Form & Verdict

Won quite comfortably on seasonal/handicap debut at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) in October and probably ran just as well when rallying second at Kempton (2m5f, soft) last month; did not convince stamina-wise when attempting 3m in between but is probably worth another crack at this trip; sports first-time cheekpieces; major player.

Was looking on about the right mark after his successful handicap debut at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) in October but stepping up to 3m in new cheekpieces triggered a vastly improved performance at Wincanton (heavy) where he was in command a long way out and won by 21l; in deeper waters this time with a 12lb higher mark to cope with, but he's unexposed at the trip.

Came good at Exeter (2m7f, good to soft) in November, his second handicap, and subsequent Aintree third (3m, heavy) was very respectable; below form after jumping left throughout at Hereford in January but can pose a potent threat if he kicks that habit here.

Returned from long absence with fair fifth at Wetherby (2m3f, heavy) in November; pulled up at Haydock (3m, heavy) since but today's return to better ground could be a plus, with her win in a maiden hurdle at Perth (2m4f) in April 2022 coming on good to soft going.

Form & Verdict

Lost his way a bit after last June's quite impressive Southwell maiden win (2m4f, good), and his Flat pedigree raises doubts about the suitability of today's stamina test; however, he returned from a break with an encouraging third at Hereford (2m3f, soft; first-time tongue-tie) last month and is not yet fully exposed.

Quirky customer who often races lazily; well suited by a slog in the mud and now 11lb lower than when making all at Exeter (2m7f, heavy) 14 months ago but it's hard to predict the extent to which he'll warm to the task.

Multiple winner off higher marks over hurdles; best form this season when second off 8lb higher at Chepstow (2m7f, heavy) in December; has an unconvincing record over fences but returns to this sphere looking attractively handicapped.

Form & Verdict

Looked as good as ever when winning by 6l here (2m5f, heavy) in January and should be fine over today's longer trip but he's on a fairly tough mark now and needs to put last month's disappointing Ascot run behind him.

Placed on first three starts this season and never better than when winning at Wincanton (2m5f, heavy) on latest; did it in good style that day (only his second win from 22 starts) from Astronomic View and Don't Rightly Know but now 6lb higher and unseen over this sort of trip since 2021.
