Seven-race maiden but he's finished runner-up in two of his three handicaps including a close second behind an improver at Perth (3m, good) three weeks ago; up 3lb but he's still unexposed as a stayer and is respected.

His breakthrough win at Uttoxeter (2m7f, good to soft) had been coming but he ran a modest latest race here when well behind Karavomylos and has to bounce back from that.

Runner-up in two of his first three handicaps before winning one at Uttoxeter (2m7f, good to soft) on latest outing, about to be challenged by Broomfields Cave when that rival fell at the last; up 5lb whereas Broomfields Cave has gone up 4lb; firmly in the mix.

Form & Verdict

Triple hurdle winner who made all at Bangor (2m7f) last July but he has a patchy record since and was a remote third at Southwell (3m, good) last time; now 2lb lower than for last win but he comes with risks attached; has won on good and soft ground.

Three-time winner in the pointing scene this spring; ran very poorly over fences in June but bounced back to finish runner-up on his return to hurdling at Worcester (2m7f, good) two weeks ago; has each-way claims again for yard that won this in 2021.

Often leads; some feat for an 11yo to have won six of his last eight starts (all staying handicap hurdles) and at his best in the mud, as he showed with an ultra-game defeat of Supremely West at Chepstow three weeks ago; has earned his career-high mark (up 7lb for last time) and there's no knocking him.

Often leads; five wins last August-December, the last of which was over C&D (soft) at Christmas; up a further 7lb to another career-high mark at Huntingdon (good to soft) one month ago when that superb sequence came to an end and the scale of his defeat was concerning; needs to bounce back with another career best, aged 11.

Three hurdle wins at up to 2m7f on good ground; well handicapped on her old form but she missed 2022 and has struggled in both runs this year; hard to know how much ability remains and others are preferred.

Form & Verdict

Won three four-runner chases last summer (2m7f-3m) but has mixed record in his three runs this year and was tailed off in a Perth handicap (3m, good) last month; left Fergal O'Brien since then and has something to prove back over hurdles for new yard; first-time blinkers replace cheekpieces.

Following wind surgery he was close up in a first-time visor at Stratford but his profile is a patchy one and he never looked that interested last time at Market Rasen when the blinkers returned; cheekpieces did nothing for him when tried before.

Following wind surgery he was a close third in a first-time visor at Stratford last month; he's a contender on that form but his profile this year is patchy and he was well beaten at Ayr last time; blinkers return today (no obvious positive effect previously); others are more solid.

Front-running winner at Ayr (3m, soft) in February but the wheels came off with two pulled-up efforts in April and she was laboured at Cartmel (2m6f, good to soft) last month; now only 1lb higher than for last success but she needs a major revival; cheekpieces removed.
