Form & Verdict

Returned from a break to win comfortably at Ludlow (3m, soft) and very nearly defied a penalty in another Class 5 at Exeter; however, he was found out by the rise in class (and a 6lb higher mark) when behind First Lord De Cuet at Newbury; had no obvious excuses that day other than some fences were omitted.

Lightly raced 10yo who has been progressive over fences and he made it two wins from his last four starts when making all at Wincanton (3m1f, soft) two weeks ago; up 7lb but he had plenty in hand last time and another bold bid should be on the cards.

Lightly raced 10yo; bolted up after a break at Ludlow (3m, soft) and only narrowly failed to defy a penalty under the same conditions at Exeter (headed on the line); a further 6lb higher today and this is his third run in fairly quick succession, but needs respecting nonetheless.

Form & Verdict

Should be well handicapped but this is probably his level now; second of four at Stratford (2m6f, heavy) on his second run back from a layoff and is likely to need a bit more this time.

Has slipped to a favourable mark judged on his wins over hurdles/fences at the end of 2022, but was already well beaten when unseating his rider in the Royal Artillery Gold Cup at Sandown (3m, soft) last month having been off for a year (has gone well fresh in the past); enough to prove.

Form & Verdict

Dual hurdle winner but frustratingly 0-13 over fences, finishing runner-up six times; travelled well in the reapplied blinkers last time at Newbury (2m7f, good to soft) but found little when the chips were down; still commands utmost respect in this company and he has won on heavy.

Winning hurdler who is 0-12 over fences and has finished runner-up in six of those; didn't jump well enough to give himself a chance of justifying favouritism at Taunton (3m4f, soft) 12 days ago but he ran okay; should give each-way backers a run for their money.

Stuck on a losing run but the frustrating run of defeats has been through no lack of effort; questionable whether he wants the ground quite this deep but has strong form claims.

Winless streak has just passed its four-year anniversary but the frustrating run of defeats has been through no lack of effort against younger opposition and again he ran well for a long way when a 12l third at Sandown two weeks ago (3m, soft); off a light weight and with Freddie Gingell claiming 5lb, he's a major player against fellow oldies this time.

Two good runs last winter, following a long absence, and he's well handicapped on that form; however, he's been well below his best on both outings this season and a major turnaround is needed now in cheekpieces.
