Form & Verdict

Big step back in right direction when fourth of 13 at Wetherby (3m, good to soft) on Boxing Day in a first-time tongue-tie on his second stable start; something to find with runner-up Beat The Edge but he could be suited by the stiffer test of stamina on today's deeper ground; one to consider.

Fair third over hurdles last December after a very long absence but he's failed to complete since on his first four chase starts (stable debut last time); a first-time tongue-tie needs to make a big difference.

Form & Verdict

Looked set to win in good style at Wetherby (3m, good to soft) on Boxing Day only to sprawl on landing after two out and be overhauled close home; hit with a 7lb rise but this lightly raced 6yo is unexposed in the blinkers and could still be well treated; effective on soft ground over hurdles.

Hard to win with having been successful in just one of his 22 rules starts; however, he often runs well, as when third at Catterick (1m7f, soft) on Tuesday, and should be fine at this trip; might not be far away.

Lightly raced 8yo who is one to watch in the betting on his second start back from a long absence, but he was tailed off over hurdles in November on his comeback run and others have far more compelling claims.

Has struggled to get competitive on his first seven starts but there's some potential in his pedigree and perhaps this switch to fences will help unlock it; represents an in-form yard and no surprise to see a good run.

Landed a gamble at Ayr (2m4f, soft) in November on his second chase start and followed up there (2m4f, good to soft) three weeks ago; hasn't had much to spare on either occasion and he's climbing the weights, but he was placed in a 3m point and could have even more to offer now upped in trip.

11yo who is very lightly raced for his age; won a point in 2018 (3m, soft to heavy) and he returned from another absence with a win at Fakenham (3m, good) two months ago; given his profile his follow-up claims aren't overly strong, but he's not discounted.
