In good form since hood added to a tongue-tie and kept finding when making all for his second C&D win 19 days ago (good; earlier win on heavy); up further 3lb but can pull out a bit more yet.

Defied a 2lb lower mark last summer (2m4f, good; fine on softer) and returns to this discipline after two defeats over fences, the latest a respectable effort (beaten 10l); probably in fair form and entitled to run well.

Still progressing quietly, good effort in quite competitive Newbury handicap two starts ago (2m, soft) before chasing home an up-and-coming rival at Chepstow; stays this trip and plenty to like.

Has won three of his last four hurdles, latterly edging home in the new cheekpieces at Ascot (2m3f, good to soft) after Joe Anderson had lost his whip (still a fine ride; always ideally positioned up with the pace); mark continues to rise (up another 5lb) but he's not easily knocked.

Wins in 2023 came in Class 4 events at Uttoxeter and Sedgefield (both 2m4f, good to soft) and the rise in class seemed to find him out when he was only eighth in the Lanzarote at Kempton last time; needs first-time cheekpieces to spark a career-best effort.

Solid record in Class 4 this term, winning at Sedgefield (2m4f, good to soft) most recently; 5lb claimer Joe Anderson (won on him last June) returns, in bid to offset 5lb rise; 4-12 over hurdles; upped sharply in grade but arrives in top form; shortlisted.

Form & Verdict

Winner of two of his last four starts, doing well to overhaul the principals after getting quite badly hampered before the last here last month (2m1f, soft); up just 2lb and the return to this trip can suit; solid chance.

Latest of three hurdle wins came off 7lb higher at Ascot last March (2m5f, good; has won on heavy) but the winter didn't go to plan and he didn't repeat last month's partial revival when pulled up at Kempton 16 days ago; this is a lower grade but now goes in first-time headgear.

2-5 at Ascot; mostly disappointing in his nine runs this year, including twice at this track, and his best run in that period came when runner-up over 3m2f in May; wore cheekpieces on last four starts; 12lb higher this time last year but a revival is needed.

Both novice hurdle wins at 2m on good to soft; yet to win a handicap but two good runs in them of late, going close over 2m at Southwell but finding 3m just beyond her at Ludlow in March; competitive on those runs but didn't flourish at Chepstow on latest.

Two hurdle wins (both 2m, soft and good to soft) last season; sent chasing this season but that plan quickly aborted after two non-completions; she's been much more competitive back hurdling, second at Southwell (2m, good) before finding 3m just stretching her at Ludlow 17 days ago; not ruled out back down in trip.

Can make the running; won two novice hurdles last term and, after two early departures over fences, she went down by a neck in five-runner handicap at Southwell in December latest when back over hurdles; could have more to offer but those three most notable results were all over 2m, so this trip requires some guesswork; 7lb claimer enlisted.
