Four-time hurdle winner; back on a good mark now but was unable to land a telling blow over C&D (good to soft) last month and would appeal more on better ground.

Notched a four-timer between May-November last year (including over C&D); ran well in defeat two starts ago but tailed off in February and absent since; could well resume on an upward curve; makes the running.

Won four consecutive handicaps between May and November in 2022 (all on good); off only 2lb higher than for the last of those she returned to winning ways with a convincing success at Wincanton two months ago when in this new headgear combination; back up 7lb but goes well fresh and hard to rule out.

Well beaten latest (connections thought ground was softer than advertised) but had previously beaten three rivals at Ffos Las (in cheekpieces for first time); stays well and can be considered.

Triple good-ground winner over 2m7f-3m last year; now 1lb lower than for last success but he's been well held in last three runs and needs a major upturn in form.

Form & Verdict

Two Taunton novice wins in the spring of 2021 but went off the boil in a big way last year and left Paul Nicholls; led for a long way when third at Ffos Las on stable debut, after a break, and chances may hinge on how he reacts to blinkers (cheekpieces no seeming help on five occasions).
