Form & Verdict

Won on rules/hurdle debut here (2m4f, soft) in March and, although beaten under a penalty the next twice (2m4f, soft), those were still respectable runs; this very lightly raced point winner (3m, good to yielding) is open to improvement now over fences on his handicap debut; firmly in calculations.

Form & Verdict

Mixed fortunes last season after he won on his seasonal and hurdle debut at Wetherby (2m3f, good to soft) last October; however, connections waste little time in sending this very lightly raced 5yo over fences and he can obviously go well when fresh.

Underwhelming progress over hurdles after winning his novice; kicked off his chase career with a promising second at Market Rasen (2m5f, good to soft) in November but he was a well-held fourth of six at Ludlow last time; in good hands and still lightly raced but others are more convincing.

Underwhelming progress over hurdles after winning his novice so it remains to be seen how he'll progress over fences after an encouraging start at Market Rasen (2m5f, good to soft); proved no match for the winner and only 1lb lower for this.

Form & Verdict

His best hurdle form has come over this sort of trip and he was in good heart in that sphere last month (perhaps stretched by 3m at Aintree last time); his pedigree provides optimism regarding chasing and he's a leading player if transferring his hurdle form to fences at the first attempt.

Two wins (2m4f/2m3f, good to soft/soft) from last three starts, with good fourth in hot novice handicap at Cheltenham in between; did it comfortably at Catterick latest despite final-fence blunder; unexposed over fences and could have more to offer in this sphere; key player up 7lb for last time.

Well handicapped on his 2021-22 novice hurdle form (including here); however, he struggled last season (chiefly over fences) and has something to prove on his return; has had a wind op and wears first-time tongue-tie.

Left disappointing stable debut a long way behind when scoring at Doncaster (3m, soft) last month but raced rather lazily before eventually finishing well for third at Newbury (2m6f, good to soft) on latest outing; may benefit from today's step up in trip but it's hard to predict the extent to which he'll warm to the task.

Bumper winner with a record of 3-7 over hurdles; has taken a while to get the hang of things over fences but he made it sixth-time lucky in this sphere when rallying to score at Doncaster (3m, soft; second run for new yard); now drops back to 2m6f but he's a versatile type who should have more to offer over fences; interesting off only 2lb higher than last time.

Has won a bumper and 3-7 over hurdles; thrown in on that form but he's 0-5 over fences and none of those performances are greatly persuasive; latest (upped to 3m, showed little) was his second run since wind surgery and first since leaving Richard Spencer; recent tongue-tie is removed.

Form & Verdict

Well beaten on final hurdle start last term and same story on last month's chase debut at Huntingdon (2m7f, good to soft); however, he shaped as though he would improve for that run and/or the drop back in trip, and he won twice over hurdles early this year (2m3f, good to soft/soft); a possible.

This trip could be on the short side but it was a likeable display when getting off the mark over fences at Huntingdon (2m4f, soft; fine on drier ground) and, overall, he probably has the least to prove here even off a 7lb higher mark.

0-5 over fences but headgear seems to have helped on last two outings, and the form of last month's Fakenham second (2m5f, soft; first-time blinkers) was well advertised by the winner in a valuable race at the weekend; has cheekpieces refitted today; course winner over hurdles; high on the list.
