Form & Verdict

Placed in three consecutive handicaps in the spring (twice over C&D) and returned from break to win 2m4f maiden here (good to soft) last month; seems versatile regarding ground; ought to be right in the thick of things again.

Has rediscovered some form on last two outings, more recently when clear second at Hexham (2m, heavy) last month, and remains well handicapped on past exploits but some of the others appeal more all the same.

Dual course winner (2m4f/2m); not firing on all cylinders this season but last month's Newcastle third (2m4f, heavy) was a big step back in the right direction and that form is working out well; sure to be suited by the return to this track and remains on a good mark; good chance.

Had excuse when below form over fences on seasonal debut (bled from the nose) but didn't run well when back over hurdles in December either; given a chance by the handicapper and should be fine on today's ground but has a lot more to prove than some.

Outran 66-1 odds when placed in Catterick novice (2m3f, soft) in December 2020 but not seen over hurdles since a lesser effort later that month; bounced back from some poor Flat runs with a close second last month (1m6f; RPR 66) but still not an easy one to predict on this handicap hurdle debut.

2-4 over hurdles last season, the latter win gained in Sedgefield novice (2m1f, good to soft) in April; not seen since two below-par Flat runs in the spring but could quite plausibly have some improvement to come in handicap hurdles.

Only win was in a modest C&D novice last June (good to soft, cheekpieces on for first time); some fair efforts since, including a second off this mark in a C&D handicap in August (good); lacks a recent run, but a chance.

Comparatively exposed with a record of just 1-9 over hurdles, the win gained at Cartmel (2m1f, good to soft) in June; however, he's a leading player on the figures back in a novice event and has back class (formerly useful on Flat).

Form & Verdict

Made the frame in three Irish maiden hurdles for Gavin Cromwell in March/April, perhaps most notably when third of 20 at Naas (2m, good to yielding) on second occasion, but her stable debut in June was disappointing and we haven't seen her again since; others have much less to prove.

Form & Verdict

Left clear at final fence to score by 10l at Sedgefield (2m3f, good to soft) last month and is now 2-4 for Iain Jardine; evidently in good heart but combination of drop back in trip and switch back to hurdling may not be ideal here.

Won in fine style at Musselburgh (2m7f, soft) in November and is just 3lb higher today; however, he hasn't been at the same level on his three starts since and was pulled up last time; this 10yo needs to get back on track.

Took form to new level when beating subsequent Edinburgh National winner Inis Oirr by 7l at Musselburgh (2m7f, soft) in November and is only 4lb higher today, but wasn't in quite the same nick on either subsequent start at Musselburgh and, on balance, others look stronger here.

Posted career-best performance when scoring by 7l over C&D (soft) in November; not quite in same form when well-held third here (2m4f, soft) on New Year's Day, though, and might remain vulnerable off a mark this high.
