Form & Verdict

Very consistent over hurdles this summer and deserved his narrow C&D win 20 days ago (first two clear); 4lb rise of less concern than the stronger company he's facing this time and he is just 2-32 in this discipline.

Often leads; an 11yo who has still won six of his last nine races (all staying handicap hurdles) but he bled from the nose when pulled up behind Gwennie May Boy at Uttoxeter last time and this race looks too hot.

Often leads; some feat for an 11yo to have won six of his last eight starts (all staying handicap hurdles) and at his best in the mud, as he showed with an ultra-game defeat of Supremely West at Chepstow three weeks ago; has earned his career-high mark (up 7lb for last time) and there's no knocking him.

Often leads; five wins last August-December, the last of which was over C&D (soft) at Christmas; up a further 7lb to another career-high mark at Huntingdon (good to soft) one month ago when that superb sequence came to an end and the scale of his defeat was concerning; needs to bounce back with another career best, aged 11.

Only win came in an Irish maiden hurdle in May 2021; showed enough on recent stable debut in a much better race at Newton Abbot to suggest that James Owen might be able to find the key; could well figure.

Much improved in recent starts; scrambled home at Market Rasen in July and ran at least as well when third at Cartmel last month (2m6f, soft); same mark and reasonable to expect him to play a prominent part.

Ex-Irish 7yo who has some fairly useful form on his CV but started off for Jennie Candlish with two very underwhelming chase runs this summer; not an easy horse to weigh up at present but drops in grade for today's hurdling return and enters calculations; refitted cheekpieces replace visor.

W: 12st 1lb

6 yo Gelding

OR: 109

Form & Verdict

Probably not the most straightforward and can throw in the occasional poor run, as he did two starts ago; for all that, he's won two of his last three, most recently when staying on strongly over C&D six days ago; 7lb penalty for that but impossible to rule out if he's on song again.

Runner-up in two of his first three handicaps before winning one at Uttoxeter (2m7f, good to soft) on latest outing, about to be challenged by Broomfields Cave when that rival fell at the last; up 5lb whereas Broomfields Cave has gone up 4lb; firmly in the mix.
