Form & Verdict

Won seasonal/handicap debut at Windsor (11.4f, good to firm) in May; better form when close up at Sandown (1m6f, soft) and Wolverhampton (1m6f, AW) on last two outings; worth a go at 2m and in the first-time headgear; one to consider.

Wore cheekpieces the last twice, winning at Chester (2m, good to soft) then disappointing returned to AW; headgear now removed; remains unexposed at this trip and may have more to offer back on turf.

1m3f winner earlier this year and doubled his tally last week at Chester (first run over 2m and in cheekpieces) when benefitting from a good ride by Darragh Keenan who gradually wound things up at the head of affairs; won only narrowly but with a bit in hand and likely to try something similar here off a 4lb higher mark.

Form & Verdict

His latest wins were in novice hurdles two seasons back but he has a good record at Chester, including with places on soft ground on his two visits this year (2m2f and 1m6f); switched from cheekpieces to a visor when second here on latest start; should be bang there again.

Gained his reward for a string of consistent performances when off the mark at the 11th attempt, over 2m on Kempton AW in June; bled from the nose when respectable fifth there on latest outing; has since left Richard Hughes for £33,000; more to prove on testing ground but his best runs hinted at better.

Below form sole start here, when upped to 2m last September on latest Flat outing (yard debut); 80-1 win on handicap hurdle debut at Doncaster (2m3f, good to soft) in December, followed by two respectable efforts but he was soundly beaten on latest start; others are a bit more persuasive.

Form & Verdict

His last Flat run was two years ago; resumes off a career-low mark and although he was still capable of significant form over hurdles late last year, this 10yo has had heavy defeats in his two hurdle runs in 2023.

Form & Verdict

Returned to turf last month on a good mark and made the most of it at Beverley (2m, good) six days ago, winning well but in only a five-runner race; has 5lb penalty and it has to be concerning that she was tailed off in her only two outings (including penultimate start) on softer than good.

0-7 for Ralph Beckett, best effort when second at Salisbury; has failed to transfer that form to hurdles for new yard; chance of winning partly depends on how well he takes to new scenario (AW debut).
