Form & Verdict

Raced mainly on good ground; has form figures of 11F since having wind surgery, running creditably but looking held by the winner when final-flight faller at Market Rasen (2m4f) in June latest; that race has worked out nicely, so he remains of interest; mark unchanged.

Easily defied top weight in lower grade at Exeter (2m2f, good to soft) seven weeks ago, taking career record to 4-8; stays 2m4f, now attempts 2m5f; one of two improving contenders for Nicky Henderson.

Beat a Ditcheat horse in heavy-ground bumper here on New Year's Day 2022; ran respectably in novice hurdle (2m5f, good to soft) this month, taking Exeter form figures to 133; open to progress now handicapping and looks interesting off a workable mark.

Runner-up in all three of his handicap hurdles (2m2f, 2m7f on heavy and 2m5f) and has been showing very consistent form; needs a bit extra to win one of this competitiveness and cheekpieces are enlisted.

Form & Verdict

Very consistent start to career, having produced form figures of 222 thus far, clear second in C&D maiden hurdle (on good ground) most recently; looks a winner in waiting; brings solid claims to handicap debut and could well go one better.

Runner-up in six of his seven appearances, including a close call in an Exeter maiden (2m5f, soft) last month and a front-running second in a handicap there (2m2f, heavy) last time; should go well again back up in trip and he's on the shortlist.

Form & Verdict

Disappointing favourite at Worcester (2m) on last appearance, taking hurdles record to 0-6; some encouraging efforts otherwise in this sphere and is favourably handicapped judged on peak Flat form (RPR 90); possibilities if back on song.

Form & Verdict

Comes with some risk as he's been disappointing on a few occasions and lacks recent match practice having been absent since chase debut (pulled up) 13 months ago; however, capable on his day and market support should be heeded on reappearance; 2-4 over hurdles.

Very lightly raced in the last two years; pulled up on chase debut in October 2022 and below form back over hurdles when next seen late last month; tongue tied on last three starts and now also sports cheekpieces; won off this mark in April 2022 but it's hard to be that confident in a revival.

Lightly raced and improving 7yo who is 3-4 over hurdles; made all in 2m handicaps at Southwell (good) and Warwick (soft) since having wind surgery; bred to be as effective at this longer trip; has gained all wins when fresh and now has something to prove turned out relatively quickly (only 19 days since last run); otherwise respected.
