Form & Verdict

Initially disappointing for new stable this season but won his last two over C&D (good/soft); today's race is much more competitive but he remains very well handicapped on some of last year's form for Jonjo O'Neill.

Rejuvenated 8yo who won three in a row at Perth (3m, good-heavy) in August/September and has continued in fine form to finish second at Carlisle (3m/3m2f, soft) the last twice; continues to climb the weights (up 2lb since last time) but he's clearly thriving and could be in the mix.

Thorough stayer who is getting long in the tooth now but looked as good as ever when completing a hat-trick in February/March (2m7½f-3m2f); not seen since pulled up here in April, though, and his usual cheekpieces are missing today.

6-6 over hurdles/fences for Iain Jardine this season, with most notable success coming from a long way off the pace in Summer Plate at Market Rasen (2m5f, soft); also very well suited by this track and Harry Cobden (aboard the last twice) keeps the ride for today's first start back with Claire O'Connell

Five wins from five starts since joining Iain Jardine, the first off 21lb lower over C&D (soft) and the latest the valuable Summer Plate over fences off 4lb lower at Market Rasen (2m5f, soft); should go very well again.

Ex-Irish mare who is 4-4 for new stable this year, alternating between hurdling and chasing; carries 5lb penalty for beating only two rivals at Perth (2m4f, soft) on Sunday and is 1lb out of the weights here but is evidently in prime form.

Form & Verdict

Won three-runner C&D event for Gordon Elliott in May (good ground) and has performed pretty well on all three starts for new stable, most recently when third at Cartmel (3m1f, good to soft) last month; probably still on a workable mark and the forecast soft ground will suit; shortlisted.

Placed in Grade 1 novice hurdle at 2022 Aintree festival (3m, good to soft); arguably a shade disappointing over fences last season but won mares' novice at Warwick (2m4f, soft) in March and was third in a C&D Listed race in April; still only a 6yo and might kick on this term.

Had given some indications that a long-distance challenge might suit and, in a first-time tongue-tie after wind surgery, she was only 4l away over 3m5f at Bangor two months ago (heavy; Duke Of Deception runner-up); this now looks the way forward with her; respected.

Chase win last March was over 2m4f but she's a stout stayer; not yet lived up to her hurdle promise since chasing but still has potential, dropped 5lb since her first completion this winter, and in a lower grade.
