5 yo Gelding

Only 2-1 for his handicap debut at Huntingdon (2m, good to soft) in April and duly showed improved form to win with something in hand; 5lb rise perfectly fair for one open to further progress.

J: Jonjo O’Neill Jr

Has form figures of 113 (over 2m) since handicapping, respectable third here (good to soft) most recently; still not fully exposed and, judged on pedigree, the new trip is worth exploring.

6 yo Gelding

OR: 106

Form & Verdict

Won twice here last summer, latterly beating Pillar Of Steel narrowly off 5lb higher; has been rather subdued on last two runs, following a break, but returning here can only be a good thing.

J: Charlie Hammond

Absent since fair second of four at Worcester (2m, good) last June on final run for Tom George (remains in same ownership); however, his new trainer's horses can go well fresh and he's feasibly treated; not discounted.

J: Sean Bowen

T: Tom George

Won two handicap hurdles at Worcester last summer and he's now 2lb lower than for the second of them; never in the hunt at Exeter three weeks ago but that was his first run for 165 days and better is expected today.

Form & Verdict

Multiple winner in 2021 and just as good when pretty consistent in defeat last year; has conditions in his favour and she's fairly treated if returning from a break in good order.

Six hurdle wins, the latest over C&D (good to soft) for Henry Oliver last summer; better effort for James Evans last autumn when fourth over 2m at Ludlow (good) in October; has rejoined Henry Oliver ahead of this first outing for seven months; no great record fresh so might be best watched this time.

Finished last in two Worcester events in June, after more than a year off; sliding down the handicap but more than four years since he won over hurdles; of interest only if attracting support.

Well beaten over 2m here on return from more than a year off; that trip was well short of his best so can be expected to do better at 2m4f but still has a deal to prove; last hurdle win came four years ago.
