Form & Verdict

Well beaten on his three hurdle starts but last month's 26l third at Chepstow (2m7f, heavy) wasn't devoid of promise and this point winner (3m, soft to heavy) has realistic claims now handicapping off a modest mark.

Irish point winner in 2022; struggled on first two hurdling starts but shaped with considerably more promise when third here (2m7f, heavy; albeit well held in the end) last month; drops back in trip for handicap debut.

Won at Exeter (2m7f, good to soft) last November and, while he was beaten 21l when second of six at Wincanton (3m, heavy) last month, that wasn't a bad run and he could be involved this afternoon.

Came good at Exeter (2m7f, good to soft) in November, his second handicap, and subsequent Aintree third (3m, heavy) was very respectable; below form after jumping left throughout at Hereford in January but can pose a potent threat if he kicks that habit here.

Tail-flashing mare who is 0-7 and goes without the hood she's worn the last twice; however, she ran pretty encouraging races at Southwell (2m4f, soft) last month in her first two handicaps and shaped as though this step up in trip may be a good move; could have a part to play.

Suited by the step up in trip when going close at Lingfield (2m7f, heavy) in February then went one better in good style at Fontwell (3m2f, heavy) last month; has a progressive profile and holds leading claims up 7lb.

Eight-race maiden; much closer in handicaps at Uttoxeter (2m4f, heavy) on his last two outings; still needs to find extra but dam won at up to 3m1f and this longer trip may well help.

Form & Verdict

He runs off a mark 4lb lower than when runner-up in a 3m handicap at Ludlow last November and he's not without a chance, but he's inconsistent and is now 0-19 following a below-par run at Hereford last month.

Made it 0-13 when fading into a near-14l third on recent stable debut at Southwell (3m, soft); however, he was well backed and may have needed that first outing since last November; interesting to see if his backers return.

Verdict

There is a lot to like about the claims of TWP STORI (nap), who has improved since being upped to staying trips and had plenty in hand at Fontwell last time. Young At Heart has shown some staying potential and may be the the main danger now upped in distance, while R Bernard could build on last month’s stable debut third at Southwell.[Ben Hutton]
