Form & Verdict

0-6 over fences but was a cosy winner here over hurdles (2m4f, soft; front pair clear) when 20-1 latest; same mark for this return to chasing (0-6), for which this point winner goes back up in trip; interesting.

6-6 over hurdles/fences for Iain Jardine this season, with most notable success coming from a long way off the pace in Summer Plate at Market Rasen (2m5f, soft); also very well suited by this track and Harry Cobden (aboard the last twice) keeps the ride for today's first start back with Claire O'Connell

Keeping excellent form under the 7lb claimer Conor Rabbitt over 3m at Perth (131) this spring, climbing a further 4lb since making all in a three-runner Class 4 there a fortnight ago; gave a good account (second) here too last spring, so everything looks primed for another positive performance.

C&D winner who has dropped to a tempting mark but he needs to produce more than on his last two starts, most recently a 12l seventh behind a few of these over C&D (good to soft); reapplied cheekpieces replace visor (he's been similarly effective in both forms of headgear in the past).

His last win was was off 1lb higher over C&D in March 2021; lightly raced since but he still retains most of his ability and he caught the eye with his staying-on sixth at Ayr (2m4f, good to soft) last month; wasn't beaten far in that race and he's in the mix back over this more suitable trip.

Just held on to break his chasing duck at Musselburgh (2m4f, good to soft; front pair clear) in March; posted a career-best RPR in defeat at Kelso (2m5f, good) latest; today's step up in trip and possible slower ground are both likely to suit; interesting.
