Form & Verdict

8yo with a record of 4-14 over fences; got back in the groove with his clearcut win at Plumpton (3m1f, soft) in March but he's not easy to predict and has been laboured in his last two runs; drops back in trip off a workable mark but he comes with risks attached.

Won regional Nationals over 3m4f/3m5f at Fakenham, Sedgefield and Fontwell, the last two in small fields in the mud last autumn; never better than on last two starts when placed in the Sussex National at Plumpton and the 4m1f Eider (third to Anglers Crag) at Newcastle, but to win this requires a fair bit better still.

Form & Verdict

Sole win from ten starts was in a bumper in 2021 but he showed clear promise over hurdles and made a solid start over fences when a keeping-on second at Plumpton (2m3f, good) 17 days ago; takes a big step back up in trip but he's a brother to a 3m chase winner and is respected for in-form yard.

Finished runner-up in both starts in handicap chases at Plumpton (2m4f, good; 0-120) and Newton Abbot (3m2f, good; 0-125) a year ago; in good form in points this year (32112) and looks the one to beat.

Form & Verdict

Dual hurdle winner who recorded his third chase win when making all under Isabel Williams in a Class 3 event at Chepstow (2m7f, good to soft) last month; up 4lb but that was a convincing success over a clear second and he's a big player again.

Now 9b lower than for his Chepstow win (2m7f, good to soft) last April but he's been pulled up here (2m5f) and at Plumpton (3m1f) in last two runs; cheekpieces return on this drop back in grade but he needs a major revival back in trip; stablemate of Lelant.

Has reached the frame several times since October, including when a fair fourth at Wincanton (3m1f, good to soft) last time; well treated on his best chase form but he's now 1-16 in this sphere and that win was in December 2020; others look stronger.

Runner-up off 7lb higher in Southern National at Fontwell (3m3f, good to soft; first-time blinkers) in November but not firing on all cylinders since; weakened into well-held fourth here (3m2f, good) on latest outing in May; needs to turn a corner; versatile ground-wise.

Form & Verdict

Recorded his fourth chase win when scoring off 5lb higher at Stratford (3m3f, good) last May but he's been generally disappointing since and was well-held sixth at Kempton on his recent return from a break; now goes back up in trip but has bit to prove and he needs to get back near best.

Back to the mark of his near-3m4f Stratford handicap chase win of May 2022; below par last autumn (markedly so latest), but proven defier of absences of over 100 days and a sound surface would be appreciated.

Not seen since three below-par runs in the autumn but has often gone well when fresh before and is now back on same mark as when gaining clearcut win at Stratford (3m3f, good) at start of this season; will be suited by today's drying ground; worth a second look.
