Form & Verdict

Won a hunter chase here (3m2f, soft) in February 2021 and landed another at Bangor (3m, soft) last February; fair second of four in a recent point-to-point (3m, good) and he's a leading contender now back under rules.

Dual 1m4f winner on the continent; has yet to transfer that ability to hurdles but shaped with some promise last time at Newbury (heavy) and has to be of interest in a handicap of this nature; ran okay when once tried in cheekpieces on the Flat and tongue-tie also added here.

His sole win came in a bumper back in 2018 and based on more recent evidence he would be a shock winner here.

Fit from points when fair third of five in 2m2f Kelso hunter chase a week ago; this longer trip should suit, so he's no forlorn hope.

Form & Verdict

Highly talented in his prime and, while he's not the force of old, he was second in a hunter chase at Perth (3m, good to soft) last May before going one better at Kelso (3m2f, good to firm); returned from some time off with a fair run in a point-to-point ten days ago and he's one to consider.

Added to his good tally in points with two wins this spring; close third to Shanroe Street at Perth, albeit beaten favourite, on the return to rules and now gets a 5lb pull with that rival; comfortably won this contest (on fast ground) 12 months ago and warrants respect back here.

Form & Verdict

Very useful hurdler/chaser up to summer 2021 for Nigel Twiston-Davies; however, he's been lightly raced since and was well beaten in a hunter chase at Wetherby (3m, good to soft) last time; needs to raise his game.

Very useful hurdler/chaser when with Nigel Twiston-Davies (regularly posted RPRs in the 140s) but he's gone 0-4 in points since returning to that scene (now 0-6 overall) and last month's Ampton run wasn't overly encouraging.

Promising chaser in 2018 and he won four point-to-points in the first third of last year; however, he's failed to shine in points the last twice and has something to prove now back under rules.

Had a good spell in points in the early part of 2022; however, his point/rules form this year is far from compelling and perhaps age is catching up with this 12yo; the weakest contender on recent evidence.
