Form & Verdict

Struck form with convincing chase wins (3m/3m2f) in February on good to soft and good; both starts since summer break have been on soft, with a creditable third at Sedgefield (3m3f) preceding a poor show at Warwick; although he won on heavy as a hurdler, perhaps a return to better ground would help.

In fine form at Southwell on last three starts (3m/3m2f, heavy/good to soft), with two wins sandwiching a near-miss; also effective elsewhere and this progressive 8yo could play another leading role.

Form & Verdict

0-7 over hurdles but might have won at Warwick (3m1f, good to soft) in May had he not lost his footing just after the penultimate fight; satisfactory chase debut at Plumpton (near 2m4f) three weeks ago; probably acts on soft; one to consider seriously.

Form & Verdict

Eight-race maiden; rallying third of seven in handicap at Huntingdon on chase debut four weeks ago was narrowly his best form, when stepped back from 3m (one attempt) to 2m4f; probably acts on soft; only a 6yo and may yet prove his stamina.

Won comfortably in the first-time cheekpieces at Southwell (2m4f, good to soft) but he ran moderately off a 9lb higher mark next time when perhaps the headgear failed to help a second time; if it was just an off-day then he might bounce back.

Form & Verdict

Won on heavy ground in December 2020 early in chase career; he's now 1-13 in this sphere but is well down the weights and took minor honours on his last three completions, beaten only a neck at Warwick (soft) last time; that was 2m4f but he has 2023 form at 3m at a similar level; made most on last two starts; often hooded but not since 2021 and cheekpieces are now enlisted.

Went down fighting when close second at Warwick (2m4f, soft) last month, after a break, and can be excused for finding 3m on heavy ground too taxing last time (first run in cheekpieces); however he remains without a win since 2020 and others appeal more.

Form & Verdict

Ridden four times by James Turner last season, including when this race (soft) saw this veteran open his account at the 30th attempt, coming from the back at 100-1; 4lb higher today and in the doldrums for his other five runs last term; it seems a bit bold to predict that lightning will strike twice.
