Form & Verdict

Turned things around after wind surgery with his smooth win off a tumbling mark at Ffos Las (2m4f, soft; tongue-tie added) three weeks ago; back up 10lb in the weights but he cruised to victory last time and is a major player again if he can back that up.

Form & Verdict

Well treated on his best hurdles form and conditions should be fine but last win was almost two years ago and he was pulled up on his chase/stable debut at Stratford ten days ago; comes with risks attached back in this sphere and others are more solid; tongue-tie worn last time is removed.

Dual winner at Stratford last summer (2m6f/3m2f), latterly off today's mark; drops in grade after respectable fourth at Wincanton (3m, good to soft) on Boxing Day and will be suited by the forecast good ground here; high on the list.

Form & Verdict

Both his wins have been gained at this track (2m2f, good); his last success was 12 months ago but he's been placed five times since then including when runner-up at Worcester (2m4f) two weeks ago; 1lb lower here and he should go well again.

Form & Verdict

Has overall record of 1-24 but his win came off this mark at Ffos Las (2m6f, good) last June and he went very close back there (2m4f, good) on Saturday; that was after a break and this is quite a quick turnaround but he should be in the thick of things again.

Touched off at Ffos Las in May (winner has won twice since) and of obvious interest on that effort; not quite so good next two and didn't seem to take to chasing at Newton Abbot latest; yard in rampant form on Monday.

Off the mark when dead-heating with a stable companion over C&D (good) last September; fell in her final two runs last year but she still looks on a workable mark and has possibilities if she can out in a clear round back from 188 days off.

Has a patchy record and he didn't fire at Wincanton (100-30 favourite) in March but that was after a good second at Fontwell (2m5f, good) and he was successful in a novice event last spring; has claims if he can get back near best after a break and he's in the mix.
