Form & Verdict

Unexposed 5yo who displayed significant improvement when sixth in heavy-ground novice just after Christmas; managed only seventh of eight when favourite for last month's handicap debut and moves up in grade today but probably still has potential.

Form & Verdict

Irish raider who is best known as a fairly useful Flat-racer; ran respectably on stable/chase debut in January but fell last month and now switches back to hurdling; will pose a threat if somewhere near the form he showed when winning in this sphere at Fairyhouse (2m, yielding) last spring; sports first-time cheekpieces.

J: Shane Fitzgerald

T: Cian Michael Collins

Best known as a six-time winner on the Flat; overall hurdles form not very convincing; will need to pick up more chasing experience judged on first two attempts.

Much better known as a six-time winner on the Flat; hurdles form not very convincing; only four runners in a weak event in which he was second at Warwick four weeks ago.

Form & Verdict

Four-time hurdle winner, most recently at Newbury (2m, good to soft) in December; not quite in same form when fifth over 2m4f at Ffos Las the following month but is probably still on a workable mark.

J: James Martin

T: Andrew J Martin

Always ridden these days by claimer James Martin; opened chasing account at second attempt, finishing with a flourish at Chepstow (2m, heavy) in January; two backward steps since, on heavy ground again over 2m3f and 3m; needs a return to her best but she did run creditably on good ground last spring.

T: Andrew J Martin

Four-time hurdle winner; opened chasing account at second attempt, finishing with a flourish from unlikely position to lead close home at Chepstow (2m, heavy) in January; no impact when third of five at same track (2m3f) last month but she made some late gains and looks worth another try at this staying trip; not ruled out.

Form & Verdict

Just a respectable third in tactical race at Fontwell (2m3f, soft) this month but today's forecast better ground ought to be in his favour and he's now back on the same mark as when second in good-quality 4yo handicap at Chepstow (2m, good) in the autumn; might be the answer.

Modest maiden on the Flat when trained in Ireland but he has since developed into a fair hurdler and returns to this discipline at a realistic level; one to take seriously.
