Form & Verdict

Came away with a subsequent winner at Ayr before finishing well clear of the rest at odds-on next time; has to prove he can do it on different ground upped 5lb, under a jockey taking his first ride under rules, but he's open to improvement.

J: Luke Morris

Made it 4-6 in handicaps when drawing 27l clear at Ffos Las (1m6f, soft; 10lb higher today) in August, making most in an amateurs' race; failed to replicate that form under a penalty on good ground one week later but he stays at least 2m and a return to soft ground would presumably be a big help.

Fine on any ground and has enjoyed a consistent season, the race not panning out her way at Newbury last time; is the one with the least to prove and it's hard to knock her out of calculations.

J: Olivia Tubb

Won five-runner race at Bath (2m1f) in June under Olivia Tubb; acts on soft (ran once on heavy) but she was beaten 27l on it when runner-up at Ffos Las in August; both subsequent runs also fail to persuade.

Form & Verdict

Below-par on rain-softened ground when chasing a hat-trick this time last year and these conditions would have to be a worry; there's little wiggle room off this mark anyway (3lb higher than when winning on Polytrack three weeks ago).

Was kept to faster surfaces by previous trainers but showed he handles softer fine when pipped on his comeback; below that level since but this is easier than he's used to and the two-month break looks in his favour if anything.

Three AW wins at up to 2m in his Irish days; he used to be useful in that sphere and although he's gone the wrong over the last year, there have been only four runs over hurdles; needs much better than his fourth of seven on handicap hurdle debut (2m; 16-1) last time but this is a longer trip.

These conditions won't pose any problems but he went up in the weights following a good spell in early summer and has never won a handicap off a mark this high; Simon Walker an obvious plus though.
