Form & Verdict

Maiden in Ireland but was getting better when last seen in home country and he justified good market support when a convincing winner of 1m7f Catterick maiden hurdle (heavy) for new yard three weeks ago; mark left unchanged for handicap debut; major factor.

Ex-Irish 6yo who started off for Olly Murphy with comfortable wins at Catterick (1m7f, heavy; maiden) and Lingfield (2m, heavy; handicap) this year; upped significantly in grade today but could still have a lot more to offer over this longer trip, and useful 5lb claimer Dylan Johnston is enlisted.

Form & Verdict

Soft-ground bumper winner; has taken time to come to himself over hurdles but fitting a tongue-tie seems to have helped and he followed a good Uttoxeter run with a relentless display under Benjamin Macey at Fontwell (both at about 2m1f on heavy) last month; up 7lb; has more to come.

T: Jonjo O’Neill

Soundly beaten on chasing debut last April and has reverted to hurdling this term; opened account with 7l course win last month (2m1f heavy) and bumped into a improver when second of four at Lingfield (2m, heavy) three weeks ago; contender if all goes to plan on this second attempt at chasing.

Form & Verdict

Won 2m5f novice hurdle (good) in 2021 but yet to make a go of it in handicaps and was returning from an absence when a remote finisher on stable debut over C&D 12 days ago; best watched for now.

Form & Verdict

Ready hurdle winner in France in September 2020 but not seen after for two years and was a well-beaten outsider at Ascot in November 2022; off again since and will do well to beat two in-form rivals on his return.

Won sole French start (hurdle; good); well-beaten outsider at Ascot in November 2022 after 796 days away and had another 473 days on the sidelines prior to struggling on handicap debut at Lingfield (beaten when falling); still early days but a good bit of guesswork involved to make a case.

Won his only French hurdle start by 9l (on good) but not easy to gauge what he achieved and he looks the stable second string on this return from a long absence; probably best watched.
