Form & Verdict

Eight-time winner over fences but has regressed since last summer and weakened into fourth after making the running here (2m5f, good) at end of July; will be fine over today's shorter trip but is 4lb out of the weights and needs recent wind op to have made a difference.

Not the easiest to predict but it was career win number nine when returning from wind surgery with a narrow success over Romanor at Newton Abbot (2m, good; fine over this far); Worcester was underwhelming, for all that he was a shade out of the weights.

Form & Verdict

Three-time course winner, including this race 12 months ago; on a good mark (even from 4lb out of the weights) but ran poorly over 2m5f here recently and it's hard to predict what sort of mood he'll be in today; usually seen to best effect when ridden patiently in a strongly run race.

Should get some pace to come off, and both mark (5lb below his last winning one) and ground are perfect; absence since October is a concern, however, given all ten wins have come after breaks of six weeks or fewer.

Has excellent 6-9 strike-rate over fences and looked in career-best form when making all to score pretty comfortably by nearly 5l at Bangor (2m1f, good) 12 days ago; must be considered in current mood.

Has excellent 6-10 strike-rate over fences and looked in career-best form when making all to score comfortably by nearly 5l at Bangor (2m1f, good) in August; couldn't finish the job in small field at Newton Abbot last month, though, and will need to find hidden reserves to overcome current mark.

Won three chases in the spring before his good second of four behind Stepney Causeway off today's mark at Worcester (2m, good) in June; needs to bounce back from a below-par run in July but still enters calculations.

Form & Verdict

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.

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.
