Form & Verdict

Won Irish point and 2m5f French chase; useful yard debut in a mixed open in January and more than confirmed that promise with a staying-on third in a competitive 2m7f event at Taunton (soft) where she would have been closer but for losing some momentum three out; good chance.

Three-time point' winner was twice runner-up in hunter chases in the spring, including when just behind Its On The Line at Cork; should be capable of a big run if ready enough on seasonal/stable debut.

Form & Verdict

Grade 2 hurdle winner in 2020 and bits of form in better races than this in recent times; out of sorts in the autumn but he might well have pegged back Forest Chimes at Stratford (2m5f, heavy) last week with a better jump at the last; this stiffer test can suit; can go well.

Only an 8yo but his rating has capitulated during the last two years and his recent form is nowhere near good enough for a test of this magnitude.

Four point wins in a maiden, restricted and two intermediates; did not run up to market expectations in a mixed open last week and cheekpieces fitted for first run over regulation fences; needs big effort to figure.

J: Mr Milo Herbert

T: Mrs N Sheppard

Four-time point winner who easily won a four-runner hunter chase over C&D (soft) on last Tuesday's rules debut; his two main rivals flopped and today's assignment is tougher, but it was still a highly likeable performance from this 6yo who could have more to offer, if this doesn't come too soon.
