Form & Verdict

Ex-Irish gelding who's got the winning habit on Tapeta of late, landing four of his last six; incurs a penalty for last Tuesday's easy Newcastle win but he's liable to go up by at least 5lb for that and is the one to beat again.

Winless since coming over from France and has been beaten at 5-1 or shorter on nine occasions; again gave his running for tonight's 5lb claimer when second in a messy affair here yesterday and holds claims if turned out again.

Fair on the Flat but yet to make an impact over hurdles; brushed aside fairly easily after leading on final circuit at Plumpton (2m, good; refitted blinkers) this month; will need to show more tenacity here.

Three French Flat wins and he's 0-30 in Britain, though placed on many occasions; shaped quite well on hurdling debut but twice tailed off since; risky but opening mark of 83 would look lenient if showing his best.

Proven winner down the years, mainly over hurdles and always in the spring/summer; satisfactory debut for his new yard last time but was allowed a soft lead over 2m2f and isn't very consistent now.

Form & Verdict

Quite well-related filly who was picked up for 26,000gns from Mark Johnston in the summer; takes yet another step up in trip, on her handicap debut after a break, for a yard without a Flat winner in over five years; the market will guide.

Perhaps not straightforward but, having been detached after two out, she stormed home for a 1l fourth of 15 at Cheltenham (2m4f, good) last month; has gone close over 2m7f in the past and she's capable of playing a leading role if everything clicks.

Began hurdling career with consecutive wins in February/March (1m7f/2m) then showed better form going close in Cheltenham Listed race (2m4f; fluffed the last) and Market Rasen handicap (2m7f); back from summer break with a creditable run on heavy two months ago, which she may well build on.

Won four on the spin two winters ago (one over C&D) but dry since, including over hurdles in recent times; has been cut some slack by the handicapper since last running on the Flat but needs more back from a break.

7yo who was well held at Salisbury (1m6f) last month but that was after a creditable third on Tapeta at Wolverhampton (2m) and he won at Lingfield in June; still looks feasibly treated on that form and he's not ruled out back up in trip.

First turf success at Lingfield (2m, good to firm) in June but, not for the first time, he was well beaten on good to soft next time and his latest third was on AW; the state of the ground is clearly important.

4 yo Colt

OR: 69

Form & Verdict

Soft ground not ideal over hurdles lately and he returns to the Flat on a handy mark in first-time cheekpieces; boasts a decent record round here too, so everything is in place for a better showing under Kevin Stott (5-23 for the yard).

Habitual slow starter who arrives in form and has a C&D win to his name; is capable if getting away better but that's unlikely and there's not much room for manoeuvre off this mark.

Likes it here and is 2lb lower than when second over C&D early in the year; he's lost his way over hurdles latterly, though, and has done most racing in lesser company.
