Form & Verdict

Free-goer who looked suited by return to front-running tactics and ran game race when second at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good to soft) on latest hurdling start in February; not an easy horse to predict but will take some catching if he gets into a good jumping rhythm on his chasing debut.

J: James Best

T: Sarah Humphrey

One-dimensional front-runner who has yet to finish outside the top two in his five starts over fences; effective on soft ground but it was good going and the trip was 2m4f when hammering the Turners third Djelo in the Grade 1 Scilly Isles at Sandown last time, and that was after getting left behind by Master Chewy at Kempton (2m, good to soft); he'll probably be in front for a large portion of this race but staying there could be challenging.

Early chase starts at about 2m4f have been marked by bold jumping from the front, including in handicaps first two occasions; found only Hermes Allen too good last time, showing good attitude; drop in trip ought to be fine for one with so much enthusiasm and he is the one to beat on form.

Lightly raced 7yo who won Taunton bumper (good to firm) and Ascot novice hurdle (1m7f, soft) in 2021; not seen since rather disappointing handicap hurdle debut in December 2022 but still has plenty of time to get his career back on track; makes chasing debut today.

Novice who progressed nicely towards end of last year and bounced back from Doncaster flop when clear second in Newbury handicap (2m4f, heavy) last month behind course specialist Heltenham, who followed up there since; 2lb rise could prove lenient and this improving 8yo is firmly in calculations.

Not out of the first two in any of his four chases and beat a good yardstick in a 2m4f handicap at Newbury (good to soft); coped well with the step up to Grade 2 level at Ascot last time when going right handed didn't look ideal (jumped out to the left at times); has stamina to prove but remains lightly raced for his top yard and hard to rule out.

Quirky customer who tends to idle when in front and had almost stopped to a walk before holding on to win three-runner chase at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good) last month; remains on a workable mark, though, and can make his presence felt; has had wind surgery since last time.

Absent since running an inexplicably bad race at Kempton on Boxing Day (2m4f, good; 7-2); that was only his third run over fences and he merely had to be pushed out to win comfortably over this far on the Old course here the time before (good; off 7lb lower); placed in a Grade 1 novice as a hurdler and could be better handicapped than a lot of these.
