J: Georgia Dobie

T: Eve Johnson Houghton

Stoutly bred gelding who took a big step forward from his low-key debut when leading close home for narrow win at Southwell (1m3f) in September; probably needs to improve again to defy 5lb penalty here but the extra furlong is likely to suit.

Fourth foal; half-brother to 11.5f/1m4f winner Kirkland Forever (RPR 73); dam tough 1m4f-2m1f winner (86), half-sister to fairly useful 1m4f winner April Stock, 1m4f-2m Flat/3m hurdle winner Chris's Lad and 2m6f hurdle winner Throwaline; this looks a tough starting point and he could be one for later on.

T: Marcus Tregoning

Twice beaten as favourite last autumn and was well below market expectations on her seasonal/handicap debut recently; she pulled hard over 1m2f, however, and this drop back in trip in a first-time hood ought to help; still has a bit of potential.

Best so far given 7f-1m on good; must hope a poor handicap debut was owed to soft ground rather than the 1m2f trip, and winners among siblings, notably one on Polytrack at up to 1m3f, offer hope on that score.

Broadly consistent rather than progressive in 2023, regardless of trip and surface type; doing best work late on upped to 2m in a Ripon handicap latest, so drop back 5f not an obvious plus; cheekpieces added.

Inconsistent gelding (stays 2m) who's done better over C&D the past twice since switched to a visor; holds claims on his latest third but is still to win and it's unlikely he'd want a tactical affair (this isn't overloaded with pace).

Inauspicious hurdling debut at the end of July, and there's nothing to lose in switching codes for now, being a son of a 1m5f/1m6f Flat winner from the family of Footstepsinthesand and Mahler; check market.
