Form & Verdict

Sole win came in a selling hurdle at Stratford (2m2f, heavy) last April, and was a beaten favourite on first start for this trainer back there a few weeks later; jumped moderately on chasing debut here (2m5f; first-time hood) in November; enough to prove with hood removed and a tongue-tie fitted.

Dropped back in trip to produce a career best at Sedgefield (2m1f, soft) latest, when making virtually all; 8lb rise will demand more but he is much respected.

Form & Verdict

Fared okay on stable debut here (2m3f, soft; fourth of seven) last month, and has also shown ability over this shorter trip in France; continues to ease in the weights so this looks a suitable opportunity; should make his presence felt given the benefit of that comeback run; chance.

Ex-French 6yo who failed to threaten at Market Rasen (2m3f, soft) latest and is now 0-16; however, his mark continues to fall and he kept on for a good second there (2m1f, good to soft) in January; possibilities if cheekpieces have positive effect (they didn't on sole previous use in France in 2022).

Form & Verdict

Yet to win over fences (0-21) and has struggled badly for form, twice becoming detached, since joining this trainer; often placed over fences in Ireland last summer (similar trips) but his best efforts at Limerick and Downpatrick came on good ground; a risky proposition.

Record of 1-37 but his win came under a prominent ride in a handicap here (2m3f, soft) last month; up 4lb for that narrow success but his confidence should be boosted and he could go well again back in trip.

Longstanding maiden who is 2lb out of the handicap; creditable efforts on last two starts (behind Cokytho on first occasion); interesting jockey booking, but other runners appeal more.

Form & Verdict

Reasonably effective over fences so far (0-3) and could strip fitter for last month's comeback run at Bangor (2m1f, heavy) when second of eight, beaten 15l; arguably needs more to break the maiden but is open to more improvement with Brian Hughes booked for the first time; good opportunity.

Form & Verdict

Still seeking a first win (0-22) and pulled up on last attempt over fences at Hexham (2m4f, soft) in October; no positives are taken from three subsequent hurdle runs but is in freefall in the handicap and his doubly represented trainer is bang in form.
