Form & Verdict

Justified favouritism in four-runner handicap at Kelso (3m, heavy) in January; found much greater stamina test and rise in class and the weights beyond in when tried over 3m7f in valuable handicap at Musselburgh last time; this looks more suitable; solid each-way claims.

Should be vulnerable at these weights but at least he comes here on the back of a solid effort in defeat in a 3m2f heavy-ground handicap at Kelso; mostly consistent last season as well.

Scored over 2m7f on heavy ground here in January and was close/clear second on good ground over that trip here in May; made low-key reappearance here (2m5f) last month but might have needed that outing and will be better suited by today's longer trip; shortlisted.

Inconsistent during last season's first chasing campaign but he posted a win at Ayr (2m4f, heavy) in January and was a very close third there (2m4f, good to soft) on last month's reappearance; remains lightly raced and is not ruled out in a first-time tongue-tie.

Stayed on gamely to score at Kelso (3m2f, soft; first-time tongue-tie) in November but was below that form the following month (albeit on heavy ground) and has become difficult to predict; younger rivals appeal more.

Returned to hurdling for last two starts and it paid off last time when he was always front rank to win seven-runner race at Kelso (3m2f, soft; acts on heavy); tongue tied for the first time that day, so maybe he's turned a corner; back up 3lb but his form of previous seasons (up to last December) was significantly better.

11yo who was well beaten on his comeback at Carlisle last month but he left last season's reappearance behind to go very close at Kelso (3m2f, heavy) next time, and he's on a competitive mark; blinkers are replaced by cheekpieces (ran well in them earlier in career); not discounted.

Form & Verdict

Registered his first win over fences at the fourth attempt when getting up close home over 2m5f here (soft) last month; still has plenty to learn about this game but is young enough to improve and fitting of a visor may sharpen up his jumping; stayed 3m over hurdles.

Returned to form with front-running win at Ayr (3m, soft) in December and is now 3-9 over fences; should be fine on this right-handed track but latest 7lb rise demands more from him and he may not be allowed an uncontested lead this time.

Ended long losing run with an easy win here (3m1f, soft) a fortnight ago; on that evidence his claims shouldn't be dismissed off today's 8lb higher mark, but this 11yo is in a tougher race and is unproven at the trip.

10yo who isn't as good as he was, but he's on a reduced mark and the form of his third of six at Sedgefield (3m3f, soft) last month reads well; there's slightly less emphasis on stamina here, which could help.
