Form & Verdict

1-9 over hurdles with the win coming in 2022 off 5lb lower; never dangerous from off the pace over C&D in November but ran well, as was also the case on his recent AW start (second over 1m); should get a strong pace to target and he's very much one for the shortlist.

Four Flat wins last year (including on heavy) and won in good style over C&D (good to soft) a fortnight ago, when benefiting from the strong pace; a 5lb rise may not stop him if things fall his way once more.

Dual-purpose performer who won four times on the Flat (8.3f-1m2f) last year but he's a frequent slow starter and has been well held in his last two runs in this sphere; has won here in the past but he's still 3lb higher than for his last success and others are more persuasive.

In the process of returning to form and would surely have gained a second chase success but for stumbling and coming down two out here a month ago (2m, soft; fine on drier); 4lb higher back over hurdles but Harry Atkins now claims 7lb; a three-time winner in this discipline.
