Form & Verdict

Ex-French maiden; had to settle for second when warm favourite for run-of-the-mill C&D novice on British debut in October and managed only fourth of seven on subsequent handicap debut at Ayr (2m, good to soft); needs last month's wind op to enable some improvement.

Progressive 6yo who built upon promising seasonal/chase debut when making all for comfortable success at Kelso (2m1f, heavy) last month; 10lb higher in a much deeper race today but should be fine on the faster ground and needs to be taken very seriously.

Built upon encouraging seasonal debut when rallying well for narrow win at Huntingdon (2m, good) last month and now 2-7 over hurdles; only 2lb higher here and the forecast slower ground won't be a problem; likely contender.

Started season with two clear wins at about 2m (good to soft and good) but the spell was broken when pulled up at Kelso since; hard to feel positive after that and soft ground likely to be more of a hindrance than a help.

Won twice last season and has continued to improve this term under Luke Scott, making it 2-2 for the campaign (2m, good to soft/good) with a commanding victory at Taunton in February; he's up 7lb for last time and in a higher grade this afternoon, but may well have more left in the tank.

Usually ridden by Luke Scott; last season went well apart from final start and he was straight back in the groove when easily taking a four-runner handicap at Doncaster (2m) in late December on reappearance; 5lb higher today and faces more opposition but he needs plenty of respect.

Form & Verdict

Started off in handicaps with two wins (one over C&D) in autumn 2020; not seen again until Wetherby last month, where he ran well to a point and wasn't given a hard time once beaten; player if that recent outing has brought him on and his old ability remains.

Needs to produce more than he's managed this season on his first three chase starts, but Musselburgh last time was a sizeable step in the right direction and he could continue to get better over fences; won here twice over hurdles and he's well treated on his form in that sphere; not ruled out.

Won Irish point earlier in career but his four rules wins have come over hurdles and although he had a stiff task on chase debut at Carlisle he showed no enthusiasm when pulled up early at Kelso in November (first-time cheekpieces, discarded now); risky.

Well beaten over C&D (soft) last month but he failed to settle and ran fairly well for quite a long way on that first outing since December 2020; could improve for the run and he's now 10lb lower than when runner-up over C&D (soft) on his penultimate start; one to consider.

Fairly useful Flat-racer who was placed twice in novice company over hurdles this autumn (2m, good); below that form when well-held fourth on recent handicap debut at Market Rasen (2m, soft) but ought to be better suited by the forecast quicker ground here.

Not short of experience but on the flip side, struggling to get the job done; that said, has claims in such a modest contest on the pick of his form and if the first-time cheekpieces can bring about some improvement, he should go well.
