Form & Verdict

Very good hurdler/chaser back in the day but has pulled up in three handicap chases since his return from a year off; mark continues to tumble but this 11yo is hard to recommend at the minute.

Formerly smart chaser who came back from the doldrums with a Perth hurdles win (3m2f, good to soft) in April; pulled up in the other five of his last six starts, including on his reappearance at Bangor last month; hard to be confident but a possible player if he is allowed to dominate.

Form & Verdict

Doubled his career tally when staying on best in a 3m1f handicap at Carlisle (good to soft) 19 days ago and has only been upped 3lb for that; this rise in class would be a greater concern but he can run well.

Form & Verdict

Promising novice hurdler before a lengthy spell on the sidelines; jumping held him back when sent over fences but he ran a pleasing race back hurdling at Newcastle (2m4f, heavy; first-time cheekpieces) and returning to a staying trip looks beneficial; likely to go well if taking to the visor.

Form & Verdict

Low-mileage 8yo who comes here on a four-timer after stretching 17l clear in a four-runner 3m handicap at Doncaster last month (good); the handicapper didn't go overboard with a 6lb rise and should be competitive once more; regularly partnered by Conor Rabbitt.
