Form & Verdict

Had struggled after a long absence but returned to form with a C&D success last month (well backed): 6lb rise still leaves him on a feasible mark and obvious claims with yard going strongly.

10st 13lb

J: Sean Bowen

T: Peter Bowen

Made it four wins for the season (all on good but has run well on soft) when comfortably beating solid yardstick at Worcester (2m7f) last August; not at that level since and extremely fortunate to win at Hereford last month, after a break, but it was over an inadequate 2m and there was encouragement in that run; Peter Bowen and Sean Bowen won this with 40-1 shot Henllan Harri in 2017 who, like this fellow, was tackling his longest trip yet; one to note.

Form & Verdict

Two hurdle wins; pulled up on last month's chasing debut but much better at Newton Abbot two weeks ago, until taking a heavy fall two out when close second; could run well if none the worse for that mishap.

Runner-up at Stratford a month ago, after a break; left in charge at the final fence then but idled and rather threw victory away; cheekpieces now fitted and has the ability to win this if the aids work.

J: Miss Fern O’Brien

T: Fergal O’Brien

Has done all her winning under rules in small fields but it was never in much doubt when coming home 20l to the good at Market Rasen in July (3m3f, good; cheekpieces left off); up 10lb in a deeper race here and a tendency to land steeply over her fences (evident late on last time) is a concern here.

T: Fergal O’Brien

Runner-up at Stratford (2m6f) in May, left in charge at the final fence but idling and rather throwing victory away; cheekpieces fitted at Worcester (2m4f) 18 days ago but well below form; the furthest she's been under rules was 3m1f last November, a race she won but her only two rivals failed to finish; 7lb claimer enlisted; none too solid.

Form & Verdict

Perth winner five weeks ago, on return from eight months off; unable to justify favouritism at Market Rasen since but the visor worn in the success is back on, which could give him a lift; not discounted by any means.

All wins on good/good to soft; won at Musselburgh in November (2m, good to soft; 3lb lower) and softer conditions were against him last time; stays this far and hard to rule out.

Form & Verdict

Won off 4lb higher on stable debut last September but hasn't really been firing on all cylinders since, including in two outings after a break; blinkers (3-12 in them) return and hopes may rest on how they work.

10yo who lost his form over fences last season but he returned from a break with a fair third over hurdles at Fakenham recently on his stable debut, and he's well treated on his best chase form; not ruled out.
