Form & Verdict

Well backed before making winning rules debut over C&D (soft) in October and did not need to improve to follow up in weak race at Chepstow (2m, soft; won easily) last month; should have more to offer in handicaps and commands respect.

Made it 4-4 over hurdles when winning at Chepstow (2m3f, heavy) last month, which was his second small-field handicap victory; has achieved a strong level of form; leading claims under double penalty now back in a novice.

Made promising Irish point debut just under a year ago and is 3-3 under rules this season (all on soft ground), including a 2m course win in November and last month's handicap debut at Wincanton (1m7f); promises to be very well suited by today's longer trip and commands respect.

Won one of his two races as a juvenile last term and was clear second to a next-time-out winner on handicap debut at Ludlow (2m, good to soft) in October; raised 5lb for that but has plenty of scope for further progress.

Beat three rivals to make winning debut in junior hurdle at Bangor (2m, soft) last November and was second to useful rival in similar race over C&D (soft) in January; makes handicap debut after 293-day absence but should have more to offer this season.

Form & Verdict

Soundly beaten in two maiden hurdles this autumn but got career back on track with good second on handicap debut at Ffos Las (2m, heavy) a week ago; today's race looks more competitive but the less-testing ground will also suit and he remains lightly raced.

Form & Verdict

Very useful Flat-racer who won two juvenile hurdles for Philip Kirby in 2021; beaten in a match on recent stable debut, after a long absence, but appeared to run well and could still have untapped potential over hurdles.

Useful at up to 1m4f on the Flat for Philip Kirby and was 2-5 over hurdles for that yard; switches back to jumps after 406 days off but this is only his second handicap in this sphere and he needs a close look on his first run for Dan Skelton.

Form & Verdict

Looked promising in bumpers in 2021-22 season and was not disgraced in Grade 2 novice on hurdling debut in February of that campaign; seen only once last term, winning easily at Sedgefield (2m4f, good) 15 months ago, but remains unexposed and can evidently go well when fresh.
