Form & Verdict

0-7 over hurdles but has done better since sent over fences, gaining a clearcut win at Sedgefield (2m5f, soft) and losing little in defeat off 6lb higher in a better race at Exeter (3m, good to soft) in January; this lesser test can suit but there are other improvers in the field.

Won small-field events in the mud at Sedgefield (2m5f) and Leicester (near 2m7f) in two of his first three starts over fences; his C&D performance (heavy) on latest outing was modest, however.

J: Chris Ward

Placed but unable to win over hurdles; has soon put that right as a chaser in going 2-3, albeit in small fields and less competitive races than this; handicap mark hasn't really gone anywhere so just a question of whether he can deal with today's classier opposition; conditions won't stop him.

Form & Verdict

Hurdle winner in 2020 but career littered with breaks; won't have a problem with this trip in the mud but worrying that he ran a lifeless race at Wetherby (3m, soft) in January, given his good effort over that C&D last spring; first-time blinkers replace cheekpieces; yard has better prospects with Here Comes McCoy.

Form & Verdict

Looked all about stamina when winning 2m3f maiden hurdle at Lingfield (heavy) for previous yard; had an irregular heartbeat when pulled up on stable debut but has since given a likeable display to win over C&D (soft); up 6lb against better opposition but he can progress as a chaser.

Form & Verdict

Solid form when making a successful chase debut over C&D (good to soft); ran no sort of race here in January in first-time cheekpieces but the headgear was dispensed with at Plumpton (3m2f, soft) yesterday and he won that amateurs' handicap, albeit fortunate to do so after clear leader unseated at the last; has 7lb penalty if he turns out again one day later.
