Form & Verdict

Hurdle winner in France in spring 2022; yet to build upon last December's very promising British debut and signed off with a poor performance in April but he makes his chasing debut from a good mark.

Stays 2m4f and acts on any ground; stepped up to Grade 1 level at Sandown (1m7f/2m4f) the last twice, beating Colonel Harry in the Henry VIII (took chase record to 3-3) then flopping in the Scilly Isles; the latest effort tempers enthusiasm and this is a much deeper race anyway.

Form & Verdict

Came good with clearcut hurdle win in Class 5 handicap at Market Rasen (2m4f, good to soft) in May but was safely held at Plumpton last month, after a break, and takes on higher-calibre opposition on this chasing debut.

Winning hurdler who was runner-up in his first two chases at about 2m3f (beaten 20l and just under 4l) before his early fall at Taunton when stepped up to 2m7f; there could be improvement lurking over this far; off since November.

No match for easy winner when second of four on last month's chasing debut but probably bettered that performance when second at Plumpton (2m3f, good to soft) 24 days ago; contender if suited by today's longer trip.

Off the mark over hurdles with clearcut success at Market Rasen (2m4f, good to soft) in May; no match for easy winner when second of four on last month's chasing debut at Fontwell (2m3f, good) but positives can be drawn from that performance and he's 3lb lower now.

Form & Verdict

Improved to cause 50-1 shock in Wincanton novice hurdle (2m5f, good to soft) in January; managed only fourth of six when switched to a handicap the following month and not seen since but still looks an interesting candidate for chasing this season; hood removed; tongue-tie added.

Low-mileage 5yo who caused a 50-1 surprise in novice hurdle here (2m5f, good to soft) just under a year ago; well held when third of four on seasonal/chase debut at Fontwell (2m3f, good) in October but that form looks much better now than it did at the time; unseated rider last time; could have a say.

Form & Verdict

Won here (2m3f, good) on hurdling debut a year ago and close third of five off today's mark on handicap debut here (2m1f, soft) in April; could easily have more to offer over fences this season; respected.

Won on his hurdling debut at Fontwell (2m3f, good) in October 2022 but he's 0-8 since and has been pulled up at Plumpton (chase/hurdle) in his last two starts; mark continues to fall but he needs a major turnaround back in trip; stablemate of David's Well.

Tailed off on seasonal/chasing debut in October but his keeping-on second of five here (2m1f, good to soft) the following month was a lot more encouraging; needs another big step in the right direction today, though./
