Form & Verdict

Made the frame in two 2m handicap hurdles at Perth (soft/good) for Janes Ewart in summer 2021 and, following a long absence, was not disgraced when fifth of seven for new stable at Worcester (2m, good to soft) last month; 3lb wrong here but can do better if his jumping is more fluent this time.

Took well to chasing in the autumn, notably when scoring by 9l at Lingfield (2m, good to soft), and switches back to fences after winning a selling hurdle last month; needs to prove he can cope with a mark his high but will be fine over today's trip.

Tailed off in Uttoxeter handicap in January last time out but perhaps the heavy ground didn't suit; won a selling handicap hurdle (2m2f, soft) and a handicap chase (2m, good to soft) towards end of last year and he's a leading contender today if back on song.

Dual 2m4f hurdle winner (good/soft) for Dianne Sayer last year and placed on the Flat for that stable this summer; safely held on the Flat for new trainer last month but still appeals more than some of these.

Stayed on past Peaceful Sunday for modest third in this grade at Stratford (2m2f, good) last month; much worse off with that rival from further out of the weights here and would probably be better suited by good ground but still considered each-way.

Kept on for modest third from out of the weights in two selling handicaps in recent weeks, more recently on slower-than-ideal ground at Newton Abbot (2m2f, soft); that form isn't anything to get excited about but she's 14lb lower off her correct mark here.

Form & Verdict

Soft-ground hurdle winner in Ireland; not firing on all cylinders for new stable this season but ran better than eventual 19l defeat might suggest when fourth in this grade at Stratford (2m2f, good) last month and is 9lb lower now; tongue-tie added.

Ex-Irish 7yo who has some fairly useful form on his CV but started off for Jennie Candlish with two very underwhelming chase runs this summer; not an easy horse to weigh up at present but drops in grade for today's hurdling return and enters calculations; refitted cheekpieces replace visor.

Form & Verdict

Won Huntingdon maiden (2m, good) in May and next two hurdle runs were perfectly respectable but he flopped when odds-on for modest seller in July and has since been soundly beaten on the Flat; comes here with a point to prove; has form on good to soft ground but probably prefers good.

Form & Verdict

Inconsistent and regressive over hurdles and on the Flat; ran poorly (on the Flat) on latest outing six weeks ago but probably retains enough ability to be competitive in this grade if in the right mood; raced mainly on good ground but was placed on soft last year; 2lb out of the weights.

J: Tom Queally

Flat (1m4f, AW) and hurdle winner (2m, good); struggled under both codes in first three runs after a lengthy absence, but he showed signs of a revival with his 4l fourth at Salisbury (1m6f, good) last week; that was behind two progressive 3yos and has claims if he can back that up.

Form & Verdict

Still in contention when unluckily carried out in closing stages of stable/handicap hurdle debut at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good) in July but has suffered an alarming dip in form since and ideally needs the ground to dry out here.
