Form & Verdict

Bumper/hurdle winner at Chepstow (good to soft/soft); backed into favouritism for chase debut there last month and was moving well when falling three out; off the same mark he has to be seriously considered.

Bumper/hurdle winner who was going well when falling three out on his chase debut at Chepstow (2m, soft) in November, and made amends at Wincanton (1m7f, soft) a fortnight ago; 10lb higher in a better race here but did it very easily last time and he could have lots more left in the tank.

Form & Verdict

Bumper winner on debut (heavy); was looking mildly progressive in handicap hurdles until running very flat last time at Exeter; might not be straightforward and looks best watched on chase debut.

1m AW and dual 2m hurdle winner; may just have needed the run after a break on his chase debut at Kempton (2m2f, good) last month; should be capable of stepping up on that.

Form & Verdict

Dropped away quite tamely on his recent chase debut at Taunton (2m2f, good to soft; behind Non Stop) and that's now three below-par performances on the bounce; bit to prove.

By no means prolific over hurdles, with sole success coming in a 2m handicap at Worcester in August and twice held afterwards off his revised mark; bred to do well over fences but worrying that his improvement has come on drier ground.

Came good over hurdles with clearcut success at Worcester (2m, good) last month, his seventh attempt, and subsequent odds-on defeat in tactical, three-runner contest is not viewed harshly; can make his presence felt.
