W: 11st 5lb

9 yo Gelding

OR: 115

Form & Verdict

Ran a bit flat at Huntingdon three weeks ago (2m, good) but he's a capable chaser on his day under these conditions and pretty consistent; has no great margin for error off this mark but should have a say.

Good-ground wins at Stratford and Worcester have been the clear form highlights this season; arrives on the back of a low note, having suffered a heavy defeat last time.

J: Harry Kimber

T: Robert Walford

Alighted upon a moderate class 3 at Stratford in June (2m1f, good) and only 1lb higher tonight; record of 1132222124 around here, but poor jumping display over C&D latest needs a little bit of forgiving.

10 yo Mare

OR: 101

Form & Verdict

Inconsistent these days but she does like it here and returned to winning ways 13 days ago in a 2m3f handicap confined to mares (good; 4lb lower); whether she'll be as good this time is the burning issue.

9 yo Gelding

OR: 107

Form & Verdict

Absent since October but was on a roll back then, securing his fifth successive win in effectively a match at Fontwell (2m2f, good); all that came at a cost for his handicap mark but he hasn't had much racing for a 9yo and conditions are ideal.

Won five consecutive chases last summer/autumn; not at his best the last twice but this front-runner is on a good mark if refreshed from a break.

OR: 124

Form & Verdict

Made all on chase/handicap debut at Wincanton (1m7f, good; form worked out) in November and returned to that sort of form when third of Market Rasen (last to complete but in a decent race); had wind surgery since; bold-jumping front-runner who should be suited to this track.

11st 5lb

J: Jack Hogan

T: Tom George

Free-goer who is still to follow up 2022's Wincanton 1m7f wins (hurdle/chase); irregular heartbeat and soft ground excuse last two runs, but nowhere to hide here with trip, ground and mark all perfect.

Stormin Crossgales

11st 7lb

J: Jonathan Burke

T: Tom George

Headstrong sort who is inconsistent and was pulled up last time; however, he was found to have an irregular heartbeat and was uncharacteristically held-up, which may not have suited; has dropped to a dangerous mark and he was a fair third over C&D last November; not written off.

9/1
