Form & Verdict

Out of form since returning from one-year absence this season (four runs); needs to stage a revival but combination of drying ground and first-time cheekpieces offers some hope on that score.

Made all in first-time cheekpieces at Fontwell (2m3f, good to soft) for Evan Williams in February but was quickly back in the doldrums next time; sold for £6,5000 in May; no cheekpieces for today's stable debut; versatile regarding ground but not an easy horse to predict.

Not the easiest to predict (to put it mildly) but had one of his good days when runner-up over 2m7f here last month (under Gearoid Harney); whether he'll repeat it is another matter and stamina for this far isn't entirely copperbottomed.

Low-mileage 8yo who bids to complete a hat-trick after making virtually all here (2m2f, good to soft) eight days ago; has 7lb penalty offset by Beau Morgan's useful claim today and the longer trip won't be a problem; good chance.

Form & Verdict

Belatedly off the mark over fences at Ffos Las (2m5f, soft) in November and today's 4lb higher mark ought to be manageable but he was safely held (albeit on heavy ground) when back at Ffos Las last month and his overall profile is not persuasive.

Won two in a row (good/heavy) prior to finishing second in this last year (good to soft); he's 5lb lower than 12 months ago and is one to watch in the betting, but this 11yo has been tailed off/pulled up on his two runs this season and a major turnaround is required.

Back-to-back wins at Ffos Las (3m, good) and Taunton (2m7f, heavy) last March and only 3lb higher than for the latest of those; however, he's an 11yo now and his reappearance was underwhelming even if that was over 2m4f.

Well beaten on both chasing starts for Paul Webber last spring but ran big race when clear second over hurdles at Plumpton (2m4f, soft) five weeks ago and will be a tough nut to crack if able to transfer that form to fences.
