Form & Verdict

Had a consistent spell, including creditable third in major 2m7f handicap at Sandown, between November and February when with Paul Nicholls; absent since April but goes well fresh; sold for £27,000 in May; tongue-tie added on debut for new stable; best form puts him in the picture.

Reportedly lost his action when pulled up over hurdles last time but didn't enter that race in much form; also below his best when the last to complete in September on his only chase start; has a bit to prove.

J: James Turner

T: Nigel Twiston-Davies

Not at his best the last twice but the first occasion was his chase debut, and when back over hurdles at Cheltenham last time he was hampered early which proved costly given he usually makes the running; made all at Uttoxeter (2m7f, good) in July and he's fine on slow ground; could make bold bid.

Form & Verdict

Scored three times (off lower marks) in 2022 and has proved consistent in the main; ran respectably in small field at Fontwell (3m2f) last month on second run back from a break; likely to give his running.

Form & Verdict

Had wind surgery prior to an encouraging effort, behind a rival who was on the fourth leg of a five-timer, at Market Rasen (2m4f, good) last month on debut for Dan Skelton; nicely weighted, especially with Tristan Durrell taking off a handy 5lb, and the step back up in trip looks ideal (last win came over 3m); respected.

Keen-going front-runner who has won three times this season (2m-2m5f); not at her best when third of five at Kelso (2m1f, good to soft) last month but is back down to a workable mark and could take some catching.

Form & Verdict

Sole success came in 2020 when trained in Ireland; however, largely consistent for current stable, including good efforts in competitive races at Cheltenham (2m4f) and Haydock (3m) this spring; beaten favourite over 2m1f last time but has possibilities back up in distance.

Ex-Irish mare who finished second on three of her four starts for Donald McCain last season (all in cheekpieces), most recently when going close in series final at Cheltenham (2m4f, good) last month; still unexposed over 3m; a possible if today's headgear switch has any beneficial effect.

Ex-French hurdler who had a record of 3-6 for new yard in the 2021-22 campaign; tougher mark found him out the last twice but he's 6lb lower on this return from 445-day layoff; heed the market signals.

7 yo Gelding

OR: 135

Form & Verdict

Career record is just 1-15 and he's not solid judged on this year's two efforts (hurdle/chase); has bits of fairly useful form but, along with stablemate Jungle Prose, doesn't look attractively handicapped.
