Form & Verdict

Won 2m4f novice hurdle in late 2021 but seen only three times since; didn't find much when favourite for chase debut at Ludlow 18 days ago (2m4f, good to soft; Cartonne second) but should be capable of better.

Lightly raced 8yo; showed plenty of resolution to win handicap at Exeter (2m3f, heavy) on New Year's Day, but put firmly in his place in a warm race at Cheltenham five weeks ago; probably on a good mark but this sort of trip is something new.

Form & Verdict

Maiden hurdler who has improved since chasing, winning first two attempts from the front at Musselburgh (both at 2m4f, good to soft) before a chase newcomer caught him on the hop at Ludlow 18 days ago; probably needs more than that rather laboured second.

Form & Verdict

C&D winner in November but ran poorly over this trip next time and has been back at 2m in cheekpieces since, recording best effort when winning at Southwell 21 days ago (good to soft); drying ground will suit but needs to replicate that form now back over further.

Good second at Exeter (2m3f, good to soft) on seasonal debut in October; not in the same form again since but slow ground was put forward as an excuse for last month's disappointing effort, and he's now too well handicapped to rule out.

Form & Verdict

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.
