Form & Verdict

Acts on soft; went the wrong way over hurdles; half-brother to his stable's smart chaser Editeur Du Gite and showed clear signs of a revival switched to this sphere at Hereford (runner-up over 2m) last time; good chance provided he builds on that effort and stays the new trip.

Jupiter Du Gite

11st 12lb

J: Niall Houlihan

T: Gary Moore

Impressive hurdle debut at Newbury (2m, soft) last winter; nowhere near that level in five subsequent outings over hurdles but back on track switched to fences when second of eight in 2m Hereford handicap (good to soft) in January; this sometimes keen-goer doesn't appeal as certain to benefit from this longer trip.

Form & Verdict

Irish 8yo who opened his chase account with a 8l success at Gowran Park (2m4f, heavy) last month; 11lb rise is partly offset by Paddy Hanlon's claim; respected with conditions again favourable.

J: Brian Hughes

T: John Joseph Hanlon

Fairly useful Irish chaser who ended a long losing run when finally getting off the mark over fences in 2m4f Gowran handicap chase 19 days ago; has an 11lb higher mark to overcome here but he's still firmly in the picture.

Form & Verdict

All wins on good/good to soft, the most recent at Musselburgh (2m) in November; let down by his jumping in sole run since; bottom of this pack on last-time-out form and the deep ground is another negative.

Form & Verdict

Acts on heavy; close second over hurdles the last twice, latest effort at Exeter (2m5f) 11 weeks ago; chase record is far from solid but he defied a much higher mark on the first attempt (three years ago); not dismissed.

Dangerously handicapped and returned to form with a near miss at Plumpton (2m4f, good to soft; fine on soft) when 11l ahead of Maroochi; back up 4lb but he was well backed last time and looks a player.

Form & Verdict

5lb out of the weights in this field but still has to be feared, having justified favouritism (off effectively 11lb lower) in C&D contest on heavy ground three weeks ago, drawing clear on the run-in; declared 3:32 Lingfield Tuesday.

Valirann Gold

10st 2lb

J: Ned Fox

T: Harriet Brown

Kept on dourly to score at Fontwell (2m3f, heavy) in February but has not really been firing on all cylinders since; made his jockey work very hard before eventually taking modest second at Fontwell (2m2f, heavy) on latest outing; will need to race with greater zest here.

2-15 over fences, the latter win gained here (2m3f, heavy) in February; this race looks stronger, though, and he's been safely held off today's mark twice this month.

Verdict

Preference is for JUPITER DU GITE, who wasn’t totally fluent at Hereford but could well progress and go one better with that experience under his belt. Parts of his pedigree suggest the new trip is within range. Irish challenger Teescomponentsyess is second choice.[Steve Boow]
