Form & Verdict

Made underwhelming hurdle debut in the autumn but returned from break with two emphatic wins against own sex this spring (one over C&D); takes on males here but still commands respect; raced only on good/good to soft ground.

Safely held on hurdling debut in the autumn but returned from break with three wide-margin wins in the spring (one over C&D); no match for comfortable winner when second at Stratford (2m, good) six weeks ago and has a bit to find with Father Of Jazz here but ought to play a major role.

Fair Flat-racer who beat three rivals in pretty good style on stable/hurdle debut at Musselburgh (1m7f, good to soft) in March; safely held twice since (both times on good ground) but can still play a significant role here.

Form & Verdict

Has raced very freely on both hurdling starts but it didn't stop him dominating from the front at Worcester (2m, good) this month; that form isn't anything to get too excited about but he has plenty of scope for further progress and this track ought to suit his running style.

Signs of some ability when fourth of five finishers in the second of two Irish points but he proved hard to restrain on hurdle debut for new yard at Uttoxeter (2m, good) four weeks ago and paid the price; has potential but needs to learn to settle.

Form & Verdict

1-20 on the Flat, the win gained last summer (11.5f; RPR 80); should be fine stamina-wise over hurdles but both Flat runs this year have been disappointing, and he probably won't be favoured by any rain.

Made all in a small field here last summer (11.5f, good to firm) off an 11lb higher mark; record this season is patchy at best but this is a weak race and a revival wouldn't be out of the question; new headgear on.
