Form & Verdict

1m AW and dual 2m hurdle winner; may just have needed the run after a break on his chase debut at Kempton (2m2f, good) last month; should be capable of stepping up on that.

Form & Verdict

0-6 over hurdles but posted good effort when placed off 1lb higher over C&D (good to soft) on seasonal debut in November and looked stretched by 2m5f when slightly below that form last month; has a significant role to play if he copes with today's ground.

0-11 over hurdles but has become well handicapped on some of his 2022-23 season form and returned from break with fairly encouraging run last month (first start after wind op); dangerous to ignore.

Form & Verdict

Runner-up in three of his four bumpers (good-soft) but has made a disappointing start to his hurdling career; soundly beaten after racing too freely on recent handicap debut (2m4f, good to soft; first-time cheekpieces); drops back in trip here.

Fair Flat-racer; ran well for a long way when back over hurdles at Leicester (1m7f, good to soft) last month but was safely held in the end and is not sure to be suited by the slower ground here.

Consistent form in defeat on Flat this April-June (1-18 overall in that sphere); 0-11 over hurdles, well treated on some of her placed form in the 2021-22 campaign but below form on latest four attempts, including on latest outing; steps up from 2m with stamina in major doubt.

Yet to win on turf but has been placed over this trip at Nottingham and Wetherby (both good to firm) this month; suspicion she'll be vulnerable to some of the 3yos in this line-up, though.

Form & Verdict

Won good-ground bumper in 2021 and ran to fairly useful level when second in AW novice on the Flat later that year; showed only minor promise on first two hurdling starts and was beaten out of sight in November, after a layoff, but remains unexposed and is worth a glance in the betting; untested on ground slower than good to soft.
