Form & Verdict

Won two in a row early this year (1m7f/2m, good to soft/heavy); no impact on handicap debut in the Imperial Cup next time but didn't run badly in that competitive race and this very lightly raced 5yo is open to improvement.

Gradually back to best over hurdles this year, good third of eight at Wincanton (2m4f, soft) 19 days ago; fine on good ground as well and ran creditably in the Imperial Cup on this course last season; very much in the mix.

Triple hurdle winner for Philip Hobbs; started off over fences for this yard but back hurdling the last twice and, in first-time cheekpieces, he went down only narrowly in a 2m4f handicap at Uttoxeter 23 days ago; acts well on heavy and unlikely to be far away despite going back up 3lb.

Tailed off on last hurdle start in May 2021 and he has a lofty mark to defy, but he's shown strong form in this code and is classy on the Flat (RPR of 109 when not beaten far in this year's Ebor); not ruled out.

Form & Verdict

Having edged down the weights he ended an 11-race losing run in a conditionals' handicap under Ben Bromley at Kempton (2m, good to soft) 11 days ago; just 1lb higher here (escapes a penalty but is 1lb out of the handicap) and he's a key player if conditions are okay (unproven on soft/heavy).

Clearcut winner at Kempton (2m, good to soft) in the autumn and bettered that performance when very close second in Sussex Champion Hurdle at Plumpton (2m, good) in April; only 1lb above that mark here but was below form on the Flat last time and has stamina to prove.

Form & Verdict

Lightly raced since promising third over C&D (soft) on British debut in 2020; got back on track when winning five-runner handicap at Warwick (2m, good) this May and, while today's task is tougher, he could have more to offer for his top trainer who has won three of the last five runnings.

4yo who won at Auteuil (2m1f, heavy) last November and followed up on British debut at Newbury (2m, soft); tailed off in Aintree Grade 1 next time and early faller on last month's handicap debut at Fontwell; not obviously well treated but he attracted market support last time and is not discounted.

Tailed off on last month's reappearance at Cheltenham but the good ground may not have suited; did well in handicaps on soft/good to soft last season, including a 9l second of 22 in the Imperial Cup, and he's a contender if able to leave his latest run well behind.

Front-runner; the cheekpieces are left off today and he was below par at Doncaster (2m, good to soft) in December last time out; however, that run may have come too soon, 13 days after a comfortable win there (2m, good to soft), and this course hurdles winner is not ruled out.

4yo who won last season on his first two hurdle starts (including over C&D) before a respectable midfield finish in the Triumph; however, he was well beaten on his handicap debut in April and it was the same story on last month's return at Cheltenham; big turnaround needed.
