Form & Verdict

Runner-up over hurdles at Ffos Las (2m, good) last month and remains very well handicapped on some of last year's chasing form but weakened rather tamely here (over hurdles) three weeks ago and career strike-rate is now 0-23; all his best form was recorded on good/good to firm ground.

Last month's win at Newton Abbot (2m, good to soft) was a first victory at the 24th attempt, and he was a well-beaten second of four at Market Rasen (2m1f, good to soft) last time; however, he bumped into a progressive winner and could be involved today; also effective on good ground.

Runner-up over hurdles (2m, good) in June and back to form when winning over fences at Newton Abbot (2m, good to soft) three weeks ago; unproven on soft/heavy; that was a first victory at the 24th attempt but he had 4l to spare and remains well treated on past exploits.

Form & Verdict

Seven-time chase winner (twice over C&D); out of form in early part of last season and returned from layoff with another disappointing effort in April but he's very well handicapped now and can't be ruled out; raced mainly on good ground but has form on soft/heavy.

Form & Verdict

Returned to form to make winning stable debut at Stratford (2m1f, good) in May; no match for easy winner when second at Southwell last month and probably doesn't have much margin for error off current mark but is the one with least to prove here; seems best on good ground but handles good to soft.

Won on stable debut over C&D (good) in May and second to well-handicapped winner at Southwell (2m, good) next time; good to soft ground may have been against him when below par at Newton Abbot last time and he could play a leading role now back on a better surface.

Form & Verdict

Useful in his prime but has regressed and become very inconsistent; signed off for Richard Hobson with narrow win off today's mark at Taunton (2m, good to soft) in March but well beaten all three starts for current stable; versatile regarding ground.
