3-11 over hurdles, the latest win gained off much-reduced mark over C&D (good) three weeks ago; 4lb rise ought to be manageable; likely contender.

Back in prime form this season, winning three in a row under Tom Broughton at Southwell (3m, good); latest 5lb rise ought to be manageable and she makes very obvious appeal.

Has a record of 4-12 over hurdles and she's won under Tom Broughton over C&D (good) in her last two starts; has another 4lb rise to deal with after a short break but she's respected in her hat-trick bid.

Form & Verdict

0-7 over hurdles but went down fighting when clear second in refitted cheekpieces at Uttoxeter (2m7f, good) last month and remains unexposed over this sort of trip; contender if in similar mood here.

Form & Verdict

Displays a rather awkward head carriage but darted clear to assert after travelling strongly over C&D (good) last month, his first attempt at 3m under rules; major player if judged on that performance but needs to bounce back from heavy defeat over fences a few days later.

Both hurdle wins on good ground but showed he could get it done on soft when winning a five-runner handicap chase at Hexham (3m) 16 days ago; the third there has won since and a 4lb rise isn't excessive; one to consider.

Form & Verdict

Wide-margin C&D (good) winner in May 2022 and placed five consecutive times afterwards; very well handicapped on those heroics (even from 2lb out of the weights) but has been out of form this spring, and refused to race on his penultimate appearance (race subsequently declared void).

2-30 over hurdles, latest win in May 2022; has refound some form when twice fourth this autumn, with a lesser show 19 days ago coming on heavy going; looks vulnerable to some of his far less exposed rivals.
