Form & Verdict

Talented maiden on the Flat who ran well in defeat on first two hurdle starts (both 2m1f, good); has leading form claims for Irish stable that won this in 2019 and 2020; effective on testing ground on the Flat.

Form & Verdict

Second on hurdle debut at Exeter (2m, good to soft) in November then won in these cheekpieces at Newcastle (2m, good to soft) six days later; the form is nothing special and he's now penalised, but he's open to further improvement for a trainer who does well with juvenile hurdlers; unraced on soft.

Form & Verdict

Posted a very useful Flat RPR of 97 when winning at Windsor (1m2f, good) in September; could do well over jumps, for a trainer who is an impressive 8-15 (53%) with his hurdlers this season; key player provided he handles the conditions (unproven on slow ground).

Ran six times on the Flat in France and was placed over 1m4f; changed hands for 28,000euros in July and there's every chance he'll make a hurdler, but others have more compelling claims today.

Consistent 5yo who is fine over 2m and 2m4f; heavy ground perhaps not ideal last time when first tried in a tongue-tie and could run well if back on song, for all that he might now be too high in the weights.

Form & Verdict

Suited by the switch of codes when winning in first-time cheekpieces (retained since) on hurdle debut at Leicester (1m7f, good to firm) in November; it was a Listed fillies' race (2m1f, good to soft) in which she was well beaten last time but she may again be vulnerable here, against males.

Won against own age-group on hurdling debut at Leicester (1m7f, good to firm; first-time cheekpieces) last November but has been out of form on the Flat for new stable this season and switches back to this code with quite a bit to prove, including her stamina for 2m4f on slow ground.

Poor Flat form in 2022 and he was tailed off on his sole hurdle start; sold out of Alan King's yard for £2,000 in August; needs to be a vastly different proposition in a first-time tongue-tie on stable debut.

Made debut in October and displayed ability across his three Flat starts (1m3f/1m4f, AW/good to soft); however, he needs to improve for the switch of disciplines if he's to make a winning hurdle debut.
