Form & Verdict

Dual hurdle winner here and it was also at this track he opened his chase account in March (2m1f, good to soft), having jumped well out in front; couldn't defy an 8lb rise when second to Duty Calls on his return visit but perhaps the ground was too soft for him.

Won four times at favourite course Kelso last year (2m1f, good to soft/soft) and is just 2lb above his last winning mark; however, he's been well beaten over this C&D and at Musselburgh the last twice.

Enjoyed productive 2023, winning four 2m1f chases at Kelso (good to soft-soft); will find this easier than latest assignment at Newbury but is away from his happy hunting ground again today and remains on a career-high mark.

Runner-up in this 12 months ago off 9lb higher but restricted to only four runs in the meantime and the last three haven't been great; best watched for now.

J: Ryan Mania

T: Sandy Thomson

Ended last year with below-par C&D run (bled from the nose) and was beaten when falling over 2m4f here on New Year's Day; needs to get back in the groove but has very good chasing strike-rate (7-25) and his current mark is workable.

Form & Verdict

Only five runs back he was runner-up in a Listed chase at Wetherby (2m3f, good to soft) off 11lb higher but that was October 2021 and last season was underwhelming; he's still too well handicapped to ignore and has undergone a wind op; could easily revive.

Won at Musselburgh in November (2m, good to soft) but well beaten over 2m4f after a short break on same track last time; has won on soft, but best efforts on better ground.

Form & Verdict

Saw it out stronger than Bollingerandkrug over C&D in March (soft; 5lb lower) and it was back over hurdles when well held at Carlisle; if back to the form he showed here then he's likely to go well.

Form & Verdict

Had a very productive run of form in small-field chases last year, pushing the smart Tommy's Oscar to a head off 3lb higher in the latest of those; returned from 183 days away in a warm big-field handicap hurdle at the Grand National meeting and can be forgiven that.

Reverted to hurdles (from fences) in the winter and won two in a row at Doncaster (2m/2m3f, good to soft/good), racing prominently under Charlie Maggs in both; up in the weights and has a tougher assignment here, but he's clearly in fine form and could go well once more.
