Form & Verdict

A maiden after 19 starts but arrested his decline with a close second over C&D (good to soft) last month, and backed up that performance with very respectable fourth over C&D (good) 17 days later; up in grade today but still considered.

Won handicaps at Sedgefield (2m4f, soft) and Doncaster (3m, heavy) before pulling up at Kelso after a break of just one week; now 10lb higher than for his last win (by 18l) but this refreshed 8yo can make his presence felt.

Thriving and bids for a hat-trick after bagging handicaps at Sedgefield (2m4f) and Doncaster (3m) recently; has a 7lb penalty to overcome now but he's still very much one to consider.

Form & Verdict

Just 1-13 over hurdles but earns pretty good marks for his consistency this year and is not fully exposed over this sort of trip; drops in grade here; likely to be right in the thick of things.

Just 1-20 over hurdles for Milton Harris/Anthony Charlton and has not been firing on all cylinders since returning from a break in the autumn; starts off for new trainer on a good mark and with conditions to suit but still needs today's headgear switch to perk him up.

Form & Verdict

Started off for George Bewley with three wins in the autumn (one over C&D) and took form to another new level when adding to his haul at Kelso (2m6f, good to soft) last month; should be fine on today's faster ground and further progress is not yet out of the equation.

4-7 for this yard, the latest win coming at Kelso in May; fair third at Hexham the following month and softening ground will suit this thorough stayer well (all four wins on good to soft/soft); live player.

Form & Verdict

Came good for Richard Newland with win off 2lb lower at Southwell (3m, good to soft) just over a year ago but has dropped out very tamely on both subsequent appearances; needs combination of wind surgery and first-time tongue-tie to aid his finishing effort here.

Two wins over hurdles but 0-4 chasing; clear of remainder when second at Sedgefield (3m3f, soft) in November but pulled up either side of that and it's difficult to know how he'll perform here.

Won over fences in the autumn and returned from break with pretty good hurdle run in April but didn't fire last time and may find younger rivals better handicapped.

Form & Verdict

Returned to form with pair of heavy-ground C&D wins in March and is also effective on good ground but was just a respectable fourth at Kelso (3m2f, good to firm) three weeks ago and current mark probably demands a career-best effort.

Form & Verdict

Generally disappointing since returning from long absence in November but suggested he could be ready to exploit some help from the handicapper when placed at Newcastle (2m7f, good) last month, and the first-time cheekpieces might give him a boost here.
