Form & Verdict

Delivered on earlier promise when winning easily at Hereford (2m3f, good to soft) last month; not in same form when beaten odds-on favourite at Worcester (2m4f, good) three weeks ago and untested on ground any quicker than that but still a leading contender here.

T: Charlie Longsdon

Three hurdle wins this season, the latest gained in Class 2 handicap at Worcester (2m4f, good) in June; below form on latest outing (reportedly unsuited by soft ground) and has to concede weight to all his rivals here but can make his presence felt.

Form & Verdict

Looks exposed after eight hurdle runs but has been pretty consistent at a fair level, and looked the most likely winner before last-flight fall at Stratford (2m6f, good) ten days ago; cheekpieces didn't appear to make much difference when tried once last year but they're given another whirl today; unraced on ground quicker than good; ought to play another major role.

Threatened off higher marks as a hurdler but she remains a maiden and has been tailed off in two runs since returning from a break; looks worth taking on now sent over fences for the first time.

Still awaiting her first win; has threatened off this mark in the past but her tailed-off run after a break at Fontwell tempers enthusiasm.

Runner-up five times over hurdles but still awaiting a win; close second at Huntingdon in January after a break, so absence since May is no problem; likely to be in the firing line but needs to prove he can win.

Form & Verdict

Came good in points with two good-ground wins at Kingston Blount last May (maiden/restricted) but today's rules debut comes after a one-year absence and he has a bit more on his plate this time; swaps usual blinkers for first-time cheekpieces.

Dual point winner in May 2022; has shown ability with cheekpieces in his three hurdles races this May-July over 2m3f, 2m4f and over C&D, but more will be needed to win this.

Half-brother to smart chaser Chemical Energy; 1-8 in Irish points, the win gained on good to yielding ground in February; second twice in recent weeks and evidently in good heart, but probably best watched on rules debut.
