Ended last season with three hurdle wins; even better again in defeat this campaign with three near misses and off a tough mark it makes sense to claim 5lb through Angus Cheleda; solid claims with no trip/ground issues.

Two wins here; ended last season with three hurdle wins; best efforts on latest two outings when beaten a neck at Sandown (2m7f, heavy) and second again at Plumpton (3m1f, good to soft); up another 3lb but a leading player.

Ended last season with three hurdle wins (2m4f-3m) and posted another career-best performance when close second at Sandown (2m7f, heavy) last month; latest 4lb rise does not look excessive and he might still be improving; good chance.

Form & Verdict

Good overall strike-rate but has been all-or-nothing (form figures PP1P17) this term and needs to bounce back from a comprehensive defeat last time; still on career-high mark.

A fairly useful 2m4f hurdles winner but he has yet to match that form in four runs on the Flat, coming in a never-dangerous fifth on his handicap debut at Wolverhampton (2m) 17 days ago; he may still do better.

Form & Verdict

Bit disappointing this season, having been largely progressive (at about 2m) previously; in excellent hands and may bounce back at some stage but has something to prove back up in distance.

J: Lorcan Williams

T: Paul Nicholls

Made several jumping errors when well-held third on chasing debut in 2022 and was quickly reverted to hurdling; useful in that sphere when on song and will be suited by today's trip/ground but his tendency to race too freely remains a concern, and he's a risky option on this second attempt over fences.

Rather disappointing last term, which was followed by wind surgery and he also wore a tongue-tie first time when below form five weeks ago on reappearance; more questions to answer going beyond an extended 2m4f for the first time but he has edged down the weights.

Has struggled to find his best since returning from nearly two years away but last month's fourth at Wincanton, when not quite seeing out 2m5f+, was a definite step in the right direction; could well be involved.

Always towards rear when tried in cheekpieces two starts ago and was left behind when pace lifted in home straight here (2m4f; no headgear) last month; can't be supported with much confidence today but is now 12lb lower than when very respectable fourth at Taunton (2m3f, soft) in January.

Form dipped at Newbury last time but consistent otherwise this season and could well bounce back; however, weighted to the hilt as his November/December wins came off lower marks.
