Form & Verdict

Trip, track and ground should hold no terrors and is only 1lb higher than for a cosy 1m5f win at Ayr in June; likely to give another good account.

Form & Verdict

Won two soft-ground Class 2 handicaps in 2021 and he is 2lb lower than for his Goodwood success 12 months ago; ran well in the Chester Cup on his return in May but it has been a struggle since, most recently at Goodwood 12 days ago; the forecast rain will help but there are risks attached now fitted with blinkers for the first time (mixed record in other headgear).

Form & Verdict

Improved on third start when readily landing a Haydock novice (extended 1m3f, good) in May; gelded and off for four months prior to a good second on his handicap debut at Kempton last month (1m3f), forced wide and leaving the impression he was capable of better; new trip today could help and a 4lb rise may not prove beyond this brother to the top-class Taghrooda.

Does not look straightforward but he delivered some solid runs as a Flat stayer last summer, including a last-gasp win over 2m1f at Killarney; fit from hurdling and respected on the best of his form.

Form & Verdict

Smart performer for Andre Fabre, winning a 1m4f handicap at Longchamp in September 2020 and runner-up in a 1m7f Group 2 the following month (heavy); sold for £18,000 13 months later; gelded since last seen; mammoth absence to overcome but he's not fully exposed and conditions should suit; one to note for market confidence.

He'll need others to underperform if he's to win this and he wasn't at his best when sixth of eight in the Champion Hurdle (2m, heavy); however, he went there following a fine handicap second at Kempton (2m5f, good to soft) and a Grade 2 win in the Kingwell Hurdle at Wincanton (1m7f, heavy), and he's in with an each-way shout if rediscovering that sort of form.

Appears to need ground softer than good; progressive sort who has landed some notable prizes within the last 12 months, justifying favouritism in the Kingwell Hurdle (Grade 2; beat Colonel Mustard) at Wincanton most recently; solid fifth to Iberico Lord in major C&D handicap in November (form has worked out well); has an attractive profile and should perform well.
