J: Toby Wynne

T: Robbie Llewellyn

Has won his last two handicap chases and just about career-best form when winning by 6l over C&D last month; soft ground was slower than ideal when tailed off on his return to hurdles at Bangor; 6lb higher than for that recent course win but should give another good account.

Form & Verdict

Five-time hurdle winner who made an encouraging start over fences when runner-up behind an improver here (2m4f, good) in May; goes back up in grade on this first run since but the drop back in trip should suit and her last win came off this mark; needs a close look.

Five wins as hurdler (latest two years ago) whereas she has come second over 2m/2m4f on varied ground in four of her five runs over fences, latest under Alice Stevens; met with a heavy defeat over hurdles at this meeting one year ago and today's task is made difficult by position 6lb out of the handicap.

Five-time hurdle winner who has made the frame in all four chases this season, most recently when second of four at Ludlow (2m4f, soft) ten days ago; has shown a tendency to jump left so today's switch to an anti-clockwise track ought to suit; major player.

Never threatened the winners when runner-up in two chases here last year (2m4f/2m) but got closer when third at Huntingdon (2m) after a break and this looks winnable; stable going well and one of her five hurdle wins came on soft ground.

Form & Verdict

Made all when favourite on handicap/chase debut at Wincanton (1m7f, good) last November but has a mixed record since and was a well-held third back over hurdles at Wincanton last month; may have needed that after a break but he needs to settle better this time and others are more persuasive.

Headstrong sort who is inconsistent and was pulled up last time; however, he was found to have an irregular heartbeat and was uncharacteristically held-up, which may not have suited; has dropped to a dangerous mark and he was a fair third over C&D last November; not written off.

Raced mainly at around 2m but returned to form with clearcut success when upped to 2m4f at Lingfield (good to soft) 11 days ago and is now 6-20 over fences; escapes a penalty here (due a 5lb rise) and ought to cope with the slower ground; obvious contender.

Form & Verdict

Well held over hurdles in his two runs this autumn but he's a six-time chase winner and his last success was by 16l at Chepstow (2m, good to soft) in April; looks interesting if he can recapture that form and he's not ruled out back over fences.

When a 23l third at Newbury (2m, soft) two starts ago he was behind two highly progressive rivals and he continues to drop down the weights, but positive performances have been scarce this season and he was tailed off at Sandown (1m7f, soft) last time.
