Asserted on run-in for clearcut success at Musselburgh (1m7f, good to soft) in February and ran well in defeat on both subsequent appearances; may yet have a bigger run in him and features prominently in calculations.

Consistent and not had all that much racing for an 8yo; won well at Musselburgh on New Year's Day (1m7f, soft) and just never gave his running back there three weeks ago in Mack The Man's race; hard to discount.

Consistent 8yo who wasn't overly pressed to win over slightly shorter here when last seen on New Year's Day (soft); 6lb rise sees him on a career-high mark but he's fine when fresh.

Started off for John Dixon with wide-margin win in small-field Carlisle novice in March 2022 but struggled to make an impact in handicaps last season (four runs) and needs help from the first-time cheekpieces here.

Dual hurdle winner in spring 2022, latterly on good ground over C&D; made pleasing return from 228-day absence when close second on the Flat ten days ago and his current mark in this sphere is workable; respected.

Form & Verdict

Safely held on all three starts this year and comes here with a bit to prove but is now 5lb lower than when second at Musselburgh (1m7f, soft) in December and will be dangerous if perked up by a change of headgear.

Five-time bumper/hurdle winner, who got off the mark on the Flat when forging clear at Southwell (2m, Tapeta; 13-8 favourite) last month; a 4lb rise for that smooth win looks fair and he's a big player again on this drop back in trip.

Three bumper wins and two over hurdles within the first seven starts of his career, but 0-19 under both codes since; third in three outings at Southwell (1m4f-2m) since the blinkers went on and another place may be his best hope.

Dual hurdle winner at Sedgefield last season (2m1f, good to soft/good) and reverts to this code after scoring on the Flat on Friday (first-time tongue-tie); evidently in very good nick; must be considered.

Free-goer who is 2-7 over hurdles, the latter win gained in first-time hood on handicap debut at Sedgefield (2m1f, good) in February; both subsequent runs (one on soft ground) were perfectly respectable but it seems that others in this line-up have more potential.

Form & Verdict

Ran well when third in first-time cheekpieces here (2m4f, good to soft) three weeks ago and has claims if judged on that performance but today's shorter trip may not be ideal and he's not one to rely upon heavily; fell at the first over fences here yesterday.

Form & Verdict

Belatedly came good over hurdles at 13th attempt, in Tramore maiden (2m, soft) last month; has more on her plate in this handicap but looks well treated on form shown towards end of last year, and her stable is alway respected at this track.
