Form & Verdict

Off the mark over hurdles in a Newton Abbot maiden in July and justified further short odds in two three-runner novices since; however, he was beaten 13l into fourth of five at Worcester (2m4f, again on good) when back into a handicap on latest start and needs to perform better than that.

Progressive over hurdles last season; similar profile over fences this term, winning his last two races, handicaps at Uttoxeter (2m4f, heavy; third, fourth and fifth have all won since) and at Taunton (2m7f, good; third has won since); went up 7lb for second win, but still improving and should go well.

Has taken well to fences this season and kept on well for narrow win at Uttoxeter (2m4f, heavy) in December; raised only 2lb for that and will also be suited by today's trip-and-ground combination; strong contender.

Form & Verdict

Tailed off in C&D novice (good to soft) last December but competitive in his other four hurdle runs (all on good, one 2m3f); idled in front when winning a Warwick maiden at 4-9 in May when last seen and has better form; seriously considered on handicap debut, in what could be a weak race.

Ten-race maiden; pipped at Warwick in April and returned to form when second at Worcester (again 2m on good) on latest start; has gone beyond 2m only once (below form over 2m4f in May) but the latest run gives some hope.

Dual French bumper winner; has since had four runs over hurdles and two wind operations; those British races were not greatly encouraging but he's from a top yard and makes his handicap debut, so it's hard to rule him out.

Very experienced in this sphere, claimer ridden on last seven starts; without a win since last October but lost out by only a head on penultimate start; not so good on latest but has plenty of form this May-September which puts her in the mix and rivals have lots of questions to answer.

Gained all three wins on heavy ground at Ffos Las (2m-2m6f); safely held in cheekpieces and then a visor on her last two hurdling starts (2m4f/2m); tries a new trip and sports first-time blinkers on this return to chasing; too well handicapped to rule out but needs to turn a corner.
