Form & Verdict

Dropped out disappointingly on his handicap debut over hurdles a month ago but there was plenty of promise prior to that and he goes chasing still relatively unexposed; respected.

Form & Verdict

Winning pointer who didn't hang about over hurdles and he's bidding for a C&D hat-trick after signing off last season on a high (both wins in new cheekpieces); up 3lb for beating only one other finisher last time and the second is now 1-30, but this isn't strong either.

Won two chases in the autumn (2m7f/3m1f) but was then pulled up three consecutive times; step back in the right direction when modest third at Wincanton (3m1f, soft) in February but needs to do better again here.

Form & Verdict

Ran in these colours for Ben Pauling, whom he left after finishing lame at Stratford in April; still a maiden (0-7 chasing) and not that consistent, but he has had wind surgery and his mark has never been lower.

12-race maiden who had a very mixed record over fences for Ben Pauling last season and made disappointing stable debut when last of three at Plumpton (3m1f, good) last month; on a good mark now and some rain may aid his cause but he's not an easy one to predict; tongue-tie refitted.

Form & Verdict

Record of 2-22 in points and ten defeats under rules have been divided between hurdling and chasing; on the plus side, it was a fair run at Ffos Las last week when 5lb out of the weights.
