Form & Verdict

Well handicapped on hurdling form shown in early 2022 but 0-5 over fences last season, often looking unenthusiastic; comes here fresh and may be rekindled by the switch back to this discipline but still has something to prove; blinkers removed after one use; tongue-tie added.

Dual winner at Lingfield this season, latterly in 3m5f chase on soft ground in February; got very tired on heavy ground at Bangor (3m5f) a fortnight later but certainly didn't run badly there, and the quicker conditions here ought to suit him better.

Three hurdle wins, most recently over 2m7f (soft) here in November, but has struggled to put it together over fences; way back at Fontwell 16 days ago, when adding cheekpieces (as today) failed to move things along.

Form & Verdict

Delivered on earlier promise when scoring by 13l on handicap debut at Market Rasen (2m4f, soft) in March; raced too freely and was below that form when upped to 2m7f later that month but could still have untapped potential over this sort of trip.

Form & Verdict

Failed to win and became rather disappointing last season but his close second at Fontwell (3m2f, good) in May was an upturn in form and he returned from a break with a satisfactory run there last month; versatile regarding ground and remains on a workable mark; enters calculations.

2-5 at Ascot; mostly disappointing in his nine runs this year, including twice at this track, and his best run in that period came when runner-up over 3m2f in May; wore cheekpieces on last four starts; 12lb higher this time last year but a revival is needed.

Form & Verdict

Very respectable third over fences on last month's seasonal debut and put in a good front-running shift in 19-runner amateur riders' chase at Cheltenham (3m1f, good) 18 days ago; switches back to hurdling on a good mark and with first-time cheekpieces; good chance.

Acts on heavy; form dipped at Bangor last time; well suited by Chepstow and gained his sole chase win, albeit somewhat fortuitously, over this C&D (off 2lb lower in January); return to this track is a plus.

Dual C&D winner over hurdles (2021); this season didn't go well, including over C&D two starts back, before he surged back to his best with a chase win on heavy ground at this track one month ago; that puts him back into serious calculations.

Form & Verdict

Quirky customer who sometimes makes his jockey work hard; ridden along and detached for most of final circuit at Plumpton (2m4f, good to soft) recently but kept on well in closing stages and was beaten about only 3l in the end; it's hard to predict the extent to which he'll warm to the task here but he remains very well handicapped and the longer trip will suit.
