Form & Verdict

Has won a bumper and 3-7 over hurdles; thrown in on that form but he's 0-5 over fences and none of those performances are greatly persuasive; latest (upped to 3m, showed little) was his second run since wind surgery and first since leaving Richard Spencer; recent tongue-tie is removed.

Left disappointing stable debut a long way behind when scoring at Doncaster (3m, soft) last month but raced rather lazily before eventually finishing well for third at Newbury (2m6f, good to soft) on latest outing; may benefit from today's step up in trip but it's hard to predict the extent to which he'll warm to the task.

J: Sean Bowen

T: Peter Bowen

Bumper winner with a record of 3-7 over hurdles; has taken a while to get the hang of things over fences but he made it sixth-time lucky in this sphere when rallying to score at Doncaster (3m, soft; second run for new yard); now drops back to 2m6f but he's a versatile type who should have more to offer over fences; interesting off only 2lb higher than last time.

Form & Verdict

Justified favouritism at Southwell (3m) in January on second chase attempt, adding to his bumper/hurdle wins; heavy defeat at Kempton last time, which strengthens concerns about him on testing ground but connections also decide now to reach for headgear.

Won four over hurdles in 2021 at up to 3m2f, including on soft; second in a small field on chase debut the following summer and ran well to a point before taking a tired fall four out at Newbury (2m6f, good to soft) this January on his belated return; headgear (absent last time) is back; competitive mark if back to his best.

Front-runner; has improved switched to chasing this term, winning twice but he had luck on his side in a big way when scoring at Uttoxeter (2m4f, heavy) in January; disappointing favourite at Chepstow eight days ago, which is the chief negative but he also has not proved himself beyond 2m4f (one attempt); 5lb claimer is recruited.

Lightly raced 7yo who won a maiden hurdle last spring and is faring better over fences, the only one to finish at Fontwell in December; a promising winner had to work hard to get past him at Exeter since (2m3f, heavy); up 3lb but should have plenty going for him.
