Form & Verdict

Won last winter on his first three rules starts (1m7f-2m1f, including here on heavy) and he was a good second on handicap debut at Bangor (2m3f, soft) in March when last seen; this unexposed 6yo is open to further improvement for his leading northern yard and could go well.

Jungle Jack

11st 13lb

J: Peter Kavanagh

T: Donald McCain

Five hurdle wins at 1m7f-2m3f, including on heavy; returned from wind surgery with a close call at Kelso in February but he didn't run much of a race at Bangor (where he'd won two of his previous three course starts) three weeks ago which puts him down the list this time.

Form & Verdict

Won his sole French start (2m1f hurdle, heavy) and was a very easy winner of a handicap at Exeter (2m2f, good to soft) ten days ago on his first run for Venetia Williams; he'll be very hard to beat under a 7lb penalty if repeating that latest form.

J: Charlie Deutsch

T: Venetia Williams

Won his first three over fences, including a narrow defeat of Master Chewy on similar terms around here (soft) and later a Grade 2 at Ascot (2m3f); although placed since in 2m4f Grade 1s, he couldn't lay a glove on Nickle Back at Sandown, nor the front two in the Turners at Cheltenham; won't mind returning to 2m and, with course form, he has each-way claims.

Seems to handle any ground; early faller, having been badly hampered, on penultimate outing; ran creditably, albeit without ever threatening the all-the-way winner, in Grade 1 at Sandown (2m4f) latest when taking form figures in completed chase starts to 1112; Grade 2 winner in December; proving useful over fences but needs further progress in this field.

Form & Verdict

Off the mark at the fifth attempt in Doncaster novice (2m, soft) in February and he followed up on last month's handicap debut at Ayr (2m, good to soft); his pedigree provides optimism he'll be capable of better still and there's every chance he'll stay this far.

Likeable 2m hurdler who beat Cracking Rhapsody at Kelso (soft) in January and chased him home in the Morebattle there (good to soft) last time; just as effective on this course but now needs to find something extra.

Went close at Ayr (2m, good to soft) in November and won four-runner handicap over this C&D (soft) in January; solid third of six over C&D (soft) last time but there's a suspicion today's task will prove too competitive.

Not at his best when tried in a visor at Cheltenham in December but sound efforts with today's headgear either side of that, last time winning four-runner event over C&D (soft, Cracking Rhapsody second, third just beaten at Catterick on Tuesday); a possible.

Form & Verdict

This is his first run over hurdles since March 2020; however, he's on a competitive mark on last season's chase form and he's run well over fences on all three visits to Haydock; returns from a break having had wind surgery and with his trainer in good form; no surprise to see a good run.

Finished alone for sole chase win in early 2021; weights chance on best form last winter at 2m5f and 2m and might have needed both runs this winter after a break; is at least down in grade so not ruled out.

Sole chase success was when he finished alone in a three-runner Catterick novice contest in 2021; made no impression on his return from wind surgery over hurdles here (2m3f, soft) last month; would go close if running to his form of two chase runs here last season.

Having dropped down the weights he's on a handy mark on last season's best efforts, and he reappeared with a fair third at Lingfield three weeks ago; however, he needs to raise his game if he's to win this.

Trained in 26-race hurdles career by Milton Harris, best when coming from off the pace to land the Silver Trophy at Chepstow (2m3f, heavy) last month; ran creditably at Plumpton latest but needs to hit a new high on this first attempt beyond 2m6f.
