Form & Verdict

C&D winner in April and shade unfortunate not to win both subsequent starts; just caught be Fanfaron Dino here last month (3lb higher); usual 10lb claimer replaced by Jamie Moore; probably needs a bit more in this company.

Form & Verdict

Nine of his 12 wins have come in Jersey but won off this mark at Stratford last October; first start for six months when well beaten at Plumpton and needs to have benefited from that if he's to figure strongly.

Prolific winner in Jersey (mainly on the Flat) who has finished second on his last three hurdling starts, most recently at Hereford (2m3f, good) last month; more exposed than some of these, though, and today's slower ground may not be ideal.

Nine-time Flat winner who is 3-11 over hurdles and was a creditable second back in this sphere at Market Rasen (2m2f, good) in September; ideally suited by good or quicker ground and he should go well again after a short break.

Form & Verdict

Two Taunton wins in April; unable to complete the hat-trick at Newton Abbot last month but may have done too much too soon in that race; should have a pace to sit behind and no surprise to see him go close.

Tailed off at Fontwell last month (favourite), which takes some forgiving; won at the same track on previous outing and soft ground also no hardship so enters the argument if he can leave behind the latest flop.

J: Jay Tidball

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.

Form & Verdict

Enjoying a golden spell and completed a four-timer (one on the Flat) with a ready success at Stratford 13 days ago; up another 8lb but likely to prove hard to catch yet again if able to adopt usual front-running tactics.
