Form & Verdict

Fair Flat-racer with form on ground ranging from good to heavy; not an instant success over hurdles but travelled strongly before asserting here (2m2f, good) last month, and a 6lb rise ought to be manageable.

Three hurdle wins on good ground this season (2m1f-2m3f); behind two of these when below form at Exeter last month and would prefer the rain to stay away but, if judged on Flat form, he could still be on a good mark.

Form & Verdict

Evidently suited by drop back to 2m when opening account with 6l success at Uttoxeter (good) in May, his sixth start over hurdles; hiked up 9lb for that but further progress is possible; raced mainly on good ground but seemed to handle soft fairly well in one of his bumpers.

Form & Verdict

Placed three consecutive times in the spring, most notably when close second to bang-in-form rival in Ffos Las handicap (2m4f, good); didn't fire when dropped back to 2m three weeks ago but current mark ought to be workable if he's back on song; handles good to soft; unraced on anything slower

0-10 over hurdles and 1-52 overall; hasn't been with Neil Mulholland long and belied 50-1 odds when second over C&D (good) last month but was well below that form at Southwell three weeks ago and the forecast rain is probably not in his favour.

No chance with the winner when runner-up in a Lingfield novice (1m2f, AW) last December; has failed to sparkle over hurdles since (0-6), so switches back to the Flat for handicap debut at a realistic level.

Out of a sister to stable's superstar Cue Card; didn't show a great deal in two bumpers in December but runner-up here (2m5f, good) on both hurdling starts this season (albeit safely held in rather thin races); drops in trip for today's handicap debut; open to further improvement.

Out of a sister to the stable's superstar Cue Card but this 6yo has stopped quickly in all three handicaps; however, there was promise in his qualifying runs and perhaps the wind op/tongue-tie factors can help him turn things around.
