Form & Verdict

Second in a hurdle and two chases towards end of last year, and gave another pretty good account when fourth at Hereford (2m5f, soft) this month; today's drop back in trip won't be a problem and he's arguably the one with least to prove.

Form & Verdict

14-race maiden; made low-key seasonal/stable debut in November and not seen again since but is well handicapped on some of last season's placed form for Jack Barber and will be dangerous here if back on song.

J: Rex Dingle

T: Anthony Honeyball

Everything fell into place for Plumpton win (2m1f, good) in February but she's not the easiest to win with and her finishing effort was weak there last time (2m3f); the blinkers tried then are soon discarded and the likelihood of a strong pace up front should benefit her; being 12lb out of the handicap makes life difficult.

Seemed to have quite a bit left in the tank when opening account under confident Rex Dingle ride at Plumpton (2m1f, good) last month, her third start for Anthony Honeyball; 9lb higher here but should cope if the ground softens; must be considered in current form.

Form & Verdict

Struggled on recent handicap hurdle debut and needs to bounce back quickly from that but his fourth in a Fontwell novice hurdle (2m1f, good to soft) on Boxing Day was quite promising and his close second in an Irish point last February bodes well for his prospects over fences.

Form & Verdict

Winning pointer; showed very little in three novice hurdles last summer but, following a wind op, travelled smoothly for a long way before weakening into fourth on recent chase/handicap debut at Newcastle (2m4f, soft); effectively on same mark here but the drop back in trip looks the right move and he still has potential.
