Form & Verdict

Dual 2m5f hurdle winner on good ground last year; pulled up in gruelling edition of Lanzarote Hurdle on handicap debut in January but bounced back with very close second in Class 2 novice at Musselburgh (3m, good to soft) last month and is a very obvious contender here.

J: Harry Cobden

Useful novice chaser who posted solid placed efforts the last twice (good/soft), including over C&D, and the form has received strong boosts since; attractively weighted off an unaltered mark and he was successful over hurdles on this card 12 months ago; commands major respect.

Form & Verdict

Looked useful in bumpers for two different stables and made pretty good start to hurdling career when second (no match for winner) to useful rival at Worcester (2m4f, soft) in October; dropped out tamely at Lingfield in November and absent since but remains one to be interested in.

Won a 3m handicap hurdle here last April off 8lb lower; had some luck on his side when scraping home at Fontwell (2m3f, heavy) on second chase start and has been beaten fair and square in two subsequent runs (2m3f/2m5f); perhaps on a high mark but returning to further is well worth a shot.

Sole hurdle win at 3m; element of good fortune when scraping home at Fontwell (2m3f, heavy) on second chase start and a Plumpton fifth next time looks better form now; probably not done with off his current mark.

Pulled up after racing too freely on rules debut in November but last month's fifth of ten over C&D (good to soft) was a lot more promising; needs to take another big step forward today, though; tongue-tie fitted.

Stopped quickly and was pulled up in her first two chases but, following a break, jumped well and won comfortably by over 8l at Plumpton (2m3f, good) on Sunday; today's race is more competitive but she escapes a penalty and needs to be taken very seriously.

Twice a winner over hurdles at Fontwell (2m1f; soft/good), in handicap and novice company; has stopped quickly and pulled up in two chases, though lost a shoe on both occasions and reportedly made a noise last time; could go well back from a break should the wheels stay on.

Changed hands for six-figure sum after last year's winning Irish point debut and made promising hurdle debut when fifth of 14 at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) in October; not seen again since and needs to improve here, but has significant potential.
