Form & Verdict

Had been looking a shade disappointing but seems to require a thorough test of stamina and won with a bit in hand at Plumpton last month (3m1f, made all); 7lb rise negated by Ned Fox's claim and, even though he may have opposition up front, makes plenty of appeal after just six career starts.

J: Charlie Deutsch

T: Venetia Williams

Usually gives his running and eked out a bit more improvement when a neck second of ten at Lingfield (2m7f, soft) in January; no obvious reason why he won't perform creditably again but he's creeping up the weights and this is undoubtedly the strongest opposition he's encountered.

Has won three of his last seven starts and now looks high in the weights after appearing to give his running but only placed in 3m1f handicaps the last twice; even with Ned Fox's welcome claim, this probably demands his best form yet.

Form & Verdict

Dour staying chaser who has performed respectably on his latest two starts; won off 15lb higher the last time he raced over hurdles (in December 2020); hard to think he'll be capable of that now but likely to be plugging away to the bitter end.

Seemingly back in good form at Warwick (3m2f, good) last month, where he battled on well to press Nickelsonthedime in the closing stages, but was last of five when favourite at Fontwell 11 days ago and it's hard to know what to expect from him here.

Thorough stayer who was placed in two chases and a hurdle towards end of last season; probably on a good mark over hurdles but needs to bounce back quickly from lacklustre run over fences a fortnight ago; fully effective on good ground; unproven on good to firm.

Form & Verdict

Much improved in a tongue-strap even if winning run came to an end at Chepstow last month; still ran well there and another 5lb rise might not stop him if he stays 3m2f (unraced beyond an extended 2m5f).

Chancing his arm at 3m2f didn't come off last month but previously in fine form this year, winning first four starts at about 2m5f (heavy and good to soft) then running at least as well in defeat at Chepstow in March; should go well again if latest run hasn't taken the sting out of him.

All three hurdle wins at Taunton (won a bumper here), the latest when cruising home over 3m (heavy) last week; that wasn't much of a contest and he's 6lb higher but is clearly in fine fettle.

Made bad mistakes at Exeter in autumn on each of his first two chase starts, but showed signs of promise and it wasn't his fault he ran out mid-race at Chepstow last month (short of room); on a competitive mark on last season's hurdle form and can go well if minimising the blunders.

A teenager now and no longer the force of old but was placed three consecutive times before clinging on to win by a short head at Ffos Las (3m, heavy) in February; pulled nicely clear of the others with a next-time-out winner there, so a 4lb rise is arguably lenient.

Popped up at Exeter two years ago (after 18 months off) so absence of more than a year no great concern; both wins on quicker ground and also has to race from 10lb out of the handicap; aids have been worn separately.

Form & Verdict

By no means the easiest (takes a lot of urging) but can prove hard to overtake, as he showed at Uttoxeter (both wins there) a week ago; happiest if able to dominate but 4lb rise against in-form rivals demands more.
