Form & Verdict

Runner-up at Cheltenham on hurdling debut; well beaten in Grade 2 novice there next time but he bounced back by winning 14-runner novice at Hereford (2m, soft) in December, travelling much the best and probably green in front before he held on by half a length; this opening mark should prove manageable at some point soon, perhaps today.

Promising novice who doubled his hurdling tally on handicap debut at Kempton (2m, soft) in January; weakened tamely after briefly looking dangerous in valuable event at Kelso (2m, good to soft) last month but is back in calmer waters here and still has potential.

Good-ground bumper winner who scored at Hereford (2m, soft) in December on his third hurdle start and followed up on handicap debut at Kempton (2m, soft); today's assignment is much tougher but he travelled really well last time and could have plenty more left in the tank.

Seeking a hat-trick having won Hereford novice event and Kempton handicap (driven out) the last twice, both over 2m on soft going; bumper winner on good ground; gets into this better race off a low weight; generally progressive; interesting contender.

Form & Verdict

Won by 3l in a maiden at Fakenham (2m, good) in October on second hurdle start; 20-1 when apparently showing much better form in Listed event at Haydock (1m7f, soft) in November, finishing fifth of six but he got seriously involved and the form has been backed up by the first and third; handicapped accordingly but early days and he could have potential.

Seems to have developed a tendency to race lazily but is well handicapped on some of his placed form in stronger races than this last year and would probably have finished second in first-time blinkers at Plumpton (2m4f, soft) in February but for a last-flight fall; cheekpieces back on today.

Won a novice here on soft ground last March en route to completing a hat-trick in two good-ground handicaps; mark suffered as a result but he looked dangerous before tiring into third on his Kempton comeback (2m, soft) and he's a 6yo with more to offer; shortlisted.

5-26 over hurdles, with latest win in November 2021 at Ludlow (2m5f, good); not nearly so good since but, following wind surgery and with tongue tied first time, he made a step back in the right direction when 40-1 fourth of 14 there (2m5f) last month; needs to build on that too, in a major way.

5-12 at Wetherby, where his close second in October is his best result this season (3lb lower today); plenty of his best form is on soft and he's also won here, so he has to be considered given this is not a large field.
