J: Rex Dingle

T: Chris Gordon

Lightly raced 7yo with some scope about him; won over hurdles and he would be 2-2 over fences but for getting short-headed at Newbury in January; had something in hand when going one better back there a month ago (2m; raised 8lb); those runs were on soft/heavy ground but trainer reckons goodish ground will suit him well, as should this return to further.

J: Rex Dingle

T: Chris Gordon

Maiden hurdle winner who so nearly defied a penalty at Fontwell last January; first run since when too free for his own good and beaten 19l on handicap debut at Lingfield (2m3f, good to soft); has a pointing background and fences could be the making of him.

Had wind surgery (his third) since last run and takes a drop back in class; fairly useful on his day but is more exposed than some of these rivals and doesn't look especially well treated in this field; both chase wins remain off lower marks.

Built upon previous promise when bolting up at Haydock (2m, soft) in November, and heavy ground may have been too much back there last month; clearly very talented when things click but this is a much tougher race than the one he won two starts ago and he needs to prove he's up to the task.

Form & Verdict

Ex-French 7yo who recorded an easy success in similar event at Ludlow (2m4f, soft) last month on British debut and return from very long absence; bred to be as effective back down in trip and is the type to improve further; could well defy a 10lb rise provided the bounce is avoided.

Ex-French 7yo who won easily on his stable debut at Ludlow (2m4f, soft) in February; well beaten the next twice and his stamina isn't guaranteed, but he ran well for a long way in a prominent pitch in the Kim Muir at Cheltenham (3m2f, soft) last month and this track is less demanding; not written off.

Ex-French 7yo who returned from long absence at Ludlow (2m4f, soft) last month and was an impressive winner on stable debut; remains lightly raced and retains potential, but he was a well-beaten third of five at Newbury (2m, heavy) a fortnight ago and isn't bred to be a stayer; others are more solid.

Form & Verdict

Ex-Irish 7yo who made all in novice handicap at Huntingdon (2m, good; off 4lb lower) last month on chase/stable debut, adding to his soft-ground point success; should have more to offer over fences and commands plenty of respect.

Made all in a novice handicap at Huntingdon (2m, good) on January's stable debut but was then tailed off at Newbury when soft ground shouldn't have been too great an issue; well beaten when tried in cheekpieces by Gordon Elliott but the tongue-tie is new; hard to rule out.
