Form & Verdict

Triple hurdle winner (1m7f-2m4f), but he made a low-key start over fences when a remote third at Warwick (first run after wind surgery) two weeks ago; may have needed that after six months off but he's still 3lb higher than for last win and others are preferred.

Form & Verdict

Completed a hurdling double when scoring at Newton Abbot (3m2f, good) in April 2022 but he was not seen again until a heavy defeat here last month; on reduced mark on this return to chasing but he has a mixed record in this sphere and others are more convincing.

Only 14 races and has won three of his last five, latterly making the breakthrough over fences with an idling win at Taunton (2m7f, good to soft); today's softer surface is perhaps a greater concern than the 5lb rise.

Form & Verdict

Ex-French 6yo with a record of 0-8 but he made a promising start over fences when a rallying third at Hereford (2m, good) 17 days ago; this step back up in trip looks a good move and he's in the mix with cheekpieces added.

Perhaps flattered to win quite so convincingly over fences here two runs back (2m4f, soft) and was then a remote third again here after going up 9lb; 5lb lower for this return to hurdling and Gearoid Harney takes off a further 7lb, so has a chance at the weights.

Dual course winner who has dropped a long way in the weights and he ran his best race for some time when third of 12 over C&D (good to soft) 12 days ago; drops back in grade off 1lb lower here and has claims if he can build on that last run.

Regressive 8yo who was just a respectable fourth at favourite track Wincanton (2m4f, soft) a fortnight ago; remains very well handicapped on older form but is back up in grade today and will need to up his game.

5 yo Gelding

Form & Verdict

Won off 1lb higher over hurdles at Exeter (2m2f, good to soft) in February but he's not gone on from that and was only fifth of six on his chase/seasonal debut at Exeter (100-30) last month; should benefit from that experience but his overall record now stands at 1-13 and others look stronger.

6 yo Gelding

OR: 112

Form & Verdict

Tailed off over hurdles here last month but that was after a break and he finished runner-up in his last four chase runs during the spring/summer including a close call over C&D (good); looks interesting off dangerous mark back in this sphere and it would be a positive if the ground dries out.

Won two in a row (good/heavy) prior to finishing second in this last year (good to soft); he's 5lb lower than 12 months ago and is one to watch in the betting, but this 11yo has been tailed off/pulled up on his two runs this season and a major turnaround is required.

Back-to-back wins at Ffos Las (3m, good) and Taunton (2m7f, heavy) last March and only 3lb higher than for the latest of those; however, he's an 11yo now and his reappearance was underwhelming even if that was over 2m4f.

Form & Verdict

Well held in his first two chase runs but after wind surgery things have really clicked with his 2m3f wins at Plumpton and Fontwell (both on good) this autumn; up another 5lb but he's forged clear in those last two runs and is open to more progress; big player.
