C&D novice winner on soft in March 2022; returned from a long absence in October and he was better here last time when third in a stronger race; if his jumping sharpens up for cheekpieces he should have a major say.

Ran surprisingly well from 22lb out of the weights when virtually upsides Nordic Tiger at Taunton (2m3f, good to soft) which was easily his best form yet; only 4lb wrong here and 11lb lower than last time; has to be considered.

Form & Verdict

Not all that far away in two novices before holding every chance two out and going down by under 2l on his switch to handicaps at Lingfield (2m, good to soft); this longer trip won't be an issue on breeding.

Dual chase winner but was pulled up over fences last time after never travelling; his form can fluctuate but he ran well over hurdles at Newton Abbot in October and is hard to dismiss.

Won over C&D last season and was placed off 5lb higher at Newton Abbot (2m5f, soft) in October after an absence, but his form nosedived towards the end of last year and he needs to have been refreshed by another break.

Form & Verdict

Seriously progressive with cheekpieces on AW Flat this February-April, staying 2m well; last seen finishing down the field at Royal Ascot; uncompetitive in his two handicaps over hurdles but he's a maiden winner and still lightly raced in this scene; potentially on a very good mark; tongue-tie joins the cheekpieces that worked well for him on the Flat.

Suitable runner for the Marathon Trial as he ran well (finished second) in last year's Marathon, though was in better form at the time; only fourth at Kempton on the return to this sphere and appears held by Duty Of Care on that effort.

Pulled up at 22-1 on stable debut at Newton Abbot (2m5f, heavy) in October; however, this French winner (2m3f, good to soft) has had a wind op since; one to watch in the betting now back on less testing ground.

Couple of backward steps in the spring; 3-3 at Class 5 level, namely a February hat-trick that proved a great start to her handicap career; clear possibilities back in this grade.
