Form & Verdict

All 11 wins (seven on AW, two over hurdles) achieved in single-figure fields so will cope if it gets tactical; 1m6f on turf last time wouldn't have been his bag but he finished behind two of these in the Northumberland Plate the time before; handicapper has relented.

Nine AW wins, the most recent in this event 12 months ago when it was still a conditions race; has slipped to an attractive mark but the veteran has a doubt over current form, having posted two duck eggs this year; perhaps on the wane.

Absent 295 days before his only race last season, when seemingly not discredited behind a 1-5 favourite in a two-finisher Listed race in September; reliable and fully effective on AW, including at this track, but the handicapper has not cut him any slack.

Well-beaten favourite for this race in 2019; won a four-runner Listed race over 2m here in September 2020; returned from a 467-day absence just 16 days ago, with a satisfactory fourth of five in Listed race here but to win this demands so much more, probably a career best.

Form & Verdict

Fair ninth in the Cesarewitch last month, a race he won in 2017; handicapper is giving him a chance and it will be interesting to see what sort of rhythm he gets into from/near the front back on AW (he landed Northumberland Plate on it in 2018); cheekpieces favoured.

Often front-runner; one of his big days came over C&D in 2018 when winning the Northumberland Plate; not in the same form these days as a 10yo and although he's still been competitive on three of his last four starts this winter, those were with falling marks in handicaps; more to do today.

Well beaten on latest start and only fifth to Bandinelli the time before (C&D); reasons to be hopeful include the wind surgery soon after latest outing and his record fresh (wins on AW off 67, 246 and 229 days off); James Doyle 2-2 on him.

Rose through handicap ranks last year and recorded PB on reappearance over C&D in March (won); not disgraced in top handicaps in June the last twice and he's surely not handicapped out of this; cheekpieces return to replace blinkers.

Useful form as Flat/AW winner at up to 2m1f, including on soft; 0-6 over hurdles, where he has yet to show the same ability; while last month's third of 12 in handicap at Sedgefield (2m4f, good) was narrowly his best form in this sphere, more is needed from him.

J: Harry Cobden

Useful Flat-racer who was placed in two soft-ground novice hurdles for Richard Hughes at Plumpton last winter; didn't fire on handicap hurdle debut in March and subsequent Flat form has been disappointing (last two runs were for this stable); reverts to hurdling with a bit to prove; swaps visor for refitted cheekpieces.

J: Oisin Orr

T: Lucinda Russell

Excuses since returning from a year off, including on stable debut last time when back in the tongue-tie worn for all wins; looks to retain most of his ability but is 2lb above his highest successful mark and a tactical affair wouldn't be ideal.
