Form & Verdict

Notoriously quirky but is a talented hurdler when on song; nowhere near best in Graded contests this term and now gives chasing another shot; disappointing in both attempts over fences but this represents a big drop in class off a very attractive mark; good chance provided he's on a going day.

A prolific winner but rarely the easiest to predict; going right-handed suits him well (dual Ascot winner) but hasn't been at his best under either code of late and failed to uphold his good Sandown record when last of four in the recent Fighting Fifth (cheekpieces tried there soon removed); was in better form when dividing Paisley Park and Champ in the rearranged version of this 12 months ago (Kempton) on his only previous attempt at 3m.

Form & Verdict

Tough task (eventually pulled up) at Huntingdon six weeks ago; solid results against her own sex over C&D (soft/good to soft) in November/December, finishing second in Listed event (form has substance) then going one better in Class 3; interesting returned to this venue.

Has improved over fences this season, initially in mares' events over 2m1f at Exeter (good to soft and soft) and latterly only just edged out in a novice handicap there last month; may yet do better as a chaser but she can't take advantage of her current mark, from 6lb out of the weights.

Form & Verdict

Bumper/hurdles winner; consistent results (232) since switched to fences, running well in first-time cheekpieces at Sandown (1m7f, soft; behind subsequent scorer) most recently; this slight step back up in trip looks ideal; holds very solid claims off same mark in the retained headgear.

Three hurdle wins; two good runs off this mark over fences (2m3f/2m), the latest at Cheltenham on heavy ground that he handles well; that was a fine effort in a good race but he did jump left on occasions and all his wins have come going that way round; no headgear until now.

Form & Verdict

Opened his chase account at Chepstow (2m, heavy) in December; couple of second-place finishes at same venue since, latest returned to hurdles; generally consistent but loses points for having the worst strike-rate in this field; overall record is just 3-34.

Won over fences here (2m, heavy) during the winter and was clear second over C&D (heavy) when switched back to hurdling in February; won't mind if the ground starts to dry out today and probably won't be far away.
