Form & Verdict

Narrow Ludlow hurdle winner last November (four ran, first time in cheekpieces) and has run somewhere near that level in three outings since; not the greatest jumper of hurdles which is a concern on chasing debut.

Unplaced in five hurdle starts, the latest pair in handicaps earlier this year; runner-up in only Irish point so could be a different proposition on chasing debut after wind surgery; interesting.

Made a fair fist of last month's chasing debut (after wind surgery) when second over 2m7f here; unexposed 5yo and could well improve on that; has to prove himself on soft ground but still considered.

Hadn't shown a lot in this yard so something of a shock when she beat three rivals at Uttoxeter this month, when apparently appreciating an easy lead; effectively 7lb higher and might have a rival up front.

J: Miss Jess Stewart

T: Sheila Lewis

Won small-field chases at Uttoxeter this June and September, but those are way in advance of her other performances this year; wore cheekpieces on six of last seven starts, with tongue-tie on last two; clear risks for backers but trainer won this race in 2020 and 2022, latterly with another of today's runners, Family Plot.

Form & Verdict

Four wins last season, at up to 2m3f+ (stays 3m); not quite at best in first start after wind surgery and then appeared to find Cartmel not to his liking; can be considered if that latest effort is forgiven.

Bright start for new stable with two wins at Exeter (2m3f); jumping has been an issue, to some extent, in both outings since; ran creditably latest (3m, good to soft) but ideally needs to regain fluency.

2-2 in 2m3f handicap chases at Exeter (heavy/good to soft) since switching to Harry Derham; form of both wins boosted, particularly the latter, and a further 8lb rise doesn't look enough to stop him with ground conditions to suit.

Form & Verdict

Three chase starts; still has something to learn about jumping fences but, having finished a laboured second at Ffos Las last month, he won at Huntingdon two days later (from Lough Carra, runs 1.58); just 3lb higher on his first attempt at this trip; greater fluency could see him hard to beat.

Largely consistent over fences this season, pipped at Taunton (2m7f) on last two outings; sometimes wears cheekpieces and had a visor on latest start; more to prove if the ground is worse than good to soft.

Hat-trick last year with the final leg coming off this mark over C&D; pulled up in four of six starts since but at least managed a third at Newton Abbot latest; might yet do better, especially if able to dominate.
