Form & Verdict

Brother to high-class 2m hurdle/chase winner Sceau Royal; had one win over 2m2f at Fontainebleau over both hurdles and fences, from eight races in total for Francois Nicolle; bought for 64,000euros in July 2021 but not seen since; has what should be a competitive mark and needs a close look for signs of confidence behind him in the betting.

Form & Verdict

Won in first-time cheekpieces at Warwick last February; two backward steps since but the latest was a hurdle race (first since 2020) on reappearance one month ago and the cheekpieces were missing; they're back today and he's well capable of a bold show if on song.

Useful chaser who looked as good as ever when winning in first-time cheekpieces last February; unraced over hurdles since 2020, though, and the cheekpieces are missing on this belated seasonal debut.

Fair second at Wincanton (2m4f, good to soft) in January and was an easy winner in first-time cheekpieces at Warwick (2m4f, good) three weeks ago; strong claims if the headgear continues to have a positive effect.

J: Adam Wedge

T: Evan Williams

Clearcut winner over fences at Catterick (2m3f, soft) in February 2022; also successful in handicap at Uttoxeter (2m4f, heavy) in an all-hurdle campaign last season and made a good return to chasing when going down by only a neck at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) 44 days ago; that form looks solid and a 5lb rise is unlikely to prevent another prominent showing.

Form & Verdict

Having a second go at chasing this term and finally clicked in this sphere when drawing 10l clear in six-runner race over C&D (soft) last time, despite jumping out to his left; back up 6lb, which still leaves him well handicapped judged on that latest run and on some hurdles form.

Should be well handicapped given his hurdling achievements but he's been below par in four chase starts (stretched out over two years); beaten 17l on heavy at Chepstow last time but that was a tad more encouraging.

Form & Verdict

Has run here just the once and it was a win, over hurdles in 2021; 1-4 over fences last term and ran well (after wind surgery) back over hurdles on reappearance this season, before a heavy defeat in hot race last month; back chasing today, probably in need of a career best.
