Form & Verdict

German Flat form (dual Listed winner) suggests he has come up a bit short as hurdler, despite Taunton win and his third in a handicap at Cheltenham (2m1f, soft); disappointing without headgear in a C&D handicap last time and, having worn a hood three times, now tries cheekpieces.

Dual bumper winner; second at Wetherby (2m, heavy) on hurdles debut, to a subsequent Grade 1 novice runner-up, and went one better in tidy fashion at Haydock (1m7f, heavy) five weeks ago; this is a much harder task but he's promising.

Form & Verdict

Second on hurdles debut last May and clocked up wins in her four subsequent runs, all four on sharp left-handed tracks on good or good to soft; off since July and this is far deeper than those summer jumps races, but they were all wide-margin wins (against a pretty useful rival last time) and make her one of the top contenders on form.

Fairly useful Flat form in France for Andre Fabre (sole win 1m6f); bought for 55,000gns last July and narrowly beat a subsequent winner in 16-runner novice on hurdling debut at Ludlow (2m, good to soft; first-time tongue-tie) in October, pair clear; withdrawn once in November when ground was soft; has a Grade 1 Supreme entry at Cheltenham and needs plenty of respect.

Form & Verdict

Has run seven times over hurdles, winning only once (a maiden at Gowran in September) but he easily finished 15l ahead that day and took third of six in a Grade 3 at Fairyhouse (2m, soft) two months ago on latest outing; his jumping is still not that great but this return to the forecast better ground may suit and he's an each-way player on form.
