Progressive 5yo who doubled his tally for the season when rallying well for Cameron Iles at Worcester (2m, good to soft; first-time tongue-tie) last month; could still have more to offer; respected.

Form & Verdict

Signed off with career-best performance in May, winning by over 4l at Ffos Las (2m4f, soft); further progress is possible but he might find 2m on good ground a bit sharp on this reappearance outing.

Won a division of this race a year ago (soft ground) and has finished second five times over hurdles/fences since but suffered a worrying dip in form on his two outings last month and now has a point to prove.

0-7 since switched to fences in November but he's had some close calls at around 2m3f; disappointing at Chepstow last time and now switches back to hurdling but he won over C&D last spring and he seems versatile ground-wise; not ruled out.

Form & Verdict

Off the mark over hurdles at fifth attempt, keeping on strongly for clearcut success at Stratford (2m, good) last month; 5lb rise does not look excessive and he could easily have more improvement to come.

J: Ellis Collier

Flat bred but jumped fine bar one early blemish on this month's Hereford chasing debut, just finding the near-2m5f too far; drop in trip and from 0-120 both rate positives; yard had a winner here last week.

Form & Verdict

Pulled up on handicap debut at Newton Abbot in June but is 2-2 over C&D (good/good to soft) since, the latter win gained under Thomasina Eyston; might still be improving; must be considered.

Form & Verdict

Quirky customer who sometimes races too freely and is usually ridden very patiently; won four times in 2022 but has been out of form this year (four runs) and needs last month's wind op to aid a revival.

Form & Verdict

Struggled on last month's handicap hurdle debut at Bangor but came from behind to cause 33-1 surprise there (2m, good) a fortnight later, albeit in rather messy finish involving five horses in a bunch; only 2lb higher here and remains lightly raced over hurdles.
