Form & Verdict

Four hurdle wins in 2022, including in the mud; had wind surgery last August and creditable fourth of 15 at Lingfield (2m7f, good to soft) in November on debut over fences, but well below form over that same C&D 11 days later; changes headgear again, which has had a positive response before.

In good form since wearing reapplied visor, opening his chase account at Hereford (good to soft) then second at Warwick (soft), both over 3m1f; holds solid claims in the same headgear.

Four-time hurdle winner and off the mark over fences at just his third attempt when positively ridden for a narrow success at Hereford (3m1f, good to soft; in this new headgear combination); will need to be every bit as good again if he's to defy a 7lb rise.

Form & Verdict

Ex-French 6yo who was runner-up over hurdles on British debut in November 2022; yet to build upon that performance and although latest start (2m5f chase on heavy) was a step back in the right direction, his jumping left a fair bit to be desired.

Largely consistent over fences this season, pipped at Taunton (2m7f) on last two outings; sometimes wears cheekpieces and had a visor on latest start; more to prove if the ground is worse than good to soft.

Not entirely straightforward but has been largely consistent over fences this season, caught in only the final strides over C&D (good) a fortnight ago; visored first time (has run well in cheekpieces before); another prominent showing is on the cards.

Not entirely straightforward but has been largely consistent over fences this season, and shaped as though today's move back up in trip would suit when a strong-finishing third at Doncaster (2m3f, good) a fortnight ago; high on the list.

Form & Verdict

Right out of form on last three outings, admittedly over hurdles but they are a major concern; the plus side is that she's 3-4 over fences under rules (also 3-17 in points), stays the trip, probably fine in the mud and has a competitive mark.

Just 1-14 over fences and ran poorly in May when last seen; however, the chase win came last November (3m, good to soft) after a similar layoff and his stable is in great form at present; possibilities off a workable mark.
