Form & Verdict

Hurdle winner in France but has proved largely disappointing in Britain; pulled up at Ludlow last month when upped to 3m and, while he's down another 5lb and may hit form at some stage, makes limited appeal.

Seemingly back in good form when third at Plumpton (2m3f, soft) in January and is probably worth another crack at this sort of trip but didn't travel with much zest when well-held fourth at Lingfield last month and is not one to rely upon.

Two course wins in February but a return visit here last month saw him pulled up; needs to leave that behind and, though he has some form on soft, all four career wins have come on good or quicker ground.

J: Sean Bowen

T: Sheila Lewis

Has struggled more often than not this season and he was pulled up at Huntingdon a fortnight ago; however, this two-time course winner was a good third over C&D (soft) two starts ago and could be a contender now back here if the first-time blinkers (replacing cheekpieces) have a positive effect.

Beaten 30l+ in two chases earlier this season but has been making hay since returning to hurdles, winning twice at Wincanton last month; can race off a very tempting mark but she does need to prove herself as a chaser.

Dual 2m5f winner here; she may be 11 but it was just about a career best when strolling home by a clear margin at Taunton (2m3f, soft); on the downside, she's 10lb higher in a much better race now and hasn't previously excelled over 3m.

Form & Verdict

Both wins gained at Huntingdon just over a year ago; not much since until remarkable performance when third at Market Rasen last week, from 33lb out of the handicap; hard to place maximum faith in that but repeat certainly makes him of serious interest.
