Two novice wins but beaten favourite on handicap debut in June; all hurdle form over 2m but won an Irish point and the handicap defeat suggested he may need a step up in trip; live claims if that's the case.

T: Donald McCain

Irish point winner; had little to beat at Kelso last month (2m, good to firm) but his earlier hurdle win has some merit (two subsequent winners behind); opening mark looks reasonable and not hard to envisage him adding another success.

Form & Verdict

Made the frame twice in bumpers; has not transferred that form to hurdles but took a step back in the right direction in 2m5f handicap here most recently, while shaping as if this drop back in trip will suit.

Reasonably consistent, but remains a maiden (0-15); spent force in first-time cheekpieces (retained) when badly hampered and unseating her rider at the final flight at Newcastle (2m1f, heavy) last time; has work to do with This Is Bob and Raffles Wonder.

Remains a maiden after 14 starts but she's posted fair performances when third over hurdles/fences the last twice (2m1f/1m7f, soft) and might not be far away in first-time cheekpieces.

Form & Verdict

Modest fourth in 1m selling handicap at Redcar (second run for new yard) this month, taking Flat record to 0-18; best Irish form reads well in this context but she seems to have regressed; hurdles debut.

Regressive filly who has been safely held in some recent classified races on turf and is now 0-24; has often worn blinkers or cheekpieces; visor given a whirl tonight.

Form & Verdict

Dual Flat winner and showed minor hurdling promise for previous stable; has achieved little for current yard, including in this race 12 months ago (well-held fifth); something to prove on return from 256-day layoff.

Placed on the Flat as a 2yo (for Alan King) but has shown nothing like that ability since, including in two attempts over hurdles (latest on debut for new yard); regressive profile and has been absent since January.
