Form & Verdict

Has fallen/unseated on two of his last four runs, most recently at Wetherby last month; however, he won twice earlier this year (2m5f/3m, soft; including here) and reappeared with a fair sixth at Carlisle (2m4f, good to soft) in October; could have more to offer if minimising the blunders.

Returned to form with front-running win at Ayr (3m, soft) in December and is now 3-9 over fences; should be fine on this right-handed track but latest 7lb rise demands more from him and he may not be allowed an uncontested lead this time.

Form & Verdict

His form was up and down last season but he ran well on his reappearance and went very close at Carlisle (2m4f, heavy) in March; this course winner stays 3m and is one to consider on his return to action.

Went close here (2m4f, heavy) last March and kicked off this campaign with two good second-place finishes at Ayr (3m, soft/heavy); not at the top of his game at Newcastle the last twice and his losing sequence goes back 13 races to March 2021, but he's capable of having a say if bouncing back to form.

Possibly needed the run when beaten just over 6l by Readysteadybeau at Ayr last month and is now 5lb better off with that rival; duly improved to go close back there four weeks ago when beaten by a very capable veteran; no ground worries and he should be a factor.

Well beaten at Cheltenham last time but he made mistakes and lost a shoe; prior to that he won on his reappearance at Kelso (3m2f, good to soft) and he's fine on soft ground; could bounce back with a big run.

On the podium for 13 of 17 chase starts, winning four, is effective on slow ground and is back below a winning mark; yard has won three of the last seven renewals, including last year's Patrick Wadge-ridden victor; player, so long as the recent tendency to jump right doesn't resurface.

Won on reappearance here (3m2f, good to soft) in October and bounced back from below-par run at Cheltenham when fair third at Ayr (3m, soft) last month; he's 2-2 over fences at Kelso and could play a leading role now back here in a first-time visor (replacing cheekpieces).

Form & Verdict

Won over fences on stable debut at Cartmel (3m1f, heavy) in July and, after two lesser runs there, he was a good fourth of 19 over hurdles at Down Royal (3m, soft) last month; this 5yo could be in the mix.

Form & Verdict

Won at Hexham (2m4f, heavy) in March on penultimate run for Patrick Griffin and should be fine now back up in trip; changed hands for £8,000 in May and new trainer had a stable and seasonal debutant go close at 33-1 at Kelso recently; capable of a bold show.

Course hurdles winner who scored twice over fences at Kelso (2m7f, good/soft) during last season's novice campaign, and he shaped when second there (2m5f, good to soft) last month as though this step back up in trip would be a positive move; on the shortlist.
