Regressive form this season; drops back to an easier level but doesn't have the ideal scenario; this front-runner has gained all chase wins in much smaller fields.

Ex-Irish 8yo who is lightly raced and returned to form in a reapplied tongue-tie (retained) when runner-up at Fontwell (2m2f, soft) on Boxing Day on his second start for this yard; cheekpieces are added here and he may be able to post a first win.

Point winner; 0-7 under rules in Ireland for Mouse Morris and Henry De Bromhead, close second in beginners' chase at Downpatrick (2m3f, soft) last autumn but unplaced when odds-on over hurdles there in the summer; changed hands for £10,500 in September; needs to get back on track for new yard.

Form & Verdict

Just five career starts; won a maiden hurdle on heavy in January; well beaten on last month's chasing debut and clearly needs to benefit from that but it's far too early to write him off.

Form & Verdict

Maiden hurdle winner (soft) for Philip Hobbs in January; ran well for a long way on chasing/stable debut at Worcester two months ago; this shorter trip might help and he's not dismissed, especially if a tongue-strap has a positive effect.

Won a soft-ground maiden here in 2022 and a handicap at Hereford (2m3f, good; under Joe Anderson) last November; heavy ground may have been too much here on penultimate start but he also needs to perform better than at Market Rasen last time.

Form & Verdict

Bumper/hurdle winner; fair second at Wetherby on chasing debut but the winner of that race had previously finished behind Rose Sea Has over C&D; only one modest effort in his career to date, so likely to run well.

Became disappointing over fences during the winter and was just a respectable fourth when back over hurdles at Ludlow (2m, good to soft) this month but is unexposed over today's trip and might be boosted by the addition of cheekpieces.

Good second on seasonal/chase debut in November but both subsequent runs over fences were very disappointing and he now reverts to hurdling; given a good chance by the handicapper in this sphere but needs to get career back on track.

Form & Verdict

Kempton winner when last seen 20 months ago and three of his other four chasing wins have been gained here; all of those have been at 2m4f+, so this trip, combined with the absence, may make him vulnerable.
