Form & Verdict

Won maiden hurdle here last April (soft) and followed up in a Kempton handicap (good) off 2lb higher; below best in three starts since returning from a break (well behind Baddesley here in November) and cheekpieces didn't do much for him on his recent chase debut over C&D (not fluent); others preferred.

Scored only narrowly at Plumpton (2m3f, soft; second chase attempt) last month but the runner-up gives the form a solid look; however, has stamina to prove on first outing beyond 2m5f.

Only 14 races and has won three of his last five, latterly making the breakthrough over fences with an idling win at Taunton (2m7f, good to soft); today's softer surface is perhaps a greater concern than the 5lb rise.

Completed a hurdling double over 3m+ in spring 2022 and showed he retains all his ability at just the second time of asking after a long absence when 3l second in 2m4f Wincanton handicap chase 21 days ago, with reopposing pair Gingerbred and Balko Saint behind him; should go well now stepping back up in trip.

Form & Verdict

Got tired and was pulled up at Fontwell on his return from an absence; definite claims on last season's improvement when ridden out to score at Hereford (2m5f, good to soft) in April and he was perhaps unfortunate not to have followed up at Chepstow; only 5lb above that last winning mark and he's effective on soft.

Three-time hurdle winner who is rated lower over fences after struggling in her first two attempts in late 2021; however, she gave it a right go on returning to this discipline over C&D three weeks ago when conceding the lead only late on (Shaw's Cross runner-up); this is a higher grade but she is entitled to a second look.

Form & Verdict

French hurdle winner who remains lightly raced; failed to achieve much in three hurdle races for this yard and jumping has been an issue over fences, having fallen first time and then lacked fluency when beaten about 8l at Lingfield (2m, good to soft); a slower pace over this longer trip may help in that respect but reservations remain.
