Form & Verdict

After a wind op he showed improvement in a first-time tongue-tie (retained since) to win on handicap/chase debut at Newcastle (2m, good) in February; very disappointing at Kelso (2m1f, good to soft) last month so it's hard to be confident, but he's not written off in view of his penultimate run.

Form & Verdict

Runner-up twice in a row over C&D (heavy/good to soft) and he was 10l ahead over C&D (good) last month when falling at the final fence; hit with a 7lb rise for that and he was well beaten at Carlisle a fortnight ago, but he made a bad mistake three out and this unexposed 6yo retains potential.

J: Ben Bromley

Has set or equalled peak RPRs over both hurdles and fences in 2m4f Perth contests latterly, albeit his C&D chase second off this mark in July (good) featured jumping errors and a refusal to settle; weighted to reverse Cartmel form with A Different Kind, though 0-16 record is offputting.

J: Daryl Jacob

0-5 over hurdles and 0-15 overall but recent efforts over fences have been perfectly respectable, and he matched his best RPR (124) when second here (2m4f, good) last month; won't mind if there's rain about and has good chance at the weights on this return to hurdling.

Form & Verdict

Disappointing on his last two starts last November but a break may have done him good and he impressed on chase debut at Kempton (2m2f, good) in October; in top hands and could bounce back with a big run.

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

Very lightly 6yo who improved upon his hurdle form to win on last month's handicap/chase debut at Newcastle (2m, heavy); tackles different ground today and he beat only three rivals last time, but it looked a solid little race and he's in excellent hands to continue to progress.

Won on chase debut at Market Rasen (2m1f, good to soft) last October and, after his third at Catterick (1m7f, good to soft), he's posted easy wins the last twice (1m7f/2m1f, good/good to soft); this is tougher than Market Rasen 12 days ago but he's ahead of the handicapper under a 7lb penalty.

Won chase/seasonal debut over C&D (good to soft) in October; close third next time and made a big leap forward when winning by 16l in a seven-runner novice handicap at Catterick (1m7f, good) two months ago; kept away from soft ground this term; lightly raced 7yo who's up 8lb but that may underestimate him.
