Form & Verdict

Caused 80-1 shock on debut at Bangor (2m, good to soft) in October but hasn't really kicked on from that performance; just a respectable fourth when favourite for Chepstow handicap (2m3f, good to soft) last month; needs to find extra.

Loves the mud and is unbeaten in two runs since joining Dan Skelton, grinding out a workmanlike success under Charlie Todd at Uttoxeter (2m7f; Floueur well held in fifth; Seefin, Classic Concorde and Lord Snootie pulled up) four weeks ago; may not have finished improving and must be seriously considered despite a 9lb rise in the weights.

Off the mark with clearcut success at Taunton (2m3f, good to soft) in March and also ran well when second at Huntingdon (2m3f, soft) soon afterwards; below that form at Fontwell last month, where a mid-race jumping error seemed to knock him off kilter, but he remains of interest.

Improved for cheekpieces in the middle of 2023, and it was with a good deal of authority that he won at Worcester (2m4f, good to soft) in September; swerved right and ran out before halfway at Wincanton last Sunday after a seven-month absence; if that was a one-off he could still have untapped potential and his 7lb claimer rode a winner for the yard earlier in the week.

Has form figures of 211 since the cheekpieces were added and it was with a good deal of authority he won a valuable 2m4f handicap at Worcester (good to soft) in September; 8lb higher now but Thomasina Eyston's claim takes care of most of that; goes well fresh and has obvious claims.

Seemingly aided by first-time cheekpieces when very close second in Southwell handicap (2m4f, good) in June then doubled his hurdling tally in C&D novice the following month; probably still on a workable mark; shortlisted.

Irish point winner; still unexposed after only four starts under rules and ran well to a point when fourth of six over C&D (good to soft) on last month's handicap debut but was beaten over 17l in the end and needs to improve.

Chasing has not gone to plan this season and he now reverts to hurdling after a 137-day break; still has low mileage and current mark ought to be workable but others have more pressing claims.

Form & Verdict

Returned from layoff with three good efforts (2m1f-2m2f) in early part of last season and is quite well handicapped on those but, after another break, last month's Stratford run was no better than satisfactory; needs that recent outing to have done her good; untested beyond about 2m2f.

In the frame all six starts this season, most notably when winning at Wetherby (2m3f, good to soft) in February; drops in grade after very respectable fourth in 0-135 event there (2m, soft) in March and should be fine over today's trip; leading contender.

Form & Verdict

Dual bumper winner; has sometimes lacked fluency and looked hesitant over hurdles but managed two small-field wins last season, the latter in 3m handicap here (good to firm; first-time cheekpieces) in October; not seen since rather tame finishing effort over C&D in November; others preferred.

Form & Verdict

3-12 over hurdles, the latest win gained at Bangor (2m7f, good) last summer; may not have been ideally suited by the soft ground when well-held third on latest outing in November; has possibilities here if fully tuned up after 168-day break.
