Form & Verdict

Improved form on his second start over fences when justifying support at Ffos Las (2m, good to soft) last Sunday; has a penalty but he kept on well to forge clear from his main market rival last time and is open to more progress back up in trip; respected.

Won at Ffos Las (2m) in October on second chase start and followed up at Plumpton (2m3f, also good to soft) eight days later; heavy ground may not have suited next time and he was keeping on well in a close third when falling at final fence at Sedgefield on Boxing Day; this unexposed 6yo could have more to offer but the ground may have gone against him.

Form & Verdict

Made it second-time lucky for Polly Gundry with an easy win at Fontwell (2m5f) last month and he had an excuse when badly hampered over C&D last time; hard to rule out further progress in this sphere but his win came on good ground and he still has something to prove in soft conditions.

Has rather mixed record for new stable this season but won by over 9l at Fontwell (2m5f, good) in the summer and may not have been suited by the soft ground when below form at Wincanton last month; no surprise if he features.

Pulled up on stable debut in July but opened account with eased-down success at Fontwell (2m5f, good) the following month; makes quick reappearance after good second at Plumpton (2m3f, good to soft) on Monday; won't be far away if in similar form again.

Form & Verdict

7yo who won over C&D (good to soft) in December 2021; that is his sole win from 21 starts but he's now 4lb lower than for that success and was a promising second at Stratford on his return last month; dangerous for in-form yard.

Two chase wins at 2m7f in November (soft and good to soft) but he's run poorly on heavy on two most recent starts over fences and now returns to hurdles; further rain unwelcome but place prospects anyway.

Form & Verdict

7yo who made it 4-7 for Ben Pauling when scoring with authority over 2m1f on soft at Bangor (jumped well) 19 days ago; up 5lb but he still looks feasibly treated and this step back up in trip is no problem; big player.

Has won four handicaps since last July - three chases (one here) and a hurdle race; needs to bounce back from two quiet runs over fences but there's nothing wrong with his mark over hurdles; stable won this last year.

Form & Verdict

All four wins have been gained at this track and latest was over C&D (soft) in January; that was off 2b higher but he's not come close to that form since and was a well-held third of four at Fontwell on his recent return after another wind op; has bit to prove and he needs a major revival.
