Form & Verdict

Goes well here and gained a third C&D win when getting on top close home three weeks ago; up in class but 3lb rise for that success looks fair and every reason to expect him to be firmly on the premises again.

Veteran who won here (1m6f) five years ago and was in good form over hurdles last summer, winning three times; can go well fresh but is without a win on the Flat since the summer of 2020; others make greater appeal.

Form & Verdict

Has run well in all five starts this summer and has come off second best in tight finishes against two of today's rivals the last twice; stays further so will need a good pace but very likely to be in the shake-up.

Scored five times over hurdles last year; hasn't fared badly since returning to the Flat (turf/AW) but the bare form suggests he'll come up short in this competitive field, back up in grade.

Three novice wins two seasons ago but just three outings last term and unable to add another success; showed that the ability is still there when second at Wincanton in April; wind surgery (third such op) since finishing well beaten at Cheltenham and bit to prove overall.

Has had three wind operations, the latest last May after a poor run at this meeting; won chase debut at Worcester in October and very good second in Grade 2 novice at Wincanton one month later, both at 2m4f, but a nine-day gap before latest start was seemingly insufficient as she ran poorly (2m1f); off 150 days since and needs improvement but could still have more to offer.

Won on chase debut at Worcester (2m4f, good to soft) last month and ran really well when second against males in Grade 2 Rising Stars Novices' Chase at Wincanton (2m4f, good to soft) nine days ago; she should be fine at this shorter trip and she holds leading form claims.

Well beaten at Stratford latest (favourite) but made a bad mistake early in that race and ground also softer than ideal; generally consistent and will go close if able to show her best.

Over 17l behind Gerard Mentor when a weakening eighth at Exeter (2m2f, good to firm; first run after wind op) 12 days ago but didn't run badly there and has become quite well handicapped on his summer form; promising 7lb claimer enlisted today; could have a say.

Pulled up at Cartmel three months ago but had finished runner-up in his two previous starts; last win came in a similar contest over C&D a year ago and that offers hope here, if he can shrug off the latest run.
