Knocking at the door over 1m2f/1m3f this summer, including here; form dipped over C&D latest but is interesting with Hollie Doyle back on board; sole start under this rider resulted in Ayr win (7f, heavy) last October.

He could do with jumping with greater fluency and better could have been expected at Wetherby last month (2m, soft; suffered from post-race heat-stress) but prior to that this three-time Flat winner was a promising third on hurdle debut at Ayr (2m, soft), form which makes him a leading player.

Operated at lowly level on Flat for Jim Goldie but found improvement to win two in a row this autumn (1m1f/1m4f, good to soft/soft; fair form) and it will be no surprise to see a good run on this stable debut; one of three for yard.

In-form 8yo who scored in higher grade at Pontefract (1m, good to soft) on Thursday; judged on peak RPRs he's still favourably treated even with a 4lb penalty; major player, provided he stays the extra furlong.

Multiple turf winner but 0-16 on the AW so recent defeats over 7f on sand, although they haven't been too serious, shouldn't be taken as evidence of a decline; has won on soft and now 2lb lower than a 1m Pontefract win in September so has possibilities back at this trip.

Multiple winner on Flat and over hurdles; however, does not look solid on 2023 form and this big drop back in trip isn't sure to help; never figured when joint-favourite over 1m6f last time.

Held back by slow starts on the Flat this summer and hasn't taken to fences this month, following a less-than-fluent round of jumping on his first attempt at Sedgefield by refusing at Carlisle; wouldn't be a shock if he revived back hurdling (very well treated on his best form) but he's not that convincing at present.

Didn't run badly when 16l third of five on recent chasing debut at Sedgefield (2m5f, good), and there's room for improvement; his mark continues to edge downwards and he's won twice here on the Flat, but he's perhaps best watched until showing greater proficiency in the jumping department.
