Unexposed 6yo who ran well when third behind Onesmoothoperator in the November Handicap over C&D, especially as he made his effort away from the first two; finished fourth of 13 in a hot handicap over 1m2f here on New Year's Day and form of that race is working out spectacularly well; major player from same mark.

Enjoyed a good season for this yard in 2023, winning twice on turf and rounding off his campaign with a placed effort in the November Handicap; can win races off this mark but this one might prove too daunting.

Flopped on penultimate outing but otherwise progressive for current stable and that defeat is flanked by turf wins over 1m4f/1m2f, latest at Leicester; dam's side suggests he'll relish this step back up in distance; could well improve further; shortlisted on AW debut.

Yet to run a bad race, getting off the mark when stepped up to 1m4f in first-time cheekpieces in a Salisbury maiden last time (good to firm); handles good to soft ground; contender.

T: Olly Murphy

Quite useful at 1m4f on the Flat, winning twice; chased home good horses, including Liari, in his first two hurdle races (good to soft) but progress hit a pothole when turned over at long odds-on at Market Rasen and soft ground (which he never encountered in ten Flat starts) was perhaps a factor; others preferred.

Both Flat wins at 1m4f (pretty useful form, best of these); good start to hurdle career for new yard, running up against talented Nicholls youngsters both times and dashing home to take a late second in a Listed Musselburgh race 16 days ago (1m7f, good to soft); this looks a good opportunity.

Fairly useful and consistent performer at up to 1m4f on Flat for James Ferguson; sold for 90,000gns before an encouraging show on hurdle debut at Kempton (2m, good to soft; 9-1) three weeks ago, keeping on well into second of six behind an impressive winner; worth a second look despite not being one of the top players on form.

Won a three-runner Doncaster nursery last August (1m, good); some fair efforts this term, notably when fifth in a York handicap two runs back (1m4f, good to firm; first-time cheekpieces); visor now tried; a possible.

A fairly useful ex-Irish 1m4f winner who has hinted at a revival of late for his current yard, patiently ridden when 11th over 1m2f here last time; he's one to consider back up in trip off a falling mark.
