Form & Verdict

Placed in a Grade 2 novice hurdle last season when with Michael Scudamore (same owners); made a solid start to his chase career in a first-time tongue-tie at Worcester (2m7f, good to soft) behind Broadway Boy who didn't disgrace the form last week at Cheltenham in Flooring Porter's race; should strip fitter here and be seriously involved.

Looked good in winning off 3lb lower at Huntingdon in November (2m7f, good to soft) but he did beat a horse who struggles to win and his subsequent runs, on either side of wind surgery, have been nothing like so good; finished behind Deeper Blue and Abuffalosoldier last time at Newbury.

Came good for Paul Nicholls at second attempt, at Huntingdon (2m7f, good to soft) in November; reportedly made a respiratory noise when below form behind Are U Wise To That at Cheltenham in December but was given a wind op soon afterwards and probably still has potential.

Form & Verdict

Chase career was aborted after finishing third at Cartmel in June 2022 but two runs later he won a 3m handicap hurdle at Cheltenham; perhaps found 2m4f too sharp when returning to fences at Warwick but that was nonetheless underwhelming; faces no easy task under top weight.

Form & Verdict

His two novice hurdle wins at Taunton were a long time ago now but he has since run well in handicaps and wasn't far off his best earlier this year for the Hobbs/White stable; goes chasing off a competitive mark and, despite changing stables, he remains in the same ownership.

Bounced back quickly from a disappointing run (in cheekpieces) to open chasing account in first-time blinkers at Wincanton (3m1f, good to soft) last month; not one to rely upon heavily but recent 4lb rise ought to be manageable if he responds well to a first-time visor.

Very respectable third on seasonal/stable debut at Huntingdon (2m7f, good to soft) last month but ought to have been suited by the soft ground when pulled up at Ludlow three weeks ago and today's headgear switch needs to perk him up.

Has only won a maiden hurdle in Ireland, where he twice disappointed over fences; returns to this discipline with a possible fitness edge after a respectable run of form over hurdles; good ground seems ideal, however.

Wide-margin 2m7f Fakenham win before Christmas but pulled up a long way out at Fontwell one week later; much higher mark now from out of the weights; first-time visor replaces cheekpieces.

Dual novice hurdle winner last winter and very nearly won his handicap debut off a 3lb lower mark than today's (2m4f, soft); never gave his running the final time but he's a promising chaser in the making.

Went from the front when winning two small-field 2m5f novices (good to soft) back in early 2022 before coming up short in the 3m Grade 1 at Aintree; presumably had some training issues in the meantime but retains plenty of potential for chasing.

Disappointing over fences earlier in the season; unlucky on return to hurdles when falling two out when in the lead at Doncaster in February (3m, soft, visor on for first time); went up 5lb; bit disappointing at Huntingdon last time (good); today's going will suit him better.
