Form & Verdict

Limited maiden in Ireland when beaten nine times under rules and he's since gone 0-6 in British points; principally of interest due to the yard he's moved to and needs a market check on chase debut.

Couldn't win a maiden point last year but subsequently ran up a four-timer in summer handicap chases for Fergal O'Brien (2m5f-3m, good); likely sharper for recent return and will appreciate any dryout.

Much-improved 7yo who is 4-4 over fences since returned to racing under rules this season, the latest win gained fairly comfortably at Worcester (2m7f, good) 12 days ago; upped significantly in grade today but it's hard to tell when his rapid progress will level off.

Form & Verdict

Strong in the market when ready winner of handicap hurdle debut at Southwell (3m, good to soft) and ran okay to be fourth off this 7lb higher mark on his switch to fences at Uttoxeter (2.5l behind Ron Burgundy); that's perhaps as good as he is but should be involved.

Tailed-off favourite at Cartmel early last month but that may have come too soon, seven days after she completed a Hexham double (both 2m7f, good; one of them under Paddy Barlow); lightly raced under rules and this soft-ground point winner could have more to offer.

Won a 2m4f handicap hurdle for Alex Hales last June; runner-up over fences since (3m) but she refused to race on her fairly recent stable debut when back over hurdles; still 5lb higher than for her win and she comes with risks attached.

Not had a lot of racing and the cheekpieces appeared to perk him up when a decent third at Uttoxeter (3m, good to soft); won't be away if he can repeat that effort.
