Form & Verdict

Won three times (1m2f-1m4f) on slow turf in Germany; developed into a fair hurdler for current yard, winning twice and performing with credit in handicaps in late 2023; could be well treated on his German exploits but others look safer.

Useful German Flat winner (1m4f/1m2f) in 2022; hurdling for this yard on last four starts, with 2m2f and 2m6f wins at Newton Abbot on first two occasions; better form taking minor honours in the mud in handicaps both starts since, latterly at Cheltenham (2m5f); needs extra but cheekpieces (tried two and three starts back) return and there's a big rethink on his trip.

Useful German Flat winner (1m4f/1m2f) in 2022; three hurdle races for this yard at Newton Abbot, with two wins (2m2f and 2m6f) before good third on heavy ground on handicap hurdle debut; wore cheekpieces last two starts; needs a good deal better, including as he's 4lb out of the handicap, but Flat form gives some hope.

Form & Verdict

Progressive in the latter part of 2023, winning four staying handicaps at Chelmsford; returned from a 12-week break to chase home the flourishing The Craftymaster over 2m here this month; another 2lb higher but likely to give his running.

Form & Verdict

It has been hard to fault his consistency since getting off the mark over 1m3f here last August, adding a further four AW wins (up to 2m) and runner-up on a further seven occasions; has a career-high mark to contend with but likely to be bang there again.

Form & Verdict

Won two of her final four starts for the Kublers and made a winning start for new connections at Newcastle in November (1m4f); less good twice since but tactical events over 1m2f wouldn't have played to her strengths; first run over this far could spark further progress.

Form & Verdict

Made all in 1m4f handicap at Wolverhampton on his stable debut in November 2022; useful winning hurdler in 2023 but absent since a modest effort at Cheltenham in October; only 2lb higher than for the Wolverhampton win (the placed horses are now 15lb and 5lb higher) so there can be some optimism back under this code.

Four Flat wins for Richard Hughes at up to 1m4f; poor hurdle form for new yard this winter and he returns to the Flat with something to prove; now hooded.

Fair Flat-racer who was second on consecutive 1m2f AW starts for Richard Hughes in September; unexposed over hurdles but struggled on last month's stable/handicap debut (2m4f, heavy) and probably wants better ground.
