Form & Verdict

Runner-up at Stratford (2m6f) in May, left in charge at the final fence but idling and rather throwing victory away; cheekpieces fitted at Worcester (2m4f) 18 days ago but well below form; the furthest she's been under rules was 3m1f last November, a race she won but her only two rivals failed to finish; 7lb claimer enlisted; none too solid.

Has done all her winning under rules in small fields but it was never in much doubt when coming home 20l to the good at Market Rasen in July (3m3f, good; cheekpieces left off); up 10lb in a deeper race here and a tendency to land steeply over her fences (evident late on last time) is a concern here.

Form & Verdict

All wins have been on softer than good and his good-ground form is nowhere near this mark; not proven beyond 3m and he was beaten more than 20l when taking minor honours in small fields on last two outings.

Not firing on all cylinders this season but rewarded persistent Sean Bowen ride when staying on well to exploit much reduced mark at Cartmel (3m1f, soft) two weeks ago; would appeal more on slower ground but remains well handicapped on older form; pulled up in early stages at Southwell on Thursday after saddle slipped.

Form & Verdict

Front-runner who stays well; thrown in today if judged even on the form shown on his first two starts last season (one on good); however, easily his best show in hunter chases since came when second at Carlisle in March (3m, heavy) and such a poor show at Cartmel last time has to be a major concern.

Won Sandown's big end-of-season finale in 2018 and took two further handicaps in 2020; nearly won a hunter chase at Carlisle in March but a weaker one than this, and he's always been a more potent force going right-handed.

Form & Verdict

Low-mileage 7yo who scored over fences at Worcester (2m7f, good) last June and, on second run following 345 days off, did so again this June when tongue tied first time; not proven beyond that but the latest win was pretty smooth and he can deal with the 5lb rise given today's opposition.

2-4 over fences, gaining both wins over 2m7f on good ground at Worcester; not yet fully exposed but has been absent since a heavy defeat last summer, and today's trip-and-ground combination may not be his cup of tea.

Low-mileage 7yo who scored on just his second chasing attempt, over C&D last June; off almost a year before coming in a well-held fifth over hurdles at Ffos Las last month; needs considering back over fences fitted with a tongue-strap for the first time.
