Form & Verdict

Irish point winner but he was well held in his five completed starts over hurdles (2m-2m6f) and was pulled up on his chase/seasonal debut at Kelso last month; mark continues to fall but he has plenty to prove on this big step back up in trip; cheekpieces removed.

Reportedly suited by move up to 2m7f when holding on well to cause 33-1 surprise at Newcastle (2m7f, soft) in November; has some scope for further progress but dropped out rather tamely in home straight at Newcastle last month (2m4f) and is 2lb wrong here.

Form & Verdict

Hurdle winner who has had only two starts over fences and he raised his form to a new level when second of 18 in a similar handicap at Warwick (3m1f, soft) two weeks ago; up 5lb but he pulled well clear of the third last time and is still unexposed as a stayer; key player.

After finishing runner-up four times in a row (2m6f-3m1f, soft/heavy) he got off the mark over fences in commanding fashion at Chepstow (2m7f, heavy) 11 days ago; well treated under 7lb penalty and holds strong claims.

0-21 over hurdles/fences prior to winning at Haydock (2m4f, soft) last Saturday; over half the fences were omitted and his strike-rate suggests he's not an obvious one to follow up, but he frequently finishes placed and has run well over this C&D on heavy going; could give another good account.

Has been consistent over fences and he went close at Sedgefield (2m3f, good) last month before respectable efforts on soft ground in last two runs; remains feasibly treated but he's still a maiden after 15 starts and has stamina to prove in new headgear at this new trip; others are more persuasive.

Unexposed chaser who went close at Hexham (1m7f, soft) on his comeback last month but he was pulled up when joint-favourite at Kelso last time; that took his overall record to 0-10 and he has something to prove again on this big rethink in trip.
