Form & Verdict

He's on a competitive mark judged on last season's best efforts for Oliver Sherwood and he makes his stable and seasonal debut with the yard in flying form; interesting, especially if well backed.

Followed his former trainer Oliver Sherwood to Harry Derham's yard for which he made a winning start over 3m at Musselburgh (soft); didn't win with much in hand but that was his first run for 251 days and a 5lb rise is fair enough.

Won at Hereford (2m3f, good) in February but that was a weak four-runner race and he's since been a soundly beaten fourth at Southwell (2m4f, good to soft); others have more pressing claims.

Form & Verdict

Won when upped in trip over C&D (good to soft) in November and bang there when jinking and unseating rider two out at Aintree (3m, heavy) last month; there's a risk attached after that mishap but he could have more to offer over staying distances; strong contender if all goes smoothly.

Form & Verdict

Close second over C&D (good to soft) in November 2022 and won at Catterick (3m1f, good) in February on last hurdle outing; he's fit from the Flat (went close on AW two starts ago) and could have a part to play if soft ground isn't an issue.

Back on a handy mark but his three Flat wins last spring came over 2m and he hasn't run over this sort of trip since his days in maidens; the usual visor is missing too.

Form & Verdict

Prolific for Jennie Candlish over 2m-2m4f last March/April; didn't jump with fluency over fences when well beaten at Ayr (3m, soft) three weeks ago on third stable start and could appreciate the return to hurdles, but he has plenty to prove regarding stamina and current form.

Won four in a row over hurdles for Jennie Candlish in March (2m/2m4f, good/soft) and also scored over fences in April (2m3f, soft); possibly needed the run over hurdles at Kelso in October on his second stable start, but he was pulled up; doubts about his current form, and also stamina.

Form & Verdict

Beaten about 12l then 8l when fifth on her two runs this autumn, most recently over C&D (soft) behind Sanosuke; however, there remains a suspicion this lightly raced 7yo is capable of better and she's not discounted.

Said to like good ground on which he won at Down Royal in the summer; Sligo fourth on soft was respectable and was in front when falling three out at Down Royal; poor run across the water last time; change of headgear.

Form & Verdict

10yo who is not the force of old but she's dropped down the weights and kept on for a fair third at Ayr (2m4f, soft) three weeks ago; drops back down in grade here and should be fine now back up in trip; chance.
