Form & Verdict

Steady progress in three runs over hurdles, winning at Uttoxeter and running even better when 7l second to an all-the-way winner at Ayr (again 2m, good to soft); retains potential now handicapping and Lewis Stones' 5lb claim will be a help; may take another step forward.

Easy win on handicap debut at Ffos Las (2m, soft) last April and returned to form when second of four at Lingfield (2m3f, good to soft) in November; firmly put in his place on that latest start but the winner is a highly progressive sort who was on the middle leg of a hat-trick; appealing claims.

Form & Verdict

Could be unexposed after just five runs but he hasn't been placed in any of them, racing freely and fading when fifth of six on handicap debut over C&D two months ago; needs improvement but that's certainly possible.

Won on heavy at Newton Abbot in September (2m1f) and two good runs followed, including a second over C&D; reportedly bled when a disappointing favourite last time; chance if back on song.

Form & Verdict

Opened his account, albeit sharing the spoils, in novice handicap at Exeter (2m, good) in March, but only third of five from revised mark over C&D 18 days ago and he'll need more than that here.

Just 1-15 over hurdles but is versatile regarding ground and gave a good account when placed off today's mark at Sedgefield (2m1f, soft) last month; could have a say.

J: Tom Marquand

T: Bernard Llewellyn

Won over hurdles at Exeter (2m2f, dead-heat) in March and he has plenty of form on the Flat including over 1m6f here last spring; hard to rule out a good run back from a break but he's 1-24 under both codes and others are more persuasive.

Form & Verdict

Transformed since wearing blinkers, completing hat-trick of Plumpton wins in comfortable fashion four weeks ago; up another 11lb but there's no telling when the improvement will end and he commands major respect.

Form & Verdict

Off the mark at Worcester (2m, soft) in October and has continued in good heart, third at Doncaster (wore cheekpieces) three weeks ago; should be thereabouts once again, although one or two others have more potential.

Yet to match his hurdle form in three chase runs, the best of them coming when wearing cheekpieces (absent today) in January; dangerous mark but needs to brush up his jumping.
