Form & Verdict

Won twice during his first season over hurdles and ran quite well in a valuable final at Haydock the final time; his return at Exeter was too quiet for comfort but he retains potential; drying ground welcomed.

Two good-ground wins last season and back on the scoresheet at Wincanton (2m4f, soft) last November; another good run when third at Kelso (2m5f, good to soft) three weeks ago and he may be able to build on that; chance.

Promising novice campaign (including two good-ground wins) last season and he left October's reappearance run miles behind to win by 2l at Wincanton (2m4f, soft) in November last time out; appeared to idle when in front, so a 5lb rise could underestimate this progressive 7yo; likely player.

The switch to fences last season never went well and then fell mid-race back over hurdles at Aintree; had a solid record (21133) in this discipline prior to that and he could easily go well.

Chasing didn't go to plan last season and he was a mid-race faller when returned to hurdling in the spring but his reappearance second at Wincanton (2m4f, soft) in November was very encouraging and his current mark ought to be workable; shortlisted.

Form & Verdict

Completed a hat-trick earlier this year, a maiden and two handicaps (at about 2m; good and soft); struggled when raised in grade at Sandown and again disappointed when a strong favourite back on the Flat last month, though conditions were heavy; could yet prove himself worthy of this mark; cheekpieces added over a longer trip.

Triple hurdle winner last season (twice here); ran very poorly on the Flat in October, after a break, but was very respectable third when back over hurdles at Wincanton (2m4f, soft; first-time cheekpieces) in November; seemingly overlooked by Harry Cobden today but still enters calculations.

5yo who made it 3-5 over hurdles when completing a hat-trick in Ludlow handicap (2m, soft) in March; pulled up in final run in the spring but he's on a dangerous mark on this return to the Flat and is still unexposed in this sphere; interesting contender for yard that won this in 2018 and 2020.

Form & Verdict

Scrambled home at Uttoxeter in his first handicap but then bolted up in a conditional jockeys' race at Worcester (again 2m4f on good); 11lb higher for this and they claimed 10lb last time, so on the face of it he's asked quite a stiff question; remains unexposed, however.

His first two handicaps produced wins at Uttoxeter and Worcester (under a 10lb claimer) in summer 2022, both 2m4f on good; ran creditably over C&D (soft) when next seen last November, despite a bad mistake, but tailed off at Ludlow latest which puts a dampener on his prospects.

Could be called the winner a long way out on deep ground at Newbury (3m) at the beginning of this month, sauntering home by 25l; couldn't dominate in the same fashion in a much bigger field at Uttoxeter (3m, heavy) 15 days later and faded into a well-held third, albeit not disgraced in a hot race.

Beaten when falling in Saint Davy's race at Sandown but back on deep ground he could be called the winner a long way out at Newbury (3m, heavy) and sauntered home by 25l; a 7lb rise could have been a lot worse but he was perhaps flattered to some extent in a race that fell apart, and dominating this in similar fashion won't be easy.

Better known as a chaser now and was outpaced at the business end when fourth of five over hurdles at Fontwell (2m3f, good to firm) in May; however, he went close off a higher mark over C&D last summer and won't mind what the weather does; might be the answer.
