Form & Verdict

Sent handicapping this season with four runs on heavy ground, three of them wins; made the running for last two wins, the latest when upped from 2m4f to 3m at Haydock five days ago off same mark as today; sent out again quickly and his form did dip on penultimate start when bidding to complete a quick hat-trick, but he is due to go up 7lb for future engagements, so has a fine chance if still on song.

Ex-French mare, whose second win there was on very soft; six runs in Britain and she has come down 21lb in the process; back hurdling today after three runs over fences and also sports a first-time visor (usually wore cheekpieces in France, also on last two starts); others look more solid.

Cheekpieces last four starts, with 2m4f wins at Uttoxeter (good) and Worcester (good to soft) on first two occasions; not quite so good over 2m5f/2m7f (soft ground latest) on last two outings, while nevertheless giving the impression that he stayed those trips; needs to resume improvement.

Just a respectable fourth when favourite for recent stable debut at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) and now 0-7 over hurdles but that was his first run since January 2022 and today's longer trip will suit; could be dangerous if that recent outing has brought him on.

0-9 in points; switched to hurdling over 2m this autumn, all at triple-figure odds but showing a bit more ability with her late headway when a tongue-tie was fitted here last time; it's possible that today's handicap debut over a much longer trip will see her in a more positive light.

Easily his best form came in his only bumper; made handicap debut here (near 2m6f, good) six weeks ago and finished third of ten but he was 26l behind the first two, in a race won by Mactavish; this additional step up in trip might suit but he has major work to do.
