Form & Verdict

Ex-French; won at York (1m4f, good) last June on sole start in 2022 and has now worked his way back virtually to that form, close second at Chester (1m4f, good) on latest start; more to prove on softer than good, from his French form; unraced beyond 1m4f but it may now be worth a go.

J: Jim Crowley

T: Ian Williams

Ran creditably in defeat in two of his four appearances at this track and although 2m2f seemed too much of a slog here in September, that was on soft ground; good runs at 1m6f either side of that and he kept on well for a narrow 2m win on Newcastle AW on New Year's Day; disappointing on latest start (February) but not out of it on his best AW form.

Third win since joining Ian Williams when edging out stablemate Enemy (pair clear) in 2m Newcastle handicap on New Year's Day; Enemy gave the form a boost when taking a good conditions race at Southwell last week but this 7yo has yet to win back to back.

Form & Verdict

His only handicap win came in the mud at Haydock (1m6f) last July, where he also ran well when tongue tied for the first time on latest start (2m, heavy); his two runs on a sound surface this term (on good to firm here and on good) hint that today's ground may not be soft enough.

Useful on the Flat for William Haggas and was runner-up at Goodwood (1m6f, soft) in August in his final run for that yard; changed hands for 45,000gns in September; stamina won't be an issue at this new discipline and he looks an interesting recruit to hurdling.

Tailed off on heavy going in the November Handicap last term but his big day came on soft at this track last July with a 1m6f win in first-time cheekpieces; first go in the headgear this season saw a good, staying-on fourth in the Northumberland Plate at Newcastle (2m, AW) five weeks ago, before a lesser show in blinkers at Newbury; back to cheekpieces this time, with a tongue-tie added; each-way claims.

Ran well both starts here, in 2021; missed nearly all of last season and not on his A game this term (his only three runs for Tom Dascombe) but still showed something on penultimate start and is now another 3lb lower.

Salisbury last June saw him win his third 1m6f handicap and he's on the same mark today following two further Flat runs last summer and four ordinary shows over hurdles; off since February but ran creditably first time out last Flat season.

Fairly useful on the Flat but 0-6 over hurdles; ran well when fifth on return to this sphere at Taunton (2m, good to soft) last month but was below that form on his latest outing and his stamina heads into unknown territory here; others preferred.

Form & Verdict

Two hurdling wins before he returned to the Flat to complete his hat-trick in good style at Sandown (1m6f, good; not proven on softer) in July; had this 9lb higher mark when well beaten here three weeks ago but the heavy ground must have played a part.

Won three on the bounce earlier this year on good ground (two hurdles here and a Flat handicap) and showed that softer ground holds no fears when looking as though he would win at Sandown before getting outstayed over 2m on heavy; should stay this far under these conditions and this mark isn't beyond him.

Form & Verdict

Three seconds and two thirds from his six runs at Goodwood; no win since May 2022 but good second at Ascot (1m4f) and Goodwood (1m6f; alongside Vaynor) in his first two appearances this season, before something seemed amiss at Newmarket six weeks ago; has a competitive mark if straight back to form and the cheekpieces (which received a positive initial response when fitted in the last two seasons) get their first airing this term.
