Form & Verdict

Off the mark over fences at the 12th attempt at Worcester in June (hooded for first time); last of three over C&D next time and, while he should run well, looks vulnerable to an improver.

Won twice over fences last summer, but held on his return to the Flat after 193 days off here (1m4f) 11 days ago; may have needed it, but still has enough to prove.

J: Callum Hutchinson

T: Anthony Charlton

Useful jumper who won 2m handicap chases at Worcester and Newton Abbot last summer; well beaten in an AW Flat handicap at the start of 2023 but he was quite useful in this sphere at the start of his career, including an AW novice win; possible he'll be using this a prep for a return to jumps but betting perhaps the best guide to expectations.

J: Harry Reed

T: Milton Harris

Took a while to open his account over fences but has bagged two four-runner chases this summer, latterly over C&D (good) 11 days ago despite almost refusing to race and giving the others a big headstart; not without risk, but a 1lb rise ought to be manageable if he gets away on terms today.

Form & Verdict

Four hurdle wins and ran well when second to a progressive winner on last month's chasing debut at Southwell; good and quicker ground ideal and repeat of that initial effort over fences gives him leading claims.

J: Paddy Brennan

T: Fergal O’Brien

Quirky customer who tends to idle when in front and had almost stopped to a walk before holding on to win three-runner chase at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good) last month; remains on a workable mark, though, and can make his presence felt; has had wind surgery since last time.

Form & Verdict

Well beaten all three starts for Evan Williams, the latest pair in chases; dropping in the handicap and this 5yo is likely to revive at some stage but clearly needs to step up considerably on recent efforts.

Triple point winner in 2022 and held on for modest third on stable/hurdle debut at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good) last summer; safely held in two handicap chases in August, though, and not sure to be suited by the slow ground on this first start for six months.
