Form & Verdict

Irish point winner last May; no closer than 14l in three hurdles but two of those were encouraging (one on heavy) and he's a likely improver now sent beyond 2m for his handicap debut; interesting.

Form & Verdict

Best effort since switched to chasing when only 3l away at Ludlow (2m4f, soft) two runs back but there was no obvious reason for her laboured effort next time; returns to hurdling (1-9) after a wind op and there's a competitive run in her if near her best.

Posted a win then a near-miss over hurdles last April (2m3f/2m6f, good to soft); unable to match that form over fences this season but she was a fair fourth at Ludlow (2m4f, soft) in December and has had a wind op since being pulled up last time; no surprise if she goes well now back hurdling.

Scopey 6yo who is going the right way, for all that he came up short under a penalty over 2m here last time after winning easily at Chepstow (2m3f, heavy); 4lb higher than last time but looks a good bet to give his running and returning to further is a plus.

Competitive in points; less so over hurdles but he was only 7-2 for his handicap debut at Wetherby (2m3f, soft) where he led but stopped quickly; presumably thought capable of better and he's had a wind op.

Verdict

David Pipe’s CHAUFFEUR DRIVEN has shown enough in his qualifying runs to believe he has a future in handicaps and this 3m point winner is up to a more suitable trip as well. Mumbles will give his running and he’s feared most, though Shillanavogy could have some untapped potential after wind surgery.[Alistair Jones]
