Form & Verdict

Returned from break with respectable second of four over C&D (good to soft) last month and is another 2lb lower today, but has become unreliable and today's slower ground is probably not in his favour.

Won over hurdles here (2m4f, soft) in January but was pulled up in three consecutive runs this spring and he struggled again when returned to the Flat at Ayr (1m7f, good to firm) last month; lots to prove.

Form & Verdict

Came good over hurdles at Hexham (2m, good to soft) last spring and doubled his tally over that C&D (soft) in November; needs to prove he's fully effective on this very different track but could quite plausibly have untapped potential over the longer trip.

Started off for Nick Alexander with two disappointing runs last winter (hurdle/chase) but travelled well for a long way when back in action here (3m, good to soft; first-time tongue-tie) in November and has possibilities if that run has brought him on.

Form & Verdict

Put some disappointing chase runs behind her when close second over hurdles at Kelso (2m2f, good) in September; not seen again since but remains well handicapped after a 2lb rise and should be fine on today's slower ground.

Looked in excellent nick when winning easily by 12l at Ayr (2m5f, good) last month and is now 3-18 over hurdles; 8lb higher here but is very well suited by this C&D and must be considered.

Ex-Irish 5yo who was respectable fourth in stronger race than this for Gavin Cromwell at Bangor (2m3f, soft) in November; well beaten in a beginners' chase since but no surprise if he features on today's stable debut.

Form & Verdict

Flopped badly in his two handicaps last spring but fared considerably better when fourth of 12 at Doncaster (2m3f, good; several flight omitted) in November, despite racing a bit too freely; not sure to be suited by today's slower ground but still has potential.
