Form & Verdict

Overcame bad mistake two out when winning at Kempton (2m2f, good; first-time cheekpieces) in February and had far more on his plate when last of five in Grade 2 novice there two weeks later; may not have reached his ceiling just yet and should go well.

Campaigned mostly on good/good to soft; contrasting performances since switched back to hurdles from fences, winning major handicap at Kempton (2m5f) under Tristan Durrell then well held at Ascot; the penultimate piece of form gives him a chance.

J: Harry Skelton

T: Dan Skelton

Had been competing over fences prior to springing a 33-1 surprise in the Lanzarote at Kempton (2m5f, good to soft) in January, travelling well for a long way and sealing the issue with a good jump at the last; up 7lb but that's solid form and he's likely to be in the thick of things again.

Successful over hurdles and fences at Kempton; however, hasn't raced in this sphere since a heavy defeat over C&D in March 2022; watching brief is advised.

Form & Verdict

Point winner who has taken well to handicap chasing, scoring twice in small fields at Leicester (both 2m); easy winner on second occasion, typically jumping soundly; up 7lb in a stronger race but must be considered.

Fair hurdler/chaser who was 2-5 over fences last season; not at best at Ayr last month but will be suited by today's trip/ground and has pretty good chance at the weights on this hurdling return; cheekpieces added.

Two small-field wins at Leicester (2m, good to firm/good) from his first three chase starts and again ran well when second of four at Market Rasen (2m1f, good to soft) 12 days ago; needs another step forward here but that's possible, especially if good ground prevails; tongue-tie goes on.

Going great guns in 2m handicap chases, winning two of first three starts (on good to firm/good); failed to find much in one 2m4f handicap but, as an Irish point winner, he should stay this far over fences; ran well when runner-up at Market Rasen yesterday.

Form & Verdict

Bold-jumping front-runner; made all on chase/handicap debut at Wincanton (1m7f, good; runner-up successful twice since) in November; folded tamely at Kempton four months later; questions to answer after that last run but could still be unexposed and he's not dismissed lightly.

Free-goer who is still to follow up 2022's Wincanton 1m7f wins (hurdle/chase); irregular heartbeat and soft ground excuse last two runs, but nowhere to hide here with trip, ground and mark all perfect.

J: Jonathan Burke

T: Tom George

Headstrong sort who is inconsistent and was pulled up last time; however, he was found to have an irregular heartbeat and was uncharacteristically held-up, which may not have suited; has dropped to a dangerous mark and he was a fair third over C&D last November; not written off.

Form & Verdict

Stepped up markedly on hurdle form when making winning debut over fences at Chepstow (2m, good) in October, and he faced an impossible task in the Arkle Trophy at Cheltenham five months later; retains potential and he's of far more interest now dropped back down in grade.

Ballybreeze

10st 8lb

J: Robert Dunne

T: Samuel Drinkwater

Left his hurdling form behind when winning comfortably on chase debut at Chepstow (2m, good) last October; unsurprisingly outclassed in the Arkle here but was in the process of running another personal best when coming down late on at Market Rasen (2m1f, good to soft); had wind surgery and might be better treated than a few in here.
