Form & Verdict

Useful novice who relished the step up to 2m4f (on soft ground) when scoring at Leicester in February and was far from disgraced when fifth of 16 in the highly competitive EBF Final at Sandown last month; this is considerably weaker and he's the one to beat.

Consistent 6yo who was better than ever when winning at Haydock (3m, heavy) in February and ran another cracker when third to Monmiral in the Pertemps Final at Cheltenham (3m, soft; favourite; rallied) the following month; may still have more to offer and is high on the list once more.

2-5 as a novice hurdler last season and his form up went another notch when winning handicaps at Chepstow (extended 2m3f; easily) and Haydock (extended 3m) in his two starts this season; all hurdle races have been on soft or heavy ground; another 6lb higher today but it looked as if he had more in the tank last time and has plenty more to offer as a stayer; big chance.

Form & Verdict

Irish point winner; going the right way under rules, digging deep to win Doncaster novice hurdle (2m3f, good) in January; likely to continue progressing and should go well again if handling this softer ground.

Not seen to best effect over 3m on soft ground three weeks ago but responded well to first-time cheekpieces when second at Doncaster (2m3f, good) two starts ago, and that piece of form gives him claims here.

Sole win came over hurdles at this track (2m3f) one year ago; switched to chasing and handicapping over about 3m for his three starts this term, running well for minor honours in two of them; chance on that and he drops back in trip in first-time headgear.

Form & Verdict

Joined Olly Murphy after winning an Irish point by 29l, and he made an immediate impact under rules with a smooth maiden hurdle win at Market Rasen (2m4f, soft; 4-5) three weeks ago; hard to pin down but he's clearly promising and commands plenty of respect.

Won on rules/hurdle debut here (2m4f, soft) in March and, although beaten under a penalty the next twice (2m4f, soft), those were still respectable runs; this very lightly raced point winner (3m, good to yielding) is open to improvement now over fences on his handicap debut; firmly in calculations.

Form & Verdict

Campaigned mainly as a chaser, below par in military races at Sandown on his last two starts; won a novice hurdle at Southwell (3m, good to firm) in the autumn but he'll need to improve on that form to defy a penalty and today's soft ground is a concern.
