Form & Verdict

Turf and triple AW winner at up to 2m; losing run is up to 12 but he bounced back with a close third in a big field over C&D last time; nudged up 2lb but he remains well treated on old form and is respected on this drop back in grade.

Eight-race maiden but he's run several good races in middle-distance handicaps including when third at Newbury (1m2f, good to soft) three weeks ago; now steps up to 2m but he has shaped like a stayer at times and is not ruled out.

Has won on the Flat (9.4f, Tapeta) and over hurdles (2m, good) this year and things didn't really go his way when fourth at Yarmouth (11.4f, good) last time; this is a different test back on AW but he still has potential and could make a serious impact if he copes with this trip.

Ordinary Flat performer who has taken well to hurdling, winning at Hexham in June (2m, good) on debut before finishing runner-up at Newton Abbot and in a handicap at Stratford; has since been bought out Alan King's yard for £9,000; quite interesting on first run for new yard.

Four-time AW winner who has been back in good form on turf recently, with a Nottingham win and a third at Yarmouth (both at 1m2f on good); takes a big step back up in trip but he's a versatile type who went close over 2m on Polytrack in February; shortlisted.

Acts well in the mud so his handicap debut on heavy ground at Chepstow was disappointing; put the record straight when coming clear with an unexposed winner over 2m4f here 19 days ago; has gone up 6lb and this Flat-bred's ability to cope with fences has to be taken on trust on chase debut.
