Form & Verdict

Gamely won his second hurdle race from just four attempts at Ayr (2m, good to soft) three weeks ago, and the third has since boosted the form with a wide-margin success at Fakenham; 5lb rise is offset by his talented conditional rider's claim; shapes as if he'll be at least as effective over this longer distance; might be the answer.

Doughty 9yo with an impressive (8-22) strike-rate; faced a stiff task when fifth of six in mares' Listed race at Wetherby on reappearance but comes into the reckoning on her all-the-way Newcastle win off 3lb lower in March; also won this race (on soft off 12lb lower) 12 months ago; should make another bold bid.

Doughty 9yo, usually ridden these days by Kit Alexander; front-running sort who was back to her best when second of ten at Haydock (2m3f, good to soft) three weeks ago; effective in the mud but not proven over quite this far and probably too exposed to see off all of today's younger rivals.

Went the wrong way over fences last season after a promising start and had a (second) wind operation over the summer; might have needed the run when fifth of eight in handicap hurdle at Aintree four weeks ago; needs to step up markedly on that form to make an impact here but it's possible.

Compiling a useful CV; won twice in bumpers and was scoring for the second time over hurdles when getting up close home at Naas (2m3f, soft) in March; far from disgraced when third of six in Perth Listed event the following month; may not have reached his ceiling just yet; one of two interesting candidates for the Crawford stable.

Exceeded market expectations when eighth in the County Hurdle at Cheltenham last March; has been running well this winter but his sole handicap win came at Cartmel (2m1f, heavy) last July and he's still 6lb higher, so it's likely he has his share of weight; cheekpieces (tried once in 2022, Flat) are refitted.

An excellent advertisement for the training skills of Peter Atkinson; began his winning run in handicap hurdles at Doncaster (2m3f, good) in March and completed a four-timer at Carlisle (2m4f, soft) three weeks ago, having risen 12lb in the weights; up another 4lb for that narrow success but he's thriving and unlikely to be far away.
