Form & Verdict

Handicapper quick to respond to an emphatic success here latest (almost 2m7f, good to soft) but, although back on his highest mark for 18 months, he's still a stone lower than when third in this race in 2021, still arguably his most recent good effort on ground soft or worse.

Overdue some better luck, having been beaten a neck or less on three of his final five starts last term, two of them chases; still on a feasible mark despite being raised 7lb for not winning, and no ground issues.

0-4 over fences but lost out only by a nose on consecutive outings in the spring (2m1f/2m4f) and again ran well when second on seasonal debut at Market Rasen (2m3f, soft) this month; major player if suited by today's step up in trip.

Kept on for modest third at Market Rasen (2m3f, soft) last month but was below that form over 3m2f on latest outing and remains without a win since June 2021; 3lb wrong here; not the most obvious answer.

Second of three starts for Oliver Sherwood last term offered encouragement and his mark looks ever more realistic, but the pick of his form in France came granted trips closer to 2m1f-2m2f; seasonal/stable debut.

Ex-French; exposed maiden who has run two creditable races for this yard on this track, finishing fourth at this trip (soft) and last time second off this mark over 2m1f (good to soft; Brickadank 8l back in fourth); a player.

Form & Verdict

Not too surprising the cheekpieces of March's Warwick win (2m4f, soft; RPR 101) return, having foundered up in trip with all aids off since; retains handicapping scope off just 2lb higher; tongue-tie added.

Chase winner at 2m4f last March (soft; first-time cheekpieces) but struggling to recapture form since back from a break in November and no great incentive to support him today despite the switch in headgear.

Form & Verdict

Huntingdon and (last time) Warwick chase wins both came over 2m4f off 4lb lower with Finn Lambert in the plate; more needed to follow up and jumping isn't always note-perfect, but sounder claims than many.
