Form & Verdict

Pulled up mid-race (saddle slipped) at Exeter last week on chase/seasonal debut; consistent over hurdles and should win a race over fences at some stage; however, has something to find with these two rivals on ratings.

T: Joe Tizzard

Won a match over C&D in November on his second chase start and then runner-up at Wincanton (2m4f); the saddle slipped when tried in a hood at Plumpton and soft ground counted against when back over hurdles the last time; should give his running now but being 6lb out of the weights hurts his chances.

Has been chasing, getting off the mark in a match at Kempton in November; ran well to be second here two runs back before pulling up early at Plumpton last week with a slipped saddle; useful hurdler at about this trip in the past and he can deal with this mark.

Form & Verdict

Top on ratings, having shown useful form over hurdles, including a success in last season's Gerry Feilden at Newbury (2m, good); below-par favourite in Listed hurdle here on reappearance but still warrants respect.

J: Nico de Boinville

T: Nicky Henderson

Smart hurdler with 4-16 strike-rate; can be excused last month's down-the-field finish in Scottish Champion Hurdle at Ayr (made bad jumping error in early stages) but was well beaten at very short odds in a match race on chasing debut in November and returns to fences with a point to prove.

J: Nico de Boinville

T: Nicky Henderson

Smart 2m hurdler at his best but hasn't quite hit peak form this season, respectable 10l third of five to Lossiemouth in Grade 2 at Cheltenham three months ago; now 3lb lower than for his last handicap success (November 2022) but he was only eighth of ten behind Rubaud 12 months ago and needs to rediscover his spark; perhaps recent wind surgery will give him a boost.

10/1
