Form & Verdict

Four-time winner over hurdles and has finished runner-up in two small-field handicaps over fences, last time here looking sure to win only to be headed late on; returns off an untouched mark and going back over further shouldn't be too big an issue.

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

Placed in points but very minor hurdle form and was tailed off on chase debut at Worcester in June (2m4f handicap); competing here from 24lb out of the weights.

Seemed to excel himself when second of three from a long way out of the handicap at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good) last month but was grossly flattered by his proximity to idling winner and the form looks somewhat dubious; soundly beaten off correct mark since; others preferred.

24lb out of the weights when running surprisingly well at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good) last week, though only three ran and the chances are the bare form flatters him; this should confirm one way or another, but he's 19lb lower this time so has to be taken seriously.

Form & Verdict

Fell mid-race when trying fences once before last summer; has come back well to win his last two over hurdles, latterly a 2m4f Ffos Las handicap when posting an RPR not far shy of his career bests; 6lb higher for this but obvious claims with a clear round.

Made very bright start to career in bumpers in autumn 2019 but lightly raced since and hasn't fulfilled his potential over hurdles; justified short odds in run-of-the-mill Fontwell maiden (2m3f, good) in October but has a lot more on his plate on this return to handicap company.

Won here in a bumper on debut in October 2019; pretty useful form in several hurdle races but surprising went until last month before his first hurdles win, in a six-runner maiden at Fontwell (2m3f); has a bit to prove over this far and more if judged on this autumn's form.
