Form & Verdict

Won course bumper on rules debut in November 2021 and ran to fair level when making the frame three times over hurdles in early part of last year (2m-2m5f); unlucky to be brought down on seasonal/handicap debut in November but ran in snatches and was below par when fourth in C&D maiden in December; needs to travel more sweetly in first-time cheekpieces today.

Form & Verdict

Caused 50-1 surprise on bumper debut in 2021 and has made the frame on all three subsequent hurdle starts, most recently when close second on seasonal debut at Hereford (2m5f, soft) 12 days ago; will be right in the thick of things if in similar form here.

0-3 in points and 0-7 under rules, but has finished runner-up in a Newbury handicap and two maiden hurdles (including last time at Hereford); looks the percentage call on balance of his form and, although unraced on heavy, he handles soft fine.

Shaped with significant promise before last-flight mishap on hurdle debut at Ayr (2m4f, soft) in November, but his fifth there (2m5f, good to soft) the following month was probably a backward step and he has a bit to find with the principals here.

Took a while to get the hang of hurdling (beaten at 11-10 three times in succession) but rattled off a quick double in May and was impressive at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good) on the second occasion; an 8lb rise since looks fair enough and he returns from six months off with his stable on fire.

Form & Verdict

Irish point winner who was placed over 2m4f on first two hurdling starts (good to soft/soft); flopped badly when upped to 3m for handicap debut in December but had wind surgery soon afterwards and has the form to feature here if back on song.

Reportedly unsuited by the ground (soft, heavy in places) when pulled-up favourite at Wetheby last month; needs to put that run behind him but looked in excellent nick when scoring at Wincanton (2m4f, soft) two starts ago and could still have more to offer over fences.
