Form & Verdict

Won heavy-ground bumper in early 2022 and was a course winner over hurdles (2m1f, soft) last season; began chasing career with two very respectable runs this autumn, more recently when fifth at Ascot (2m3f, soft), and today's race is easier; likely contender.

Sent chasing in October and has been first or second in all but one of his five runs over fences, sticking to his task well (tongue tied first time on latest outing); those best efforts were on good to soft but he did win twice over hurdles on soft and in a bumper on heavy; it's today's trip which gives him the most to prove, as not having gone beyond an extended 2m4f makes this 4m1f race a huge step in the dark.

Form & Verdict

Won quite stylishly at Cartmel (2m1f, soft) on stable debut in August and runner-up all three starts since (2m-2m1f); not yet proven on heavy ground but could plausibly still have untapped potential over 2m4f; ought to make his presence felt again.

First or second on all seven starts for this yard (good/soft), with a win at Doncaster (2m3f, good to soft) two starts ago and a good second at Musselburgh last month; has had wind op since; keeps going up the weights but this admirably consistent 8yo continues to be competitive; respected.

Yet to finish outside the top two after six runs for current stable and looked in excellent nick when landing a good prize at Doncaster (2m3f, good to soft) in December; 6lb rise demands more from him here but he'll be fine on this right-handed track and ought to make his presence felt.

Came good over fences at sixth attempt, battling well for hard-fought success at Carlisle (2m4f, good to soft) last month, and a 4lb rise ought to be manageable; not yet proven on heavy ground but handles soft; a player.

Has won twice over C&D this season and pushed William Of York very close here (2m5f, soft) last month; bolted up in four-runner handicap at Newcastle (2m4f, heavy) 12 days ago and, although he's now 7lb higher in a hotter race, he appears to be progressive and could play another leading role.

Form & Verdict

Irish point winner; went close in Musselburgh maiden hurdle (3m, soft) on rules debut in January but yet to build upon that performance, and was pulled up on handicap hurdle debut in April; had wind surgery during seven-month break; makes chasing debut here; others have much less to prove.

Irish point winner who is 0-8 under rules; on a competitive mark; would be a player if in the same form as when third at Musselburgh in December (2m7f, good to soft) but needs to better his other three efforts this season; tongue-tie and cheekpieces go on.

Lightly raced 8yo; stayed on strongly for third off this mark over C&D (2m7f, good to soft; acts on soft) in December on his second chase start; 3m6f may well have played some part (not all) when he pulled up at Catterick last time; that last run was offputting but he's considered.

Soft-ground 3m point winner who stayed on strongly for third at Musselburgh (2m7f, good to soft) last month on his second chase start; today's marathon trip is well worth exploring with this lightly raced 8yo and he's one to consider.

Form & Verdict

Dual Irish point winner (once on soft to heavy ground); 0-4 over hurdles last season but made quite promising chasing debut when third of six at Sedgefield (2m5f, soft) last month and, although up in grade here, should have more to offer.
