Form & Verdict

All five hurdle wins gained at Hexham; can run well elsewhere, as he showed when beaten 4l by Bucko's Boy at Stratford last month (in trouble some way out but stuck to his task well); should play a part.

Form & Verdict

Proving to be a good advert for wind surgery as he is unbeaten in two outings since undergoing a procedure in May; pulled out plenty to win at Stratford latest and 4lb rise fair; strong claims in the hat-trick bid.

Form figures of 112 since undergoing wind surgery, just repelling Thirtyfourstitches at Stratford (2m6f, good to soft) before being put in his place off this 4lb higher mark at Kelso (2m5f); that's probably a fair reflection of where he is right now; perhaps vulnerable.

Form & Verdict

Has spent most of the last two years over fences; put up a fine display back hurdling to win at Newton Abbot this month, after six months off; 6lb higher but may well prove up to it, especially if the ground is good.

Has been proving disappointing in this yard but drop in grade saw him revive with narrow Hexham win two weeks ago (40-1); 3lb rise of less concern than tackling tougher opposition but still hard to rule out.

Cashed in on a much reduced mark when a 40-1 winner at Hexham (2m4f, good) in September, but he struggled in his final two runs (hurdle/chase) in the autumn; handles most ground but he needs a major revival back over hurdles after four months off; cheekpieces removed.

Second in this last year (good) and he capitalised on his much-reduced mark at Hexham (2m4f, good) last month; however, this 10yo has struggled more often than not over the last 12 months and was well beaten at Kelso (2m5f, good) last time; others are more solid.

Form & Verdict

Four wins for Gavin Cromwell in Ireland but none since August 2021 and his two hurdle victories came in 2019; out of sorts in recent starts and possibly best watched on debut for Ben Haslam.
