Yet to win in 16 runs, but has been placed on ten occasions, including when runner-up in a Plumpton handicap (3m1f, good) on his penultimate start; that form puts him in the picture and he may have done too much too soon at Fakenham last time.

Form & Verdict

Beaten upwards of 42l in three qualifying runs at up to 2m5f (good/good to soft) this year but it's very rare for his top trainer to get one in off such a low opening mark; dangerous to ignore.

T: Paul Nicholls

Beaten upwards of 42l in his first three hurdle runs but he ran well for a long way on his recent handicap debut at Ludlow (3m, good; 17l third); should have more to offer now switched to fences for top yard and he's an interesting contender on this drop back in trip; tongue-tie added.

Beaten upwards of 42l in three qualifying runs at up to 2m5f (good/good to soft) this year but it's very rare for his top trainer to get one in off such a low opening mark; one of three runners from the stable and it'll be very interesting to see how he goes in the betting.

Form & Verdict

Struggled to get competitive in three novice hurdles last season (2m-2m4f), the latest in November; moves up in trip and sports first-time cheekpieces for today's handicap debut; well worth a glance in the betting.

8yo who is an eight-race maiden and has a patchy profile; however, he's shown the odd sign of promise and could improve for last month's return from a break; not ruled out each-way in first-time blinkers.

Maiden; close fourth over hurdles at Worcester (2m4f) last month but not as good at Perth latest; stamina to prove at this trip on chasing debut but possibly worth a market glance.

Form & Verdict

Won a chase off a lowly mark for Gary Moore in 2020 but last season was a struggle and he's very difficult to enthuse over from 5lb out of the weights; cheekpieces the headgear of choice today.
