Form & Verdict

Dual course winner over fences for new stable this summer (2m5f/3m2f) and very respectable fourth in competitive Class 3 event on latest outing; seems versatile regarding ground and needs to be taken very seriously off her lower hurdle mark.

J: Isabel Williams

T: Evan Williams

Ex-pointer who won a hunter chase and two Newton Abbot handicap chases (2m5f/3m2f) last spring/summer but seems to have lost her way since the autumn; getting back on decent ground will probably aid her cause but she still has a lot to prove, and cheekpieces didn't do much for her when used two starts ago.

A two-time chase scorer at Newton Abbot last summer but her more recent efforts have been far less encouraging, tried in cheekpieces when beating only one at Musselburgh (3m) four weeks ago; she's not easy to make a case for.

Form & Verdict

Dual course winner over 2m2f last year and returns here after making the frame in two 2m7f races at Worcester (soft/good) this summer; won't be far away if stamina holds out over this trip.

J: Philip Armson

T: Alexandra Dunn

Two Newton Abbot wins in May 2022; winless since but mostly holding form of late, and hurdles form here reads 222P24; unable to defy Flat breeding when last tried over fences in late 2021, jumping poorly.

6 yo Gelding

OR: 101

Form & Verdict

Last of four on recent chasing debut and now quickly switched back to hurdling; may not have much margin for error off current mark but won twice in the spring (2m6f/3m2f) and seems pretty versatile regarding ground; could have a say.

Placed over hurdles at Plumpton (3m1f, good) last month, after a break, and is now 2lb lower than when second in Wincanton chase (3m1f, good) in the autumn; well beaten when back over fences there recently, though, and now has a point to prove; swaps cheekpieces for refitted visor.

9 yo Gelding

OR: 104

Form & Verdict

Struck form and won consecutive 2m5f races (both on good) in February/March but seems badly to have lost his way since, and the ground is probably not in his favour on this first venture beyond 3m.

Form & Verdict

Quirky customer who often looks reluctant to jump off and/or races lazily; suited by this C&D and on a workable mark but comes with significant risk, and has done all his winning on good/good to firm ground.
