Form & Verdict

Better than ever this season following wind surgery, winning at Bangor (3m, good) in September and over this C&D (good to soft) a fortnight ago, despite being outpaced on each occasion; also effective on soft ground; has to be respected given her current good heart.

J: Derek Fox

T: Lucinda Russell

Finished with a flourish to win lower-grade version of this race a year ago and followed up in C&D match race a fortnight later; back down to a similar mark now but posed no threat behind Half Shot here in November, after a break, and has been off for another 65 days since.

J: Derek Fox

Dual C&D winner in two small-field events last season; acts on good or slower; absent since may and has had wind surgery; goes well when fresh and should be competitive from this mark.

OR: 113

Form & Verdict

Remains a maiden after 11 starts but he's been a good second on his last three outings (2m4f-3m, soft) and was beaten just a short head at Wetherby last time despite not jumping well; the first-time cheekpieces could help him find greater fluency and there's every chance he'll go one better here if conditions suit (unproven on good/good to soft).

12st 2lb

J: Henry Brooke

T: Oliver Greenall & Josh Guerriero

Made it 0-20 when below-par fourth at Uttoxeter a fortnight ago (2m4f, heavy; Nine Nine Nine third); however, he's finished second no fewer than 11 times, including over this C&D (heavy) last month, and he can be thereabouts if bouncing back from last time.

J: Henry Brooke

T: Oliver Greenall & Josh Guerriero

Second six times in a row last season (2m3f-3m1f) and has found one too good again on his last two outings, taking his record to 0-19; no reason why he won't figure again but needs to prove he can get the job done.
