Easy win on his handicap and seasonal debut at Wincanton (1m7f, soft) in October and readily followed up off the same mark at Plumpton (2m, good to soft) eight days later, when forced to switch; hit with 12lb rise but could still be ahead of the handicapper.

Form & Verdict

Bumper winner who has made the frame on five of his six hurdling starts, most recently when third in Huntingdon handicap (2m, good; also handles soft) last month; doesn't help himself by tending to race too freely but ought to give another good account; tongue-tie added.

Form & Verdict

2-5 as a juvenile hurdler last season, the latter win gained at Taunton (2m, soft) in March; made satisafactory reappearance when third (albeit well held) in heavy-ground Flat race last month and could still have more to offer under this code.

J: Rob Hargreaves

T: Gary Moore

Usually a force to be reckoned with at Fontwell (form figures 44121) and sits 4lb lower than scoring over C&D last summer; tailed off when last seen at Lingfield in February, but freshened up by a break since; one of three for Gary Moore.

Form & Verdict

Promising novice for Gary Moore in 2021-22, winning twice (2m1f/2m4f); makes stable/handicap debut after 577-day absence and is not obviously well treated but market support will bring him into the equation.

Won twice for Gary Moore, including here, in late 2021/early 2022; returned from an 18-month absence to be well held in three runs (two over fences) for Chris Gordon before moving to James Owen; fared no better in a Class 3 at Newbury latest, so cheekpeices are now applied.

T: James Owen

Won two novice hurdles (2m1f/2m4f) two seasons ago but he missed last term and has been well held in three runs this winter, including over fences here in last two starts; on reduced mark back over hurdles but has questions to answer for another new yard.

5 yo Gelding

Form & Verdict

Smart on the Flat when trained in Germany and came good over hurdles at second attempt, with easy win in C&D (good to soft) maiden two weeks ago; that form lacks depth but, nevertheless, an opening handicap hurdle mark of 106 could seriously underestimate him.
