Form & Verdict

Up-and-coming 5yo who ended last season with clearcut success in Scottish Champion Hurdle at Ayr (2m, good; made all) in April and is now 4-7 over hurdles (including C&D win in Grade 2 novice); has a bit to find on the figures today but still commands respect.

Acts on good to soft ground but is particularly well suited by faster, being 5-7 on good going over hurdles; creditable second, though no match for Constitution Hill, in the Christmas Hurdle at Kempton most recently; this front-runner has been largely progressive and remains of interest.

Acts on good to soft ground but is particularly well suited by faster, being 5-6 on good going over hurdles; comfortably justified favouritism in the Elite Hurdle (Grade 2) at Wincanton most recently, bringing up a four-timer that also included two wins (Grade 2/Listed) at this course; front-running 5yo who is improving and very much in the winning groove; respected.

Three wins for new stable this season, including Summer Hurdle at Market Rasen (2m, soft) in July; also suited by good ground and might still be on the upgrade but faces higher-calibre opposition today.

Pulled up in the Greatwood at Cheltenham last time and needs to bounce back, but he'd previously done very well following his move to this yard in April, winning three times, and this 5yo shouldn't be written off.

Ran well both visits here (2022) when trained by Dan Skelton; three wins for new stable this summer, including a pretty good prize at Market Rasen (2m, soft); good second of five in Listed event at Kempton (2m, good) latest after two months off, travelling well and keeping on well; respected even though he needs further improvement.

Form & Verdict

Last season fizzled out and he was about 18l behind Rubaud when eighth in Scottish Champion Hurdle in April, but he began that campaign with a good handicap win at Newbury (2m, good) last November and has a major role to play if back on song here; had another wind op (his third) in July.

Form & Verdict

High-class hurdler/chaser who has been an excellent servant to connections over the years and is bidding to win this race for the third season running; seemed to race too freely in first-time cheekpieces (now removed) in Aintree Hurdle in April but faced a tough assignment there anyway and ought to be very hard to beat here.

Multiple winner down the years; turns 12 imminently and his two results this season, including behind Rubaud when bidding for a third success in Kempton Listed event in October, suggest he's perhaps finally on the wane; well held in this contest in 2022.

Won heavy-ground chase off much-reduced mark last December but struggled to get competitive in this race on last season's reappearance outing and a similar scenario seems likely again today; had another wind op (his third) during the summer.
