Form & Verdict

Unexposed 6yo; stoutly bred and looks a thorough stayer, best effort when beaten a neck at Haydock (3m, soft; first two well clear) in November; only sixth of 12 when favourite for Kelso handicap (2m6f) five weeks ago but nor was he disgraced and he should not be long in getting off the mark.

7yo who's in his first season chasing; upped in trip and switched to front-running with a first-time visor in the Edinburgh National at Musselburgh 11 weeks ago and he took the field apart, moving 21l clear in the closing stages; that was over an extended 3m7f on good to soft, but he has been placed on soft; up 14lb today but that latest performance could hardly have been more authoritative.

Form & Verdict

Pulled up in attritional Lanzarote Hurdle at Kempton three weeks ago but he'd previously been a steady improver in novices, winning at Kempton and Exeter (both 2m5f, good) and finishing second in Grade 2 Persian War at Chepstow in between; will probably stay 3m; chance if bouncing back.

J: Harry Cobden

T: Paul Nicholls

Useful novice chaser who posted solid placed efforts the last twice (good/soft), including over C&D, and the form has received strong boosts since; attractively weighted off an unaltered mark and he was successful over hurdles on this card 12 months ago; commands major respect.

Form & Verdict

Progressive 5yo with plenty of untapped potential, unbeaten in two runs over hurdles; strong at the finish over 2m4f at Ayr (heavy; wore tongue-strap) five weeks ago and likely to relish this longer trip; something to find on form with several of these but going very much the right way.

Form & Verdict

Point/bumper winner; scored twice over hurdles (2m6f/2m7f) on goodish ground last summer, ridden by Ben Harvey (unable to claim here) on second occasion; ran as if amiss when favourite for 3m novice at Cheltenham in the autumn but he's had a break since and would be a player on his best form; represents last year's winning stable.

Changed hands for £17,000 after easy Irish point win in November and he made a pleasing rules debut when beaten a neck over C&D (soft; 20-1) in January; open to improvement but faces much sterner opposition today.

T: Chris Grant

Irish point winner who is 0-8 under rules; on a competitive mark; would be a player if in the same form as when third at Musselburgh in December (2m7f, good to soft) but needs to better his other three efforts this season; tongue-tie and cheekpieces go on.

Bumper winner; 0-6 over hurdles but he has faced some tough assignments (out of depth in the 2022 Ballymore) and he ran well when third of 14 at Navan (2m4f; stays 3m) two weeks ago; has shown signs of temperament (unruly in preliminaries last time) but he's a leading contender on form.
