Form & Verdict

Three wins during first season over hurdles, the most notable in 15-runner Grade 2 mares' handicap at Newbury (2m4f, soft) in March; pulled up on her seasonal return in November but she bounced back with a creditable 4l fifth of ten at Cheltenham (2m4f, soft) last month; now steps up to 3m1f but she finished well last time and has claims if she can build on that.

Won a Worcester novice (2m4f, good) in May and posted the same RPR when the runner-up reversed those placings on better terms in a rematch (2m7f, good to soft) in October; finished seventh of 20 on handicap debut at Cheltenham but an early mistake didn't help and he got hampered at the second-last; still unexposed over hurdles and he's respected back in calmer waters.

Every chance when falling two out in an Irish point last November; £90,000 buy before well-backed winner of a six-runner novice here (2m4f, good) in May by 2l from the pretty useful Ikarak, the pair clear; Ikarak reopposes with a 6lb swing but this one looks sure to improve, with this longer trip a likely help.

Lightly raced; took time to master Fortuna Ligna on return from absence at Chepstow in October (2m7f, good to soft) but ultimately won with a bit in hand; didn't seem as well suited by less of a test at the trip when a persistent close third to Midnightreflection at Ascot in November (good) but the likely good pace here will suit and she still has potential for better.

Failed to beat a rival on his chase debut here last month but he's a four-time hurdle winner who went close here (2m4f, good to soft) on his return in November; looks interesting on that form but he's untried beyond 2m4f and this is a new challenge back over hurdles; mixed messages.

Won the latest renewal of this race in 2021, and that's not his only competitive form around here; however, his last four races on this course haven't gone so well, including four weeks ago when soon in trouble; perhaps new cheekpieces can help him turn the tide but he's risky at present; 4lb out of the weights.

Won this in 2019 and two years later he was a close-up third behind Back On The Lash before going two places better the following month; his last three races here haven't gone so well, beaten 20l+ or pulled up; dangerous mark if he can turn the tide and should be all the better for a recent run over hurdles.
