Form & Verdict

Scored off 1lb lower over C&D (good to soft; front pair well clear) in March 2022 and was creditable third at Cheltenham (2m1f, good) on latest outing in December; versatile regarding ground and will be a danger to all if fully tuned up after his break.

A 1m7f winner in Germany; well supported when close second in a 1m4f handicap at Cork last August; ran poorly at Navan before scoring on Dundalk AW in October; will need more experience judged on hurdle outings at Fairyhouse and Punchestown.

Form & Verdict

Landed a good prize off today's mark in first-time cheekpieces at Market Rasen (2m, good) last summer and was placed in a another valuable race there in September but reappeared with a disappointing run last month and the cheekpieces are missing again here; raced mainly on good ground but was placed in a bumper on soft.

Ex-Irish 7yo who won a maiden hurdle and a beginners' chase at Ballinrobe for Enda Bolger last spring (both 2m1f); not seen since pulled up in another chase last summer but it will be interesting to see what new stable can do with him; seems versatile regarding ground.

Ex-Irish 8yo; lightly raced in recent years and was well beaten on what was effectively his stable debut at Hereford (2m, good to soft; first-time hood) last month; needs to have taken huge benefit from that run.

Form & Verdict

Can sometimes race too freely but came good for James Owen at third attempt, with clearcut success in refitted cheekpieces at Fakenham (2m, good) this month, and is probably still on a workable mark after a 5lb rise; suited by good/good to soft ground.

J: Silvestre De Sousa

T: James Owen

Seen far more often over hurdles (winner on varied ground); has lost his way in that discipline but he was a smooth 2m winner on the Kempton AW in March on his only Flat start since 2021; 4lb higher today but could have more to offer in this sphere and is one to consider.

Form & Verdict

Four-time C&D winner, most recently off 3lb lower last summer; not disgraced in hot race at Haydock last month, after a layoff, and has each-way claims at least on return to this happy hunting ground; very effective on good or good to soft ground.

Two wins here and last month's Haydock outing should have put him right; latest event at Stratford voided after a mile; all wins (apart from one in Jersey) at up to 2m1f so stamina to prove at this trip; chances if staying.

Five-time hurdle winner on good/good to firm ground; went very close on the Flat in April (on soft ground) but was below form in that sphere recently and probably doesn't have much margin for error off current hurdle mark.

Very lightly raced in recent years but proved he retains a good chunk of ability when close fifth of 12 at Ludlow (2m, good to soft) six weeks ago, and has possibilities if able to build on that performance here; has won on good to firm and soft ground.
