11st 5lb

J: Robert Williams

T: Bernard Llewellyn

Has pretty good 6-25 strike-rate over hurdles (includes a C&D win) and was not beaten far when sixth on slower-than-ideal ground last month, after a break; current mark is workable; contender if that recent outing has brought him on.

Improved to win quite comfortably at Uttoxeter (2m, good) in May, his sixth start over hurdles, and finished second on both subsequent outings; lost out only narrowly to Sassified over C&D two runs ago; ought to be right in the thick of things again.

Quickened clear to win readily over C&D (good) in June but safely held off revised mark twice since; recent 2lb drop helps and Sam Twiston Davies is back on board for first time since that latest success but he may remain a shade vulnerable nevertheless.

J: George Downing

T: Seamus Mullins

Last raced on the Flat in 2022, when seen to best effect over 2m on AW; while there have been two wins over hurdles since, his latest start in that sphere (last October) was a heavy defeat and there is a great deal for him to prove on ground softer than good.

Strong-travelling mare who is usually ridden very patiently; unseated rider when last in action but was placed off today's mark over C&D (good) two starts ago and Sean Bowen knows how to win on her.

Consistent dual purpose mare who was probably not ideally suited by the good to soft ground when respectable fourth at Stratford (2m) last month; on a good mark now and can go well if the rain stays away; usual tongue-tie removed.
