Running well in the first half of the autumn and he's well treated on that form, but well beaten on his last three starts and a revival is required in first-time cheekpieces.

Won in first-time cheekpieces (retained since) at Sedgefield (2m3f, good to soft) and bumped into a much-improved winner when a well-beaten second at Haydock (2m4f, good to soft) last time; has shown promise on soft/heavy ground; second in this last year and could be in the mix.

Form & Verdict

Won a maiden hurdle here (2m1f, soft) and he was a good third here (2m5f, soft) two weeks ago on his second chase start, despite a bad mistake mid-race; could have a big say, especially if minimising the blunders.

Form & Verdict

Has run really well when second in these blinkers the last twice (3m/3m1f, good to soft/heavy), most recently at Catterick when well clear with one who has followed up; has shaped as though he'll be effective at this shorter trip and this 6yo is a strong contender.

Good-ground point winner who made all on his chase debut over C&D (soft) in November and was runner-up at Catterick (3m1f, soft) on New Year's Day, before winning over this C&D (soft) a fortnight ago; this unexposed 8yo could have more to offer and is firmly in calculations up 5lb for last time.

Won over 2m1f here in November and he's fine at this trip; also on the scoresheet on the Flat last month and not ruled out but he's inconsistent and was a 9l fifth to Tom Creen over C&D a fortnight ago; needs more today.

Form & Verdict

12yo who has a regressive profile and is without a win since April 2021; however, soft ground may not have been ideal at Southwell last time, and he showed spark before fading over 2m7f at Newcastle on his penultimate run; his mark continues to fall and he could go well if the ground suits.

11yo who is on a 13-race losing sequence but he ran well in a first-time visor (retained) when fourth to Tom Creen over C&D (soft) a fortnight ago, and he'd have been closer but for a bad mistake at the final fence; better ground today would probably aid his cause and he could be in the mix.
