Made no further progress after last December's breakthrough win at Catterick (3m1f, soft) but signed off with good third off today's mark at Ffos Las (3m1f, good) in April and resumes in an easier race.

Plenty of short-priced defeats to go with his sole win but his two C&D seconds in recent times give him claims, with any rain likely to work in his favour; goes on the shortlist.

Versatile ground-wise; form dipped sharply the last twice, following a string of consistent efforts; clear second off this mark over C&D in November and has possibilities granted a rebound.

3m1f winner on soft ground last winter on chase debut; runner-up on first three runs this season before a poor show at Warwick latest; player if bouncing back from that.

Form & Verdict

Went close in Plumpton maiden hurdle (2m4f, good to soft) in December 2021 and was very respectable third on handicap debut at Warwick (3m2f, heavy) later that month; makes chasing debut after 663-day absence but has been given a good chance by the handicapper.

Form & Verdict

Last season's record was rather mixed but he won a much stronger race than this at Wincanton (3m1f, good to soft) on Boxing Day and is only 3lb higher now; will be a tough nut to crack if on song after his break.

Form & Verdict

Ran very poorly on handicap hurdle debut in June and is effectively 4lb higher from out of the weights here; remains unexposed but switches to fences with quite a bit to prove; visor removed after one use.

Unplaced all six starts under rules, the last twice over fences; only beaten about 15l when seventh at Ludlow (2m4f, soft) in December and effectively 7lb lower today; needs to improve but trainer has good strike-rate here (21%) and the booking of Brian Hughes is a plus.

Form & Verdict

Made the frame in three consecutive chases when fitted with cheekpieces in early part of this year but suffered alarming dip in form on final three starts last season; 10lb out of the weights here; needs to have been revitalised by six-month break.

Verdict

Pilot Show ended last season with a good effort but it might be worth chancing SANDY BROOK, who makes his chasing debut after a long absence but is now 10lb lower than when running pretty well on his handicap hurdle debut, and can hopefully make up for lost time.[Chris Wilson]
