Hurdle/chase wins in November/January and ran well in a 3m5f handicap chase at Bangor in February; didn't jump well when last of four (Evens favourite) at Sedgefield last month but he's a key player back hurdling off a lower mark.

J: Henry Brooke

Generally progressive since handicapping; made an encouraging start to his chase career (came first and third) on first two starts this year before a poor show on latest outing; peak form is at 3m2f/3m5f (those chase runs) but he's one to note on this lower hurdles mark.

Form & Verdict

Back in prime form this season, winning three in a row under Tom Broughton at Southwell (3m, good); latest 5lb rise ought to be manageable and she makes very obvious appeal.

Has a record of 4-12 over hurdles and she's won under Tom Broughton over C&D (good) in her last two starts; has another 4lb rise to deal with after a short break but she's respected in her hat-trick bid.

Made the frame on all three starts for new stable last month, most recently when second at Warwick (3m1f, good) a fortnight ago; may yet have a bigger run in him and features prominently in calculations.

Took well to chasing this year, winning three times, and bounced back quickly from a below-par hurdle run when third (just behind Edison Kent) at Warwick (3m1f, good) a fortnight ago; probably won't be far away.

Won three good-ground chases last spring (2m7f-3m1f) and signed off in the autumn with a good hurdle run (3m1f, good to form) but has fitness to prove here and today's trip-and-ground combination is probably not ideal.

Left disappointing handicap debut a long way behind when rallying gamely for narrow win at Taunton (3m, good; first-time tongue-tie) in March; back in the doldrums at Warwick in May and not an easy one to predict here, but probably still has potential.
