Form & Verdict

Chasing this season, 4-5 in a four-runner handicap over C&D when off the mark in this sphere last time (runner-up won well on starts either side); pretty consistent this term and wore a tongue-tie on last three outings; firmly in calculations, with serious rain no problem.

Form & Verdict

With new yard this year and back in top form, winning his first three starts for them; no ground or trip worries and it's possible he can bounce back from his fair fourth of seven under 7lb claimer at Newton Abbot three weeks ago when jumping issues played a part.

Lightly raced since her three chase wins in 2021, and was just a respectable third at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) last month; today's quicker ground ought to be in her favour but others appeal more all the same.

Front-runner won four in a row in first half of last year (2m7f-3m, good-heavy) and the first three were at this track; tried 3m5f when pulled up at Warwick on latest start, after four months off, but it's a long time since he ran over a trip this short; connections turn to cheekpieces.

Missed last season; may be best front-running nowadays, as when winning over C&D (good to soft; acts on soft) in December and runner-up in small fields in two of his four completions since; 2m7f may have contributed when below form last time and he should be more potent today.

Can jump right but two of his three wins have come on left-handed tracks and he gave a dashing display from the front at Wetherby recently (2m5f, good; has won on soft) only to get reeled in by an improved one who followed up this week; bold bid likely.

Form & Verdict

Demands a great deal of respect with 7-13 strike-rate over fences, including two wins last summer and another in November when last seen; readiness after the layoff is a stumbling block judged on previous campaigns; not often seen on softer than good but did win once on good to soft in 2021.

Chasing this term, winning small-field handicaps here and at Doncaster (again 2m3f on good) on first two occasions; pulled up trying 2m6f next time and apparently back to form when second of three at Newbury (2m4f) two months later; those easily best three ratings were on good but he did win a maiden hurdle here on soft.
