Travelled strongly for a long way when fourth on handicap debut at Newcastle (2m1f, good to soft) in February but a lesser effort followed in April (albeit on soft ground); not written off just yet but needs to learn to settle better; tongue-tie added today.

Won on the Flat in Belgium last year and displayed improvement over hurdles when clear second to bang-in-form rival at Stratford (2m, good to firm) last time; has to take a 3lb rise on the chin but still makes strong appeal.

Fair Flat-racer who shaped with promise on both hurdling starts for new stable last season, more recently when third at Wetherby (2m, good) in March; had wind op soon afterwards and is fitted with a tongue-tie for today's handicap debut; improvement possible.

Progress as a hurdler has flatlined, but he's 5lb below his highest winning mark on Tapeta, and although yet to record an RPR above 56 in four Flat turf starts this is easier than any of those; cheekpieces added.

Travelled strongly when third of six on handicap hurdle debut at Southwell (2m, good) in June and he won over staying trips on the Flat which suggests he may have potential at this distance; however, he has to bounce back from two below-par runs over hurdles (2m/2m4f, good); unraced on slow turf.

0-10 over hurdles and not very consistent but ran well in defeat behind well-handicapped rival over C&D (good) last month and is arguably fortunate to have escaped with just a 1lb rise for that performance.

15-race maiden; runner-up from 12lb out of the handicap over C&D (66-1) in September; has failed to better that in six subsequent starts, so it isn't all that difficult to focus on others for the solution; 10lb wrong.

Twice made the frame on good ground during the summer (2m/2m4f) and quickly put a lacklustre run behind him when very respectable fourth at Wincanton (3m, good) last month but is 0-8 over hurdles now and others here have more potential.

Seen only twice last season, latterly when running very poorly on chasing debut in February; reverts to hurdling with some questions to answer and with career strike-rate now 0-12 but has been given a good chance by the handicapper and will be feared if strong in the betting.

Minor honours at best in his first 12 starts (one of the best was at this track in 2021) but he then returned from a layoff to win by a street at Southwell (2m, heavy; made most) in November; only four ran in that race but his subsequent 7lb rise also doesn't look too harsh on previous best form; this race should be a lot more competitive but he's on the shortlist.

Form & Verdict

Had regressed since winning three times on the Flat in 2020 and was unable to land a blow in Market Rasen maiden hurdle on stable debut in April but makes his handicap hurdle debut off a lowly mark and with cheekpieces refitted; no surprise if he gets a bit more competitive this time.
