Form & Verdict

Tailed off in Uttoxeter handicap in January last time out but perhaps the heavy ground didn't suit; won a selling handicap hurdle (2m2f, soft) and a handicap chase (2m, good to soft) towards end of last year and he's a leading contender today if back on song.

Form & Verdict

Tailed off on both starts for this yard and needs to get back on track, but he holds strong claims on last year's Irish form and this drop in grade could trigger a revival.

Ex-Irish 9yo whose rules record is just 1-24; beaten long way at Sandown (2m4f) last month on debut for new stable; more exposed than most of these rivals and is best watched unless there's a market move.

Lightly raced 5yo who has shown some ability but she's been well beaten in both handicap hurdles and it was the same story on her chase debut in November last time out; a watching brief is advised on stable debut.
