Form & Verdict

Massive improver since upped in trip and switched to handicaps, winning comfortably at Newcastle (2m7f, soft) and Wetherby (3m, soft); carries 7lb penalty for latter success, but is due to go up by that amount anyway and stable's useful 7lb claimer Cameron Iles is enlisted today; good chance.

Runner-up four times in a row since returning from long absence in the auutumn, the last three over C&D on slow ground; Eleanor Williams claims 7lb today and it's reasonable to expect another big run.

Form & Verdict

Five-time hurdle winner, most recently off 4lb higher at Taunton (3m, good to soft) last March; handles testing ground, but has not been at his best this season and tends to hit a flat spot in his races nowadays.

Form & Verdict

Returned from mammoth absence with two underwhelming runs in the autumn (2m4f/2m3f), but took a step back in right direction when staying on for modest second at Hereford (3m1f, good) in December; remains unexposed over staying trips and should be fine on today's slower ground; a possible if first-time cheekpieces aid further progress.

Form & Verdict

Runner-up on bumper debut last spring and made promising start to hurdling career when fourth at Warwick (2m3f, soft) in November; subsequent defeat in Grade 2 race is easily overlooked but he was well beaten in 3m Wincanton maiden three weeks ago and has questions to answer on handicap debut.

No match for easy winner in bumper at Warwick (soft) in March and beaten 19l when fourth of 12 in novice hurdle there (2m3f, soft) in November; should do better at some point but has easily the worst form in this field.
