Form & Verdict

Won slow-ground Irish point in early 2022 and was 2-4 in novice/maiden hurdles last season; could have significant potential as a staying chaser but was pulled up on first two starts over fences (both 3m2f, heavy; cheekpieces added last time) and it takes a big leap of faith to support him today; tongue-tie added.

Maiden point winner who was 2-4 over hurdles last season with the two wins on soft/heavy; 305 days off before his recent chase debut at Uttoxeter (3m2f, heavy; 9-2) in which he raced prominently until backpedalling from five out, pulled up before three out; needs to have come on a ton since that race and cheekpieces are added.

Won North Wales National in first-time blinkers at Bangor (3m5f, good to soft) last season and posted career-best performance when making all to win readily by 8l at Sandown (3m, soft) last month; 7lb higher here but will take some catching if he slots into the same fluent jumping rhythm.

Posted career-best performance when making all to win readily by 8l at Sandown (3m, soft) in February and, despite a much less fluent round of jumping, he lost out only by a nose when returned to 3m5f at Warwick (soft) last month; might give this a good shot from the front.

Form & Verdict

Dual hurdle winner last season (2m7f/3m1f); made shaky start to chasing career in the autumn but battled on well from poor position to go close at Plumpton (3m1f soft; clear leader fell at the final fence) a fortnight ago and might make further progress over this new trip.

Low-mileage 7yo who was evidently well suited by the marathon trip when winning North Yorkshire Grand National at Catterick (3m6f, soft) in January; pulled up in gruelling edition of Devon National at Exeter (3m6f, heavy) last month but will be a danger to all if back on song here.

Short-headed by progressive winner at Carlisle (3m2f, good to soft) in December on second chase start and won the North Yorkshire National at Catterick (3m6f, soft) last month; appeared to idle in front last time and a 5lb rise could underestimate this unexposed 7yo's performance; key player.

Clear with Anglers Crag when short-head runner-up at Carlisle (3m2f, good to soft) on last month's second chase start and the winner followed up on Tuesday; this unexposed 7yo brings potential to today's marathon trip and could play a leading role, if handling the ground (unraced on soft).

Came clear to win a 3m1f soft-ground chase at Warwick in January (2lb lower; first-time cheekpieces) but it's all gone pear shaped in the meantime; perhaps another change of headgear will work the oracle but it's not hard to have doubts.

Form & Verdict

Back in good form since swapping cheekpieces for blinkers this year and kept on stoutly to win by 5l at Hereford (3m1f, soft) last month; moves up from Class 5 today but was a course winner over hurdles last spring and promises to be suited by today's trip.
