Form & Verdict

Fair third over fences in September 2022 and he's 3lb lower than when winning over hurdles this June; however, he struggled over fences next time and it's been the same story back over hurdles the last twice; both wins have come on good ground; has something to prove.

Both hurdle wins on good ground but showed he could get it done on soft when winning a five-runner handicap chase at Hexham (3m) 16 days ago; the third there has won since and a 4lb rise isn't excessive; one to consider.

Form & Verdict

Won two in a row in May (good to soft/good; including C&D); hasn't been at his very best more recently but he didn't run badly when third at Cartmel (3m1f, soft) two starts ago and is not ruled out in a weak race.

Runner-up on first three chase starts (2m5f/3m2f, good/good to soft) before narrowly making all under Harriet Tucker in four-runner race at Newton Abbot (3m2f, heavy) a fortnight ago; just 1lb higher and leading player in this modest contest.

Has run well in all five chases, winning very narrowly at Newton Abbot (3m2f, heavy) on penultimate start; perhaps a little beneath that level when third at Hexham on latest, with that stiff track finding her out.

0-17 under all codes but hasn't been with Ella Pickard long and has finished second in three recent chases; lost out only narrowly to improved rival over C&D (good to soft; front pair well clear) 11 days ago and gets another chance off the same mark; obvious contender.

Form & Verdict

Both hurdles wins came here last year (2m7f, good to soft/good) and she won a point-to-point this April (3m, soft); fair fifth over fences here (2m4f, good) in May and not written off, but she's been pulled up in C&D chases either side of that run (didn't jump well latest); claims aren't compelling.

Point (3m) and dual hurdle (2m7f) winner but she's not made an impact in her six runs over fences and was 29l behind Dr Shirocco here (2m4f) last month; this step back up in trip is a positive but others are more persuasive.

Form & Verdict

Lightly raced 9yo who remains a maiden; his form has been patchy over the years but he was a creditable fourth of 15 over C&D (soft) in April when last seen; repeat of that performance will put him firmly in the mix.

J: Peter Kavanagh

T: Jane Walton

Went close at Musselburgh (2m7f, soft) in January and comfortably went one better at Sedgefield (3m3f, soft) next time; of interest on that winning performance and he's better than he showed at Wetherby last time, but this 10yo needs to leave that run behind and is 5lb out of the handicap today.

T: Jane Walton

Went close at Musselburgh (2m7f, soft) in January and built on that with comfortable win at Sedgefield (3m3f, soft) from Coolmoyne; it was a first victory for this 10yo so there are reservations about him defying a 6lb rise and following up, but if he repeats that latest form he'll be tough to beat.
