Form & Verdict

Fortunate winner of 2m6f Hereford handicap hurdle but he made an encouraging start over fences when second of 12 over C&D 29 days ago; cheekpieces go on and he ought to be in the shake-up off an unchanged mark.

Mopped up several of these events from 2m4f-3m1f in the spring and autumn of last year, all on good or good to soft; genuine soft ground probably against him at Cheltenham in November when last seen; drops back further in trip and may still have more to come.

Very progressive 6yo who is 4-4 since fitted with cheekpieces, the latest win gained under Jack Andrews in 19-runner handicap over C&D (good) three weeks ago with two of today's rivals on his heels; unraced on ground slower than good to soft but otherwise his claims are very solid.

Failed to go on after her breakthrough hurdling success over 2m4f here in October; also went with little promise on her chasing debut at Huntingdon in December so she returns to this sphere with something to prove.

Has won just one of her 17 rules starts and she was well beaten over fences here last time; however, she was in fair form in that discipline previously and her sole win came over hurdles; could be thereabouts if bouncing back in reapplied cheekpieces (albeit no positive effect in the past).

Generally in good form this season, and rallied well to open his account at Bangor (2m4f, soft) a fortnight ago; will be fine on today's faster ground and is evidently in good heart but his poor record on right-handed tracks is a worry here.

Seemed to excel himself when second of three from a long way out of the handicap at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good) last month but was grossly flattered by his proximity to idling winner and the form looks somewhat dubious; soundly beaten off correct mark since; others preferred.

24lb out of the weights when running surprisingly well at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good) last week, though only three ran and the chances are the bare form flatters him; this should confirm one way or another, but he's 19lb lower this time so has to be taken seriously.
