Form & Verdict

Bumper and two-time novice hurdle winner who has won three-runner novice handicap chases the last twice (1m7f/2m, good); showed promise in soft-ground bumper on debut on sole encounter with a slow surface; this lightly raced 7yo could continue to improve and he's a strong contender.

Form & Verdict

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.

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.

J: Adam Wedge

T: Evan Williams

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.

Form & Verdict

Flat/hurdles winner but the latest was in 2020 and he hasn't shone in those disciplines this year; well beaten when falling three out on chase debut at Southwell 12 days ago and he's hard to fancy.

Form & Verdict

6yo who has dropped down the weights and could benefit from the drop back in trip on his third start for this yard; however, he's a 17-race maiden and it's hard to be confident about his claims.

Disappointing maiden who hasn't shown a great deal since joining Micky Hammond in the summer; today's less-testing ground may enable him to better his recent efforts but others appeal more all the same.
