Form & Verdict

Bumper winner who got off the mark over hurdles with a dominant display at Kempton (2m5f; first run after wind surgery) in May and he found more progress when runner-up in Grade 2 Persian War at Chepstow (2m3f, good) on his return last month; sets a useful standard back in calmer waters and his yard has a striking record in this race in recent years; strong contender.

Won at Chepstow (2m, soft) in his final bumper and he kicked off his hurdling career with an easy front-running win at Warwick (3m1f, good) in May; has a penalty after another break but he looks a useful hurdling prospect and is respected on this drop back in trip.

Stoutly bred gelding who made a good start when landing a Plumpton bumper (good) in May; came up short in another five-runner event on his hurdling debut at Hereford (2m3f, good to firm) last month but he rallied for second behind an 8-13 shot; still looked green in that race and he's open to progress on his step up to this trip.
