Form & Verdict

Very progressive 7yo who has won four in a row in today's headgear combination since March; up another 7lb since last week's Market Rasen success (2m4f, good) but that came in a good race and he makes obvious appeal here.

J: Micheal Nolan

T: Syd Hosie

Defied a 2lb lower mark last summer (2m4f, good; fine on softer) and returns to this discipline after two defeats over fences, the latest a respectable effort (beaten 10l); probably in fair form and entitled to run well.

Enhanced excellent C&D record when keeping on strongly to score by over 4l on good ground here last month; still on a good mark after a 6lb rise and needs to be taken very seriously.

11yo who returned in April from a long absence and has looked as good as ever the last twice with wins at Kelso (2m5f, good) and Ayr (3m, good to soft); could play a leading role once more.

Form & Verdict

No longer the force of old but cheekpieces have helped in recent weeks, and he battled on well to end a long losing spell here (2m, good) a fortnight ago; only 2lb higher today and the longer trip won't be a problem.

Snapped a long losing run when in front at Hexham last month (2m, good) and probably ran to the same level when third back there over 2m4f 19 days ago; exposed but in form and should run well back in a Class 4.

2-3 since switched to handicaps this spring, with both wins gained over 2m4f at Newcastle (heavy/good); hiked up 10lb for the latter success but did it in very good style and the form has been well advertised by the runner-up since; respected.

Form & Verdict

Enjoyed revival when fitted with visor towards end of 2021-22 season, winning twice over today's trip, but missed all of last season and it's hard to predict what sort of form he'll be in after his layoff; cheekpieces back on today.

Took a step back in the right direction when third in a first-time visor (retained since) at Newcastle last month, and built on that when winning there a fortnight ago (2m4f, good); back up 4lb but he had 3l to spare and remains well treated on his old form; can give another good account.

Won five times over hurdles in 2022 (2m-2m4f; three times here) and was seemingly back in good form when staying-on fourth here (2m, good to soft) last month; soundly beaten on chasing debut a week later but switches back to hurdling on a workable mark and enters calculations.
