Form & Verdict

Had Champ De Gane 13l behind when second to the prolific Al Zaraqaan (has won next three) at Cartmel in May, and has scored twice at Uttoxeter himself since (heavy, good), enjoying chasing the leader each time; still not entirely foot-perfect, but case strong despite another 4lb rise.

Won four small-field chases last summer, two over this C&D, the second on soft ground in September; could go well but went up 20lb for his wins and no easy task on return from break.

Form & Verdict

Has set or equalled peak RPRs over both hurdles and fences in 2m4f Perth contests latterly, albeit his C&D chase second off this mark in July (good) featured jumping errors and a refusal to settle; weighted to reverse Cartmel form with A Different Kind, though 0-16 record is offputting.

J: Daryl Jacob

T: S R B Crawford

0-5 over hurdles and 0-15 overall but recent efforts over fences have been perfectly respectable, and he matched his best RPR (124) when second here (2m4f, good) last month; won't mind if there's rain about and has good chance at the weights on this return to hurdling.

Form & Verdict

Easily dealt with by A Different Kind at Uttoxeter latest (2m4f, heavy), having ensured a solid test over a trip at the bottom end of his range; could do with jumping a bit better if he's to make the 11lb swing count, though the new headgear combination may help in that regard.

J: Paddy Brennan

Won three times over hurdles for Jessica Harrington including the 2020 Pertemps Qualifier at Warwick (3m, soft); not so good in three runs over fences, the latest on second outing for this yard at Leicester in December (2m4f, good); has since had wind surgery and now tried in a tongue tie.

Form & Verdict

Luckless second in a Punchestown hurdle series final in April, but strike-rate is basically disappointing for one of his ability and includes a 0-7 return over fences; drop back to 2m4f is a plus, at least.

Easily his best run for this yard was his first when runner-up in a big field at last year's Punchestown festival; hasn't been threatening a return to that form and remains best watched.
