Form & Verdict

Didn't show much on first three hurdle starts and pulled up on handicap debut at Hereford (2m5f, soft) in December last time; however, he showed promise last March in his sole Irish maiden point (3m, good to yielding) and is not written off now back on better ground in a first-time tongue-tie.

Was going nowhere when pulled up on chase debut last time; didn't head into that in much form and the ground was good when he won at Taunton in March; tongue-tie sported then and since is now left off.

No match for a progressive Skelton-trained winner at Exeter (2m7f, good to soft) last month but he beat the rest and is also effective on good ground; could be thereabouts.

Form & Verdict

No threat in his three novice hurdles (2m-2m4f) and he's not obviously well treated off his opening mark; however, he's in good hands and goes up in trip in first-time cheekpieces for his handicap debut; interesting to see if he attracts market support.

Form & Verdict

Second of 17 on handicap debut at Huntingdon (2m4f, good to soft) in January and occupied the same position at Sedgefield (2m4f, good) last Thursday, when clear with the winner; there's every chance he'll stay this far and he's running before a 4lb rise kicks in; likely player.

Defied a 2lb lower mark last summer (2m4f, good; fine on softer) and returns to this discipline after two defeats over fences, the latest a respectable effort (beaten 10l); probably in fair form and entitled to run well.

Form & Verdict

Having dropped down the weights he returned to form when third at Wincanton (2m5f, good) 12 days ago; not ruled out but this 11-race maiden has a patchy profile and is untested at today's trip.

Sole win from ten starts was in a bumper in 2021 but he showed clear promise over hurdles and made a solid start over fences when a keeping-on second at Plumpton (2m3f, good) 17 days ago; takes a big step back up in trip but he's a brother to a 3m chase winner and is respected for in-form yard.

Placed in October on first two hurdle starts (2m3f/2m6f, good) and heavy going may have been too much when soundly beaten on handicap debut at Exeter (2m7f); retains potential now back on better ground.
