Form & Verdict

Very useful Flat-racer who collected four hurdle wins for Archie Watson last year and is 3-3 over fences for new stable this season; led close home to collect a good prize at Uttoxeter (2m, good) last time and may yet have more to offer; handles soft ground but probably best suited by good.

Prolific winner under both codes, notching up a four-timer over fences on joining this yard last summer; well held on AW Flat return in March but he does have a lower mark on turf.

J: Tom Eaves

T: Sam England

Prolific winner under both codes, latterly notching a four-timer over fences last summer; won first time out between the ages of three and five, so goes well fresh, but this is quite an ask off his AW mark (12lb higher than when well held on turf last spring).

Form & Verdict

Four-time hurdle winner who returned to form with creditable second at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good) this month; not bred for chasing but remains on a workable mark and today's drop back in trip won't be a problem; seemingly reliant on good ground.

Quirky customer who tends to idle when in front and had almost stopped to a walk before holding on to win three-runner chase at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good) last month; remains on a workable mark, though, and can make his presence felt; has had wind surgery since last time.

Form & Verdict

Five hurdle wins for Nicky Henderson and started off for Brian Ellison with respectable third at Market Rasen (2m4f, good) last month; disappointed on the Flat a few days later, though, and it's hard to tell what he'll make of fences; has won on good to soft but good or faster ground probably suits best.
