Tom Cody

11st 1lb

J: Ross Chapman

T: Rebecca Menzies

Won in first-time cheekpieces (retained since) at Newcastle (2m7f, heavy) last month and again had plenty in hand here (2m3f, soft) on Boxing Day; an 8lb rise for last time could have been worse and there can be optimism that he remains ahead of the handicapper.

Form & Verdict

0-20 under rules and hasn't been threatening to win of late; 7lb out of the handicap today and others are readily preferred.

0-19 over fences and out of the handicap once more, but he's been a fair second the last twice (2m7f/3m1f, heavy/soft); each-way possibilities.

Form & Verdict

Point winner who is one to watch in the betting off a lowly mark on her chase debut; however, she's been struggling over hurdles this year and needs to raise her game in a big way.

OR: 85

Form & Verdict

Won two handicap hurdles in a row in spring 2022 (3m/3m3f, good to soft; also effective on heavy) and fair efforts in that sphere this spring when last seen; the big question is whether he takes to fences at the first attempt but his dam was a useful chaser and he's not ruled out.

Dual hurdle winner (once here) in spring 2022 but has not shown a great deal in three slow-ground chases this season (2m4f-2m7f) and needs to turn a corner.

He's well treated on last season's hurdle form and it's still early days over fences, but if he's to threaten he needs to produce more than he's managed on his first two runs in this discipline.
