Form & Verdict

It was always going to be tough in Newbury's Betfair Hurdle last time and he duly struggled at 25-1; had been doing well with front-running tactics but in his previous handicap he did come up short off a 14lb lower mark; soft fine, but bit to prove on heavy.

Acts on soft; front-running novice hurdler who has a solid record this term, with close second at Exeter flanked by wins at Chepstow (handicap/novice); new mark and sharp rise in class make for a tougher assignment but he's improving.

J: James Bowen

T: Nicky Martin

Last season's hood has been removed for his two handicaps this season and he's improved, comfortably making all over C&D and beaten a head at Exeter (also 2m on good to soft); that's six races over hurdles in total, so he's seen far more action than most of these, and he needs further improvement.

Form & Verdict

Remote sixth in an Ascot maiden on stable debut and dropped out very tamely on handicap debut (2m3f, soft); there was promise in his French runs (on very soft) and it's still early days, so he's by no means discounted.

Soundly beaten sixth on British debut in Ascot maiden hurdle (2m3f, good) last month but this very lightly raced 5yo could improve for the run and showed promise in France in the spring (2m3f/2m2f, very soft); has a chance.

Heavy-ground winner in Ireland; left Gordon Elliott after a disappointing Flat run in the autumn; ran okay on debut for this yard but it was all very laboured when tailed off at Chepstow ten days ago (2m, heavy).

Left Gordon Elliott after a disappointing Flat run in the autumn; ran okay to be fourth of six back over hurdles on stable debut at Kempton (2m, good to soft) and he contested a Class 2 last time at Doncaster; seems to be okay on heavy and he could have some say.

Form & Verdict

2-3 this season and finished well to narrowly repel a shorter-priced stablemate at Uttoxeter (2m4f, heavy); Oliver Boyden rides again off just 4lb higher and his ability to handle these conditions will count for a lot.
