Form & Verdict

Novice hurdle winner at 2m3f in late 2019; he should be well treated on his best handicap form but he hasn't had much racing in the recent times and has made limited impact in handicaps this winter.

Followed his former trainer Oliver Sherwood to Harry Derham's yard for which he made a winning start over 3m at Musselburgh (soft); didn't win with much in hand but that was his first run for 251 days and a 5lb rise is fair enough.

J: Brendan Powell

Won at Hereford (2m3f, good) in February but that was a weak four-runner race and he's since been a soundly beaten fourth at Southwell (2m4f, good to soft); others have more pressing claims.

Form & Verdict

Right down weights since 2m7f chase win in late 2021 (good to soft); went off the boil soon after and in very ordinary form over hurdles this winter; about-turn not guaranteed for refitted cheekpieces.

Put some poor performances behind him when close second of four at Hereford (2m3f, good; refitted cheekpieces) six weeks ago but the value of that form is open to question (odds-on favourite below par) and it's hard to predict whether he'll warm to the task again in first-time visor.

Becoming very well handicapped now and latest seventh at Ludlow was a small step in the right direction, after a series of very modest efforts; could build on that; may be best when racing prominently.

Form & Verdict

His jumping veers from clumsy to good but is a handy type at this level and this AW winner has won two of his four hurdle starts, having the race sewn up from some way out on handicap debut over C&D last week (good); up just 4lb and has been found another good opportunity.

Clear second when back over hurdles at Uttoxeter (2m, good) in May but a little beneath that form since and 2m4f shouldn't have been an issue last time; others are a bit more intriguing.

Form & Verdict

Bumper/maiden hurdle winner for Gordon Elliott in 2020 but badly lost his way and was pulled up a long way out on debut for this yard at Ffos Las; all to prove with new blinkers/tongue-tie replacing cheekpieces.
