Form & Verdict

Came good with two wins at end of last season (maiden/handicap) and was second to bang-in-form subsequent winner on latest outing at Bangor (2m, good) in May; also has form on slower ground; can make his presence felt if fully tuned up after break.

Returns to hurdling after two narrow defeats in handicap chases; has won three in this discipline and he's on a competitive mark, albeit 3lb higher than when second to Collingham in this 12 months ago.

Form & Verdict

Gained three of his four hurdling wins over this C&D (all on soft), and lost out only by a short head here in March (heavy); not seen since running poorly in first-time cheekpieces (now removed) at Aintree festival in April but current mark is workable if he's fully tuned up.

Form & Verdict

2-8 over hurdles, the latter win gained at Warwick (2m, good to soft) in February; didn't run badly in valuable series final at Haydock (1m7f, good) in April but probably needs a career best on this seasonal debut.

Back hurdling and jumped better than previously when stylish winner of 2m Warwick handicap 30 days ago; up 4lb but he still has few miles on the clock and is weighted to go well again; player.

Form & Verdict

Delivered on earlier promise when ending last season with two good-ground novice wins (1m7f/2m; tongue-tie fitted); makes handicap debut after 198-day layoff but should be fine on today's slower ground and ought to have more to offer.

Form & Verdict

Back in good form with tongue-tie fitted this summer, winning twice at Worcester (2m, good); seems versatile regarding ground but didn't fire when last in action and others in this line-up have more persuasive profiles.

Off the mark over hurdles at seventh attempt in run-of-the-mill maiden at Market Rasen (2m2f, good) in June; has a lot more on his plate in this competitive handicap and the slower ground is probably not ideal.

All three wins here, two in bumpers and a maiden hurdle (2m2f+) a year ago; best effort since when close fourth over C&D last month (in cheekpieces for first time, behind Magna Moralia) and each-way hopes.

Enjoyed a revival and won twice over fences in the summer (2m5f/2m1f) but disappointed when back over hurdles last month and it's hard to know what to expect from him here; effective on good/good to soft but probably doesn't want anything slower.
