Form & Verdict

Beat Dindin at Stratford in August and has performed well in three subsequent efforts; as likely as any to give his running but just 1-25 in his career, which sounds a warning note.

Three chase wins this season, the latest gained at Taunton (2m7f, good to soft) last month; held narrow advantage before penultimate-fence fall at Ludlow (3m, good to soft) 16 days ago and might still be improving; not yet proven on heavy ground but handles soft well; respected.

Improved his chase record to 2-9 when scoring at Bangor (3m, soft) last month but he couldn't make a serious impact off this revised mark at Stratford (2m6f, soft) last time; now goes back up in trip but he looks weighted near his best and others look stronger.

Badly out of form in last two starts but has bounced back from similar efforts before; 3-35 in Britain and this hardy performer can never be ruled out with total confidence.

Not the easiest to predict (to put it mildly) but had one of his good days when runner-up over 2m7f here last month (under Gearoid Harney); whether he'll repeat it is another matter and stamina for this far isn't entirely copperbottomed.

Came good over fences at fourth attempt, at Southwell (3m, heavy) in February, but was not seen to quite the same effect when well-held third on last two outings and would appeal more on slower ground.

Stayed on to break his chase duck at the fourth attempt at Southwell (3m, heavy) only to then finish a remote third at Wincanton; that was very laboured but if bouncing back he'd have a chance.

Beaten a long way in all completed starts, apart from her sixth over hurdles here two outings ago; 6lb out of the handicap on chasing debut and will need to benefit a lot from the switch to fences.

Form & Verdict

Won three of his first four starts over fences, in the second half of 2021; absent since a Southwell third in March 2022 but has landed on a modest race for his comeback; cheekpieces replace a visor (which worked well) and market support would obviously heighten interest.

Won three chases in 2021 (2m7f-3m1f) but has very mixed record since returning from long absence in the autumn; still in touch when stumbling on home turn at Plumpton six weeks ago but others in this line-up have more persuasive profles; swaps visor for first-time blinkers.

Form & Verdict

Two Ffos Las wins in the summer, when cheekpieces were refitted; not really kicked on from those but possible he could do so if blinkers have a positive effect; has won on good to soft ground; chances.

No model of consistency but has won twice over fences; both of those came off the back of heavy defeats so his lack of recent form may not be a severe barrier to success; still risky, however.

C&D winner last September and went in again at Warwick in May; rather typical of him to lose his form but returning from a two-month break could help as seems to go well when fresh.

Not the easiest to predict and both wins have come at further; going well in the lead over 2m7f here two weeks ago but a slow jump four out saw him quickly beaten; perhaps the drop to this trip will work, therefore.
