Didn't jump great when winning at Southwell (2m, good to soft) but the hot favourite in second was even worse in that department; it could be dodgy form but they did at least pull clear; raised 5lb.

Exploited much reduced mark to make winning stable/chase debut at Worcester (2m, good to soft) last month, coming from off the pace to win by over 4l; went up 8lb for that but still commands respect.

Form & Verdict

Has very modest 1-31 career strike rate (the win gained in 2021) and is not one to rely upon heavily but has made the frame several times over fences since last summer and runs this track well; could have a say.

Form & Verdict

Came good with fairly comfortable success off today's mark at Ludlow (2m, good) in February but subsequent form has been disappointing, and he was about 40l behind Lusitanien at Worcester three weeks ago.

Veteran who is probably best known as a Stratford regular but is also suited by this track; well below best form this season but handicapped accordingly now and recent effort suggest he'll be on the premises.

Unplaced all eight hurdling starts and not seen since a 43l defeat in April; combination of switch to fences and summer wind op needs to enable improvement.
