Form & Verdict

Not his first disappointment over fences when tailed off at Lingfield in November but returned to form back over hurdles at Ludlow when responding well for pressure to nearly deny an idling winner (2m5f, good to soft; stays further); has never been the easiest to predict, mind.

Quirky customer who often races lazily; well suited by a slog in the mud and now 11lb lower than when making all at Exeter (2m7f, heavy) 14 months ago but it's hard to predict the extent to which he'll warm to the task.

The winner of three handicaps at about 3m but he remains 5lb higher than for the last of those and it wasn't the best of runs at Chepstow last time; unraced on heavy but has won on soft.

Returned to form with front-running win in small field at Fontwell (3m2f, soft) on Boxing Day; however, his recent profile has been patchy and he was pulled up at Plumpton (3m1f, soft) last month; this is competitive and a return to form is needed with a first-time visor replacing blinkers.

Form & Verdict

Bumper winner who has made a good start over hurdles and, with his third in a 2m3f maiden hurdle at Chepstow working out well, it was no surprise to see him justify favouritism on his handicap debut at Wetherby (3m, soft); strong in the finish to be well on top when it mattered and that form also has some substance to it; up 5lb.

Good-ground bumper winner who improved for the step up to 3m when winning on handicap debut at Wetherby (soft) in December; heavy ground was perhaps too much when third of six at Exeter subsequently and this unexposed 7yo retains potential.

Made all to win by 10l in his final bumper (2m, good) last spring; held in second of four when odds-on for hurdling debut in August but he found improvement when a promising third in big-field maiden at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) last month; now steps up to 3m but has quite a lot of stamina in his striking pedigree and is an interesting contender on handicap debut.

Form & Verdict

Respectable bumper form on soft or heavy ground and has performed to a similar level in her two runs over hurdles on good (2m3f/2m6f); this initial mark doesn't look an obvious gift but Jack Martin's 8lb claim helps.

Made the frame on first two hurdling starts (2m3f/2m6f; both on good ground in October) but safely held in first two handicaps, latterly when seventh of nine over C&D (good) this month; needs a boost from the first-time blinkers today.

Probably needed his comeback outing as he's since run a nice race to finish third in a higher grade than this at Ffos Las (2m4f, soft); down 1lb and he was very effective on heavy ground during his novice days; much respected.

Hasn't taken to fences on his last four starts (after wind surgery) so no surprise that he's back over hurdles and this mark is manageable on the best of his form, albeit at shorter trips; there are enough doubts on a few counts to turn elsewhere.

Form & Verdict

Better known for his chasing exploits but he is a dual winner over hurdles and finished second off a 3lb higher mark over C&D last April; however, he lacks a recent run and there are doubts about him on very testing ground.
