Form & Verdict

Running well but he has something to find with Across The Line on penultimate effort and the race he won at Southwell (2m4f, good) last time completely fell apart as he was the only horse to complete.

Won four times in the first half of 2023, including C&D (only finisher); pulled up on his stable debut last month after a ten-month absence; may fare better today but not entirely convincing.

Form & Verdict

Often takes a keen hold and is seen to best effect when held up off a strong pace (far from guaranteed in this); won two four-runner handicaps at Newton Abbot (2m, good) last summer but well below par in two runs on either side of a lengthy break.

J: Micheal Nolan

T: Seamus Mullins

Should get some pace to come off, and both mark (5lb below his last winning one) and ground are perfect; absence since October is a concern, however, given all ten wins have come after breaks of six weeks or fewer.

Form & Verdict

Back to form with a couple of seconds and he was clear at one point under a positive ride last time at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good; same mark); interesting to see if similar tactics are employed here as he could be tough to reel in.

Form & Verdict

Probably failed to stay 3m1f on his penultimate start (in cheekpieces) but a winner on either side of that in the visor, in 2m5f handicaps at Hereford and Fontwell (good to soft for both; fine on good); a 9lb rise for the latest asks a question of him but he's clearly a contender.

Two chase wins at 2m5f (good to soft) for David Bridgwater last spring; form has nosedived since last June, however; back hurdling for first time since January 2023; tongue-tie (last worn in 2022) returns.
