Form & Verdict

Didn't jump well when unplaced favourite on handicap debut at Haydock (1m7f, heavy) in December; however, prior to that he showed considerable promise when runner-up on his first two starts, at Auteuil (2m2f, heavy) and in a warm maiden at Aintree (2m4f, good to soft), and this looks very winnable.

Second at Auteuil (2m2f, heavy) and Aintree (2m4f, good to soft) on first two starts; didn't jump well when only fifth switched to handicaps at Haydock in December and it looked like a last-flight mistake might prove costly when sent off at 8-15 back in novice company at Carlisle (2m3f, heavy) two months later, but to his credit he rallied to lead where it matters; his hurdling has to be a slight worry back in a handicap but he has the ability to rate higher.

Form & Verdict

3m point runner-up who won on bumper debut at Hexham (heavy) last March; soundly beaten fourth on hurdle debut there (2m4f, heavy) in November but may have needed the run/experience; in good hands to progress and this half-brother to Grade 1 winner Inthepocket remains one to be interested in.

J: Sean Quinlan

T: Nicky Richards

Heavy-ground bumper winner; made a meal of justifying short odds in a Hexham maiden 16 days ago (2m4f, heavy) and only one other rival completed; perhaps better judged on his superior effort here the time before and he brings potential into handicaps, especially at this trip.

Won his bumper here on heavy ground; not at his best in a 2m4f maiden here but proved that run to be all wrong when narrowly beaten by his talented market rival over 2m3f at Carlisle (heavy), finishing miles clear of the remainder; has a bright future and should be winning this.

Form & Verdict

Mixed form in points but won at 16-1 on rules debut in novice hurdle at Newcastle (2m1f, soft) last month; improvement needed to defy penalty today but his useful half-brother Evander was at his best over 2m4f and this unexposed 6yo should be suited by the step up in trip; entitled to respect.

Form & Verdict

Placed over hurdles/fences in France and the return of a hood could be a positive on his second British start; however, he was tailed off over hurdles at Wetherby (2m3f, soft) on Boxing Day and others are preferred.
