Form & Verdict

Ex-Dan Skelton 5yo who has been beaten 12 times since his last win in November 2021 but he's edged down the weights and was a good third at Southwell (2m, good) three weeks ago on his second run for this yard; cheekpieces return (no positive impact on the Flat in the past); could be thereabouts.

J: Silvestre De Sousa

T: James Owen

Seen far more often over hurdles (winner on varied ground); has lost his way in that discipline but he was a smooth 2m winner on the Kempton AW in March on his only Flat start since 2021; 4lb higher today but could have more to offer in this sphere and is one to consider.

Belatedly returned to the Flat 18 days ago and won a Class 4 2m handicap at Kempton; he's a five-time winner over hurdles and well suited by a quick 2m; Alex Chadwick's claim is welcomed off a challenging mark; respected.

Form & Verdict

Having been bought out of John McConnell's yard for £1,600 he returned to form with a win in a first-time tongue-tie (retained today) in a novice selling hurdle at Stratford (2m, good) a fortnight ago; faces a tougher task now back in a handicap but he did it nicely last time and is respected.

Fair Flat-racer who has taken pretty well to hurdling this year; denied clear run when close third (just behind Nibras Gold) off today's mark at Newton Abbot (2m1f, good) in July but not seen again since and today's forecast slower ground may not be ideal.

Form & Verdict

A win in this race last season was the middle leg of a hat-trick and he's fully 14lb lower than when last successful; however, this 12yo has struggled to get competitive this year and a major turnaround is needed.

Hat-trick last spring but not in that level of form so far this year; well held at Fakenham latest and due to go down 4lb in future; often front-runs but Pak Army a rival for that role.

Winner of his second and third handicaps (2m; on soft and good to soft) in the spring and ran up to his best when a close third to an improved one at Stratford (2m2f, good) in October; no further progress at Ascot and remains to be seen whether this trip in the mud are his ideal conditions.
