Created pretty good impression when causing 16-1 surprise on rules debut at Fontwell (2m1f, soft) in January and also ran well when clear second at Plumpton (2m4f, soft) last month; drops back in trip; respected.

Form & Verdict

Just did enough to win Chepstow maiden (2m3f, soft) in January and probably ran to similar level of fairly useful form when close second in cheekpieces on both subsequent appearances; proven on heavy ground and has a big role to play here; blinkers tried today.

J: Micheal Nolan

T: Philip Hobbs & Johnson White

Fell on second hurdle start but he showed no ill effects when staying on stoutly to win at Chepstow in January and he gave a genuine display in defeat at Taunton (2m3f, soft) 18 days ago, where first-time cheekpieces (retained) seemed neither here nor there; solid claims.

Form & Verdict

Won course bumper in February 2022 and made fairly encouraging hurdle debut the following October but was not seen again until Plumpton last month, where he raced too freely and finished about 32l behind Johnny Jump Up; needs to have taken significant benefit from that outing.

Verdict

Livin On Luco has pretty solid claims and is unlikely to go down without a fight but JOHNNY JUMP UP has shown a slightly higher level of form and probably has more potential.[Chris Wilson]
