Form & Verdict

Ex-Irish; strong puller who has beaten only one horse in three runs this season when creditable third of four over 2m1f at Kelso last time; tried in a hood for the first time to try and make him settle better; perhaps best watched for now.

Very well handicapped on some of his 2022 form and made encouraging seasonal debut when third of five over C&D (good to soft) in November, but two disappointing efforts have followed and he needs to turn things around.

Form & Verdict

Formerly a smart hurdler; not as good over fences, although on a really good mark at present and fair run when second of four at Newcastle last time (2m, heavy); visor replaces cheekpieces; could go well.

Showed some spark when second of four here (2m, heavy) in February and continues to drop down the weights; however, this 10yo has a regressive profile and hasn't built on that runner-up finish on his two starts since; has never won over a trip this far.

Form & Verdict

Runner-up to subsequent Grade 2 novice hurdle winner Kerryhill on sole start pointing in Ireland (3m, soft/heavy); made a winning start over hurdles at Sedgefield in November (2m4f, soft) but a bit disappointing since; may bounce back down in trip on chase debut.
