat ability he retains is a matter of debate but he ran right up to his best over hurdles when winning at Sedgefield in March; returns from a 140-day break for a new yard; others look more solid.

No win since scoring over hurdles here (2m4f, Class 2; from 9lb higher) in March 2022; could strip fitter for recent comeback run (Warwick), while the switch back to fences for the first time in 13 months could potentially rekindle a spark; one to consider.

More than two years since last time successful but often runs well and he's dropped to a career-low mark; Cobden booking takes the eye on return from a break.

Without a win since March 2022 but has accrued plenty of minor honours and it was always going to be tough last time at Aintree; suited by these smaller fields.

Form & Verdict

Two fast-ground wins as a 2yo; had been in good form this season until a poor run at Ffos Las three weeks ago (reportedly took a false step on the home turn); not a forlorn hope if handling the underfoot conditions.
