Form & Verdict

Ex-French gelding who is 3-7 in Britain and 2-3 since joining this yard, his latest success when beating a subsequent winner over C&D (good) last month; 4lb higher, but may still have more to offer for the yard and soft ground no problem; high on list.

J: Lorcan Murtagh

T: Harry Fry

Failed to beat a rival on his chase debut here last month but he's a four-time hurdle winner who went close here (2m4f, good to soft) on his return in November; looks interesting on that form but he's untried beyond 2m4f and this is a new challenge back over hurdles; mixed messages.

Form & Verdict

Won a juvenile maiden hurdle by 10l over C&D (good to soft, first-time hood) on Boxing Day but hasn't built on it since, not always looking the most natural of hurdlers; return here may help on handicap debut, but risks are attached.

Form & Verdict

Well held in one start on the AW and back over hurdles at Sandown (2m, good to soft) so far this year, but his record over C&D reads 1413; last two defeats over hurdles have come in better races and worth a second look back here; has won on soft.

Last hurdles win came over C&D (good) in December 2022, having also won the same contest the previous year; nowhere near that level in recent times, finishing a remote fourth of five at Plumpton (2m4f; first time tongue-tie) 39 days ago; plenty to prove.

Made all against her own sex here (2m, heavy) in February, but hasn't been in the same form since (four runs) and was beaten 27l at Chepstow (2m3f, soft) last time; edging back down the weights but she needs to bounce back near her best.

Improved plenty when switching to handicaps at the end of 2021, winning well over 2m on a soft surface at Lingfield and Sandown; off 14 months before pulling up at Exeter (2m2f, good to soft) last month, but he had previously looked so promising and would be a danger to all if rediscovering his form.
