Form & Verdict

2-2 in bumpers and 3-8 over hurdles but he's been held in his three chase runs and was behind Any News at Uttoxeter (2m5f, good) last month; still early days in this sphere but has bit to prove and all of his hurdle wins were over 2m4f.

Having been chasing last season he returned from a break and reverted to hurdles at Cheltenham (3m, good) last month, finishing a good fourth behind Zain Nights and Harbour Lake; each-way claims off the same mark.

Off the mark over fences at the fourth attempt when winning easily at Bangor (3m, good) and, following an 8lb rise, he bumped into a smart chasing recruit at Chepstow (2m7f, good to soft); given a further 2lb nudge for that but easy to see him running well.

Form & Verdict

Five-time hurdle winner at up to 3m and he went very close in that sphere at Cartmel (2m6f) last month; 4lb higher on this switch to fences but he's a half-brother to two useful chasers and is respected; all of his runs have been on good or slower ground.

Bumper and hurdle winner but he's 0-10 over fences; returned from a short break with a good second at Uttoxeter (2m5f, good) 22 days ago but this looks tougher off 1lb higher and he still has stamina to prove at this trip; others look stronger

Won at Worcester, Wetherby (walked over) and Exeter in the autumn, from 15 starts in total over fences; unraced beyond 3m but stayed on gamely to take 11-runner race over that trip (good) last time and this distance looks worth a go; 5lb higher today but has gone well on occasions after a layoff and needs plenty of respect.

Walked over last week at Wetherby; the ground was too soft the time before and he had previously opened his account over fences by 10l in a small field at Worcester (2m7f, good; 6lb lower); consistency is not his forte.

Belatedly opened account over fences with 10l success at Worcester (2m7f, good) last month and remains well handicapped on older form; subsequent defeat on soft ground should not be viewed too harshly; sets his rival a good standard of chasing form.

Form & Verdict

Sole hurdle win was in a 2m4f maiden (good to soft) in October 2021; has had only two runs over fences but he didn't get very far at Worcester (unseated) in June and was well behind two of today's rivals at Uttoxeter last time; dropped 3lb but he needs to significantly raise his game.

Has yet to win a handicap but he's well treated on some efforts, notably a Kempton second (2m5f, soft) 12 months ago off a 12lb higher mark; stable still not out of the woods after their recent troubles but he's hard to discount.

Kempton second (2m5f, soft) last March was one of his peak efforts; 10lb lower today, having failed to fire in the same way this season (over fences initially); back hurdling on last three starts, best of those on second occasion; place chance but others are more convincing for the win.

Has got himself well handicapped again after a downturn in his fortunes and there were positives to take from his 7l third over C&D last month when Lily Jones was aboard; the cheekpieces seem to be having a positive effect; possibilities.

Form & Verdict

Left Nicky Henderson after a disappointing run in the autumn but he's 3-3 for new stable this season and had plenty in hand at Newton Abbot (3m2f, good) last month; 6lb rise for that success looks fair and he's open to more progress over fences; major player.
