Form & Verdict

Not straightforward (has given trouble at the start on more than one occasion) but it hasn't stopped him gaining a 3-8 record over hurdles; narrowly beat a subsequent winner at Warwick last month and only 3lb higher; strong claims with Dylan Whelan again taking off 10lb.

In fine form in the summer and completed his hat-trick in 2m7f Worcester handicap hurdle; posted another solid effort off a 6lb higher mark when fourth at Stratford (3m2f) last time so he's shortlisted.

Consistent and progressive mare with two chase wins here this spring; only third (off 9lb lower) when last seen over hurdles six months ago but has improved since; fair chance if able to transfer her chasing form.

Won twice on slow ground over hurdles (2m3f/2m4f) towards the end of last year but he has a mixed record since; perked up with a fair third over C&D (good) in June but he failed to back that up at Worcester and others are preferred; cheekpieces reapplied.

Quite lightly raced since winning four in a row on good ground in 2020 and comes here after two disappointing efforts, the latter in refitted cheekpieces; needs to be perked up by the first-time visor.

Form & Verdict

Caught close home when third here 18 days ago (2m4f+), on return from nine months off; the pair that finished either side of him contest the 2.20 on this card and might give a clue to the worth of the form; either way, he's one to consider.

Quite useful hurdler/chaser in his prime but can't operate at that level now and although he was second at Ludlow (3m, soft) last time, that was ordinary form with the favourite underperforming; up against it.
