Form & Verdict

Point and bumper winner; started off over hurdles with three very convincing 2m wins before put firmly in his place in the Grade 1 Supreme (40-1) and a creditable third over 2m4f, both at Cheltenham; should still bring plenty of potential.

Form & Verdict

Useful hurdler (similar form to the less experienced Chasing Fire) but disappointing favourite in the County at Cheltenham in March; back to form when tongue tied on final start last term and has since had wind surgery; another promising recruit to chasing.

Effectively gifted both chase wins, at Warwick (walkover) and Aintree (sole finisher), and he wasn't at this best at Kempton (2m4f, soft) in February last time; however, he's had wind surgery since and comes into calculations judged on his third in a Grade 2 novice at Lingfield (2m, soft) two starts ago; one to consider now back down in trip and back at a left-handed track.

Effectively gifted both chase wins, at Warwick (walkover) and Aintree (2m4f; sole finisher); however, ran well at the weights in Grade 2 at Lingfield (2m, soft; finished third) most recently and may rate higher still over fences; not dismissed.

Form & Verdict

Very smart hurdler with good-ground wins in the Greatwood Handicap at Cheltenham and the Grade 2 Kingwell at Wincanton, easily the best of his five runs last season; his two heaviest defeats last term were on soft but best run the previous campaign was on good to soft; has much the best form in this small but select field; the one to beat if the ground is okay.

J: Sam Twiston-Davies

T: Nigel Twiston-Davies

Well-beaten sixth of seven in last month's Champion Hurdle and he weakened on his sole previous attempt at this sort of trip; however, the ground was soft for both of those runs and perhaps he's better served by a sounder surface; has won the Greatwood Handicap and the Grade 2 Kingwell Hurdle and he's an each-way contender if able to produce his best form.

J: Sam Twiston-Davies

T: Nigel Twiston-Davies

Progressive hurdler who powered clear for a 17l success in the Kingwell at Wincanton (1m7f) last month, bouncing back from his Relkeel flop over 2m4f; rated by trainer as being as good as the yard's best hurdlers in the past, including two horses who were placed in the Champion Hurdle; 3-3 over C&D, the most recent in this season's Greatwood (defied top weight in emphatic style); has raced mostly on good/good to soft; should go well.
