Form & Verdict

Won a novice hurdle in the mud last season; jumped a little sketchily on his Sedgefield chase debut and reappearance over an extended 2m3f three weeks ago but he kept on for third and should improve for the experience; down in trip.

Made good start to chasing career in the autumn, notably when winning at Wetherby (1m7f, soft); arrives here after two non-completions and now has a point to prove but he's on a workable mark and will be suited by today's trip; helps to give Sue Smith a strong hand.

Kicked off this season with three good runs over fences, including a Wetherby win and C&D third, but needs to bounce back from a poor show when favourite on heavy going (has won on it before) at Haydock four weeks ago.

Bumper and two-time novice hurdle winner (all on good/good to soft) who left last month's chase debut well behind when runner-up at Wetherby (1m7f) last time, on soft ground that may not have been ideal; there can be optimism he'll continue to progress over fences and he could have a big say.

Fairly useful novice hurdler last season, best effort when second in Grade 2 at Cheltenham (2m, good) in November; may make a better chaser and his stable won this race 12 months ago, but he's not yet proven in the mud.

Form & Verdict

Won Listed juvenile hurdle in France in February; well beaten in Grade 1 juvenile hurdles in Britain in the spring but better signs over fences this autumn, travelling in lead for a long way and only just headed when falling at the last at Ascot (2m3f, soft) 25 days ago; this drop back in trip should suit and he's a big player if that tumble hasn't dented his confidence.

Form & Verdict

Dual hurdle winner at up to 2m3f last season; point background provides hope that she'll take to fences and she was better than the result on her first attempt at Carlisle (2m, soft) six weeks ago, fading after getting racing a long way out; likely improver for a leading yard with an excellent record here.
