Form & Verdict

Record of 1-9 over fences but his win was off only 1lb lower at Hexham (1m7f, good to soft) last spring and he wasn't beaten far at Wetherby last month after another break; still unexposed at this sort of trip and has claims if he can build on that last run.

Proved a reliable sort last season when a two-time chase winner but he's failed to complete (pulled up/fell) in his two runs this term; has some questions to answer and he needs to get back on track.

Form & Verdict

Won four times in Ireland, including twice over fences, but he's been well held in small-field handicaps (2m5f/2m) in both runs for new yard this spring; lost a shoe and was reported to have finished lame last time but he didn't jump with much fluency in that race and others are preferred.

Form & Verdict

Two chase wins at Catterick (2m3f, good to soft) last term; some creditable efforts over fences and hurdles this season but she's finished down the field at Musselburgh in last two runs; has bit to prove back in this sphere and she's still 6lb higher than for last win.

Form & Verdict

Dual chase winner when trained in Ireland and he made his breakthrough for current yard when staying on well to beat a clear second at Market Rasen (2m5f, soft; cheekpieces reapplied) last month; goes back up in grade but a 4lb rise for that success looks fair and he's respected.

Won three times last year and back on the scoresheet over C&D (soft) last Saturday, following wind surgery; had just a short head to spare in that three-runner race and this is much more competitive, but it was certainly a positive performance and he's gone back up just 1lb; not ruled out.

Has record of 4-10 over fences and all of those wins have come at this track (2m3f/2m5f); returns from 11 months off but he scored off this mark on his penultimate run last season and needs watching in market; his chase wins have come on good/good to soft but he won on testing ground over hurdles.
