Enjoying a fine summer with two Stratford wins and shade unfortunate (slipping saddle) when second at Southwell latest; another 6lb rise in stronger company asks a lot from this 13yo, however.

Form & Verdict

Not the most reliable but runner-up in May and scored (off 1lb higher than today) over 2m6f here 12 days ago; those were over hurdles (on good ground) and he was pulled up in a chase here earlier in May when back from three runs (placed twice) in points; bit to prove in this sphere.

Dual winner at Stratford last summer (2m6f/3m2f), latterly off today's mark; drops in grade after respectable fourth at Wincanton (3m, good to soft) on Boxing Day and will be suited by the forecast good ground here; high on the list.

Form & Verdict

Sole win came last October off this mark after five-month break and he ran well three weeks later, both over 2m4f; no worthwhile form in his three starts since, which was not his fault on penultimate outing but he did not show much here in April on latest.

Form & Verdict

Inconsistent but easily won this race last year (good) off 5lb higher and also scored in good style at Southwell (good to soft) this March; thrown in on that form and should be more interesting than on last two outings, which were in novice hurdles.

Six-time chase winner, most recently when finishing well to lead close home at Perth (3m, good) last month; it might be wise to treat the form with a degree of caution but he's only 1lb higher here today and is very well suited by this track.

Fortunate to win final start in Irish points (ran in seven of them); his four runs since were over hurdles, showing a bit on third occasion but last of 11 on handicap debut last time; upped in trip for this switch to chasing.
