Form & Verdict

Did well in novice hurdles last season and he's finished a good second in both his runs over fences, latterly behind the useful Master Chewy at Aintree (2m, good to soft); lacked that one's pace when it mattered and this trip is probably a better fit.

Progressive novice who was suited by the return to a left-handed track when winning at Kelso (2m5f, good to soft) last month; also effective on soft/heavy; this is a tougher test of his credentials than last time but he's up just 2lb and could continue to improve for last year's winning yard.

Form & Verdict

All the better for front-running tactics when making all to bring up a hat-trick in handicaps (2m-2m4f) earlier this year for Dan Skelton; didn't win any of those by far so remains on a competitive mark if he can take to fences; changed hands for £38,000.

Form & Verdict

Didn't reach the heights expected of him as a hurdler but chasing could be the making of him judged by his successful start at Hereford (2m5f, good) where he rallied to win by 2l; jumped soundly enough and a 5lb rise is nothing to moan about.

Made bright start to chasing career in November, scoring at Hereford (2m5f, good), but two lesser efforts followed and he needs a boost from the first-time cheekpieces on this first start for 100 days.

Form & Verdict

It wasn't a strong novice hurdle he won at Southwell (2m, good to soft) before coming up well short in a strong 2m handicap at Sandown (soft); this should be more his trip and is the type to do well over fences; had wind surgery.

Came good over hurdles at fourth attempt, with easy novice win at Southwell (2m, good to soft) six weeks ago; the value of that form is open to question (main market rival wayward in straight) but he remains unexposed.

Form & Verdict

Perhaps unsuited by soft ground when pulled up on his final hurdle start (2m7f maiden) but the form of his previous second at Wetherby (2m3f, good) is nothing special; looks vulnerable unless he can raise his game over fences, though that's feasible given his pedigree.

Perhaps unsuited by soft ground when pulled up in March (2m7f maiden) on final start last term; did not last long when reappearing for chase/handicap debut at Doncaster (2m3f) three weeks ago, which sees him back over hurdles today and there is plenty of stamina in his pedigree.
