Form & Verdict

Returned last November from a huge absence but well beaten over hurdles since; tried in cheekpieces last time, not today; no standout even on his old Flat form, albeit with that including a C&D win in 2020.

Returned from absence with some very disappointing hurdle runs last season but won on Flat in April and has held his form pretty well under both codes since; not yet proven over 2m4f but ran well for a long way when fourth at Uttoxeter (2m, heavy) three weeks ago and enters calculations.

Form & Verdict

Won on Polytrack last February (here) and May; good second in September (1m4f) and ran respectably on both starts this year, so the handicapper is giving him a chance, but below form here in October on only go at 1m6f.

Won twice on Polytrack (1m4f/1m6f) in 2021 and was having his third start back from a 15-month absence when second of eight here (1m6f) nine days ago; tackles this far for the first time but respected off the same mark if his stamina holds out.

Form & Verdict

0-5 on AW during autumn 2021 and early 2022, peak effort when second at Lingfield (1m2f) but she needs to step up on that form; failed to do so on turf debut last July on sole run since; others have more pressing claims.

Front-running C&D wins in two of her last three starts, readily accounting for her rivals eight days ago; suspicion she'll need more to defy a penalty in a race featuring other recent winners.

Inconsistent of late; however, opened her account in C&D handicap (soft; made all to beat Aighear) on most recent turf start and enters calculations returned to this scenario.

Form & Verdict

Not proven on AW after three attempts; peak turf efforts for Tim Easterby give him a major shout but something seemed amiss in both runs over hurdles this February for Syd Hosie (who retains ownership); hooded first time.

Infrequent winner who was bought for 3,000gns in October; pulled hard and reportedly hung badly left-handed when tailed off on stable debut last month (1m4f, soft); best watched.

Form & Verdict

Still a maiden (11 races) but has come down the weights and took a step back in the right direction when second at Wolverhampton (second go at 1m4f) last time, posting his best handicap effort; considered after that and takes another step up in trip.
