Form & Verdict

Won twice on good ground in the spring (2m7f/3m1f) and both runs on heavy and soft ground at Cartmel this summer (2m6f/3m1f) were perfectly respectable; current mark probably demands a career-best performance but the added cheekpieces might squeeze out something extra.

Well beaten over C&D (soft) last time; he can be effective on soft/heavy going but better ground may be preferable and he's very much of interest on his fine efforts last autumn, when winning at Kelso (3m2f, good) and finishing second of 20 at Cheltenham (3m, good to soft); on the shortlist.

Last three wins on good ground but has won on soft and heavy; off 12 weeks, creditable fifth of ten at Newbury (3m, heavy) in February, fading only from the last; the cheekpieces he wore to good effect in the autumn return now and his yard's good record in this affords him plenty of respect.

Form & Verdict

Has very mixed record this year but has won two hurdle races, coming from a long way off the pace on both occasions; reeled in Dinoland quite stylishly at Perth (3m, good to soft) six weeks ago but it's hard to tell whether everything will pan out favourably here.

Given an excellent ride by Patrick Wadge to win at Ayr (3m, soft) three weeks ago in a peculiar race (big early gaps); this 10yo is on a career-high mark now back against males but a strongly run race in a big field should be right up her street and she's also effective on good going; respected.

Won at Perth (3m, good to soft) last August and, after a break, kept on for good third here (2m5f, good) last month; the step back up in trip is a plus and she could be in the mix if conditions suit (ran okay in a bumper on soft in 2019; all starts since on good to soft or faster).

No win since scoring over hurdles here (2m4f, Class 2; from 9lb higher) in March 2022; could strip fitter for recent comeback run (Warwick), while the switch back to fences for the first time in 13 months could potentially rekindle a spark; one to consider.

2-2 in hunter chases at Ludlow this year (3m/2m4f; soft) and he predictably found it hard work in the Foxhunters' at Aintree the final time; this isn't quite so demanding but he's relying on some of these being off their game.

The winner of two small-field hunter chases at Ludlow this year, latterly proving too strong for Espoir De Guye; that form, and the balance of his handicap exploits during the past 12 months, strongly hints at limitations at this level.

Led close home to end losing run at Cartmel (2m6f, good to soft) in July and a subsequent lesser effort on heavy ground there is not viewed harshly; not yet fully exposed over staying trips and current mark ought to be workable; might be the answer.
