Form & Verdict

Doesn't come here in the best of form but he has been contesting deeper races than this one and he made all in this 12 months ago off 5lb higher; this could be the opening he needs to get back on track.

Disappointing that he didn't run better when dropped in grade at Ludlow (3m, good) as he's got a good record in Class 4s; that casts some doubts about him at the minute.

Similar type to Hurricane Harvey, having been campaigned mostly at a higher level; has lost his form since winning at Stratford last June but may revive back down in grade; 3-5 in Class 4.

Form & Verdict

Looked good when winning by 16l at Newton Abbot (3m2f, good) last September and is still well handicapped on older form, but she has a very mixed record and this is her first run since November.

Neither 3m2f trip nor familiar assertive tactics to blame when dropping out quickly on last month's chasing debut at Newton Abbot (beaten 28l); needs to jump better, but too early to write off; down a useful 6lb.

Had rather mixed record over hurdles but won by 16l here (3m2f, good) in the autumn and returned from layoff with very respectable run over similar trip at Stratford last month; has possibilities if she takes well to chasing but may be reliant on good ground.

Infrequent winner (3-30); bang there at Leicester (2m4f, soft) and perhaps failed to stay 3m2f on his final run for Jonjo O'Neill; on a decent mark if his new trainer can get him going again.

Two fairly good runs for new stable this season, more recently when staying-on third at Worcester (2m4f, good to soft) six weeks ago; competes off same mark here and the longer trip will suit; shortlisted.

Form & Verdict

First past the post on three successive occasions last summer/autumn (2m7f-3m2), albeit demoted to second on the first occasion and beating only one rival for the latest; 7-1 for his recent return at Warwick and departed early; bit to prove regarding what form he's in at present.

Off the same mark as for his last win when beating four rivals at Uttoxeter (2m7f, good to soft) last July but two lesser efforts followed in the autumn and he made a low-key reappearance in April; needs to revive.

Below par at Bangor a fortnight ago when the heavy going shouldn't have been an issue (won on such ground in July); however, he won at Kelso (3m2f, good to soft) two starts ago and could bounce back with a bold show.
